Tonight the Philadelphia Flyers (22-11-4) will host the Chicago Blackhawks (24-11-4) for the first time since the team skated around Wells Fargo Center with Lord Stanley's Cup high above their heads.

No one will ever forget the strangeness of the goal that ended game six, as Patrick Kane stormed the Philadelphia net and exploited Michael Leighton’s open five-hole.

Flyers / Rangers: Classic Matchup For First

The Philadelphia Flyers (22-10-4) and the New York Rangers (23-9-4) will meet today at Citizen's Bank Park and take part in the fifth annual Bridgestone Winter Classic.

Although the rivalry between the Flyers and Rangers is a familiar one, the confines in which this game will be played is not. There will be some factors in this game that can not be game planned for, one of which is the wind.

Seems Like Old Times : Flyers To Face Old Nemesis

The Philadelphia Flyers (18-7-3) and the Washington Capitals (15-12-1) will face off tonight for the second time this season.

In their first meeting, the Capitals scored three quick goals early in the third period stretching a slim one-goal lead to four, cruising to a 5-2 victory.

Game Day : Flyers @ Habs

The Montreal Canadiens look to end their six game losing streak tonight as they host the Philadelphia Flyers at the Bell Center.  

It seems home games are no advantage to the Habs this season, they have yet to win any of them.  Fans, media and the players themselves can't seem to stop their heads from spinning.  

There is a pile of reasons that can contribute to their lack of success, but it seems that the coaching staff is taking most of the heat.  I won't go on to much about that but take a look at what George Prax had to say about it.

The Flyers have chemistry.  What's chemistry you ask? Well, its when 3 players on a line lear...

Pronger named new Captain

 

In a move that surprised few and validated many, the Philadelphia Flyers announced late Friday afternoon that Chris Pronger was named the 18th captain in franchise history.

Since Pronger's arrival in Philadelphia many have argued that the 6'6" defensemen's demonstrative attitude and commanding style of play made him the perfect candidate for team captain.

In the process of trading away the two young veterans, the organization opened up a spot for a more prospective future to emerge.

Now that Ville Leino has also left the team, it has become ...
