Rangers Host Flyers at MSG

The Flyers travel to MSG to take on the Rangers. They look to attain their first three-game winning streak of the season against one of their biggest Atlantic Division rivals.

Flyers, Sens Get Physical; Could See Suspensions

The Flyers and Senators made some noise outside of the Wells Fargo Center Saturday afternoon.

The big hits and the fights got the crowd vocally active in the Flyers 2-1 win over the Senators, and it will get the NHL's head disciplinarian Brendan Shanahan vocally involved sometime in the next couple days.

The highlight of the extracurricular activities came midway through the first period. Flyers winger Harry Zolnierczyk came flying across the ice to deliver a massive hit on Ottawa's Mike Lundin.

Zolnierczyk left his feet to deliver the hit, driving his shoulder into the head of Lundin. Lundin was knocked out of the game due to the hit, and Zolnierczyk got a five-minute major for charging and a 10-minute game misconduct.

Simmonds Quietly Having Another Fantastic Season With Philadelphia

Everyone's focus has been on the level of play brought to the ice by Jakub Voracek and Claude Giroux.

Both are the top two point-getters for the Flyers, and both have garnered a lot of attention for their speed, goal scoring and prolific passing. Their 25 and and 22 points respectively along with Scott Hartnell's play have made them one of the most dangerous top lines in the NHL.

Not lost in the mix of scoring has been second line winger Wayne Simmonds, who shares time with Voracek and Giroux on the top power play unit.

Simmonds has nine goals on the season, tied with Voracek for the team lead. He is fourth in points with 17.

Bryzgalov Out-Works Bishop In Goalie Battle; Flyers Win 2-1

Major penalties, desperation saves and a lot of bad blood were thrown into the pot Saturday afternoon.

Those were the ingredients in a violent 60 minutes between the Flyers and Senators. Ilya Bryzgalov won the goalie battle and he helped lead the Flyers to a huge 2-1 win over Ottawa Saturday afternoon to cap the home stand.

And most importantly, the Flyers got to .500 for the first time this season. After six previously failed attempts, their seventh try at evening up their record was successful.

Like He Never Left: Simon Gagne Scores In Return to Flyers

Like a page written out of a movie script, Simon Gagne's return to Philadelphia had all of the necessities.

Gagne scored, he sparked his team and the fans, and the Flyers beat the Washington Capitals, 4-1, in Philadelphia in front of 20,000 Flyers fans awaiting the arrival of their prodigal son.

It couldn't have happened any more perfect for Gagne, who took a red eye flight from Los Angeles yesterday after he learned he was traded back to the team that drafted him in 1998.

Giroux, Hartnell Lead Flyers to Impressive 4-1 Win Over Caps

The Flyers played that 60-minute game Scott Hartnell was talking about on Monday.

The Flyers jumped on Washington early and often, capitalizing on a tired Caps team. Hartnell and Claude Giroux each tallied two points, leading Philadelphia to a 4-1 win over Washington Wednesday night in Philly.

Long Island Iced G: Giroux's Two Goals Ices the Islanders

The captain has come to play hockey.

Only days after a candid interview in which he told reporters there has been a lack of effort on the ice by the team, Claude Giroux backed up his biting words with a two-goal effort, leading the Flyers past the Islanders, 7-0.

It was Giroux's first two-goal game of the 2013 season, and he snapped a seven-game goal drought in the process.

Flyers Look to Clear the Long Faces in Long Island

The Flyers play the first of four meetings with the Islanders. They travel to the Coliseum where they look to cool off a hot John Tavares all while finding their attitude and emotion.

Flyers Out-Shot and Out-Played In Loss to Habs

With Carey Price out with the flu and a struggling Peter Budaj in net for the Canadiens, all the Flyers had to do was put shots on net and get pressure on the back-up netminder.

They did neither of that, and frankly, that is why they dropped their ninth regulation loss of the season.

In what was one of the most miserable outings of the 2013 season, the Flyers looked like a lost team.
