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.

Back-up Goalie Showdown in the QC

The Flyers head to the QC to take on the Montreal Canadiens. Habs fans are loud and raucous, so will it affect Brian Boucher? Will Peter Budaj prove to be a worthy back-up for the sick Carey Price?

Devils Put Out Flyers Early Spark to Win, 5-3

The Flyers got lucky in the first. But they weren't so lucky in the second.

Mishaps in at the beginning of the first two periods set the tone for the Flyers in their 5-3 loss to New Jersey, Friday night.

Just 40 seconds into the game, Ilya Kovalchuk hooked up with Travis Zajac to put the Devils up 1-0. Zajac fired a wrister that snuck underneath the right arm of Ilya Bryzgalov to put the Devils on the board before a whole minute could come off the clock.

Bryzgalov's Bounce-Back Effort Fuels Win over Jets

24 saves by Ilya Bryzgalov, a rejuvenated defensive effort and two assists by Jakub Voracek propelled the Philadelphia Flyers to a 3-2 victory over the Winnipeg Jets on Tuesday night.

The Jets swarmed the Flyers early. Amongst a deafening chorus of "Il-ya" chants from the Winnipeg faithful, a bank off the end boards took an odd hop and Bryzgalov stretched out to make a great save on Bryan Little to keep the game scoreless early.

Flyers Leave Room For Improvement At the Quarter Mark

After what was looking to be a year without hockey, we found ourselves at the quarter-mark of the 2013 NHL season.

It's already been a fun-filled first three weeks of hockey. Perennial giants are struggling, some super stars are still in search of their scoring touch and even the Chicago Blackhawks have managed to play their first 11 games without a regulation loss.

12 games into the 48-game shortened season, the Flyers find themselves with a 5-6-1 record and 11 points, good for third place in the Atlantic Division.

At that point, they sit behind the first place Devils (7-1-3; 17 points) and second place Penguins (8-4-0; 16 points). It could be much worse, especially since the Flyers were at one point 2-6-0 to start the season.

Brayden Schenn Breaks Out With Three-Point Game

It had been a pretty quiet season for Brayden Schenn thus far through the first quarter of the shortened year.

But finally, the younger Schenn brother broke out for his first mult-point game of the year. His goal and two assists lead the Flyers past the Hurricanes in a 4-3 overtime win.

Fist Pump: Danny Briere Wins It In OT For Flyers

Poor play in the third period almost cost the Flyers two points once again.

This time, Danny Briere came to rescue of those points, beating Cam Ward in overtime to send the Flyers to a 4-3 win over Carolina. It was their fourth straight game earning a point, going 3-0-1 on the four-game home stand.

It was also the second straight game the Flyers spend in overtime, having lost to the Panthers 3-2 in a shootout on Thursday.

The Flyers were able to end it before they got to the shootout this time. Briere broke into the zone and skated across the slot, faking a pass to Kurtis Foster before squeezing the wrister through Ward's legs to win the game.

Flyers Look to Win Three Straight; Host Florida

The Flyers look to shed their losing ways and earn their third straight win. They host the Panthers, who they romped 7-1 back on January 26 in Sunrise, FL.

Struggling Flyers Host Hurricanes

The Flyers look to snap a three-game losing streak against a hot Hurricanes team. The Flyers are also starting a four-game home stand in which they start and finish versus Carolina.

Capitals Dig Deep to Beat the Flyers in Washington

The Capitals were supposed to be the tired team coming into tonight.

Instead they were the aggressor in Friday night's match in Washington. They seemed to have the extra step on the Flyers throughout the game, winning 3-2.

A wild third period broke the game's stalemate.
