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 [...]
It’s appearing more and more likely that Sergei Bobrovsky has played his last game as a Philadelphia Flyer.
It’s been suggested before, both on this site and by the by the venerated TSN reporter Bob McKenzie, that the Flyers could be in the market this summer for a more experienced back-up goaltender.

His latest post, though, intrigued me:
“The Flyers are looking to fill a MAJOR need [...]
A day after the Eagles clawed their way back from a monumental deficit against the New York Giants, the Flyers laid a dud against the Florida Panthers. As the last game before having eight days off, the players stressed beforehand how critical it was that they didn’t sleepwalk through this game.
