Flyers End 2013 With Dominant Win In Calgary

The Philadelphia Flyers couldn't have ended the 2013 portion of their season any better.

The Flyers defeated the Calgary Flames, 4-1, and head into 2014 winners of four straight and six of their last seven. At 20-16-4, they sit one point behind the Washington Capitals for second place in the Metro with both teams having played 40 games.

Ray Emery got the start for the Flyers, stopping 23 shots for the win. He didn't need to be overly impressive as the Flames didn't provide much pressure, but he came up with key saves late in the game to preserve the lead the Flyers built.

Jackets Rout Flyers in Columbus

Late in the second, Umberger put the Blue Jackets up, 2-0. At that point it was appearing the Flyers were rolling over to Columbus.

Then the same burst of life from Thursday appeared just minutes after Umberger's goal. Wayne Simmonds and Sean Couturier scored 20 second apart to instantly tie the game up, 2-2.

The two teams headed into the third period locked up, but a complete defensive breakdown in the third ended any chance the Flyers had at a win.

Blackhawks Pummel Flyers

The Blackhawks errupted for five goals in the second period en route to a 7-2 beating of the Flyers on Wednesday.

Three former Flyers - Michal Handzus, Patrick Sharp and Kris Versteeg - scored a goal apiece and combined for seven points in the win. Goalie Ray Emery was pulled after allowing six goals.

13 Hawks earn points in dominant victory over Flyers

Philadelphia came to Chicago tonight looking for a game against one of the league’s top teams to use as a measuring stick for their own success.  After an embarrassing 7-2 thumping by the Hawks, they may want to reconsider that statement.  13 Blackhawk players would finish the game with at least a point, and Antti Raanta finished with a .933 SV%, proving yet again that he is a very capable goaltender.  Ray Emery, who started against his former team, would allow six goals on 18 shots.

The game got off to a rough start right away, when Sheldon Brookbank and Wayne Simmonds dropped the glove a...

Blackhawks dominate Stars 6-2; head home to face Flyers

Trips to Dallas aren't quite automatic two points for the Blackhawks yet, but they're certainly playing well in the Stars' home barn.

Tonight's game was about scoring early and often for Chicago, starting with Michael Kostka scoring on his first shot of the game in his first game back after injury.

Patrick Kane would have a breakaway goal ten minutes later to make it 2-0; Brandon Saad would stretch the lead to 3-0 early in the second period.

Patrick Sharp would then score two goals within three minutes in the middle of the second - one on the power play, one even strength - to stretch the lead to 5-0 for the Blackhawks.

Seguin's Nat-Trick Downs Flyers

Tyler Seguin had been under a large microscope after the Bruins traded him to Dallas in the off season.

With that trade looking good for Dallas so far in the 2013-14 season, Seguin added to it. He erupted for a three-goal effort against the Flyers, capping five unanswered to beat Philadelphia, 5-1.

The Flyers were absent the entire game and it showed in the loss. From the opening two minutes they were short a forward, and the five power plays given to Dallas didn't help either.

Wild Shut-Out Punchless Flyers

Ray Emery deserved better than the result showed.

In an effort that was lacking any the Flyers lost one of the worst games of the season, a 2-0 no-show to the Wild on Monday. They managed just 21 shots all game with 11 coming in the third period alone.

Schenn Scores Twice In Flyers Win Over Penguins

Things are starting to look up in Flyers land.

Brayden Schenn scored twice and Ray Emery was a rock in net as the Flyers won their third straight, beating the Penguins, 2-1, Wednesday night. It's their first official winning streak of the season as they improve to 7-10-1.

Things looked shakey for the Flyers in the first period as they were out-shot 16-8. Pittsburgh came out firing in the opening minute of play and seemingly took a 1-0 lead.

A mad dash in front of Emery resulting from a defensive breakdown by Braydon Coburn resulted in a Chris Kunitz goal. The referees immediately turned to Toronto for help, which determined that Kunitz kicked the puck into the net, negating the opening tally.

Gameday at Pittsburgh: Emery Gets Start

The Flyers have won two straight, out-scoring their opponents 9-2 in the process. What is this sorcery you ask? It may very well be the team awaking from its slumber. What better way to test that than against the Penguins tonight on the national stage.

Flyers, Emery Stifle Devils

Just one night after stirring the pot by fighting Washington Capitals goaltender Braden Holtby, Philadelphia Flyers netminder Ray Emery stopped 14 shots as the Flyers rebounded with a hard-fought 1-0 victory over the New Jersey Devils.

Emery may not have faced an abundance of shots, but the Flyers goaltender put forth a strong effort on Saturday evening. Emery fought through some tough traffic in front of the net and was absolutely phenomenal for his 15th career shutout and fourth as a Flyer.

The scoring touch has alluded the Flyers early on this season, and was once again absent tonight. Fortunately, they didn't need too much firepower in this game.
