  1. Danny Briere Latest Flyer With Concussion, Out Indefinitely

    Jan 21, 2012, 5:01 PM EDT

    The merciless wrath of the concussion has gripped another Flyer, this time Danny Briere. Could it have come on the de-skater by New Jersey Devil Anton Volchenkov? Or one of several other times he appeared to have taken contact to the head?

  2. Tough Weekend of Matinee Hockey Ahead for Flyers

    Jan 21, 2012, 11:32 AM EDT

    A look at Saturday afternoon’s matchup between the Philadelphia Flyers and New Jersey Devils.

  3. No Cakewalk After the Catwalk: Isles Down Flyers Despite Bob’s Heroics

    Jan 19, 2012, 11:20 PM EDT

    Cross the Flyers’ home winning streak over the Islanders off the ledger, replace it with 0-1-0 on games after fashion shows.* Sergei Bobrovsky gave the Flyers all they could possibly ask for, but at times, he might as well have been on the ice by himself. Evgeni Nabokov and the Islanders defense kept the Flyers off the board until halfway through the third period, then finished them off, 4-1, with an empty netter.

  4. Giroux Fight! G Battles Dylan Reese

    Jan 19, 2012, 9:45 PM EDT

    The Flyers may have lost with few positives outside of the play of their goaltender, but the game also featured something almost as rare as an Islanders win at the Wells Fargo Center. Below, peek the seldom seen Claude Giroux fight video.

  5. Flyer Island: New York’s Other Team in Town Tonight

    Jan 19, 2012, 6:54 PM EDT

    The Flyers’ dominance over the New York Islanders in recent seasons is well documented and increasingly not even worth the key strokes to detail again. The Isle have fallen from their heyday, and the future is not exactly promising either.

    But ‘dominance’ is part of tonight’s storyline, in that it has factored into Peter Laviolette’s decision to start Sergei Bobrovsky over Ilya Bryzgalov despite Bryz having a very good outing against the Wild on Tuesday.

  6. Glazer: Steve Spagnuolo Headed to New Orleans, Not Philly

    Jan 19, 2012, 6:20 PM EDT

    If you were among the Eagles fans still hanging onto hopes that Steve Spagnuolo would be coming back to Philadelphia to take over the defense, it’s time to let go of that dream. Fox Sports’ Jay Glazer is reporting that Spagnuolo has agreed to become the New Orleans Saints defensive coordinator.

  7. Bryz, Flyers Downed in Nashville, Couturier Stays Hot

    Jan 15, 2012, 12:25 AM EDT

    Highlights and summary from the Nashville Predators’ 4-2 win over the Philadelphia Flyers.

  8. Flyers’ Nashville Duo Among Remnants of Homer’s First Overhaul

    Jan 14, 2012, 5:53 PM EDT

    Paul Holmgren’s makeover of the Philadelphia Flyers this past off-season is still fresh in our minds midway through the season. The makeup of the team changed somewhat dramatically, catching nearly everyone outside of the club’s front office entirely by surprise. But it wasn’t Homer’s first time hitting the reset button on a Flyers roster — just the first time he did it with a winning team. Two players he targeted when initially rebuilding the club the four years ago were Scott Hartnell and Kimmo Timonen, who visit the first NHL city they called home tonight with the Flyers in Nashville to face the Predators.

    Below, a look at the Flyers first transformation under Holmgren, and how the conjoined paths of an unlikely duo survived hockey depravity in Nashville and another roster implosion in Philadelphia.

  9. Now JVR Has a Concussion

    Jan 14, 2012, 12:30 PM EDT

    At a time when fans and media alike are wondering the degree to which James van Riemsdyk is slowed by a possible hip injury, and trade rumors once again encircle the third-year Flyer, he’ll now be sidelined with a concussion.

  10. Flyers Fan From Geno’s Fight Arrested

    Jan 13, 2012, 8:38 AM EDT

    In the Winter Classic story we wish would go away, an arrest has been made on the Flyers fan side.

