“When you’re winning here, there’s no better place to play. But when you’re not playing well here it’s definitely tough.”
Carey Price knows all too well how difficult it is to be the starting goaltender in a big NHL market. Drafted by the Montreal Canadiens in 2005, he admitted in a recent interview on NHL.com that he’s [...]
Let’s review the facts.
The New Jersey Devils entered the Wells Fargo Center with an 0-6-4 record in their last ten games.
The New Jersey Devils entered the Wells Fargo Center without having held a lead once in the month of April.
The New Jersey Devils left the Wells Fargo Center with two points after shutting out the [...]
If the Philadelphia Flyers’ 5-2 loss to the New Jersey Devils on Wednesday was “rock bottom,” their 2-1 shootout victory on home ice was a positive step in the right direction.
Not “perfect,” but it will do.
Goaltender Ilya Bryzgalov, once again being brought into the “buyout” conversation, provided ammunition to shut down his critics by stopping [...]
The Philadelphia Flyers have officially reached the halfway mark of the 2013 NHL season.
The team was looking for its third win in a row tonight against the New York Rangers, which would have been the first time all season that they had accomplished this feat.
Instead, an overall sloppy and disorganized effort was on display and [...]
I had thought that the days of nail-biting, back-and-forth, high-scoring barnburners between the Philadelphia Flyers and Pittsburgh Penguins would be over after the 2012 Stanley Cup quarterfinal series wrapped up.
The second “Battle of Pennsylvania” game this season matched the intensity of that playoff series goal-for-goal, though, with Jake Voracek completing a natural hat trick to [...]
The Philadelphia Flyers desperately needed to grind out a win against the Winnipeg Jets this evening after stumbling the night before in Toronto.
It wasn’t just a matter of earning another two points (though that is obviously the bottom line). If they were to drop two in a row at the beginning of this latest road [...]
The Philadelphia Flyers did not fare well in their first foray against the Tampa Bay Lightning this season.
Coming off a 7-1 blowout against the Florida Panthers, the defense and special teams faltered in front of shaky goaltending from back-up goaltender Michael Leighton.
In their second of three match-ups, though, the Flyers bounced back with a solid [...]
There is no player or personnel in the Philadelphia Flyers’ organization that entered the 2013 NHL season with more pressure on his shoulders than Ilya Bryzgalov.
When the news broke five or so weeks ago that the NHL was willing to accept compliance buyouts to help teams get under the salary cap for the 2013-14 NHL [...]
The silver lining of the Philadelphia Flyers’ season to date is that Ilya Bryzgalov has performed like a confident starting goaltender should. He ranks 8th in the NHL in goals-against-average among goaltenders with at least four games played.
It’s a shame that the offense can’t support his efforts.
There was optimism heading into tonight’s game against the [...]
Philadelphia Flyers head coach Peter Laviolette mixed up his forward line and defensive pair combinations ahead of tonight’s game against the New Jersey Devils in an attempt to develop chemistry.
The experiments blew up in his face, as the Devils shut out the Flyers 3-0, who have now advanced their season record to 0-3-0.
Jake Voracek replaced [...]
