Flyers Preview: Back to Work

The Flyers look to continue their three-game winning streak this weekend after five days of rest against division foe Columbus and NHL top dog Montreal.

2014-15 Metropolitan Division Preview

Last year, the Metropolitan Division contained a glut of average to below-average teams.

Four teams ended up making the playoffs. The Pittsburgh Penguins, New York Rangers, Columbus Blue Jackets and Philadelphia Flyers all joined the playoff party. Eventually, the Rangers caught fire and made it to the end, only to be dispatched by the Los Angeles Kings.

This season, three teams have new coaches, and each team has a serious challenge ahead of them—whether it’s via injury, shortcoming, or unexpected breaking news.

Herein, we examine those factors.

Flyers Trade Tye McGinn; Sign D Nick Schultz

The Flyers made a pair of moves Wednesday, trading a forward and signing a defenseman.

The Flyers shipped forward Tye McGinn to the San Jose Sharks in exchange for a 2015 third round pick. They signed free agent defenseman Nick Schultz to a one-year, $1.25 million deal.

Flyers Trade Scott Hartnell to Columbus; Acquire R.J. Umberger

The Flyers have traded left winger Scott Hartnell to the Columbus Blue Jackets for winger R.J. Umberger and a fourth round pick in the 2015 draft on Monday.

Umberger, 32, recorded 18 goals and 16 assists for 34 points to go along with 26 penalty minutes in 74 regular season games this past season, his sixth with the Blue Jackets. He played three seasons for the Flyers from 2005-2008.

Flyers Lack Effort In Loss to Jackets

If in Wednesday's loss to Carolina the Flyers showed times of no effort, it was in Thursday's loss that they showed 60 minutes of no effort.
