Kimmo Timonen Steps it Up

Last night’s 9-8 loss to Winnipeg was a fiasco. There really aren’t many other ways to put it. It was flat out bizarre. Clearly it was not something we will witness again anytime soon. Despite the craziness that occurred, there are some positives to take out of the game.

Game Day : Flyers @ Habs

The Montreal Canadiens look to end their six game losing streak tonight as they host the Philadelphia Flyers at the Bell Center.  

It seems home games are no advantage to the Habs this season, they have yet to win any of them.  Fans, media and the players themselves can't seem to stop their heads from spinning.  

There is a pile of reasons that can contribute to their lack of success, but it seems that the coaching staff is taking most of the heat.  I won't go on to much about that but take a look at what George Prax had to say about it.

The Flyers have chemistry.  What's chemistry you ask? Well, its when 3 players on a line lear...

The Philadelphia Flyers will start their 2011-2012 season in Boston against the defending Stanley Cup Champion Bruins on the night their Stanley Cup Banner is unveiled at 7:00 pm EST at TD Garden.

Ironically in the same place their 2010-2011 brief playoff run ended in a sweep, only managing two goals for, while surrendering ten in games three and four in Boston. This is not just any ordinary opening night.

The Flyers will have to watch the Bruins organization unveil their 2010-2011 Stanley Cup Banner right before their eyes. There may be a bright side to the Flyers team being witness to that, as it could add extra motivation and set the tone for the season.

Pronger Back in Lineup

According the the Philadelphia Flyers twitter account, defenseman Chris Pronger will play in tonight's game against the New Jersey Devils. Pronger, who was recovering from wrist and back surgeries will take the ice for the first time as the Flyers captain.

Although it seemed like 'slow and steady' was the plan for Pronger's recovery, it now seems like he's back to playing shape and ready to go. This development is reminiscent of Pronger's return to action following injury. Last year, it ended up being a mistake.

Pronger named new Captain

 

In a move that surprised few and validated many, the Philadelphia Flyers announced late Friday afternoon that Chris Pronger was named the 18th captain in franchise history.

Since Pronger's arrival in Philadelphia many have argued that the 6'6" defensemen's demonstrative attitude and commanding style of play made him the perfect candidate for team captain.
