Flyers Penalty Kill Looms Large Against Nashville

The Philadelphia Flyers 4-1 victory over the Nashville Predators on Thursday night was one of the team’s most complete games of the season.

With all four forward lines operating like a well-oiled machine, the team managed to shell shock a Nashville team that was in the midst of a five-game winning streak.

The standout moments came in the form of Wayne Simmonds’ two-goal night, the energy of his line with Brayden Schenn and Zac Rinaldo, and the near flawless play of Ilya Bryzgalov.

However, it can’t be understated how important the team’s penalty kill was in the game’s outcome.

Meszaros displays glimpse of upside in 500th Game

Andrej Meszaros is more than comfortable playing in Ottawa’s ScotiaBank Place.

Drafted by the Senators with the 23rd overall selection in the 2004 NHL Entry Draft, he called the arena home for three seasons.

On Sunday night he returned to the arena, this time as a member of the Philadelphia Flyers, to play in the 500th game of his professional career.

Flyers win seven straight without Pronger, Giroux

Nothing is going to stop this Flyers team it seems.

With their captain and leading scorer on the shelf for an extended period of time, the Flyers persevered another big challenge.

The Canadiens had an answer for the Flyers first three goals. But it was the final tally early in the third period that Montreal couldn't respond to and the Flyers went on to win, 4-3, Thursday night in Montreal.

It was the seventh straight win for the Flyers, who are rolling despite finding out their leader Chris Pronger will miss the rest of the season with severe post-concussion syndrome. They improved to 12-4-1 on the season without their captain, an impressive feat when looking at his impact when on the ice.

Game Day: Philadelphia Flyers @ Phoenix Coyotes

The first matchup featuring the Phoenix Coyotes and departed goaltender Ilya Bryzgalov didn't amount to a result they liked, what with Matt Read scoring the game-winning goal with just 18.6 seconds remaining in the final frame. Now, in their own barn, the Coyotes are looking for proper revenge. Problem is, they may not even get it as Sergei Bobrovsky might get the start in goal for the Flyers as they visit Jobing.com Arena.

The Flyers last faced another former team of Bryzgalov's, Anaheim, less than 24 hours ago. The Ducks got the jump on them with three goals, but the Flyers came back to take the game in overtime, 4-3. Phoenix is coming off a 1-0 loss against Winnipeg ...

Time to Stop Meszing Around

With Chris Pronger expected to miss at least one month, Andrej Meszaros will have the opportunity to re-establish his role on the team.
