The Philadelphia Flyers’ roster is currently absent defensemen Chris Pronger, Nicklas Grossmann, Braydon Coburn, Andrej Meszaros, Marc-Andre Bourdon and Matt Walker.
You can now add Kimmo Timonen to that list, as he did not return to the ice after taking his fourth shift of the third period in the Flyers’ 5-3 victory over the Toronto Maple [...]
“The guys want it. You can see it. You can talk about the battle and the compete. That’s how they’re playing… they sense it. They believe. There’s hope. Those are some powerful things.”
That quote came from Todd Richards, head coach for the Columbus Blue Jackets, courtesy of Aaron Portzline of the Columbus Dispatch.

It shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone that has watched the Philadelphia Flyers over the last two fifteen months that their defensive core needs improvement.
Two names that have been regularly linked to the Philadelphia Flyers in trade talks are defensemen Dustin Byfuglien and Jay Bouwmeester. Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun is the latest reporter to address [...]
The Philadelphia Flyers have officially reached the halfway mark of the 2013 NHL season.

The Philadelphia Flyers desperately needed to grind out a win against the Winnipeg Jets this evening after stumbling the night before in Toronto.

“Eklund” of HockeyBuzz posted this evening that Philadelphia Flyers defenseman Kimmo Timonen would be re-signed to a one-year extension, according to a text from a teammate.
