Flyers Look to Warm Up in Florida

Riding off a huge 2-1 win over the Rangers, the Flyers want to keep rolling as they travel to Florida for the weekend. They start things off with the Panthers tonight at 7:30 PM.

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.

Scott Hartnell's Injury the Latest Bit of Bad Luck for the Flyers

Forwards are dropping like flies for the Flyers, and Scott Hartnell could be next on the list.

The Flyers left winger was injured late in Tuesday's 3-0 loss to the devils. With 6:53 remaining in the game, Kimmo Timonen fired a slap shot that hit Hartnell in the left foot, hobbling him.

Giroux Fails to Lead By Example In Loss

The Flyers have gone into full disappearing mode, and the epidemic has spread to the team's leader.

Before the season started, Claude Giroux was slated to be ready to lead the Flyers, getting endorsements from half the veterans on the team. But in the third game of a young but short season, the captain was completely absent from the game, leaving people wondering what happened to Giroux.

In the Flyers 3-0 loss to New Jersey on Tuesday, Giroux's poor play rubbed off on the rest of the team, including two of the Flyers' young, budding forwards Brayden Schenn and Sean Couturier.

Flyers, Penguins Kick Off the Season in Philly

The NHL is back, and there is no better way to celebrate the return of hockey in Pennsylvania than to have its two bitter rivals battle in the City of Brotherly Love.

Sean Couturier Has 'Always Been Defense First,' Doesn't Plan To Change

By the end of his rookie campaign, the 19-year-old was utilized as the Flyers top shut-down forward and was given the weighty responsibility of facing the opponent’s top scoring competition. The most notable instance of this came in the first round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs when Evgeni Malkin of the Pittsburgh Penguins was virtually non-existent thanks to Couturier.

Flyers Vs. Devils, Eastern Conference Semifinals: Couturier Out; Meszaros Possibly In For Game 4
