Flyers Split Squad Ends in Win, Loss

Regular season hockey may be a couple weeks away but the NHL is back and in game form.

The Flyers split their training camp roster in half, sending one group to the Budweiser Gardens in London, Ontario for a game against the Maple Leafs while the other half stayed home to host the Washington Capitals. The games resulted in a win at home and a shootout loss on the road.

2013-14 Flyers Team Awards

Before Sunday's game against the Carolina Hurricanes, the Flyers handed out their annual team awards.

The following is the list of awards and the winners for the 2013-14 season.

Flyers Lose Fourth Straight

The Flyers finally ended their scoring drought that spanned over two games. They couldn't overcome their losing skid though.

The Flyers lost their fourth straight game on Saturday, a 5-2 loss at the hands of the Bruins, who started the Flyers losing streak last weekend.

It was a score that didn't represent the type of game starting goalie Ray Emery had. Emery made 37 saves on 41 shots as the Flyers were out-shot 42-26.

Flyers Extend Raffl to Two-Year Deal

The Flyers announced after their 4-1 victory over the St. Louis Blues that they've extended left winger Michael Raffl.

Raffl's extension is for two years, worth $2.2 million for two years, locking him up through the 2015-16 season.

Flyers Extend Winning Streak to Four; Beat Dallas

Wayne Simmonds is making the trade from three years ago pay in full.

Simmonds scored two more goals, his second proving to be the decider in a 4-2 win over the Dallas Stars on Thursday. The goals were his 22nd and 23rd of the season, putting him second to Claude Giroux for the team lead in goals and points.

It was the fourth straight win for the Flyers, who are now 11-2-1 since Feb. 1.

Flyers Acquire Andrew MacDonald From Islanders

The Philadelphia Flyers have made their first move of the trade deadline.

The Flyers acquired Andrew MacDonald from the New York Islanders for a pair of draft picks and an AHL player. The picks are a 2014 third round pick and a 2015 second-rounder to go with minor leaguer Matt Mangene.

Recapping the Flyers At the 2014 Olympic Games in Socchi

The 2014 Winter Olympics have concluded and all attention now turns back to the NHL and towards the Philadelphia Flyers returning to action on Thursday night against the San Jose Sharks.

While most of the Flyers enjoyed a few weeks off, five Flyers spent the Olympic break representing their respective countries in Sochi, Russia. Those five players were Kimmo Timonen (Finland), Jakub Voracek (Czech Republic), Michael Raffl (Austria), Mark Streit (Switzerland) and Andrej Meszaros (Slovakia).

For the most part, the success of those players went with the success of their teams.

TCL Flyers Olympic Picks

The Flyers and the rest of the NHL are off for the next two weeks. But for 12 countries and 151 players, a new season begins.

Beginning at noon today, the men's tournament at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia begin with Latvia taking on the Switzerland and Sweden playing Czech Republic.

Flyers Back In Playoffs With Third Straight Win

The Flyers have the opportunity to head into the Olympic break with a four game winning streak and a spot in the playoffs to lose.

The Flyers won their third straight game on Thursday, beating the Colorado Avalanche 3-1. The rode another stellar performance by Steve Mason, who has allowed three goals in his three starts during the current winning streak.

Mason stopped 38 shots against Colorado to seal the win. His only hiccup came late in the third period when Nathan MacKinnon sneaked a shot between Mason and the left goal post that cut the Flyers lead at the time to 2-1.

Flyers Come Back, Beat Sharks

It took a "step-in-the-right direction" second period leading to three third period goals, but all ended well in the final leg of a California road trip as the Phialdelphia Flyers defeated the San Jose Sharks 5-2 in comeback fashion.

Four third period goals scored by Matt Read, Michael Raffl, Claude Giroux and Jakub Voracek led yet another third period comeback on the road. That mindset broke through on the Flyers' last extended western road trip, and it continued with this trip as well.
