Pre-Game NY Islanders vs. Philadelphia Flyers 3/28/13

Isles Continue Playoff Push Against Flyers Tonight

Flyers Start Important Five-Game Homestand With Rangers

The Flyers are stuck somewhere between last place and a playoff spot. The next five games, all home, will be the final telling on whether or not this is a playoff team, or a team destined to draft high.

Tye McGinn Gets Recalled

With Danny Briere out indefinitely with a concussion, the Flyers have recalled rookie winger Tye McGinn from Adirondack.

McGinn has been out of NHL action since fracturing his orbital bone in a fight with Toronto's Mike Brown on February 25. He will continue to wear #15.

Danny Briere Out Indefinitely With A Concussion

The injury status of Danny Briere has been clarified this afternoon.

A day after being told he suffered an upper-body injury, the Flyers announced that Briere will be out indefinitely with a concussion.

Briere said he crashed into the boards pretty hard during practice on Saturday. He didn't play in Sunday's 2-1 over time loss in Pittsburgh.

The Flyers Start One More Run at the Playoffs Against Pittsburgh

The Penguins are on an 11-game winning streak. The Flyers haven't played in six days. It's a story of parody, and the Flyers have a long road ahead of them starting against the hated Penguins.

Hartnell Gets Benched; Predestined?

If a player's offensive production includes two goals and three assists in 14 games, it's easily assumed that is the stat line of a fourth line forward.

For the Flyers, it was top-liner Scott Hartnell.

The struggles continued for Hartnell, who found himself demoted in the third period of a frustrating 4-2 loss to Tampa Bay on Monday. It's safe to say the demotion was a long time coming for Hartnell, who hasn't been the same player that led the Flyers with 37 goals.

Flyers Look to Salvage Home-and-Home With New Jersey

The Flyers look to salvage two points in a must-win home-and-home series with New Jersey. They already dropped the first match up on Wednesday. They can't afford to lose again.

Flyers Continue to Cough Up Their Playoff Dreams

The Flyers knew exactly what they needed to do if they wanted to keep their playoff hopes at a manageable level.

They didn't execute though, and it was seen clearly in their 5-2 loss to New Jersey. They were docked with seven giveaways in the loss, leading to some quick first period goals that put them in an early, insurmountable hole.

An Andrej Meszaros give away behind the net gave the Devils their first goal of the game.

Meszaros coughed up the puck to the slot and Adam Henrique put a shot on net. Patrik Elias intercepted the shot in front of Ilya Bryzgalov and beat the netminder backhanded to put New Jersey up, 1-0.

Flyers Start Home-and-Home in New Jersey

The Flyers need to win their next two games against the Devils in order to keep their playoff hopes alive. If they don't, they are "done" according to goaltender Ilya Bryzgalov.

Danny Briere's Upside not Much of an Upside Anymore

Philadelphia is currently under the realization that a lot is going to be changing for the Flyers.

The team is struggling mightily, and chances of making the playoffs are very slim. This all will eventually lead to presumed roster changes.

A handful of questions are also being asked -- Will last year’s big three rookies stick around? Which defensemen will be added? And will Danny Briere still be in orange and black?

I am here to touch on that last point. I do not have an answer of course, but I stand strongly by what the answer should be.
