Time for Briere to pull it together

The easiest thing to do is kick somebody while they’re down.

In the case of Philadelphia Flyers forward Daniel Briere, it’s been easy to kick him because he has been down for a long time.

Currently in the midst of one of the worst scoring droughts in his career, the 34-year old has gone 18 games without registering a goal.

Briere 'felt great' in return against Isles

It’s not common to hear cheers in warm-ups.

Yet, that’s exactly what you heard during the pre-game skate between the Philadelphia Flyers and New York Islanders before their game on Tuesday night.

The rare occasion occurred with good reason.

As Daniel Briere took his first few strides on Well Fargo Center ice for the first time since January 19th (coincidentally also against the Islanders), the few hundred that regularly gather around the team’s end during warm-ups gave the returning forward a raucous applause.

Flyers Look For Better Start and Finish Tonight Against The Isles

The Philadelphia Flyers (30-16-6) flubbed their shot at closing the gap in the Atlantic Division when they lost both afternoon matchups this weekend to the New Jersey Devils and the New York Rangers .

The Flyers were out-scored 11-6 in those games and surrendered goals at both the beginning and the end of periods.

They will look to turn things around tonight when they face the New York Islanders.

Briere, Jagr and Rinaldo Injured against Devils

The injury bug continues to plague the Philadelphia Flyers.

Following their 4-1 win over the New Jersey Devils on Saturday, it was reported by several sources that Daniel Briere, Jaromir Jagr and Zac Rinaldo have all sustain injuries ranging in severity.

Matt Brigidi fills you in on the latest.

Flyers needed more backbone in their backcheck

It doesn’t look good.

When a 4-1 final flashes on the screen, it’s evident that something went wrong.

Especially when it comes to the Philadelphia Flyers.

In recent weeks, the goaltending and defense have come under a great deal of scrutiny. At first glance, it appears as though that was the case on Thursday night.

However, the Flyers inability to gain two points wasn’t the fault of their goalie or their defense.

Focused primarily in the offensive zone, the team failed to adequately backcheck and as a result allowed the Islanders to generate offensive attacks in transition.

Secondary Scoring Supports Flyers

With so much emphasis placed on the production of the first line, it often gets lost at how talented the Flyers subsequent lines are. Although the first line will most likely continue to be the team’s most productive line, it doesn’t mean that the other lines won’t sprinkle in production when need to be.

Briere, JvR Ring in the New Year Right

Daniel Briere and James van Riemsdyk had rough starts to the 2011-12 season.

Both players had to battle through injuries and were not producing the way that many had hoped they would.

However, since the calendar has flipped over to 2012, the two players have seemed to flip with it.

Briere's Hat Trick Fuels Dramatic Overtime Win

Fewer events in sport are more exciting than a golden goal.

On Saturday afternoon fans of the Philadelphia Flyers bared witness to an even more exciting event when Daniel Briere scored his third goal of the game with 5.2 seconds remaining in overtime to give the Flyers a 3-2 victory over the Ottawa Senators.

Briere looks to pick up scoring in absence of Jagr

At this point, it’s strange when some one isn’t getting injured on the Flyers.

The unfortunate trend continued into the New Year, when Jaromir Jagr started things off as only a member of the Flyers could, with another injury.

While it will be no easy to task to replace the team’s third-highest point producer, the situation does provide a golden opportunity for several members of the team.
