Flyers Hang On to Spoil Briere's Homecoming

A loud ovation after a long-awaited return home greeted Danny Briere.

All that was missing was a victory. Briere didn't get that as the Flyers held on for a 2-1 win over the Canadiens to snap a three-game losing streak.

Michael Raffl and Claude Giroux both scored for the Flyers, who held a 2-0 lead into the final minute of play. Steve Mason didn't get the shutout but he made 20 stops in the win.

The win came less than 24 hours after the Flyers were hammered by the Canadiens, 7-2.

Philadelphia Flyers Buy Out G Ilya Bryzgalov

The Philadelphia Flyers have bought-out goaltender Ilya Bryzgalov.

After a cat-and-mouse game with Bryzgalov's agent, it has been made official that the Flyers are cutting ties with their $51 million goaltender. The news was broken by Flyers beat writer Anthony SanFillippo.

Flyers Fly Past Islanders In A Record Setting Blowout

Today's game was a record setting affair. It was the worst home shut out loss in team history.

The Isles, wearing their black alternate sweaters, went down to defeat at the hands of the Flyers with a final score of 7-0. However, the game probably wasn't even that close.

Flyers Devils ECSF Game 5 Preview: Hard To Think Flyers On The Brink

The Philadelphia Flyers will have to win or go home tonight as they are on the brink of elimination for the first time in this season's playoffs when they host the New Jersey Devils in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference Semi Finals.

They will be doing so without the NHL's leading goal scorer in this year's playoffs, Claude Giroux.

Flyers Vs. Devils ECSF Game 2 Preview: Jakubs Ladder

It was no surprise the Philadelphia Flyers struggled to find their game in the first period of Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals against the New Jersey Devils.

What was not known, was how long it would take the Flyers to get back to the swing of things and which players were going to lead the way.

Claude Giroux, Danny Briere and James van Riemsdyk accounted for all four Flyer goals. Briere has a history of performing well in the playoffs and looks as if it is rubbing off on JvR and Giroux who have flourished during this time of the year, as well.

One player who could fit that mold in time is Jakub Voracek.

Questions For Flyers As They Face Penguins In Game 1

Last season the Philadelphia Flyers entered the playoffs against the Buffalo Sabres with some questions surrounding their struggling goaltending and their defense.

Injuries played a factor as well, as the team was without the services of Chris Pronger who was out recovering from hand surgery.

Fast forward to this season and the Flyers yet again suffer from the injury bug as they enter the playoffs against their much maligned cross-state rival, the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Habs This Week: Flip Flop

Mother Nature had her way with just about everyone this past week, amping up the temperatures to trick everyone into thinking they were in mid-playoff form. Unfortunately, this was the week that the Canadiens discovered (for real) that there is no chance of that for them this year.

Shut Out: Wednesday, March 21st, 2012

Cody Hodgson scored his first goal as a Buffalo Sabre and added another in the third period to procure the Sabres a win, Tuesday, against the Canadiens.
 

The Sabres once were where the Canadiens are, and are now where they usually tend to be at this time of year, fighting for a playo...

Flyers Look To Keep Offense Rolling And Keep Stamkos At Bay

The Philadelphia Flyers (44-23-8) will close out their current five game home stand (their longest of the season) when the face the Tampa Bay Lightning (34-33-7) on Monday night.

Tampa Bay who are 5-5-1 in March, are coming off back-to-back wins against the Edmonton Oilers and New York Islanders respectively.

Their play this month has not been consistent nor reflective of their leading goal scorer, Steven Stamkos.

Flyers Look Like Contenders

Don’t look now, but the Philadelphia Flyers are a contender.

It didn’t seem possible when the team blew itself up in the offseason to take on young players. It really didn’t seem possible when Chris Pronger went down for the season. It didn’t seem possible when Ilya Bryzgalov kept hemorrhaging goals.

Things have changed.

Through the course of the season the plan that seemed like madness now seems like perfect sanity.

With young players stepping up and filling roles, the Flyers have been balanced and outstanding offensively.

Voracek and Jagr injured against Wings; player reaction to Kronwall hit

Injuries are a part of professional sports. Especially around this time of year, the bumps and bruises start to add up leaving almost every player with some kind of sore spot.

For the Philadelphia Flyers, this has been true all season.

The team has had to deal with so many injuries that it’s probably easier to name the guys on the roster who haven’t been hurt compared to the ones who have been.

On Tuesday night, during the team’s impressive 3-2 victory over the Detroit Red Wings the ‘healthy list’ seemingly became a little shorter.
