Don't forget about Max Talbot

Lost in the shuffle of all the excitement that was the Philadelphia Flyers Sunday afternoon showdown against the Boston Bruins was the play of Maxime Talbot.

After the team allowed the Burins to score 50 seconds into the game, it was Talbot who brought them back just moments later.

Not to mention that it wasn’t an isolated incident.

After the team gave up two more goals prior to the end of the first, gained a lead on the back of a Scott Hartnell natural hat trick in the second and then allowed the Bruins to regain the lead in the third, it was Talbot who tied the game once again.

Road Warriors Excited to Come Home

Going back to the offseason, 2011-12 has largely been about turmoil for the Philadelphia Flyers.

Whether it pertains to personnel decisions, injuries or goaltender shuffles, the team consistently has a new issue that is supposed to bring them down.

Even with all the drama, the team has managed to exceed expectations, currently sitting in the fourth seed (27-13-4) of the highly competitive Eastern Conference, only four points out of first place.

With all the other ‘issues’ receiving the majority of attention, there is one occurrence this season that could have become a huge problem.

Since November 9th, the Flyers have played 29 games, 20 of which were on the road.

Power From the Point; Flyers Dominate Wild, 5-1

When the Philadelphia Flyers announced that Chris Pronger was going to be out for the remainder of the season, many questions arose as to how the injury was going to affect the team.

Of course, there was the concern about his contributions in the defensive zone, but one of the most glaring issues that arose was how the team was going to replace his booming shot from the point.

While the team has yet to find any one to fill Pronger’s role in the offensive zone, the team successfully utilized point shots on way to dominating the Minnesota Wild on Tuesday night, 5-1.

Flyers host Senators in Saturday Matinee

New Years Eve is a holiday packed full of tradition. Every year, people all over the world enjoy an evening of celebration prior to counting down the seconds to the beginning of the New Year.

As is tradition (in most places at least), a bottle of champagne is cracked and a song called “Auld Lang Syne” is played.

The song is about old friends who have parted but meet again. The song is sung on New Years so that every one remembers to reunite with one another in the New Year.

For the Philadelphia Flyers, this New Year has been more about separation than reunion.

Jagr, Flyers erase early deficit to beat Penguins

Though Pittsburgh fans treat every Flyer with a nice chorus of boos, none received a worse ovation than Jaromir Jagr did in Thursday night's 4-2 win against the Penguins.

And if he didn't have many friends to begin with in the Steel City, he made sure to leave with fewer. It was Jagr's second period goal - and a salute to cap it off - that gave the Flyers their lead.

With the score knotted at one-apiece, Jagr found the back of the net for the 12th time this season, giving the Flyers a 2-1 lead with under 14 minutes left in the second.

But the star of the night for the Flyers was in net. Sergei Bobrovsky improved to 4-0 in his career in Pittsburgh, making one huge save after another.

Bruins beatdown Flyers in 6-0 Rout

All good things must come to an end.

This was painfully obvious Saturday afternoon when the Philadelphia Flyers suffered their first loss in nearly three weeks at the hands of the reigning Stanley Cup champions, the Boston Bruins.

Prior to meeting Boston, the Flyers had been on a dream-like run, winning seven consecutive games and going 9-1-0 in their last ten.

Saturday proved to be a rude awakening.

Game Day: Philadelphia Flyers @ Phoenix Coyotes

The first matchup featuring the Phoenix Coyotes and departed goaltender Ilya Bryzgalov didn't amount to a result they liked, what with Matt Read scoring the game-winning goal with just 18.6 seconds remaining in the final frame. Now, in their own barn, the Coyotes are looking for proper revenge. Problem is, they may not even get it as Sergei Bobrovsky might get the start in goal for the Flyers as they visit Jobing.com Arena.

The Flyers last faced another former team of Bryzgalov's, Anaheim, less than 24 hours ago. The Ducks got the jump on them with three goals, but the Flyers came back to take the game in overtime, 4-3. Phoenix is coming off a 1-0 loss against Winnipeg ...
