  1. Keith Jones would like to be the Russian Olympic mascot

    Feb 17, 2014, 3:15 PM EDT


    As you may know, the Winter Olympics are underway in Sochi and will continue for about another week or so. What you may not know is that these Sochi Olympics have mascots and they are terrifying. The most terrifying of those mascots may be this creepy polar bear with disproportioned facial features that Deadspin has…

  2. The Flyers fan’s guide to the Olympic hockey tournament

    Feb 11, 2014, 7:27 PM EDT

    Remember four years ago back in Vancouver when that player who plays on the other side of Pennsylvania and whose name shall not be mentioned drove the stake through America’s hockey heart with an overtime goal to give the Olympic gold medal to our neighbors from the Great White North? While some people out there…

  3. Steve Mason dominates as Flyers hold on for win over Avalanche

    Feb 7, 2014, 10:02 AM EDT


    The Philadelphia Flyers and their fans were feeling pretty good on the heels of a 2-1 California road trip where the Orange and Black nabbed four of a possible six points against some of the best the NHL has to offer in the Anaheim Ducks, Los Angeles Kings and San Jose Sharks. The Flyers kept…

  4. The Flyers will try to beat the Sharks tonight for the first time in over 13 years

    Feb 3, 2014, 5:00 PM EDT


    Take a break from thinking about the punishment we’re getting from the snow gods or the beatdown that was last night’s Super Bowl and try to think back and remember what you were doing on Dec. 21, 2000. Pre-pubescent Greg was probably racing home from school to see what the top videos were on TRL…

  5. Flyers begin California hell trip tonight in Anaheim against NHL-best Ducks

    Jan 30, 2014, 5:43 PM EDT


    When you think of California, what are some of the first few things that come to your head? Sun, sandy beaches, palm trees, celebrities, NWA, earthquakes, cable cars and bridges, just to name a few, right? Not elite-level NHL hockey and hellish road trips. Well, if you’re a fan of the Philadelphia Flyers, those are…

  6. The Flyers have returned to their October ways

    Jan 28, 2014, 4:32 PM EDT

    Steve Mason, Braydon Coburn, Matt Calvert

    Remember last month when the Philadelphia Flyers had won 10 of 13 games overall, a 10-game home winning streak, an impressive 5-1 Western road trip and had played their way back into playoff contention? Good times, right? Well, I hope you remember those good times since they are now ancient history because the Flyers have…

  7. Video: The goal of the year may have been scored last night at the expense of the Flyers

    Jan 23, 2014, 4:23 PM EDT


    It hasn’t been the best week in the highlight reels for the Philadelphia Flyers. Last Thursday, it was Nashville Predators’ goaltender Carter Hutton making the NHL’s potential save of the year at the expense of the Flyers. Last night, it was Carolina Hurricanes forward Nathan Gerbe scoring perhaps the NHL’s goal of the year, once…

  8. Role reversal: Flyer unravel in third and blow late lead in shootout loss to Islanders

    Jan 20, 2014, 9:25 PM EDT


    The theme of the Philadelphia Flyers’ recent play has gone like this: fall behind early, comeback in the third period to win or send into overtime or maybe a shootout for at least a point. Monday afternoon on Long Island, the Flyers’ fortunes were reversed, but not in a good way, and they left Long…

  9. Yes, Steve Downie is deaf in his right ear and halted today’s game due to lost hearing aid

    Jan 20, 2014, 4:20 PM EDT


    During the third period of the Flyers’ Monday afternoon matinee with the Islanders, a scrum ensued in front the teams’ respective benches. Nothing unusual for a hockey game, especially a hockey game between two longtime rival clubs. But what was unusual was the short delay after the whistles finally blew to end the tussle and…

  10. Vinny Lecavalier breaks out of slump with late, game-winning goal as Flyers escape Buffalo with win

    Jan 15, 2014, 10:11 AM EDT

    Jhonas Enroth, Scott Hartnel

    On Tuesday evening, the Philadelphia Flyers traveled to Buffalo with a perfect opportunity to snap out of their mini funk with a matchup against the NHL’s worst team, the Sabres, and erase the memories of their lost weekend. While they didn’t play their best game by any means, the Flyers got a key, late goal…

  11. The Flyers had a pretty terrible weekend

    Jan 13, 2014, 5:10 PM EDT

    Scott Hartnell,  Marc Staal, Anton Stralman

    Heading into this past weekend’s double dose of games, the Philadelphia Flyers had won 10 of their last 13 overall and 10 straight home games in the friendly confines of the Wells Fargo Center. So, naturally, they laid total duds in both games and were left wondering why the bad, undisciplined Flyers from the beginning…

  12. Don’t look now, but the Flyers have gone streaking

    Jan 10, 2014, 4:39 PM EDT


    Today’s Philadelphia Flyers post is brought to you by the number 10. That’s because by virtue of their 3-1 win over the visiting Montreal Canadiens on Wednesday night, the Flyers have won 10 straight home games. It’s the Orange and Black’s longest home winning streak since the 2003-2004 season when they eventually reached the Eastern…

