  1. Ryan Howard suddenly off to one of best starts of his career at the plate

    Apr 22, 2014, 3:02 PM EDT

    Ryan Howard

    Even back when he was bashing upwards of 40 home runs per season, Ryan Howard was a notoriously slow starter. Now all of a sudden, when everybody is least expecting it, the Philadelphia Phillies three-time All-Star first baseman might be in the midst of the best month of April in his 11-year big-league career. With…

  2. Should Ray Emery or Steve Mason start Game 3 for the Flyers?

    Apr 21, 2014, 8:30 AM EDT

    Steve Mason, Ray Emery

    Did Ray Emery inadvertently start a goaltender controversy with his standout performance in the Philadelphia Flyers’ Game 2 victory over the New York Rangers? It seems he might have. Not long after the final horn sounded on the 4-2 win, the Flyers Postgame Live panel and especially former NHL player and head coach Rick Tocchet…

  3. Snapshots: Flyers draw even in series with Rangers

    Apr 20, 2014, 3:30 PM EDT

    Michael Raffl, Anton Stralman

    The best part about Game 1 of the Philadelphia Flyers’ first-round playoff series with the New York Rangers is it was only one game. The orange and black wiped the slate clean for Game 2, a much more complete all-around effort leading to a 4-2 victory at Madison Square Garden to knot the best-of-seven at…

  4. Jason Akeson doesn’t deserve to be portrayed as goat

    Apr 18, 2014, 9:30 AM EDT

    Carl Hagelin, Jason Akeson

    Jason Akeson on the back page of tomorrow’s Philadelphia Daily News: pic.twitter.com/BBDaKDZgWG — Frank Seravalli (@DNFlyers) April 18, 2014 If the Philadelphia Flyers eventually lose their first-round playoff series with the New York Rangers as they did Game 1, Jason Akeson’s four-minute high-sticking penalty will live in infamy as one of the turning points. Should…

  5. Whoever’s in own goal not Flyers’ gravest concern

    Apr 17, 2014, 3:09 PM EDT

    Lundqvist

    The news that Steve Mason is out for Game 1 of the Philadelphia Flyers’ first-round series versus the New York Rangers hurts. The possibility he could miss even more time with an “upper-body injury” stemming from a controversial collision against the loathsome Pittsburgh Penguins would be a huge blow to say the least. Yet the…

  6. Andrew MacDonald’s contract pays him in the top how many NHL players?

    Apr 15, 2014, 4:38 PM EDT

    Blackhawks Flyers Hockey

    With the ink still drying on the new deal signed on Tuesday, Andrew MacDonald is currently scheduled to be paid as one of the top 100 players in the NHL next season. Let that sink in for a moment. You don’t have to be a hockey salary cap expert to figure out why MacDonald’s six-year,…

  7. Chase Utley Is The Man, Part 1,334

    Apr 14, 2014, 4:46 PM EDT

    Chase Utley

    Todd Zolecki for MLB.com labeled him the “hottest hitter on the planet” on Monday. CSNPhilly.com’s Corey Seidman called this “the best two-week stretch” of the 12th-year veteran’s career. Around here, we usually just refer to him as “The Man.” Philadelphia Phillies second baseman Chase Utley has been tearing the cover off of the ball through…

  8. Philadelphia Flyers-New York Rangers 2014 Stanley Cup Playoff Round 1 Schedule

    Apr 13, 2014, 11:00 PM EDT

    Wayne Simmonds, Daniel Carcillo

    The Philadelphia Flyers’ postseason destiny was sealed over the (gorgeous) weekend. A feisty 4-3 overtime victory over the Pittsburgh Penguins on Saturday meant the orange and black clinched third place in the Metropolitan Division and, as you likely have heard, the right to meet the New York Rangers in the first round of the Stanley…

  9. Movie Review: 5 things that bugged me about Draft Day

    Apr 12, 2014, 1:34 PM EDT

    draft-day-poster

    Most of the reactions I had read beforehand about Draft Day—the new feature film about the NFL draft, a rather mundane event where names are read off of index cards for three straight days—amounted to, “I can’t believe they made this into a movie.” Well, they did, and it’s not bad. Kevin Costner is the…

  10. The NCAA Frozen Four gets underway in Philadelphia

    Apr 10, 2014, 4:38 PM EDT

    NCAA Frozen Four Hockey

    It’s been a good year for college ice hockey in the Keystone State. Penn State kicked off its second NCAA season with a bang by introducing some impressive new facilities, and while the school’s first go-round in the Big Ten was a little rough, the Nittany Lions ended the campaign with wins over Ohio State…

  11. Report: Eagles made trade offer for Miami Dolphins OLB Dion Jordan

    Apr 10, 2014, 3:31 PM EDT

    Dion Jordan

    This time last year, there was rampant speculation as to whether the Philadelphia Eagles would use the fourth overall draft pick on outside linebacker Dion Jordan. The connection was simple: the Birds needed a pass-rusher for their newly installed 3-4 defense, and head coach Chip Kelly knew Jordan better than anyone from their rime together…

