Vets Fuel Comeback Win

In their first game on a short west coast swing, the Philadelphia Flyers looked awful. They turned the puck over. They blew defensive coverage in front of their net. Goalie Ilya Bryzgalov looked like he was 'lost in the woods' yet again.

Somehow, some way, the Flyers came back and defeated the Anaheim Ducks 4-3 in overtime.

Giroux Leads Flyers Comback; Beat Habs, 3-1

After the first period it appeared as though the Philadelphia Flyers were in for another long night.

That of course was before Claude Giroux took control of the game.

Habs Offer Turkey for Thanksgiving

Claude Giroux scored two goals for the Philadelphia Flyers to beat the Habs on the afternoon after Thanksgiving. 

The first period was a lackluster affair as both teams were looking for their legs after having their Thanksgiving dinners. Less than three minutes into the game the Habs got called for one of their infamous too many men penalties. In true Hab fashion this season it was killed off with hardly any shots recorded on Carey Price. Nokelainen scored his first goal as a member of the Canadiens near the end of the first with assists going to Hal Gill and Josh Gorges...yes it was that kind of afternoon. The shots in the first period was 10-4 in favour of the Habs-.

Flyers Tough To Solve

Before the season, no one really knew what to make of this year's Philadelphia Flyers.

Despite the team having played 20 games, there's still no way to know.

Game Day: Phoenix Coyotes @ Philadelphia Flyers

The Coyotes held on after scoring two quick goals in the first period and seeing two quick ones scored on them to edge the Leafs in a shootout on Tuesday, 3-2.

They have now entered into Bryzpalooza.

With all the focus surrounding the former Coyotes' goaltender that famously left the desert in favour of signing a deal that would bring him 10 million dollars this season, their current man between the pipes continues to pick up wins.  Mike Smith improved his record to 7-0-2 in his last nine starts and now faces the highest-scoring team in the league.

The Flyers are two points behind the Penguins for the lead in that division as well as the entire Ea...

Flyers Trio Shines in Win Over Canes

It didn’t take Claude Giroux long to torment the Carolina Hurricanes.

Just 1:19 into Monday night’s game in Raleigh, Giroux scored on a breakaway to give the Philadelphia Flyers (10-4-3) a 1-0 lead. The breakaway started with a brilliant pass from Jaromir Jagr during a Hurricanes (6-9-3) line change.

Flyers look to Stay the Course against Canes

Coming into their last meeting, the Flyers had lost four of five. Since their last meeting, the team has gone 4-0-2 and looks to be back on course. Although much has changed in that time, not much has changed between the two teams. Matt Brigidi explains.

Line Experiment Produces Chemistry

After adding Scott Hartnell to the Giroux-Jagr line, many wondered if the Flyers other lines would have trouble producing. Three games and 15 goals later, that looks to be a concern of the past.

Opportunity Lost: Turnovers Cost Flyers a Point Against Devils

Turnovers would cost the Flyers once again as they fell to the New Jersey Devils, 4-3 by way of a shootout.

Flyers Find Spark with Hartnell, Jagr and Giroux

Following a rough start, Scott Hartnell and Jaromir Jagr are on fire after being placed on the same line. Having Claude Giroux on the line probably doesn't hurt either.
