Simmonds' Four Point Night Dispatches Canes

Teams destined to miss the playoffs put on 60 minutes of hockey devoid of defense and chock full of a dominant performance by winger Wayne Simmonds in a 5-3 victory over the Carolina Hurricanes on Saturday night.

18 shots in the first period for the Flyers proved the insignificant defensive pressure by the Hurricanes. In fact, Jakub Voracek almost scored within the first 10 seconds of the game forcing starter Justin Peters had to make a desperate save to keep the puck from crossing the goal line.

Flyers Look to Take Advantage of Struggling Devils

New Jersey has lost 10 straight. Philadelphia has won two in a row and are looking to keep going. Will the skid halt in Philly or will the Flyers keep hot and make the standings more interesting?

Mason Steals Show in Philly; Shuts Down Rangers

It's not often the Flyers play against Henrik Lundqvist and say that the goaltending was the difference-maker in a victory over New York.

Steve Mason was lights-out despite his team's poor offensive showing. His effort enabled the Flyers to steal a 4-2 win from the Rangers despite being out-played for much of the game.

Mason faced 40 shots, stopping 38 in the win. The Flyers got only 22 on net the entire game, leaving Mason to do all the work and steal a much-needed win from the Rangers.

Hartnell's Hat Trick, Three-Point Nights for Giroux, Voracek Lead Flyers

The Flyers offense woke up in a big way, but it may have been little too late.

With playoffs well out of reach, the Flyers exploded out of their four-game losing skid and scoring funk to beat the Canadiens, 7-3, Monday night.

The Flyers have had a problem with scoring lately but they shook that off early. Just over two minutes into the game, Wayne Simmonds created a scoring chance to put the Flyers up 1-0.

Simmonds followed his own rebound with another shot on net. The puck was then deflected in off the stick of Sean Couturier to get past Carey Price to put the Flyers on the board first.

Flyers Fall to Islanders, Further Dimming Playoff Hopes

In a truly critical contest, the New York Islanders defeated the Philadelphia Flyers 4-1 on Tuesday night, putting the Flyers 7 points away from the Islanders, who now sit in in the 7th spot in the Eastern Conference. The loss snapped a seven-game winning streak at Nassau Coliseum.

After the Flyers committed an icing, took a timeout, and failed to get the puck deep when play continued, the Islanders rushed the puck up the other way. Colin McDonald found Michael Grabner streaking down the wing after a pick by Keith Aucoin. Grabner snapped it past starter Steve Mason to give the Islanders the 2-1 lead.

Flyers Hang On to Beat Leafs

The Flyers have officially gone streaking.

Playing the latter of a grueling back-to-back, the Flyers overcame a late surge by a good Toronto Maple Leafs team, holding on to win 5-3 Thursday night. It was their fourth straight win and earned them two huge points in the standings.

Sean Couturier had a fantastic game. He was all over the ice, notching a pair of assists and seemingly looked like he was always out there despite playing just over 13 minutes.
