Flyers Squander Lead, Fall to Ducks

A 2-1 lead going into the third period of play vanished into thin air as the visiting Anaheim Ducks defeated the Philadelphia Flyers 3-2 on Tuesday night.

After being outshot by a 16-6 margin in a Ducks-dominated third period, Anaheim's Kyle Palmieri scored on a breakaway and on a beautiful tip-in to put his team on top. Palmieri had just one goal this season coming into tonight.

Flyers Send McGinn to Adirondack; Activate Hartnell

The Flyers have activated left winger Scott Hartnell, who is set to play against the New York Islanders on Saturday.

To make room for Hartnell on the roster and in the lineup, the Flyers have loaned left winger Tye McGinn back to the Adirondack Phantoms of the AHL. McGinn has a team-high three goals in four games, but his ice time drastically diminished his last two games.

Despite Win Flyers Still Making Same Mistakes

The Flyers snapped their four-game losing streak, beating the Rangers, 2-1, on Thursday.

Another great effort by Steve Mason - 29 saves on 30 shots - finally earned the netminder his second win of the season. But despite his solid play in net, it was almost for naught once again.

Granted the Flyers won the third period, 1-0, they nearly coughed up the lead in the frame several times, and in fact, almost did so.

J.T. Miller's goal with over 14 minutes left in the third tied the game up, 2-2. But fortunately for the Flyers, the play was reviewed and it was determined that Miller clearly kicked the puck into the net.

Flyers Woes Continue After 4-1 Loss to Pittsburgh

The Philadelphia Flyers offered up what has been status quo this season by scoring just one goal in a 4-1 loss to the Pittsburgh Penguins on Thursday evening.

For the Flyers, breakdowns were the name of the game. Three of Pittsburgh's four goals, empty-netter notwithstanding, resulted directly from bad breakdowns.

After a scoreless first period, the Penguins opened the floodgates first.

Michael Raffl and Kimmo Timonen could not clear the zone, leading to a turnover. A quick snap feed from Evgeni Malkin found blazing hot Jussi Jokinen who sniped home his fourth of the season to make it 1-0.

McGinn Emerges as Flyers' Model Forward

Tye McGinn received an 18-game trial period with the Philadelphia Flyers last season.

He wasn't incredibly productive offensively, but he showed glimpses of being a consistent, big-bodied presence on the wing.

Just two games after being called up from Adirondack (AHL), he has scored three goals, including two in Tuesday's 3-2 loss to Vancouver.
