Rangers Host Flyers at MSG

The Flyers travel to MSG to take on the Rangers. They look to attain their first three-game winning streak of the season against one of their biggest Atlantic Division rivals.

Bryzgalov Out-Works Bishop In Goalie Battle; Flyers Win 2-1

Major penalties, desperation saves and a lot of bad blood were thrown into the pot Saturday afternoon.

Those were the ingredients in a violent 60 minutes between the Flyers and Senators. Ilya Bryzgalov won the goalie battle and he helped lead the Flyers to a huge 2-1 win over Ottawa Saturday afternoon to cap the home stand.

And most importantly, the Flyers got to .500 for the first time this season. After six previously failed attempts, their seventh try at evening up their record was successful.

Flyers End Homestand With Senators

The Flyers are looking to end their homestand on a high note and create a winning streak. It's their seventh attempt at getting to .500 and the Senators stand in their way.

Giroux, Hartnell Lead Flyers to Impressive 4-1 Win Over Caps

The Flyers played that 60-minute game Scott Hartnell was talking about on Monday.

The Flyers jumped on Washington early and often, capitalizing on a tired Caps team. Hartnell and Claude Giroux each tallied two points, leading Philadelphia to a 4-1 win over Washington Wednesday night in Philly.

Gagne Returns as the Flyers Host the Capitals

The Flyers host a hot Washington team looking to rebound from their slow start. Both teams are in need of points as they near the half way mark of the season while resting in the middle of the division.

After Six Failed Attempts, .500 Seems to Be Elusive For Flyers

Six times the Flyers attempted to get their record back to .500 and six times they have failed so far this season.

At 9-11-1, you have to start to wonder why that has been the case. It happened again last night when the Flyers dropped a home game 4-2 to the Maple Leafs, playing flat for the first 50 minutes of the game.

Is it mental? Are they snake-bitten? Or is this all just one big coincidence? Regardless, the Flyers need to earn every point they can get their hands on because this is a shortened season and every point matters just a little bit more if a team wants to make the playoffs.

Flyers Struggle to Get to the .500 Hump Again; Lose to Toronto, 4-2

Getting to .500 has been an uphill battle for the Flyers and it continued on Monday against the Toronto Maple Leafs.

An absolute sluggish outing until the final half of the third period cost the Flyers a chance to even up in the standings and get some much-needed points. And though the Leafs were almost equally as sluggish, they came out with the 4-2 win in Philadelphia.

Perhaps the Flyers are pressing to get to .500, but whatever it is, the effort was poor once again. Head coach Peter Laviolette didn't think they were pressing though.

JvR Returns to Philadelphia as the Flyers Host the Maple Leafs

Former Flyers winger James van Riemsdyk returns to Philadelphia for the first time since being traded this off season for Luke Schenn. He already has a goal against his former team back in Toronto and he is looking for more.

Schenn-sational effort propels Flyers over Jets

With Matt Read scheduled to miss six weeks, the Flyers knew that the offensive contributions had to come from other places.

The Flyers answered the bell as the likes of Brayden Schenn and Jakub Voracek led the team to a 5-3 win over the Winnipeg Jets on Saturday afternoon.

With 11:03 left in the third period, Schenn worked his magic. Schenn received the puck and dished a gorgeous backhand pass to Wayne Simmonds for the slam dunk goal to give the Flyers a 4-3 lead.

It was their first lead of the game and ended up being the game-winning goal. Zac Rinaldo added an empty-netter as time expired.

The Flyers Look to Rebound; Host the Jets

After a 5-2 drubbing, the Flyers continue their home stand hosting the Winnipeg Jets. Jakub Voracek hopes to continue his hot streak as the Flyers attempt to reach .500 for the first time this season.
