Flyers riding win streak into Tampa

The Flyers are winner of three straight and four of the last five. None of this matters, though, with their recent struggles in Tampa.

The Flyers begin a short Florida road trip tonight as they take on one of the east's top offenses in the Lightning. That task won't be any easier as they look to end a six-game (0-5-1) skid in Tampa.

Hawks to face off against Flyers

The Hawks will face the Flyers for the first time this season, and the seasons couldn’t have started differently for the two teams.

 

The Flyers won their first game of the season just three days ago, finishing a dramatic comeback against the Dallas Stars in overtime thanks to captain Claude Giroux, but their record is still just 1-2-2, which has them sitting at seventh in the Metropolitan division and tied for thirteenth in th...

Flyers avoid shootout in comeback win in Dallas

The Flyers were sick of losing in the shootout.

After the last two overtime losses for the Flyers left them with frustrations in the skills competition, they were looking at a potential third straight shootout. But Claude Giroux scored 2 minutes, 49 seconds into overtime, completing a comeback 6-5 win.

It was the first win of the season for the Flyers. They avoided going winless in the first five games of the season for just the third time in franchise history with the win.

Flyers lose second straight shootout

The Flyers are 0-2 in shootouts this season, but at least now they're finally getting points.

The Flyers squandered a late game-tying goal by Jakub Voracek with their second straight shootout loss, this time to the Anaheim Ducks 4-3 at home on Tuesday. It's their fourth straight loss, bringing their record to 0-2-2.

Flyers Drop Season Opener to Bruins

A late goal by Chris Kelly spoiled a fantastic goaltending performance by Steve Mason, leading to a 2-1 defeat at the hands of the Boston Bruins in the Philadelphia Flyers' season opener.

In the first regular season game of the first year of his contract extension, Mason was nearly flawless. He stopped 31 of 33 shots, including several key stops. If the Flyers were to have won, perhaps a luxurious steak dinner was in his future due to his role in this game.

2014-15 Flyers Preview: Forwards

The Flyers are going to rely on a balanced offense this season with the woes coming on the back-end. How fast the offense can start up this season will be key.

The first month of the season won’t be easy either. The Flyers begin their first week with back-to-back games in Boston on Wednesday and home on Thursday against New Jersey. The rest of the month is harder than running the gauntlet with games against Montreal, Anaheim, Dallas, Chicago, Pittsburgh, Detroit, Los Angeles and Tampa Bay. On the Devils didn’t make the playoffs last season, but were in the Stanley Cup Final two years ago.

Flyers Release Statements on Claude Giroux's Butt-Grabbing Incident

Taking The Wayne Train to Broadway: Flyers Force Game 7

The Flyers are on their way to a Game 7 with the Rangers in New York.

Wayne Simmonds, who led the Flyers with 29 goals during the regular season, lit the Rangers up for a hat trick in Tuesday's 5-2 win in Game 6. It was his first career playoff hat trick and the first Flyers playoff hat trick since Claude Giroux and Sean Couturier did it against the Penguins in 2012.

Rangers Push Flyers to the Brink

After a game two victory, what seemed like an overplayed narrative of being unable to competently play at Madison Square Garden seemed to be vanquished by a 4-2, come-from-behind win. That storyline returned in full force after Sunday.

Heavily outpossessed and outchanced, the Philadelphia Flyers dropped game five 4-2 to the New York Rangers, giving Broadway the 3-2 edge over Broad Street in the series.

A lacking power play ruined any continuity the Flyers could have possibly constructed. Rangers forward Carl Hagelin took two penalties in two consecutive shifts to open the game. The result of those power plays was complete disaster.
