Knuble Brings Grit, Leadership to Flyers

The Flyers have brought back a familiar face to their organization.

Grizzled veteran Mike Knuble, who turned 40 last July, agreed to a one-year, $750,000 deal with the Flyers. It has been four years since Knuble was last a Flyer, and he will look to continue his long career back in Philadelphia.

Knuble's signing came as a result of losing Scott Hartnell for most of the season. Hartnell broke his foot on Tuesday and will miss 4-8 weeks according to general manager Paul Holmgren.

High-Octane 2nd Leads Flyers Over Rangers

As the seconds ticked away in the third period, the decible level Wells Fargo Center slowly rose to a deafening crescendo.

The sounds of victory filled the Flyers barn for the first time in 2013, and they couldn't have come at a more important time.

For a moment, the Flyers put behind them a trio of injuries and a suspension to earn their first win of the season, a 2-1 final that didn't reflect just how much the Flyers dominated the game.

Meszaros "Felt Good" In Loss to Pittsburgh

Up until yesterday, Andrej Meszaros' participation in the opening weekend was still up in the air.

But as the game progressed, concerns over Meszaros' injured Achilles tendon disappeared.

"[I] felt better than I thought I would feel so that’s a good sign," said Meszaros, following a 3-1 loss to the Penguins Saturday afternoon. "Unfortunately it’s really hard to follow a loss so uh that’s the way it is."

Philadelphia Flyers Sign Scott Hartnell To Six-Year Contract Extension

Today, the Philadelphia Flyers announced the signing of LW Scott Hartnell to a six-year contract extension. The signing comes after Hartnell’s most productive season in the NHL (37 G, 30 A), where he earned himself a spot on the top line as well as a trip to the All-Star Game.

Hartnell has been with the Flyers since the 2007-2008 season, after he was traded - along with Kimmo Timonen - from the Nashville Predators. He signed a six-year, $25.2 million contract with the Flyers almost immediately after coming to Philadelphia, a contract that would have expired at the end of next season.

Schenn Brothers Re-Unite in Philly

A dream come true.

That’s exactly how both Brayden and Luke Schenn feel after Luke was traded from Toronto to Philadelphia on Saturday afternoon for James van Riemsdyk.

Luke, 22, will join his 20-year-old brother Brayden in Philadelphia a year after Brayden was acquired from the Los Angeles Kings in a package deal for Mike Richards.

Flyers Vs. Penguins ECQF Game 5: Another Shot At Elimination As Bryz Hurts

Now that the pressure of a sweep is off of the Philadelphia Flyers shoulders they should enter this game a little more loose mentally.

Their poor play in Game 4 allowed the Pittsburgh Penguins to grab some life and try to chip their way through each minute, period and game to try to carve a path for a comeback.

Is it time for Flyers fans to panic? Not just yet, but there is cause for concern resulting from the performance in the previous game.

Flyers Look To Keep Broom In Rangers Closet

As the Philadelphia Flyers (46-24-9) get set to face the New York Rangers (50-22-7) for the last time this regular season, they will do so without the services of Daniel Briere and Nicklas Grossmann.

Briere, who suffered a concussion on January 21st, came back to the team on February 7th and took some time to get back on track.

He proved that recently, notching nine points in his last five games, getting hot just in time for the playoffs, where he tends to dominate.

Hard hitting, desperation saves and a little bit of extra-curricular activities sprinkled in.

Perhaps, it was a look at what the Eastern Conference Quarterfinals has in store for the Flyers and Penguins. 60 minutes of full throttle hockey with the addition of the playoffs, and the hockey world will be in store for another classic Flyers/Penguins series.

Sunday afternoon's battle - as well as one more game next Saturday afternoon to finish the season - was a preview of the almost inevitable 4/5-seed match up between Pittsburgh and Philadelphia.
