JvR Returns to Philadelphia as the Flyers Host the Maple Leafs

Former Flyers winger James van Riemsdyk returns to Philadelphia for the first time since being traded this off season for Luke Schenn. He already has a goal against his former team back in Toronto and he is looking for more.

Scott Hartnell's Return Had His Team Pumped Up

Flyers forward Scott Hartnell may not have registered a point but his return was a welcome addition to the lineup.

Hartnell had five shots, a hit, and had two penalties in the Flyers' 5-3 win over the Jets. He played 14:54 of ice time which was sixth on the team in terms of that category.

The Flyers winger didn't shy away from his usual game of crashing the net and wreaking havoc on opposing goaltenders.

Homecoming: Flyers Come Back Home for Five Games Starting With the Panthers

After a road trip that saw the Flyers go 3-3-0, they come home for five games. They look to ride the momentum of 13 goals in two games against the Florida Panthers tonight in Philadelphia.

Vora-Trick: Jakub Voracek's Hat Trick Wins Game for the Flyers

It was Rival Night on NBC, and the Flyers and Penguins delivered.

Jakub Voracek's hat trick goal proved to be the game-winner in a wild 6-5 victory for the Flyers at the CONSOL Energy Center in Pittsburgh. The game featured lead changes and blown leads,

The opening 10 minutes of the first period looked to be damning for the Flyers.

Playing completely flat-footed against a faster team almost spelled their early demise. Pittsburgh scored two quick goals, and possibly a third, jumping out to a 2-0 lead and 12-2 shot advantage.

Flyers Fly Past Islanders In A Record Setting Blowout

Today's game was a record setting affair. It was the worst home shut out loss in team history.

The Isles, wearing their black alternate sweaters, went down to defeat at the hands of the Flyers with a final score of 7-0. However, the game probably wasn't even that close.

Devils Put Out Flyers Early Spark to Win, 5-3

The Flyers got lucky in the first. But they weren't so lucky in the second.

Mishaps in at the beginning of the first two periods set the tone for the Flyers in their 5-3 loss to New Jersey, Friday night.

Just 40 seconds into the game, Ilya Kovalchuk hooked up with Travis Zajac to put the Devils up 1-0. Zajac fired a wrister that snuck underneath the right arm of Ilya Bryzgalov to put the Devils on the board before a whole minute could come off the clock.

Second period flurry buries Flyers

After controlling the level of play through most of the first period, the Flyers were simply outplayed in every way, shape, and form in the second period.

In just the opening 4:10 of the second stanza, the Toronto Maple Leafs scored three unaswered goals on their way to a 5-2 win over the Flyers.

The first goal came on a rebound that bounced off Bryzgalov's pad and right onto enforcer Colton Orr's stick. It was Orr's 12th career goal in over 400 career games and was his first against the Flyers.

Flyers Start Six-Game Road Trip in Toronto

The Flyers, who have earned points in each of their last four games, start a six-game road trip in Toronto. Luke Schenn returns to Toronto to face the team who drafted him.

Flyers Leave Room For Improvement At the Quarter Mark

After what was looking to be a year without hockey, we found ourselves at the quarter-mark of the 2013 NHL season.

It's already been a fun-filled first three weeks of hockey. Perennial giants are struggling, some super stars are still in search of their scoring touch and even the Chicago Blackhawks have managed to play their first 11 games without a regulation loss.

12 games into the 48-game shortened season, the Flyers find themselves with a 5-6-1 record and 11 points, good for third place in the Atlantic Division.

At that point, they sit behind the first place Devils (7-1-3; 17 points) and second place Penguins (8-4-0; 16 points). It could be much worse, especially since the Flyers were at one point 2-6-0 to start the season.

Brayden Schenn Breaks Out With Three-Point Game

It had been a pretty quiet season for Brayden Schenn thus far through the first quarter of the shortened year.

But finally, the younger Schenn brother broke out for his first mult-point game of the year. His goal and two assists lead the Flyers past the Hurricanes in a 4-3 overtime win.
