Montreal Canadiens Fall Out of Jaromir Jagr Sweepstakes

Yesterday, TCL's own Matt Brigidi posted that Jaromir Jagr and the Montreal Canadiens were close to a deal.

Today, numerous reports came out that the Canadiens lost interest in Jagr, most likely because Jagr is seeking $4 million. The Canadiens offered the winger a one-year $3-million deal.

Philadelphia Flyers And Jaromir Jagr Hope To Reach Deal Prior To Draft, According To Report

In a report late Wednesday night by Tim Panaccio of CSNPhilly.com, the Philadelphia Flyers and soon-to-be unrestricted free agent Jaromir Jagr are working on another one-year contract for the 40-year old vet.

Flyers Devils ECSF Game 5 Preview: Hard To Think Flyers On The Brink

The Philadelphia Flyers will have to win or go home tonight as they are on the brink of elimination for the first time in this season's playoffs when they host the New Jersey Devils in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference Semi Finals.

They will be doing so without the NHL's leading goal scorer in this year's playoffs, Claude Giroux.

Flyers Vs. Devils ECSF Game 2 Preview: Jakubs Ladder

It was no surprise the Philadelphia Flyers struggled to find their game in the first period of Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals against the New Jersey Devils.

What was not known, was how long it would take the Flyers to get back to the swing of things and which players were going to lead the way.

Claude Giroux, Danny Briere and James van Riemsdyk accounted for all four Flyer goals. Briere has a history of performing well in the playoffs and looks as if it is rubbing off on JvR and Giroux who have flourished during this time of the year, as well.

One player who could fit that mold in time is Jakub Voracek.

Habs This Week: Flip Flop

Mother Nature had her way with just about everyone this past week, amping up the temperatures to trick everyone into thinking they were in mid-playoff form. Unfortunately, this was the week that the Canadiens discovered (for real) that there is no chance of that for them this year.

Cody Hodgson scored his first goal as a Buffalo Sabre and added another in the third period to procure the Sabres a win, Tuesday, against the Canadiens.

Bryz Breaks Beezer's Record; Earns Two More Points

Making Ilya Bryzgalov the story for every game has become tiresome to the fans, the front office and Bryzgalov himself.

But when he does something as special as he's done the past couple of weeks, it's hard to just take all the focus away from the Russian netminder, nicknamed the $51 Million Man.

The Flyers have been winning, and they have been playing a brand of hockey many expected them to play down the stretch. Scoring, defense and goaltending - those are the three things that win championships.

So why does the focus all come back to Bryzgalov? Because of the franchise shutout streak that he just broke that stood tall for 13 years midway through the second period.

Voracek and Jagr injured against Wings; player reaction to Kronwall hit

Injuries are a part of professional sports. Especially around this time of year, the bumps and bruises start to add up leaving almost every player with some kind of sore spot.

For the Philadelphia Flyers, this has been true all season.

The team has had to deal with so many injuries that it’s probably easier to name the guys on the roster who haven’t been hurt compared to the ones who have been.

On Tuesday night, during the team’s impressive 3-2 victory over the Detroit Red Wings the ‘healthy list’ seemingly became a little shorter.

Niemi Wins Goalie Battle at "The Tank"

There is nothing more frustrating than sandwiching a win in between two shut out losses.

After a 2-0 loss in Edmonton and a huge 5-4 comeback win in Calgary, the offense disappeared again, dropping 1-0 to the Sharks in San Jose Tuesday night.

There was one huge bright spot in the game though and it came in the form of goalie Ilya Bryzgalov.

Not even 90 seconds into the game, this game had the makings of a Bryz-aster. The Flyers turned over the puck in the offensive zone and San Jose's Ryan Clowe ripped a wrister past Bryzgalov for a quick 1-0 lead.

With that being said, it wound up being the one tally that made all the difference in this game. But be that it may, Bryzgalov picked himself up and played one of the best games he had all season, despite being on the losing side.

Flyers Look For Two In A Row In Edmonton

The Philadelphia Flyers (33-19-7) will continue on their four game road trip as they head to Alberta tonight to take on the Edmonton Oilers (23-30-6) in their only matchup of the season.

The Flyers enter tonight's game fresh off a thrilling 5-4 overtime victory versus the Winnipeg Jets, a team the Flyers are now 1-2-1 against this season.

Time is ticking: Enjoy Jaromir Jagr while you can

As the puck went through the net with 44 seconds left in overtime, Jaromir Jagr's right glove came off for his patented salute. It's been his trademark since his current teammates were skating around peewee hockey rinks.‬

The old man at the end of his career helped point out the unifying factor among every individual in the NHL.

While there are discrepancies in pay grade, talent level and strategic philosophy, the bond that every player shares is the fact that some day, inevitably, the game will come to pass them by.

For some, that day will come sooner than it will for others.

In the case of Philadelphia Flyers 40-year old forward, that day is just over the horizon.
