Jackets Rout Flyers in Columbus

Late in the second, Umberger put the Blue Jackets up, 2-0. At that point it was appearing the Flyers were rolling over to Columbus.

Then the same burst of life from Thursday appeared just minutes after Umberger's goal. Wayne Simmonds and Sean Couturier scored 20 second apart to instantly tie the game up, 2-2.

The two teams headed into the third period locked up, but a complete defensive breakdown in the third ended any chance the Flyers had at a win.

Schenn Cleared to Play 48 Hours After Scary Hit

Flyers forward Brayden Schenn will be in tonight's lineup as his team gets set to host the Blue Jackets tonight.

The news comes to a bit of a shock as just 48 hours prior, Schenn was blasted into the boards by Capitals forward Tom Wilson. Wilson got a five-minute major for charging and had a hearing at noon today. (UPDATE: There will not be any supplemental discipline for Wilson.)

Schenn said he is shocked he is able to play tonight so shortly after the dangerous hit he received on Tuesday.

Flyers Hold Off Caps

The Flyers were intent on not blowing a three-goal lead for a second straight time to Washington.

Philadelphia scored four unanswered goals to beat Washington, 5-2, Tuesday night. It evened their record to 15-15-4 on the season, and their second win in the last six games.

“Guys talked about not letting that happen again," Matt Read said. "We just amped ourselves up in the locker room.

"We took it as a 0-0 game and we had to come out and get the first goal and stay on our toes and keep them on their heels. Keep getting pucks deep and playing our game.”

13 Hawks earn points in dominant victory over Flyers

Philadelphia came to Chicago tonight looking for a game against one of the league’s top teams to use as a measuring stick for their own success.  After an embarrassing 7-2 thumping by the Hawks, they may want to reconsider that statement.  13 Blackhawk players would finish the game with at least a point, and Antti Raanta finished with a .933 SV%, proving yet again that he is a very capable goaltender.  Ray Emery, who started against his former team, would allow six goals on 18 shots.

The game got off to a rough start right away, when Sheldon Brookbank and Wayne Simmonds dropped the glove a...

Flyers Drop Chaotic Affair in Ottawa

A zany, topsy-turvy game that featured four regulation lead changes occurred at Canadian Tire Centre on Monday evening. One team knew they would be heartbroken from its result.

It ended up being the Flyers, as the Senators defeated them 5-4 in the shootout.

Jason Spezza's sensational triple deke move in the shootout was not only the Senators' first shootout goal of the season, but the game winner as well.

Seguin's Nat-Trick Downs Flyers

Tyler Seguin had been under a large microscope after the Bruins traded him to Dallas in the off season.

With that trade looking good for Dallas so far in the 2013-14 season, Seguin added to it. He erupted for a three-goal effort against the Flyers, capping five unanswered to beat Philadelphia, 5-1.

The Flyers were absent the entire game and it showed in the loss. From the opening two minutes they were short a forward, and the five power plays given to Dallas didn't help either.

Flyers Revert to Old Ways In Loss to Panthers

A seven-game point streak offers plenty for a hockey team.

It provides hope for the fans, confidence for the players and in Craig Berube’s case, a pat on the back.

The stretch also makes things shinier than they were before. Bright lipstick is applied. When removed like it was in the Philadelphia Flyers’ 3-1 loss at Florida on Monday, it’s clear to see the pig that still remains.

Skid Continue As Isles Fall In Philadelphia

All of the dreams of a positive season surrounding the Islanders have turned into nightmares. The Islanders fell to another division rival Saturday night as the Flyers held off the Isles late push with a 5-2 victory at a sold out Wells Fargo Center.

Early 2nd Period Offense Sparks Flyers

It's safe to say the Flyers are officially hot.

The Flyers won again, this time a convincing 5-2 win over the Islanders. It's their third straight win and sixth in the last seven games in which they earned 13 out of 14 points.

Standing at 10-10-2 comes to a big shock after the team looked loss in its 1-7 record to start the season.

Flyers Continue Winning Ways; Defeat Senators 5-2

The Philadelphia Flyers just keep on rolling.

Behind another strong performance by Steve Mason and an offensive outburst, the Flyers were able to extend their point streak to five games and have now collected 12 of 16 possible points in their last eight games.

In fact, since the disastrous 7-0 loss at the hands of the Washington Capitals on Nov. 1, the Flyers have gone 5-1-2 and now sit just two points back from what would have them in playoff positioning.
