    @Buccigross Here’s @s_ghost14 during warm ups for his @phantomshockey professional debut! pic.twitter.com/h7FvHd4zLb — Kelli Griesemer (@hockeychick2027) April 18, 2014 In case you missed it (or were busy wallowing in the Flyers playoff defeat to to the New York Rangers), organizational godsend defensive prospect, Shayne Gostisbehere, made his professional debut with the Adirondack Phantoms on Friday.…

  2. Steve Mason is alive and on the ice in New York

    Apr 18, 2014, 1:56 PM EDT

    instasteve-mason

    Goaltending wasn’t really the issue Thursday night. Stupid penalties, stupid rules (based on bleeding) and all-around sloppy play were far more to blame than anything Ray Emery did or didn’t do in his crease. But here we are on Friday and Steve Mason is back on the ice. Mason, who was injured in a collision…

  3. 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…

  4. 3 Stars: Sloppy Flyers completely unravel in third period and drop Game 1 to Rangers

    Apr 18, 2014, 12:11 AM EDT

    Carl Hagelin, Jason Akeson

    A look at the Philadelphia Flyers’ 4-1 loss to the New York Rangers in Game 1 of the teams’ Eastern Conference first-round series on Thursday night at Madison Square Garden through the perspective of two players and one almost invisible unit. Ugh. That was not fun. Luckily, it was just the first game of the…

  5. Getting to know the enemy: Four under-the-radar Rangers the Flyers have to keep in check

    Apr 17, 2014, 5:01 PM EDT

    martin.st.louis

    Leading into Game 1 tonight between the Philadelphia Flyers and New York Rangers at Madison Square Garden, here’s a look at four under-the-radar Rangers – ok, well, three players and one inanimate object – that the Flyers will have to keep in check in order to ensure success in the series. You won’t see star…

  6. 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…

  7. Wayne Simmonds on Hartsy and Voracek playoff beard dye jobs: ‘Gingers should stick to being gingers’

    Apr 17, 2014, 1:47 PM EDT

    Hartnell.beard

    “I couldn’t let [Voracek] do it alone. After dinner last night I went to the drug store and got the Just for Men.” That was Scott Hartnell’s explanation for the dark dye job on his playoff beard this morning. If you missed it, Jake Voracek showed up at practice yesterday with a dyed beard of…

  8. It doesn’t matter what words I put here because Keith Olbermann (@KeithOlbermann) says you can’t read anyway

    Apr 17, 2014, 9:21 AM EDT

    Olbermann

    Again, I’m not sure why I’ve continued typing in this space when Keith Olbermann says Philadelphia Flyers fans are illiterate. A man a plan a canal panama. Have you seen this column written by a dog? It’s pretty good. More insightful than anything on Olbermann’s show. But Flyers fans can’t read it. Blah blah blah…

  9. Interesting theory on Jake Voracek’s new dyed playoff beard

    Apr 16, 2014, 2:48 PM EDT

    artist rendering

    The NHL playoffs are back tomorrow and with them come the annual tradition of attempting to put Gillette and the Dollar Shave Club out of business. Much of the buzz at Flyers practice this morning — aside from Ray Emery being the guy in net tomorrow night — was about Jake Voracek’s beard. He’s had…

  10. Mason out: Ray Emery is your Flyers goaltender to begin the playoffs

    Steve Mason will NOT play tomorrow. — Sarah Baicker (@sbaickerCSN) April 16, 2014 Ray Emery on starting Game 1 against the Rangers: “I’m excited about it. I feel like I can do well.” #FlyersTalk — Sarah Baicker (@sbaickerCSN) April 16, 2014 Steve Mason was not at the Flyers practice facility this morning over in New…

  11. 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,…

  12. Defenseman Signing Day: Flyers ink MacDonald to big-money extension, Gostisbehere to entry-level deal

    Apr 15, 2014, 3:38 PM EDT

    gostisbehere

    Sure, the Stanley Cup Playoffs start for the Philadelphia Flyers in two days and all, but there was some pretty interesting news out of Flyerland today that had nothing to do with the upcoming series with the New York Rangers. The news actually involved contracts for defensemen that have generated a ton of chatter lately.…

