Flyers Blow Two-Goal Lead, Lose Winter Classic to Rangers

As Claude Giroux’s beautiful backhanded flip went over the shoulder of Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist, Philadelphia’s Winter Classic seemed like it would be a total success. The Flyers had taken a 2-0 lead on Giroux’s team-high 18th goal in front of their home fans. In Citizens Bank Park, the majority of almost 47,000 people were ecstatic.

With just 5:39 remaining in the second period, the Flyers were in the driver’s seat to victory.

Instead, they let the Rangers sit behind the wheel for the last 35 minutes en route to a 3-2 New York victory.

Mike Rupp scored his second goal of the season just 30 seconds after Giroux’s pretty tally which brought New York within a goal after two periods. A little under three minutes into the third period, Rupp doubled his season goal total and tied the game at 2-2.

Flyers / Rangers: Classic Matchup For First

The Philadelphia Flyers (22-10-4) and the New York Rangers (23-9-4) will meet today at Citizen's Bank Park and take part in the fifth annual Bridgestone Winter Classic.

Although the rivalry between the Flyers and Rangers is a familiar one, the confines in which this game will be played is not. There will be some factors in this game that can not be game planned for, one of which is the wind.

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.

Flyers win seven straight without Pronger, Giroux

Nothing is going to stop this Flyers team it seems.

With their captain and leading scorer on the shelf for an extended period of time, the Flyers persevered another big challenge.

The Canadiens had an answer for the Flyers first three goals. But it was the final tally early in the third period that Montreal couldn't respond to and the Flyers went on to win, 4-3, Thursday night in Montreal.

It was the seventh straight win for the Flyers, who are rolling despite finding out their leader Chris Pronger will miss the rest of the season with severe post-concussion syndrome. They improved to 12-4-1 on the season without their captain, an impressive feat when looking at his impact when on the ice.

Flyers On A Roll; Looking For Lucky 7 in Montreal

The Philadelphia Flyers (19-7-3) survived a huge test Tuesday night in Washington when they trounced the Capitals 5-1, doing so without their most recent injured star, Claude Giroux.

Tonight the Flyers will head to Montreal to face the Canadiens (13-11-7) for the third time this season.

They split their two previous matchups with both teams winning at home and the visiting managing just one goal.

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 ...

It's time for Bob and Bryz to step up

In Part 1 of a two-part series, John Russo discusses what's in store for the Flyers goaltenders the next month and a half.

With a rough December that will see 10 of the Flyers 13 games on the road heading into the Winter Classic, this could be a make-or-break situation for the Flyers this season.

Bad defense, penalties sink Flyers

28 penalty minutes and a bad night by the Chris Pronger/Matt Carle pairing (-3 combined) led to a 6-4 loss in Winnipeg Saturday afternoon.

Turnovers Hurting Bobrovsky

Sergei Bobrovsky hasn’t had the best luck during his time with the Flyers. As if worrying about playing time wasn't stressful enough, now turnovers are starting to torment the young goalie.