  13. Video: Brayden Schenn suffers nasty gash from skate blade, scores overtime winner for Flyers

    Jan 8, 2014, 9:56 AM EDT


    There have been numerous bright spots for the Philadelphia Flyers on their most recent six-game road trip. But perhaps nothing on the trip has been brighter than the play of Brayden Schenn, who began the trip with a 15-game goalless drought. On Tuesday night, the 22-year-old forward capped off the Flyers’ road trip in style…

  14. Well, at least the Flyers won on Saturday night

    Jan 5, 2014, 9:10 PM EDT


    So there I am on Saturday night out with a friend at some bar I’ve never been to in some suburb I’ve never been to and ordering way too much fried food at about 8 p.m. when I looked up at the random TV without football on and then I remembered… …Holy moly, the Flyers…

  15. You’re not crazy: The Flyers won a second straight game in a shootout

    Dec 31, 2013, 5:03 PM EDT


    The Philadelphia Flyers have won back-to-back games via shootouts. I repeat, the Philadelphia Flyers have won back-to-back games via shootouts. This is not a drill. You can stop rubbing your eyes and pinching yourselves, because it’s as true as can be. The Flyers rallied late to tie thanks to a Brayden Schenn goal with less…

  16. About those Flyers/Capitals 2015 Winter Classic rumors and reports

    Dec 27, 2013, 6:07 PM EDT

    2012 Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic - Practice Sessions

    No matter how good, bad, mediocre or dysfunctional the Philadelphia Flyers may be, they almost always draw the eyes and attention of North American viewers. The latest proof of that is another potential Winter Classic appearance for the Orange and Black. This came up a few days ago – sorry, that whole Christmas thing kind…

  17. Video: Claude Giroux’s goal of the year caps crazy Flyers’ comeback win over Blue Jackets

    Dec 19, 2013, 11:08 PM EDT

    Claude Giroux

    Well, for your sake, I certainly hope you didn’t change the channel or leave the Wells Fargo Center after the second period of Thursday night’s Flyers game. If you did, you’re probably feeling pretty salty right about now because you missed the rest of a game we’re going to be talking about for a while.…

  18. Inside the Flyers’ seven-game home winning streak

    Dec 19, 2013, 4:23 PM EDT

    Image (1) flyerswigs.jpg for post 488807

    Lately, it may seem like the Philadelphia Flyers have been on the road for an eternity.  You’re not crazy if you think that way because the Flyers basically have been on the road for the last month. The Orange and Black have played nine of their last twelve games away from Wells Fargo Center and…

  19. Video: Flyers take down the Caps but may lose Brayden Schenn to injury after vicious hit

    Dec 18, 2013, 12:20 AM EDT


    The Philadelphia Flyers went into Tuesday night’s return match with the Washington Capitals looking to redeem themselves after choking away a three-goal lead to the same Caps team on Sunday. The Flyers did just that and extended their home winning streak to seven games but did so at the possible cost of losing another key…

  20. Flyers look to redeem themselves as they get another crack at the Capitals tonight

    Dec 17, 2013, 4:56 PM EDT


    Following the Eagles’ clunker of a loss in Minnesota this past Sunday, a good portion of you may have flipped over to the Flyers game – which started at 3 PM — to try and get some of those positive Philly sports vibes back into your system. If you did flip over to the Flyers…

  21. Video: Flyers help a returning soldier shock his parents with the coolest return home ever

    Dec 13, 2013, 4:30 PM EDT


    Plenty of things happened during the Flyers’ 2-1 win over the Montreal Canadiens last night in South Philly. Danny Briere came home, Claude Giroux and Michael Raffl both scored in their first game as new linemates, the Flyers bounced back nicely after they were trounced in Chicago the night before and all sorts of shenanigans…

  22. Video: All hell breaks loose after Flyers hang on for 2-1 victory over the Habs

    Dec 13, 2013, 9:00 AM EDT


    The obvious storyline heading into the Flyers’ Thursday evening tilt with the Montreal Canadiens was the return of Danny Briere to Wells Fargo Center for the first time since he was bought out by the Flyers and subsequently signed with the Canadiens this past summer. And while Briere didn’t score despite registering three shots on…

  23. Who are these Flyers? Tonight’s visit to Chicago could go a long way in answering that question

    Dec 11, 2013, 6:27 PM EDT


    Patrick Kane… Michael Leighton’s five hole… Game 6 of the 2010 Stanley Cup Final… Yada, yada, yada. Whatever. That all happened three-and-a-half years ago. Snap back to reality and focus on the here and now because the Philadelphia Flyers finish up their six-game road trip tonight with a visit to Chicago to take on the…

  24. Take a hike, Tom Brady: Eagles’ Week 16 matchup with the Bears flexed to Sunday night

    Dec 11, 2013, 12:41 AM EDT

    DeSean Jackson

    If you are active on twitter, you may already know this since almost every single person in the history of twitter sent a tweet about this earlier this afternoon.  But for those of you who are social media-impaired – much like my father, who still doesn’t get the whole “tweeter” thing – there was some…

  25. Vinny Lecavalier to miss at least 3-4 weeks after “back spasms” turn into a back fracture

    Dec 8, 2013, 9:33 PM EDT


    Courtesy of the Flyers, here comes the rain – no corny snow puns here, folks – to put a bit of a damper on your parade of a Philadelphia sports day. If the 5-1 pasting they took in Dallas on Saturday afternoon wasn’t bad enough, it turns out Vinny Lecavalier is injured much worse than…
