Flyers Come Back, Beat Sharks

It took a "step-in-the-right direction" second period leading to three third period goals, but all ended well in the final leg of a California road trip as the Phialdelphia Flyers defeated the San Jose Sharks 5-2 in comeback fashion.

Four third period goals scored by Matt Read, Michael Raffl, Claude Giroux and Jakub Voracek led yet another third period comeback on the road. That mindset broke through on the Flyers' last extended western road trip, and it continued with this trip as well.

Flyers Silence Kings After Rough Game In Anaheim

The Flyers have just two wins in their last seven games. Both of those wins are shutouts.

The Flyers blanked the Kings, 2-0, just days after getting scorched for five goals against the Ducks. Earlier in the week, they snapped a four-game losing streak with a 5-0 drubbing of the Red Wings.

The game looked to be a low-scoring affair early as the teams tallied just 12 shots in a scoreless first.

Wayne Simmonds scored his 100th career goal in the win. It was also his first trip back at the Staples Center since 2011 when he was traded to Philadelphia, making the goal even more special.

Flyers Blank Red Wings

Good breaks favor the victors. The Philadelphia Flyers capitalized twice in the second period leading to a 5-0 shutout win over the Detroit Red Wings on Tuesday night, snapping a four-game losing streak.

Scott Hartnell added two goals while dealing with a sore foot to lead the way. Claude Giroux, Sean Couturier and Adam Hall also scored for the Flyers.

Flyers Embarrassed At Home By Bruins

Steve Mason's new goalie mask is a perfect representation of the Flyers.

His new mask has images of some of his teammates in zombie form. And much like his mask depicts, the Flyers resemble the walking dead.

The Flyers turned in another mediocre performance, losing 6-1 in embarrassing fashion to the Bruins at home. The loss expanded the Flyers losing streak to four games as well as losses in seven of their last nine games.

Tlusty's Third Period Goal Sends Hurricanes Past Flyers

Another slow start for the Flyers bit them in an unwelcoming place Wednesday night.

A shot from the point landed on the stick of Jiri Tlusty, and he put it past Steve Mason to give the Hurricanes the 3-2 lead and eventual win over the Flyers on Wednesday. It was the third time in as many games the Flyers dropped to the Hurricanes.

The game was a makeup from Tuesday, which was postponed due to the foot of snow Philadelphia got.

Pregame 1/20: Islanders vs Flyers

The Islanders return home to the Nassau Coliseum after a 6 game road trip saw them go 4-2. Today in a 1PM start they take on the Philadelphia Flyers in the back end of a home and home series

Flyers Complete Another Comeback, Defeat Islanders

As they had done eight times prior this season, the Flyers had erased a third period deficit to defeat the New York Islanders 6-4 on Saturday night in a wild affair. This ninth comeback set a new team record.

Incredibly enough, 11 of the last 15 Flyers wins have involved coming back from a deficit.

Schenn's OT Winner Slices Devils

It certainly could not have been made any tougher on Tuesday night, but the Philadelphia Flyers ended a six-game road trip with five wins, outlasting the New Jersey Devils 3-2 in an overtime victory.

Brayden Schenn sent the road warriors home happy with the game winner.

Wayne Simmonds dug a loose puck off the half boards, sending the puck to Nicklas Grossmann. The Swede fooled everyone with a fake half-slapper, sending a slap pass to a wide open Schenn who deposited the puck past a diving Martin Brodeur.

Schenn ended the night not only with a nasty gash to his midsection from Danius Zubrus' skate, but he scored two points in this game. He has scored six points in his last four games.

Flyers Olympians: Giroux Snubbed From Canada; Voracek Among Named to Olympics

The Canadian Olympic ice hockey team was announced today.

Much like the displeasure of many American fans on the snubbing of certain athletes such as Ottawa's Bobby Ryan, the Islanders' Kyle Okposo and Phoenix's Keith Yandle, a few Canadian exclusions have people upset, including an entire fan base of Flyers fans.

Claude Giroux, team captain and "best player in the world" according to Peter Laviolette, was left off the Canadian team. A lot of people are seeing red, or orange for that matter.