  11. Bob Carries Flyers, Cooter Strikes Again, Talbot Takes a ‘bow

    Jan 13, 2012, 12:54 AM EDT

    It wasn’t pretty up on Long Island, but the Flyers escaped with a 3-2 win in a brilliant performance by Sergei Bobrovsky. Scott Hartnell, Wayne Simmonds, and Sean Couturier each scored, with the third being the definition of a necessary insurance goal. Video highlights, plus a look at the elbow Max Talbot took via Steve Staios.

  12. Second Half Begins as First Half Ends, With Bob in Net

    Jan 12, 2012, 6:53 PM EDT

    Sergei Bobrovsky will be rewarded for his stellar play against the Hurricanes with another start tonight. I’m surprised only because when I saw he was facing the ‘Canes, a team that can score, I half thought that Lavy was setting up Ilya Bryzgalov with the easier of the two easy matchups this week.

  13. Flyers at the Halfway Point: Awards, Surprises, Concerns

    Jan 12, 2012, 12:55 PM EDT

    The 2011 portion of the Flyers’ 2011-2012 season was to be the great unknown when the team took the ice in October. No one knew exactly how the surprising reshaping of the team would work out, as it’s never so simple as putting good players together and letting them play (ask the Eagles).

  14. Video: Give Sean Couturier Three Inches, He’ll Light It Up

    Jan 11, 2012, 2:04 AM EDT

    A look at Sean Couturier’s most recent pair of goals, which are near-mirror images of each other.

  15. Flyers Week Ahead Doesn’t Look So Bad, But

    Jan 10, 2012, 12:47 PM EDT

    Our Philadelphia Flyers hockey club has been through a gauntlet of challenging teams and scenarios lately, including playing elite competition, a grueling stretch of away games, and the scrutiny of playing in the sport’s most visible game, followed by the top team in the West and a home-and-home with an upstart conference foe. Fans, players, coaches, and owners alike probably wouldn’t have it any other way. While the stretch hasn’t been easy, it’s been a great experience.

  16. Flyers Depth on Display, While Penguins Go From Bad to Worse

    Jan 8, 2012, 2:39 PM EDT

    A look at how once again, scoring depth has been the key to a strong Philadelphia Flyers team. But, another spate of Pittsburgh Penguins injuries begs the question, how deep is any NHL team?

  22. Bitter End to Brilliant Classic: Rangers Outlast Flyers

    Jan 2, 2012, 8:48 PM EDT

    Highlights from the 2012 Winter Classic, including video of the performance by The Roots. The 2012 NHL Winter Classic lived up to every bit of hype that has been piled on it over the past year. The teams represented one of the league’s best rivalries, and each side was at the top of the Atlantic Division and the Eastern Conference for the period leading up to and including game. Unfortunately for Flyers fans, although the net result of participation in the event was positive, the finale was disappointing.

    Despite a hard-fought 60 minutes, the Flyers wilted in the third period, and goaltending was—predictably—one of the deciding factors. It’s also a clear difference between the Flyers and the team they trail in the division.

    Below, a look at the best and worst the day had to offer.

  23. The Winter Classic Is Finally Here: Flyers-Rangers at CBP

    Jan 2, 2012, 2:32 PM EDT

    When it comes to regular season games, there is no greater build up to a single outing in all of North American sports than that which leads up to the NHL’s Winter Classic. After all is said and done, it has no more impact on the standings than the next game will, but don’t be fooled into thinking this game doesn’t matter far more.

  24. Bob’s Winter Classic Start: Latest Chapter in Flyers Goalie History, But for the Best

    Jan 2, 2012, 11:23 AM EDT

    A look at the Flyers’ most recent goalie situation to emerge, with some hope that its timing is for the best. Peter Laviolette has to play his goaltending chips wisely, but it’s up to Ilya Bryzgalov and Sergei Bobrovsky to respond.

  25. Wish Granted: The Roots Will Play at the Winter Classic

    Jan 2, 2012, 9:42 AM EDT

    Back in August, we hoped that Philly’s own The Roots would be the Winter Classic musical act. It looks like that wish has been granted, with Dan Gross saying they’ll play, though he’s not yet sure in what capacity. Either way, good news to start Winter Classic day…
