Bryzgalov Out-Works Bishop In Goalie Battle; Flyers Win 2-1

Major penalties, desperation saves and a lot of bad blood were thrown into the pot Saturday afternoon.

Those were the ingredients in a violent 60 minutes between the Flyers and Senators. Ilya Bryzgalov won the goalie battle and he helped lead the Flyers to a huge 2-1 win over Ottawa Saturday afternoon to cap the home stand.

And most importantly, the Flyers got to .500 for the first time this season. After six previously failed attempts, their seventh try at evening up their record was successful.

Van Riemsdyk Returns to Philly; Invisible In Leafs Win

The last man on the ice for warm ups was James van Riemsdyk.

Fans were decked in orange and black as well as blue and white no. 21 jerseys all through the Wells Fargo Center before the Flyers 4-2 loss on Monday to Toronto. Decorated with signs, there were a handful of people awaiting the return of the man they call "JvR."

So when the Toronto Maple Leafs left winger finally walked down the visitor's tunnel for the first time and hopped onto the ice, he received some scattered applause from the fans who were ready to acknowledge the returning young star.

Huber-dos: Panthers Rookie Scores Twice in Rout of Flyers

It was the Jonathan Huberdeau Show in Philadelphia Thursday night, and the fans weren't too thrilled to watch him perform.

The Panthers 19-year-old rookie scored a pair goals, chasing Ilya Bryzgalov from the game en route to a 5-2 win for the Panthers. He also added two assists to complete a four-point night.

The opening 10 minutes resembled much of the game last night against Pittsburgh. But this time the Flyers didn't have a quick enough answer for the Panthers and it set the tone for the loss.

On a Team Looking for Consistent Energy, Zac Rinaldo Is Supplying It

It has been very apparent that the Flyers have struggled to get a consistent effort from any of their forwards this season.

Top players like Danny Briere and Claude Giroux have struggled, young players like Tye McGinn have been taken in and out of the lineup, and enforcers like Tom Sestito have made lineup changes even more interesting. It’s tough to think of a player that has provided a consistent effort while performing his specific role.

When you get down to it, Zac Rinaldo may very well be your guy.
