  1. Steve Mason will start Game 4 but there was never a goalie controversy anyway

    Apr 24, 2014, 4:36 PM EDT

    Steve Mason

    After what transpired in Game 3 this past Tuesday night, you could see this one coming from a mile away. Philadelphia Flyers head coach Craig Berube confirmed today that Steve Mason will be back between the pipes and start Game 4 against the New York Rangers tomorrow night at Wells Fargo Center. It seems like…

  2. Dan Carcillo gives Flyers fans the metaphorical finger in 4-1 Rangers win

    Apr 22, 2014, 10:44 PM EDT


    One upset Flyers fan gave Dan Carcillo the middle finger and Carbombs didn’t have to say a word. That’s the kind of night it was in South Philadelphia on Tuesday as the Flyers fell behind early and never really found a way to battle back. The Rangers looked like they’d been studying up on Dikembe…

  3. Moving Lecavalier up to second line could pay dividends for Flyers; Mason to backup Emery tonight

    Apr 22, 2014, 5:24 PM EDT

    Andrew MacDonald, Jason Akeson, Brayden Schenn, Vincent Lecavalier

    Despite heading home tonight for Game 3 and tied 1-1 in their first-round playoff series with the New York Rangers, the Philadelphia Flyers’ offense could use a boost. Welcome back to the second line, Vinny Lecavalier. In an effort to create some more offensive punch, Flyers head coach Craig Berube is moving Lecavalier from the…

  4. The time Craig Berube sucker punched Jeremy Roenick: Watch the punch that started it a decade earlier

    Apr 22, 2014, 2:08 PM EDT


    Jeremy Roenick told a pretty wild tale on 94 WIP yesterday about how calculated hockey feuds can be. And just how patient a hockey goon can be in exacting his revenge. The story goes back more than a decade when Roenick was playing for the Flyers and the Chief was hired as a player-coach of…

  5. Playoff hockey returns to the Wells Fargo Center tonight which means bright orange t-shirts too

    Apr 22, 2014, 12:26 PM EDT


    It’s not exactly Peter Laviolette’s “It’s time for some JAM!” shirt or making light of the fact that neither Philadelphia fans nor Sidney Crosby like each other, but the Flyers released the design of their first playoff t-shirt today. It isn’t anything really that will get you fired up for tonight’s game, but Ray Emery…

  6. Ray Emery will go again for Flyers in Game 3 on Tuesday

    Apr 21, 2014, 12:15 PM EDT

    Steve Mason, Ray Emery

    Mason says still not ready. Wont dress for Game 3 — Tim Panaccio (@tpanotchCSN) April 21, 2014 Steve Mason suited up for practice, starting the speculation that he could potentially start in net for the Flyers in game three on Tuesday night in Philadelphia. But he told reporters afterwards that he would not be ready…

  7. 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…

  8. 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…

  9. Ghost Report: Murray Impressed by Gostisbehere’s Adirondack Debut

    Apr 19, 2014, 12:19 PM EDT


    @Buccigross Here’s @s_ghost14 during warm ups for his @phantomshockey professional debut! — 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.…

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

    Apr 18, 2014, 1:56 PM EDT


    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…

  11. 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: — 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…

  12. 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…

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

    Apr 17, 2014, 5:01 PM EDT

    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…

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

    Apr 17, 2014, 3:09 PM EDT


    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…

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

    Apr 17, 2014, 1:47 PM EDT


    “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…

  16. 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


    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…

  17. 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…

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

    Apr 16, 2014, 11:58 AM EDT


    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…

  19. 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,…

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

    Apr 15, 2014, 3:38 PM EDT


    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.…

  21. 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…

  22. 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…

  23. 3 Stars: Flyers blow chance for home ice in first round with loss at Lightning

    Apr 11, 2014, 10:29 AM EDT


    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…

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

    Apr 11, 2014, 8:22 AM EDT


    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…

  25. Looking at potential Flyers’ playoff opponents

    Apr 9, 2014, 6:03 PM EDT


    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…
