Regardless of Injuries Flyers continue to push Forward

Nothing about Thursday night was unfamiliar to the Philadelphia Flyers.

For a team that has missed a combined total of 132 man-games due to injury/illness this season, taking the ice without a key player in their lineup has become commonplace.

On this night, the Flyers were forced to challenge the Central Division leading Chicago Blackhawks without the aide of the third-highest scorer on their team, Jaromir Jagr.

This too was nothing new.

Flyers Look For First Win Of 2012 Against Surging Blackhawks

Tonight the Philadelphia Flyers (22-11-4) will host the Chicago Blackhawks (24-11-4) for the first time since the team skated around Wells Fargo Center with Lord Stanley's Cup high above their heads.

No one will ever forget the strangeness of the goal that ended game six, as Patrick Kane stormed the Philadelphia net and exploited Michael Leighton’s open five-hole.

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.

Read's three-point night propels Flyers

Matt Read's three-point night is all the support Ilya Bryzgalov needed in his return to Phoenix.

The Flyers scored four goals in the first period en route to a 4-2 win over the Coyotes, Saturday night.

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 ...
