Finding A Goalie: Should the Flyers Go After Ryan Miller or Save the Money

Just one day after buying out Ilya Bryzgalov, the Philadelphia Flyers are already being linked to a netminder that could replace Bryzgalov.

According to Josh Rimer of Sportsnet, the Flyers are discussing a potential deal involving Buffalo Sabres goaltender Ryan Miller. It is unclear what stage the talks are currently in but it appears that there is significant interest from both sides.

Miller posted a 17-17-5 record with a 2.81 goals-against-average and a .915 save percentage during the 2012-2013 season. Over his career, the American goalie has a 269-164 record with a 2.59 goals-against-average and a .915 save percentage. The American netminder made $6.25 million this past season and carries a similar price tag to Bryzgalov.

Miller was the 138th overall pick in the 1999 NHL Entry Draft out of Michigan State and has played with the Sabres for all 11 seasons of his professional career. The former Spartan was a member of the silver medal United States team in the 2010 Winter Olympics and was the MVP of the tournament.

Isles Files: A Look Ahead To Free Agency

At most, the 2013 NHL season has two games remaining. The Chicago Blackhawks have the opportunity to send the Boston Bruins home without any new hardware, as a win tonight would make them this year's Stanley Cup Champions.

With that being said, the New York Islanders organization has been preparing for the NHL Entry draft, as well as free agency.

As we jump ahead to July 5th, there are a handful of players that the Islanders might consider for the 2013-2014 roster that may make them a better contending team for next season's playoff run.

Homecoming: Flyers Come Back Home for Five Games Starting With the Panthers

After a road trip that saw the Flyers go 3-3-0, they come home for five games. They look to ride the momentum of 13 goals in two games against the Florida Panthers tonight in Philadelphia.

Three-Or-Less: Theodore Stones Flyers In Shootout 3-2 Loss

The Flyers kept shooting and shooting, but Jose Theodore seemed to have an answer for everything.

Theodore stopped 30 shots, including both of the Flyers' shootout attempts in the Panthers' 3-2 win in Philadelphia. The loss snapped a two-game winning streak for the Flyers, but they have earned a point in each of their last three games.

Theodore came up huge in the last two periods and overtime, stopping the last 19 shots he faced to preserve the come-back win.

Flyers Look to Win Three Straight; Host Florida

The Flyers look to shed their losing ways and earn their third straight win. They host the Panthers, who they romped 7-1 back on January 26 in Sunrise, FL.

Matt Trick: Read Nets First Career Hatty

Only a handful of hats decorated the ice at the BB&T Center in Florida during the third period.

To Matt Read it didn't matter if it was 10 hats or 1,000 hats. His hat trick helped spark the Flyers in their 7-1 rout over the Florida Panthers Saturday.

All it took for Read was three well-timed, well-placed shots for him to net the first hat trick of his career. His offensive outburst couldn't have come at a better time for the Flyers, who had scored only five goals in their first four games of the season.

Flyers Blue Line Shines In Panthers Rout

The best way to get goals is by throwing the puck on net.

That message finally sunk in at the blue line, and the Flyers offense erupted to rout the Florida Panthers, 7-1, Saturday night.

Luke Schenn was arguably the most impressive player on the ice in the win. Schenn scored on a slap shot from the point, registered an assist and added a booming team-high 11 hits.

Flyers Look to Warm Up in Florida

Riding off a huge 2-1 win over the Rangers, the Flyers want to keep rolling as they travel to Florida for the weekend. They start things off with the Panthers tonight at 7:30 PM.

Panthers drop first playoff game to the Devils, 3-2 in regulation

The Florida Panthers may have been a little overexcited to be in the playoffs for the first time in 12 years - 12 years to the day that they last went to the playoffs, in fact. At least, that's what their first-period play looked like, and they had relatively little offensive against the Devils.

New Jersey put up 26 SOG against Jose Theodore - who gave up 3 goals - while the Panthers didn't even break double digits. The first was Patrik Elias at 6:31; the second was a power play goal by Dainius Zubrus at 14:11, and the third was Ryan Carter at 14:56. The Devils pounded Theodore and nailed the Panthers into their own zone for large stretches at a time. The 26 SOG is a ne...

A Frans-tastic Finish

Sunrise, Fl- When the New York Islanders entered last night's contest with the Florida Panthers it was with the knowledge that failing to get a point would mean mathematical elimination from the playoffs. While the chances of seeing a playoff run this season is unfortunately a long shot, a regulation loss would have eliminated all hope. However, Frans Nielsen and the rest of the Islanders team had other plans in mind. (Photo Credit: AP/Newsday)
