Flyers fall short to Lightning; Sign D Colaiacovo

The bad luck continues in Tampa for the the Flyers.

Philadelphia came up just short in its quest to snap a long losing streak at the Tampa Bay Times Forum. The Lightning held off the Flyers in the third to win 4-3, extending their seven-game home winning streak against the Flyers.

Steven Stamkos was as dangerous as he's ever been, scoring two goals and adding an assist. Valtteri Filppula picked up three assists for the Lightning.

Flyers riding win streak into Tampa

The Flyers are winner of three straight and four of the last five. None of this matters, though, with their recent struggles in Tampa.

The Flyers begin a short Florida road trip tonight as they take on one of the east's top offenses in the Lightning. That task won't be any easier as they look to end a six-game (0-5-1) skid in Tampa.

2014-15 Flyers Preview: The New Guys

The Philadelphia Flyers head into the 2014-15 season with virtually the same roster that lost in seven games to the New York Rangers in the Metropolitan Division Semifinals.

With that said, there have been a couple new additions to the Flyers’ proverbial puzzle.

Flyers send Gostisbehere, Laughton to Lehigh Valley; Morin still in Philly

The Philadelphia Flyers need to get the active roster to 23 by the start of the season.

They're at 26.

The Flyers got to that number when they sent center Scott Laughton and defenseman Shayne Gostisbehere to Lehigh Valley on Wednesday. Both, who were top candidates to start the season with the Flyers, will start in Lehigh.

The Flyers also waived veteran Zack Stortini. If he isn't picked up, he will join Laughton and Gostisbehere in Lehigh.

Flyers D Kimmo Timonen Being Treated for Blood Clots

Flyers veteran defenseman Kimmo Timonen is in Finland where he is being treated for blood clots in his right leg and both lungs, according to the Flyers on Tuesday.

This isn't the first time Timonen has experienced blood clots. He had them in the same leg during the 2008 playoffs, not allowing him to compete in the Eastern Conference Final against the Penguins.

Three Phantoms Defensemen Look Good In Rookie Camp

TCL Flyers was on the scene for Flyers developmental camp Thursday morning and afternoon at the Virtua SkateZone in Voorhees, NJ.

Included in the roster of very young and hopeful hockey players were twelve defensemen ranging in ages from 18 up to 21 years old.

With defense being one of the toughest positions in the game to play and a position sometimes with a prolonged timeframe to develop well enough to break into the NHL, most of these players are ways away from representing the Flyers consistently in regular season play. But it is still nice to see how these young guys look in various drills.

Standing out yesterday were 21-year-old Mark Alt, 20-year-old Shayne Gostisbehere, and 21-year-old Matt Konan.
