From the fourth line to the first line

This is the big chance Sean Couturier has been waiting for.

Granted the 19-year-old wasn't in favor of it coming at the cost of Claude Giroux's noodle, Couturier is looking forward to shedding Zac Rinaldo and Harry Zolnierczyk as line mates in favor of a future Hall of Famer and one of the best goal-scoring pests in the NHL.

Couturier will see a promotion to the first scoring line with Jaromir Jagr and Scott Hartnell tomorrow night in Washington.

In the second period of the Flyers 5-2 win over Tampa Bay, Giroux suffered a freak head injury. While down, forward Wayne Simmonds tried to avoid Giroux but caught him in the back of the head with his knee.

Flyers win 5-2 with Dominating Second Period Performance

The first period did not look promising. Considering how well the Flyers had been playing in their last four, the first twenty on Saturday made it seem as though the game was geared to be a letdown.

That, of course, was before the Flyers scored three goals in the second on way to defeating the Tampa Bay Lightning, 5-2.

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.

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 ...

Vets Fuel Comeback Win

In their first game on a short west coast swing, the Philadelphia Flyers looked awful. They turned the puck over. They blew defensive coverage in front of their net. Goalie Ilya Bryzgalov looked like he was 'lost in the woods' yet again.

Somehow, some way, the Flyers came back and defeated the Anaheim Ducks 4-3 in overtime.

Flyers Look To Right Ship In Long Island

Tonight the Philadelphia Flyers will look to capitalize on the struggling New York Islanders. They have not scored a goal since their November 17th matchup with the Montreal Canadiens.

Flyers look to Stay the Course against Canes

Coming into their last meeting, the Flyers had lost four of five. Since their last meeting, the team has gone 4-0-2 and looks to be back on course. Although much has changed in that time, not much has changed between the two teams. Matt Brigidi explains.

Line Experiment Produces Chemistry

After adding Scott Hartnell to the Giroux-Jagr line, many wondered if the Flyers other lines would have trouble producing. Three games and 15 goals later, that looks to be a concern of the past.
