Flyers Look to Keep Rolling In Toronto

Riding a three-game winning streak, the Flyers look to make it four. They go to Toronto to face the Maple Leafs, who are also on a three-game run.

Flyers Stifle Boston; Snap Four-Game Skid

For the first time since March 15 the Flyers knew what it felt like to win a game.

The Flyers snapped a four-game losing streak, beating the Bruins 3-1 Saturday afternoon. It was a hard-earned win for the Orange and Black, who ran into a long string of bad luck the past two weeks.

Ilya Bryzgalov was absolutely fantastic in the win, stopping 33 shots to earn the win.

Escape From Losing Island: Flyers Host Islanders; Look to End Losing Ways

The last time the Flyers played the Islanders they won 7-0. A near-repeat performance could do wonders on their psyche. A win in general would also suffice.

Comeback Identity Plagues the Flyers

Rewind to the Spring of 2010. The Philadelphia Flyers, down 3-0 in the Stanley Cup semifinal round, came back to take the series against the Boston Bruins while down 3-0 in game seven. The comeback mentality of the Flyers started then, and it hasn't let go.

That moment in Flyers history may be a fond one, but it may have ruined the current cast of players. Expecting comebacks every night takes a lot of stamina and endurance to pull off. It shouldn't be expected on a nightly basis.

Nash, Stepan Dominate Flyers

It was milestone night in Philadelphia, but unfortunately for them, the milestones all belonged to the Rangers.

On a night where three Rangers reached impressive plateaus, the Flyers hit rock bottom. They dropped an embarrassing loss to the Rangers, losing 5-2 to knock them down to 14th place in the Eastern Conference.

The win for New York was the 400th career win for their head coach, John Tortorella.

Derek Stepan had a tremendous game for the Rangers, putting up a dominating four-point night.

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.

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.

Shock the Conference: Flyers Look to Ride the Lightning

The Flyers are still in desperation mode. Coming off a couple days off, they look to take a pair of points in Tampa Bay, something they failed to do the last three times they visited the Lightning.

Bryzgalov Backs Up Comments; Rock Solid During PK, Shoot-Out

The Flyers had five minutes of overtime to work with in hopes to not allow the game to carry to a shoot-out.

What many consider to be a glorified skills competition, the Flyers have considered their lack of success in the final determination of the second point to be a nightmare. It's been especially hard on Ilya Bryzgalov, who was going to be the netminder of choice in the Flyers dance with chance.

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.
