For one of the first times in NHL history, one of the Columbus Blue Jackets road games was circled on the schedule by opposing fans.
Jeff Carter was slated to return to Philadelphia following an offseason that saw him traded in a shocking manner. He returns tonight, but he'll watch from afar like the fans who bought their tickets when the schedule was released.
Monday, the Philadelphia Flyers announced there will be a limitation on goalie Ilya Bryzgalov’s media availability. Before the decision, Bryzgalov was available whenever needed. Now, he’ll only be available after games in which he plays.
The Flyers score eight times but still lose, 8-9, to the visiting Jets. With confidence lacking on defense and in net, questions have to be answered if the Flyers want to fight their way out of this funk. A look at the wild game, inside!
The Winnipeg Jets Fly into Philadelphia this evening to take on the Philadelphia Flyers. The Last time the original Jets team was in Philly was March 16.1996. Ron Hextall picked up a 3-0 shutout.
You can see the game on CSN-PH and TSN-Jets at 7:00pm EST.
Recently, James van Riemsdyk of the Philadelphia Flyers signed a 6-year contract extension worth an average of $4.25M.The huge problem with this extension is that it completely defeats the purpose of Restricted Free Agency.

Tuesday, the Philadelphia Flyers inked forward James van Riemsdyk to a six year extension worth $25.5 million with an annual cap hit of $4.25 million. There are two trains of thought on the extension among those who follow the team. The first is that JVR has done little to prove that he should warrant such a contract and the risk of signing the deal doesn’t make sense for someone who would have been a restricted free agent after the season.
The other train of thought is that the Flyers did the right thing by locking down one of the players who they are hoping will be a cornerstone of their franchise. With the deal, they are hedg...
The Philadelphia Flyers forever changed the face of their franchise on June 23rd by trading away the two cornerstones of their post-lockout organization, captain Mike Richards and leading goal scorer Jeff Carter. In the process of trading away the two young veterans, the organization opened up a spot for a more prospective future to emerge.
