Flyers Come Up Short to Devils

The Flyers, and seemingly everyone else in the Wells Fargo Center, thought they had just completed yet another third period comeback.

With 40.1 seconds left and goaltender Steve Mason sitting on the bench for an extra attacker, it appeared that the Flyers had tied the game at two; however, the goal was immediately waived off by the referee who explained that the goal was disallowed due to contact made by Scott Hartnell with Devils goaltender Martin Brodeur.

After a review, the call stood and amid a chorus of boos, the final 40 seconds ticked off the clock and ended a disappointing game for the Flyers in which they dropped 2-1 to the Devils on Tuesday.

Flyers Rally Over the Weekend; Get Back On Track

The Philadelphia Flyers had a rough night on Thursday.

Following a 7-3 drubbing to the San Jose Sharks, the mood in the locker room was filled with disappointment and confusion. Both Claude Giroux and Scott Hartnell said after the game that they don't know where it went wrong, but they needed to get back to playing their style of hockey.

Or as Hartnell worded it, "Flyers hockey."

Flyers Bowled Over by Sharks

Over the past several seasons, the Philadelphia Flyers possessed an ability to come back to win games after subpar second period efforts. On Thursday night, after five unaswered goals by the San Jose Sharks, any hope of that happening again was extinguished rather quickly.

A hat trick from American Olympian Joe Pavelski, two goals from Canadian candidate Logan Couture and two goals from Raffi Torres in his season debut crushed the Flyers in a punishing 7-3 rout at the Wells Fargo Center.

Flyers Back In Playoffs With Third Straight Win

The Flyers have the opportunity to head into the Olympic break with a four game winning streak and a spot in the playoffs to lose.

The Flyers won their third straight game on Thursday, beating the Colorado Avalanche 3-1. The rode another stellar performance by Steve Mason, who has allowed three goals in his three starts during the current winning streak.

Mason stopped 38 shots against Colorado to seal the win. His only hiccup came late in the third period when Nathan MacKinnon sneaked a shot between Mason and the left goal post that cut the Flyers lead at the time to 2-1.

Flyers Silence Kings After Rough Game In Anaheim

The Flyers have just two wins in their last seven games. Both of those wins are shutouts.

The Flyers blanked the Kings, 2-0, just days after getting scorched for five goals against the Ducks. Earlier in the week, they snapped a four-game losing streak with a 5-0 drubbing of the Red Wings.

The game looked to be a low-scoring affair early as the teams tallied just 12 shots in a scoreless first.

Wayne Simmonds scored his 100th career goal in the win. It was also his first trip back at the Staples Center since 2011 when he was traded to Philadelphia, making the goal even more special.

Flyers Blank Red Wings

Good breaks favor the victors. The Philadelphia Flyers capitalized twice in the second period leading to a 5-0 shutout win over the Detroit Red Wings on Tuesday night, snapping a four-game losing streak.

Scott Hartnell added two goals while dealing with a sore foot to lead the way. Claude Giroux, Sean Couturier and Adam Hall also scored for the Flyers.

Flyers Embarrassed At Home By Bruins

Steve Mason's new goalie mask is a perfect representation of the Flyers.

His new mask has images of some of his teammates in zombie form. And much like his mask depicts, the Flyers resemble the walking dead.

The Flyers turned in another mediocre performance, losing 6-1 in embarrassing fashion to the Bruins at home. The loss expanded the Flyers losing streak to four games as well as losses in seven of their last nine games.

Flyers Lack Effort In Loss to Jackets

If in Wednesday's loss to Carolina the Flyers showed times of no effort, it was in Thursday's loss that they showed 60 minutes of no effort.

The Flyers lost 5-2 to Columbus in a game they never got out of the starting gate. Ray Emery allowed five goals and played the entire game to keep Steve Mason rested.

Tlusty's Third Period Goal Sends Hurricanes Past Flyers

Another slow start for the Flyers bit them in an unwelcoming place Wednesday night.

A shot from the point landed on the stick of Jiri Tlusty, and he put it past Steve Mason to give the Hurricanes the 3-2 lead and eventual win over the Flyers on Wednesday. It was the third time in as many games the Flyers dropped to the Hurricanes.

The game was a makeup from Tuesday, which was postponed due to the foot of snow Philadelphia got.
