Flyers Lose Late Lead; Drop In Shootout

The Flyers blew a lead late in the third period, only to lose in a shootout, 3-2, to the Jets on Friday.

The loss snapped a three-game winning streak in the process, but the Flyers have earned seven points in the last four games.

Steve Mason was fantastic in net for the Flyers, stopping 36 shots in an effort that didn't deserve a loss. In all 21 of his starts as a Flyer he has yet allow more than three goals.

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.

Mason Shuts Out Senators

The Flyers put together their best all-around effort, shutting out Ottawa and erupting offensively in a 5-0 win Tuesday night.

Steve Mason stopped 24 shuts for his first career shutout as a Flyer. In his 20 starts for the Flyers, Mason has yet to let up more than three goals in a game.

Jakub Voracek and Claude Giroux each had impressive games for the Flyers. Their line, which also consists of Scott Hartnell, was as dominant as expected of a first line.

Giroux Scores In Flyers Win

The Flyers snapped a few streaks in a big 4-2 win over the Oilers Saturday afternoon.

Claude Giroux scored his first goal of the season, snapping a 21-game drought that dated back to last season and the Flyers put up its first four-goal effort of the year. They also snapped a streak that saw the last 13 goals in the Wells Fargo Center scored by their opponents, a game-time span of 175 minutes, 22 seconds.

Manny Malhotra's OT Winner Beats Flyers

In a game filled with little to keep fans interested, Manny Malhotra's overtime winner proved to be the difference in a 2-1 Carolina Hurricanes overtime win on Tuesday night.

Malhotra pounced on a Mark Streit turnover and danced in while fighting off a backchecking Sean Couturier, lifting a backhander past starter Steve Mason for the game winner.

"It can't happen," head coach Craig Berube said of the goal.

Flyers Send McGinn to Adirondack; Activate Hartnell

The Flyers have activated left winger Scott Hartnell, who is set to play against the New York Islanders on Saturday.

To make room for Hartnell on the roster and in the lineup, the Flyers have loaned left winger Tye McGinn back to the Adirondack Phantoms of the AHL. McGinn has a team-high three goals in four games, but his ice time drastically diminished his last two games.

McGinn Emerges as Flyers' Model Forward

Tye McGinn received an 18-game trial period with the Philadelphia Flyers last season.

He wasn't incredibly productive offensively, but he showed glimpses of being a consistent, big-bodied presence on the wing.

Just two games after being called up from Adirondack (AHL), he has scored three goals, including two in Tuesday's 3-2 loss to Vancouver.

Flyers Looking to Solve Forward Depth In All the Wrong Places

When it was determined that Max Talbot would be a top-nine forward heading into the season-opening 3-1 loss to Toronto on October 2 there was an immediate problem with the Flyers.

No disrespect to Talbot, who is one of the hardest working penalty killers in the NHL, but he is not a third line left winger on a team that is desperately searching for a goal-scorer. And with no wiggle room under the salary cap the Flyers are finding out the hard way that no depth at forward is going to hurt them this season.

Flyers Hartnell, Lecavalier to Miss Time

The Flyers' depth at forwards, which was already at question when healthy, just took a major hit.

After leaving the game on Friday, both left winger Scott Hartnell and center Vincent Lecavalier will both miss some time, per general manager Paul Holmgren.

Gameday at Detroit: Battered Flyers Looking for Offense

Scoring is once again a problem for the Flyers, who have managed six goals in the first five games -- they have just one multi-goal game, a 2-1 win against Florida on Tuesday. Riding off of another disappointing 2-1 loss to Phoenix last night, the Flyers will travel to Detroit for the second half of a back-to-back.
