  1. 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,…

  2. 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…

  3. 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…

  4. 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…

  5. The NCAA Frozen Four gets underway in Philadelphia

    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…

  6. 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…

  7. Scenes from Opening Day at Citizens Bank Park

    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…

  8. 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…

  9. 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…

  10. 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.…

  11. 3 Stars: Concern mounts as Bruins sweep season series with Flyers

    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…

  13. 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,…

  14. 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,…

  15. 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…

  18. 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…

  19. 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…

    Michael Vick

    Michael Vick signed with the New York Jets on Friday, finally severing his ties to the Philadelphia Eagles organization after five seasons of service. While he ultimately came up short as the franchise quarterback, enduring his share ups and downs, benchings and injuries, there is absolutely no denying he authored a great number of memorable…

    The Philadelphia Flyers’ 4-2 victory over the Dallas Stars at the Wells Fargo Center on Thursday from the perspective of three(-ish) players. Steve Mason Yet another solid effort from Mason, stopping 33 of 35 Dallas shots to earn his 29th win of the season. The Philly netminder may not rank among the best as far…

    Mar 19, 2014, 3:20 PM EDT

    desean

    One of the most polarizing athletes in this city, reports of a potential DeSean Jackson trade received a largely negative reaction across the board. Of course, many would be disappointed to see a fan favorite and one of the most productive wide receivers in the NFL shipped out by the Philadelphia Eagles. Even folks who…

  25. Gunn: Eagles want ‘at least a 3rd-round pick’ for DeSean Jackson

    DeSean Jackson trade rumors have been growing in number and force over the past few weeks. As it turns out, where there’s smoke, there’s probably fire. CSN’s Derrick Gunn dropped the most specific report yet about a potential move by the Philadelphia Eagles to deal the All-Pro wide receiver. While the team is not described…
