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 ...

It's time for Bob and Bryz to step up

In Part 1 of a two-part series, John Russo discusses what's in store for the Flyers goaltenders the next month and a half.

With a rough December that will see 10 of the Flyers 13 games on the road heading into the Winter Classic, this could be a make-or-break situation for the Flyers this season.

Giroux Leads Flyers Comback; Beat Habs, 3-1

After the first period it appeared as though the Philadelphia Flyers were in for another long night.

That of course was before Claude Giroux took control of the game.

The Philadelphia Flyers fell to the Carolina Hurricanes on Monday, 4-2.

Flyers Penalty Kill on Fire

It’s not surprising to hear that the Philadelphia Flyers take a lot of penalties. What is pleasantly surprising though is that the Flyers penalty kill is quickly becoming one of the league’s best.

Flyers busy during one-game week

With the Flyers playing only one game between last Saturday’s 9-2 route of Columbus and tomorrow’s matinee in Sunnydale, FL against the Panthers, it was a week filled with news rather than actual hockey.

Kimmo Timonen Steps it Up

Last night’s 9-8 loss to Winnipeg was a fiasco. There really aren’t many other ways to put it. It was flat out bizarre. Clearly it was not something we will witness again anytime soon. Despite the craziness that occurred, there are some positives to take out of the game.
