Secondary Scoring Supports Flyers

With so much emphasis placed on the production of the first line, it often gets lost at how talented the Flyers subsequent lines are. Although the first line will most likely continue to be the team’s most productive line, it doesn’t mean that the other lines won’t sprinkle in production when need to be.

Bobrovsky Shelters Goaltender Storm

After Ilya Bryzgalov failed to earn back the confidence of his coach, it was Bobrovsky who got the call Tuesday night in the team’s final game of the season against the Carolina Hurricanes.

It turned out to be the right decision.

Powered By The Youngsters, Flyers Defeat Hurricanes 2-1

The Flyers were able to present coach Peter Laviolette his 100th victory with the team on Tuesday night, powered by the stellar play of their rookies and goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky.

The team held off the Carolina Hurricanes in a 2-1 win, effectively winning the season series three games to one.

Bobrovsky continued his strong play and came up huge in this one, making 33 saves on 34 shots and bailing his team out of some dangerous situations when there were defensive breakdowns around the net.

Bobrovsky flourished late in the third period, when the Hurricanes had numerous chances to tie it up thanks to a struggling Flyers’ defense.

Jagr, Flyers erase early deficit to beat Penguins

Though Pittsburgh fans treat every Flyer with a nice chorus of boos, none received a worse ovation than Jaromir Jagr did in Thursday night's 4-2 win against the Penguins.

And if he didn't have many friends to begin with in the Steel City, he made sure to leave with fewer. It was Jagr's second period goal - and a salute to cap it off - that gave the Flyers their lead.

With the score knotted at one-apiece, Jagr found the back of the net for the 12th time this season, giving the Flyers a 2-1 lead with under 14 minutes left in the second.

But the star of the night for the Flyers was in net. Sergei Bobrovsky improved to 4-0 in his career in Pittsburgh, making one huge save after another.

Flyers Look For Spark Against Lightning

After a short holiday break, the Philadelphia Flyers (21-9-4) will continue on their current five game road trip in Florida when they take on the Tampa Bay Lightning (14-17-3).

Despite losing their last road game to the New York Rangers, the Flyers are still sporting the league's best road record (13-4-2).

The Flyers are now 2-2-1 in their last five and surrendered 17 goals. But that last five games' woes go beyond the score board.

24/7 Part II; Deeper Down the Rabbit Hole

Last week’s episode of “24/7” acted as an introduction to both teams. Feeling out the different personality types and developing main characters, the show offered more information than insight.

The second installment of the four-part series gave viewers all the behind-the-scenes action they could have hoped for, offering unique circumstances that many have never seen.

Flyers Aim To Extend Road Win Streak To Six

After losing for the first time in the month of December, the injury-depleted Philadelphia Flyers (20-8-3) will kick-off a five game road trip tonight in Denver when they face the Colorado Avalanche (15-17-1) in their only meeting of the season.

The Flyers had their seven game unbeaten streak come to a screeching halt Saturday afternoon (6-0) by the defending Stanley Cup Champion Boston Bruins.

Tonight they will try to stay unbeaten on the road in December, and will do so with yet another new young player in the line-up.

Injury Update on Sean Couturier

When it rains in Philadelphia, it pours.

At least that’s the way the 2011-12 season has seemed for Philadelphia Flyers fans.

Coming into Saturday afternoon’s matinee match-up against the Boston Bruins, the Flyers had already lost a combined total of 100 man-games due to injury or illness.

Following an embarrassing 6-0 loss to the Bruins, it appears as though the number will only continue to grow in the coming weeks.

Rookie forward, Sean Couturier was struck in the side of the head with a shot from the point during one of the Flyers power play opportunities at the end of the first period.

A Look At The 'New Guys': Columbus Gets Carter, The Flyers Get...

Gord Miller is probably not wrong in his assessment that HBO could probably have made a special about this game.  Unfortunately for the Canadiens, they would not be the heroes in this one.

After a topsy-turvy matchup that saw the game tied three times, the Flyers finally came out of the Bell Centre with a 4-3 win in hand while the Habs saw more of referee Chris Lee than the back of the Flyers' net.

Philadelphia got on the board first as everyone's eyes were on Jakub Voracek's dazzling dashes into the offensive zone, leaving none on Max Talbot, who potted the game's first ...
