Senators Snap Five-Game Skid; Beat Fading Flyers 3-1

The Ottawa Senators came into Philadelphia desperately needing a win to right the ship in a bad way and they delivered.

The Flyers, still with a glimmer of hope left for a playoff berth, did not deliver and wasted a great game by Ilya Bryzgalov. Dominated for 60 minutes the Flyers lost 3-1 to Ottawa Thursday night.

This was the second time the Flyers couldn't take advantage of a team on a major losing skid in the last three games.

On Saturday, the Flyers enabled the Winnipeg Jets to snap a five-game losing streak by dropping the game, 4-1. Ottawa was on a five-game losing streak heading into tonight.

Flyers Travel to Long Island in Hopes to Get Back On Track

The Flyers are hoping that Saturday's loss didn't derail them from the playoff hunt. Heading to Long Island, the Flyers look to take down the Islanders and get back into the winning ways.

Flyers Continue Playoff Hunt Against Crashing Jets

Riding a four-game winning streak, the Flyers travel to The 'Peg where they take on a struggling Jets team. Winnipeg is losers of five straight, giving the Flyers a good opportunity to take advantage of their struggles and continue their march to the playoffs.

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.

Flyers Get A Surprise Winner Out of Fedotenko

Sometimes, coaches get a little more out of certain players than they hope for in certain situations.

For head coach Peter Laviolette, he wanted to neutralize Washington's top scoring tandem of Alex Ovechkin and Mike Ribeiro. By doing so, he put forechecking specialists Sean Couturier and Ruslan Fedotenko out onto the ice.

Laviolette wound up getting more out of Fedotenko in that situation than he had hoped. Fedotenko got himself in the right position, scoring the game-winning goal to seal a comeback win for the Flyers, stealing an important two points in the process.

Our Savior, Kimmo!: Timonen Sparks Comeback Win on Resurrection Sunday

The Flyers may have turned a corner, finding their comeback identity and pulling off a stunning comeback of the Capitals.

Kimmo Timonen blasted the game-tying goal with nine seconds left in regulation and then set up Ruslan Fedotenko for the game-winner in over time to beat Washington, 5-4. It capped off a one-goal, three-assist night for Timonen, who resurrected his team with two primary assists and a goal in the final 10 minutes of play.

Playing With Hart: Flyers Get A Spark From Hartnell In Loss

Being in the right place at the right time finally paid off for Scott Hartnell this season.

Hartnell made that his living last season when he scored a team-high 37 goals. This year, he has four goals in 17 games, and had only one in the 11 games leading into last night.

Last night, Hartnell scored twice, including the game-tying goal with 30 seconds left in the Flyers 4-3 shoot-out loss to the Islanders. He even dropped the mitts with Colin McDonald, who also had two of New York's goals.

Rangers Leave the Flyers Embarrassed, Without An Answer

Despite having been curt with the Flyers media most of the season, Ilya Bryzgalov is not one to be left speechless.

Last night left him speechless.

The embarrassing 5-2 loss to the Rangers was probably the most telling game of this dismal season in which the Flyers dropped to 13-17-2 and closer to the cellar in the Eastern Conference.

There was no "we must play better," or "we're not getting the bounces." It was a sign of submission by the Flyers, and they did so on a national stage.

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.