  12. Scenes from Opening Day at Citizens Bank Park

    Phillie Panatic

    There’s nothing quite like Opening Day at the ballpark, whether it’s a World Series contender or an 0-162 also-ran. It’s just too bad not everybody can be in attendance to take in the festivities. Thanks to Associated Press photographer Chris Szagola, we’re able to bring you some of the visual effects. There’s nothing quite like…

  13. Flyers looking to clinch essentially-clinched playoff spot in Florida

    Apr 8, 2014, 3:28 PM EDT

    flyers.lecavalier

    If the Philadelphia Flyers pick up two points against the sad-sack Florida Panthers on Tuesday night, the orange and black officially clinch a spot in the Stanley Cup Playoffs. Anything can happen after the puck drops, but not exactly the unlikeliest of scenarios versus the second-worst team in the NHL. Of course, should the Panthers…

  14. Chase’d from home: no Utley (flu) for Phillies home opener

    Apr 8, 2014, 2:28 PM EDT

    Looking, ummm, good there, Chase...

    Ah, the familiar sights of Citizens Bank Park. The Mike Schmidt statue outside the third base gate. The Robin Roberts statue outside the first base gate. The Ryan Howard statue at first base. Chase Utley at second base. Baseball doesn’t get much better than when Utley is playing in the dirt. Unfortunately for fans making…

  15. Replacing DeSean: The other guys, but mostly, a draft pick

    Apr 7, 2014, 3:47 PM EDT

    Arrelious Benn, Chris Houston

    82 receptions, 1,332 yards receiving, nine touchdowns; that’s what the Philadelphia Eagles must replace in the NFL’s No. 2 offense after the release of DeSean Jackson. Where’s it supposed to come from? Not necessarily from any one player. In this four part series, we examine whose roles will increase as a result of the move.…

  16. 3 Stars: Concern mounts as Bruins sweep season series with Flyers

    Apr 5, 2014, 4:54 PM EDT

    Jay Rosehill, Shawn Thornton

    The Philadelphia Flyers’ 5-2 loss to the Boston Bruins at the TD Bank Garden on Saturday from the perspective of three players.   3. Jay Rosehill Jay Rosehill makes what I anticipate could be his only lifetime appearance in our 3 Stars recaps. No. 1, he did a very Rosehill thing, tagging Bruins forward Shawn…

  18. The Ben Revere pick-off play that probably cost the Phillies a win

    Apr 2, 2014, 8:00 AM EDT

    6-5-13-davidson-revere-AP

    Lots of talk about managerial decisions after the Philadelphia Phillies’ 3-2 walk-off loss to the Texas Rangers on Tuesday. Ryne Sandberg left Cody Asche and Domonic Brown out of the lineup altogether in favor of righty vs. lefty matchups. The Phils skipper then proceeded to fail to pinch hit accordingly in opposite scenarios later on,…

  19. DeSean Jackson agrees to deal with Washington

    Apr 2, 2014, 1:27 AM EDT

    DeSean Jackson, LaRon Landry

    Well, this was just about the worst possible turn of events, now wasn’t it? Four days after the Philadelphia Eagles released DeSean Jackson, he winds up back in the NFC East, agreeing to terms with divisional rival Washington. That means we’ll be seeing plenty of Jackson for the foreseeable future—at least two times in 2014,…

  20. Cody Asche, Dom Brown not in lineup for Game 2 at Texas

    Apr 1, 2014, 4:33 PM EDT

    Cody Asche, Domonic Brown, Kevin Frandsen

    All Cody Asche did on Opening Day was get on base in four of five at bats, cross the plate four times and drive in two runs in the Philadelphia Phillies’ 14-10 win over the Texas Rangers. Apparently, all he’ll be doing in the Game 2 of the series is watching from the dugout, at…

  21. Replacing DeSean: I see you, Darren Sproles

    Apr 1, 2014, 3:15 PM EDT

    Darren Sproles

    82 receptions, 1,332 yards receiving, nine touchdowns; that’s what the Philadelphia Eagles must replace in the NFL’s No. 2 offense after the release of DeSean Jackson. Where’s it supposed to come from? Not necessarily from any one player. In this four part series, we examine whose roles will increase as a result of the move.…

  23. Stop defending DeSean Jackson

    Mar 28, 2014, 2:23 PM EDT

    Lions Eagles Football

    It’s times like this where you have to force yourself to step back and look at a situation objectively, not through green-tinted glasses. The Philadelphia Eagles released DeSean Jackson, and it is 100 percent Jackson’s fault. Look, I’m not going to attempt to spin Jackson’s release as the Eagles got better on the football field…

  24. Eagles to players: if you ask for more money, we’ll try to trade you

    Mar 26, 2014, 2:02 PM EDT

    evan mathis

    Is the Philadelphia Eagles’ motivation to trade DeSean Jackson based on his desire to renegotiate his contract after all? Head coach Chip Kelly wouldn’t provide many answers beyond, “we’re always going to do what’s best for the organization,” at the NFL owners meetings on Wednesday. However, maybe there is a clue in the way the…

    Kings Flyers Hockey

    The Philadelphia Flyers’ 3-2 loss to the Los Angeles Kings at the Wells Fargo Center on Monday from the perspective of three players and/or inanimate objects.   3. Ray Emery On one hand, there was at least one goal Emery would like to have back. Then again, if it weren’t for the Flyers’ No. 2…
