Flyers Sneak Away From Colorado With a Point

The Philadelphia Flyers hit the ice in Denver Monday night seeking another win streak after Saturday’s 6-0 thrashing by the Boston Bruins. Instead, they snuck out of the Pepsi Center with a point in a 3-2 shootout loss to the Colorado Avalanche.

Philadelphia (20-8-4) struck first when Scott Hartnell scored with 1:29 remaining in the first period. On the power play goal, Jaromir Jagr saved the puck from leaving the offensive zone and quickly fired it near the net. Jakub Voracek, who has played spectacularly lately, shuffled a pass across the goal-mouth for Hartnell.

The tally was Hartnell’s 16th goal of the season, tying him with Claude Giroux as the highest goal scorer on the Flyers this season. It was also his seventh power play goal on the year.

Colorado (16-17-1) took the game’s momentum in the second period with strong contributions from their young core.

Bruins beatdown Flyers in 6-0 Rout

All good things must come to an end.

This was painfully obvious Saturday afternoon when the Philadelphia Flyers suffered their first loss in nearly three weeks at the hands of the reigning Stanley Cup champions, the Boston Bruins.

Prior to meeting Boston, the Flyers had been on a dream-like run, winning seven consecutive games and going 9-1-0 in their last ten.

Saturday proved to be a rude awakening.

Old rivalry introduced to new faces

For the Philadelphia Flyers and their fans, much of the 2011-12 season will be focused on the New York Rangers. Because of this year’s Winter Classic matchup, players and fans should expect to be inundated with questions, information and banter about the hatred between the Broad Street Bullies and the Broadway Blueshirts.

However, there is still one rivalry that has been overshadowed thus far. That rivalry includes the team on the other side of the Keystone State, the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Game Day: Philadelphia Flyers @ Phoenix Coyotes

The first matchup featuring the Phoenix Coyotes and departed goaltender Ilya Bryzgalov didn't amount to a result they liked, what with Matt Read scoring the game-winning goal with just 18.6 seconds remaining in the final frame. Now, in their own barn, the Coyotes are looking for proper revenge. Problem is, they may not even get it as Sergei Bobrovsky might get the start in goal for the Flyers as they visit Jobing.com Arena.

The Flyers last faced another former team of Bryzgalov's, Anaheim, less than 24 hours ago. The Ducks got the jump on them with three goals, but the Flyers came back to take the game in overtime, 4-3. Phoenix is coming off a 1-0 loss against Winnipeg ...