  13. Miley Cyrus forced to switch Philly show dates as Flyers-Rangers take priority over Bangerz Tour

    Apr 14, 2014, 4:44 PM EDT

    Miley Cyrus

    Since it was the last weekend of the regular season and playoff positioning still needed to be determined, this past weekend figured to be a pretty busy one for the Philadelphia Flyers. It turned out to be all that and then some. First, there was the 4-3 overtime win over the Penguins this past Saturday…

  14. 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…

  15. 3 Stars: Flyers blow chance for home ice in first round with loss at Lightning

    Apr 11, 2014, 10:29 AM EDT

    flyers.tampa

    A look at the Philadelphia Flyers’ 4-2 loss to the Tampa Bay Lightning on Thursday night at Tampa Bay Times Forum in Tampa, Fla. from the perspective of two players and one unit that struggled mightily in the third period.   That third period sure was ugly on Thursday night. For even more of a…

  16. The Evster and Enrico head over to the Frozen Four

    Apr 11, 2014, 8:22 AM EDT

    WP_002201

    Late Thursday afternoon, Enrico scored two free tickets to the Frozen Four at the Wells Fargo Center. Knowing I’m a huge hockey fan — and have literally never had plans on a weeknight — he asked me to tag along. The following is a minute by minute report of what took place. Pregame: We are…

  17. Looking at potential Flyers’ playoff opponents

    Apr 9, 2014, 6:03 PM EDT

    giroux.harts

    Go ahead. Take a deep breath and exhale because after a recent, late-season stretch where doubt crept in, the Philadelphia Flyers are heading back to the Stanley Cup Playoffs for the 17th time in the last 19 years after they clinched a spot by virtue of their 5-2 win over the Florida Panthers last night…

  18. 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…

  19. 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…

  20. 3 Stars: Sloppy Flyers shutout by Bobrovsky, Blue Jackets in uninspiring performance

    Apr 4, 2014, 9:50 AM EDT

    hartnell.bob

    A look at the Philadelphia Flyers’ 2-0 loss – their third straight and second straight shutout – to the Columbus Blue Jackets on Thursday night at Wells Fargo Center through the perspective of two players and one suddenly struggling special-teams unit. Unlike the Flyers’ previous two losses when they hung with the NHL’s two best…

  21. Flyers ready for ‘huge’ game against on-their-heels Blue Jackets

    Apr 3, 2014, 5:47 PM EDT

    5-bobrovsky-USA

    They’re all pretty important for the playoff push at this point but they’re especially so when the opponent is just 4 points behind in the standings. The Flyers host the Columbus Blue Jackets this evening at the Wells Fargo Center and there’ll be a rather unique goalie matchup. Former Flyer Sergei Bobrovsky will take on former…

  22. Oddsmakers see Flyers’ chances of Stanley Cup dreams improving dramatically over last month

    Apr 2, 2014, 2:10 PM EDT

    schenn.simmonds

    A month ago the Flyers were a pretty longshot to win the 2014 Stanley Cup with oddsmakers giving them a 33/1 chance of a parade heading down Broad Street this summer. A red hot month of March later, one that included wins over the Penguins, Blackhawks, Blues, Stars, Kings, basically some of the best teams…

  23. 3 Stars: Flyers go toe-to-toe with Western Conference-best Blues but fall again in shootout

    Apr 2, 2014, 11:13 AM EDT

    emery

    A look at the Philadelphia Flyers’ 1-0 shootout loss to the Western Conference-leading St. Louis Blues on Tuesday night at Scottrade Center in St. Louis through the perspective of three players who had an impact on the game.   Much like this past Sunday’s contest with the visiting Boston Bruins, that was one heck of…

  24. 3 Stars: Lecavalier, Flyers storm back late but fall to league-leading Bruins in shootout

    Mar 30, 2014, 7:07 PM EDT

    flyers.lecavalier

    A look at the Philadelphia Flyers’ 4-3 shootout loss to the NHL-leading Boston Bruins on Sunday afternoon at Wells Fargo Center from the perspective of three players who each made a major impact on the game. Despite the outcome, that was an awesome hockey game. It had everything a hockey fan could ever want. Can…

  25. If the Flyers win tonight former boxing champ Riddick Bowe is going to beat some [butts]

    Mar 28, 2014, 2:21 PM EDT

    cooter.beard

    Where to even begin with this? There’s just so much going here. The guys over at Broad Street Hockey had quite the exchange on twitter yesterday with former professional boxing champion Riddick Bowe, who you may remember from such matches as the “Fan Man” fight and his other bouts with Evander Holyfield. They asked Bowe,…
