Matt Trick: Read Nets First Career Hatty

Only a handful of hats decorated the ice at the BB&T Center in Florida during the third period.

To Matt Read it didn't matter if it was 10 hats or 1,000 hats. His hat trick helped spark the Flyers in their 7-1 rout over the Florida Panthers Saturday.

All it took for Read was three well-timed, well-placed shots for him to net the first hat trick of his career. His offensive outburst couldn't have come at a better time for the Flyers, who had scored only five goals in their first four games of the season.

Flyers Blue Line Shines In Panthers Rout

The best way to get goals is by throwing the puck on net.

That message finally sunk in at the blue line, and the Flyers offense erupted to rout the Florida Panthers, 7-1, Saturday night.

Luke Schenn was arguably the most impressive player on the ice in the win. Schenn scored on a slap shot from the point, registered an assist and added a booming team-high 11 hits.

Flyers Look to Warm Up in Florida

Riding off a huge 2-1 win over the Rangers, the Flyers want to keep rolling as they travel to Florida for the weekend. They start things off with the Panthers tonight at 7:30 PM.

5-on-3 PK Left Fans, Players In Awe

One of the many highlights from Thursday's thrilling 2-1 victory over the New York Rangers was a penalty kill in the third period.

No, you didn't read that wrong. The Flyers killing of a 5-on-3 power play that included a four-minute double minor for high sticking and a two-minute penalty for hooking turned out to be the ultimate seal of Philadelphia's first victory of the 2013 season.

High-Octane 2nd Leads Flyers Over Rangers

As the seconds ticked away in the third period, the decible level Wells Fargo Center slowly rose to a deafening crescendo.

The sounds of victory filled the Flyers barn for the first time in 2013, and they couldn't have come at a more important time.

For a moment, the Flyers put behind them a trio of injuries and a suspension to earn their first win of the season, a 2-1 final that didn't reflect just how much the Flyers dominated the game.

Offensive woes continue for Flyers

As has been the case through their first two games, the Flyers got off to a slow start and struggled with special teams once again.

Bad mistakes, bad bounces and an overall bad effort lead the Flyers to a 3-0 loss against the New Jersey Devils Tuesday night.

Flyers Fail on PK, Lose to Sabres

Questionable officiating, numerous penalties and bad penalty killing all contributed to the Flyers' 5-2 loss at the hands of the Buffalo Sabres on Sunday.

In the first few minutes, the two teams continued the feeling out process. Both teams tried to assert themselves physically, including several bouts of 4-on-4 hockey.

Flyers Clash with Sabres

The Buffalo Sabres will open their 2013 campaign against the Philadelphia Flyers, who come to town after a 3-1 loss to the Pittsburgh Penguins. Can the Flyers spoil the Sabres' party like the Penguins did to theirs?

Flyers Stumble Out of the Gate; Drop Season Opener to Penguins

A slow start turned out to make all the difference for the Flyers.

Two quick goals by Pittsburgh in the first eight minutes of play put the Flyers in a deep enough hole to keep the host team out of the game. The early support was preserved by some great play from Marc Andre Fleury, and the Penguins went on to win, 3-1, to kick off the season.
