Hawks overwhelmed by Avalanche in return to the United Center

After a dominant win against the Penguins at Soldier Field on Saturday, the Hawks would drop their third game this season to the Colorado Avalanche in a 4-2 home loss at the United Center.  Semyon Varlamov was stellar in net, stopping 36 shots for the Avs, while Corey Crawford would take the loss for the Hawks.

 

Maxime Talbot would get the Avalanche on the board first on Colorado’s 5th shot of the game off of a sneaky redirect near the left faceoff dot.

For Talbot, Role Players Will be Role Players

Sometimes our expectations for certain players are unrealistic.

One season alone cannot be a measuring stick for a guy. Chances are that if we were to pick any player and search for his career stats, there would be at least one season that does not fit in with the rest.

It just happens. It could be due to the team he was on that season, the line he played on, something personal off the ice working as motivation, or any number of things.

For Maxime Talbot, that season was last season with the Flyers.

Knuble Brings Grit, Leadership to Flyers

The Flyers have brought back a familiar face to their organization.

Grizzled veteran Mike Knuble, who turned 40 last July, agreed to a one-year, $750,000 deal with the Flyers. It has been four years since Knuble was last a Flyer, and he will look to continue his long career back in Philadelphia.

Knuble's signing came as a result of losing Scott Hartnell for most of the season. Hartnell broke his foot on Tuesday and will miss 4-8 weeks according to general manager Paul Holmgren.

5-on-3 PK Left Fans, Players In Awe

One of the many highlights from Thursday's thrilling 2-1 victory over the New York Rangers was a penalty kill in the third period.

No, you didn't read that wrong. The Flyers killing of a 5-on-3 power play that included a four-minute double minor for high sticking and a two-minute penalty for hooking turned out to be the ultimate seal of Philadelphia's first victory of the 2013 season.

Flyers Look To Keep Broom In Rangers Closet

As the Philadelphia Flyers (46-24-9) get set to face the New York Rangers (50-22-7) for the last time this regular season, they will do so without the services of Daniel Briere and Nicklas Grossmann.

Briere, who suffered a concussion on January 21st, came back to the team on February 7th and took some time to get back on track.

He proved that recently, notching nine points in his last five games, getting hot just in time for the playoffs, where he tends to dominate.

Flyers Seek Offense And Revenge Against The Devils

Meeting for the second time in three days, the Philadelphia Flyers and New Jersey Devils will close out a home-and-home set when they faceoff tonight at Wells Fargo Center.

In their meeting on Sunday, Martin Brodeur and a tight Devils defensive scheme held the Flyers in check for two thirds of the game until Claude Giroux tied it just sixteen seconds into the third period.

That would last all of 2:30 seconds as Anton Volchenkov scored to give the Devils the lead and they never looked back.

Resilient Flyers Begin Second Half

Fresh off the All-Star break, the Philadelphia Flyers (29-14-5) are set to face the Winnipeg Jets (22-22-6) tonight at the Wells Fargo Center.

After surviving the months of December and January on the road (20 of 29), the Flyers are entering a stretch that will see them play eight of their next ten games at home.

The Flyers cannot afford a slow start to the second half of the season

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.

Despite offensive outburst, Flyers fall 6-5 in shootout

The last time the Philadelphia Flyers hosted the Boston Bruins, they allowed six unanswered goals and saw the reigning Stanley Cup champions end their seven-game winning streak.

On Saturday afternoon, it was a different story.

Although the Flyers lost 6-5 in a shootout, they displayed that they could go toe-to-toe with the league’s best offensive team.

Simmonds Thrives in Flyers Win

Wayne Simmonds came to Philadelphia in the offseason with a fresh start and an expanded role. He looked like he could be the answer to the team’s problems in front of the net. His size and speed was raved about by every coach, fan, and pundit.
