  1. Flyers Set for Two Rounds with the Devils

    Mar 13, 2013, 5:30 PM EDT

    They may currently own a six-game winning streak against the Flyers dating back to last year’s playoffs, but if ever there was a time to catch a home-and-home with the Devils, it’s now. New Jersey has been reeling ever since they last met the Bullies, posting a 3-7-2 record after February 15, and losing tons…

  2. Peter Laviolette Is One of Flyers Few Moving Parts

    What’s wrong with the Flyers this year? Simple enough question, yet one that’s sure to produce a variety of answers. Some might say the front office failed to adequately replace Jaromir Jagr and James van Riemsdyk in the offseason. Too much production was subtracted from this lineup in the offseason. However, the top line has…

  3. Sergei Bobrovsky Is the New Nik Vucevic, And the Hits Just Keep on Coming

    Young guys. Talented or potentially talented. Ruled extraneous with the addition of two high-profile, veteran acquisitions at their positions. Acquisitions that have not gone to plan. The young guys, by the way, are flourishing. By now, we’re all familiar with the tale of Nik Vucevic, whom the Sixers selected 16th overall out of USC in…

  4. Video: Sometimes You Just Have to Love Ilya Bryzgalov

    Mar 11, 2013, 11:15 AM EDT

    It’s tough to tell with Ilya Bryzgalov. Sometimes you think he’s the crazy Russian and other times you think he’s an evil genius. And then every now and then he has a post-game quote where you can’t help but laugh at and love the guy. The later was the case last night. And winning certainly…

  5. Wayne Simmonds Crushes Tyler Ennis, Pulverizes Mike Weber, Becomes Public Enemy Number One in Buffalo

    Mar 11, 2013, 3:29 AM EDT

    http://www.the700level.com/images/1001201.jpg

    Something tells us when the Flyers meet Buffalo for the final time this season on April 13, somebody gonna throw down. The Sabres took exception to a violent hit Wayne Simmonds delivered to Tyler Ennis in the first period of Sunday night’s action, and they never appeared to feel as though the score had been…

  6. Crisis Averted for Flyers This Time (and Temporarily?)

    Mar 11, 2013, 12:07 AM EDT

    http://www.the700level.com/images/1001195.jpg

    Let’s begin on a positive note for a change. The Flyers did what they had to on Sunday night, beating an inferior opponent to halt a three-game skid. They still face a steep climb to get back to respectability, but at least they stopped the bleeding for the time being. On the flip side, the…

  7. Stop the Bleeding: Flyers-Sabres Edition

    Mar 10, 2013, 5:45 PM EDT

    http://www.the700level.com/images/1001143.jpg

    These are troubling times for the newly-minted sole proprietors of last place in the Atlantic Division – yes, even the Islanders are in better shape than the Flyers right now. In fact, no NHL team is coming off of as damaging a week, their three games without points the worst such ongoing streak in the…

  8. In an Effort to Save the Season, the Flyers Have Recalled Michael Leighton

    Mar 9, 2013, 9:23 PM EDT

    http://www.the700level.com/images/1001091.jpg

    “Like Daniel Day-Lewis in Last of the Mohicans, HE WILL FIND US.” — Jon Stewart Following their 3-0 loss to Boston on Saturday, the Flyers recalled Michael Leighton and reassigned Brian Boucher to the far reaches of northern New York. Lord Voldemort started the season as the Flyers’ backup goaltender but was placed on injured…

  9. This Week’s Flyers Matinee: the Boston Bruins

    Mar 9, 2013, 12:11 PM EDT

    http://www.the700level.com/images/1001033.jpg

    Just to put into perspective how deep a hole the Flyers have dug themselves, they have 23 points through 25 games. The Boston Bruins, Saturday’s opponent, has 33 points through 21 tilts. It’s getting serious. If the Flyers have any intention of seeing the postseason this year, the sooner they start heading in the right…

  10. Harry Z. Got Sent Down Which Gives Us an Excuse to Use This Crazy Photo

    Mar 8, 2013, 3:37 PM EDT

    http://www.the700level.com/images/1000857.jpg

    The Flyers could really use Andrej Meszaros’ help on defense — Kimmo’s legs need a breather, man. The move on Friday morning of the team assigning Harry Z. to the Phantoms could be a precurser to Mesz making his return on Saturday in Boston.Sarah Baicker writes: On Friday morning, the Flyers assigned forward Harry Zolnierczyk…

  11. Video: Here’s Erik Gustafsson’s Attempt at Recreating the Wilhelm Scream

    Mar 8, 2013, 2:32 PM EDT

    http://www.the700level.com/images/1000839.jpg

    Your browser does not support iframes. The Flyers lost to the Penguins last night in incredibly awful and ugly fashion. So Erik Gustafsson’s bizarre and goat-like scream while playing the puck behind the net seemingly captured the collective feeling of Flyers fans watching the game all across the Delaware Valley. I mean, we assume it…

  12. Meltdown: Flyers Blow Three-Goal First-Period Lead versus Loathsome Penguins

    Mar 7, 2013, 11:16 PM EDT

    http://www.the700level.com/images/1000691.jpg

    This is the definition of letting one slip away. The Flyers jumped out to a 4-1 first-period lead over the Pittsburgh Penguins in what was arguably the most dominant 20 minutes of hockey they have played all season. Orange sweaters swarmed the road whites, their dominance at both ends of the ice helping to create…

  13. Flyers-Penguins: This Is Why We Watch

    Mar 7, 2013, 5:52 PM EDT

    http://www.the700level.com/images/1000585.jpg

    The simplest way I can think of to put this rivalry in perspective is this: the standings do not matter one bit today. They will again tomorrow, especially should the Flyers falter, but at this moment all anybody really needs to be concerned with is getting geared up for one intense showdown. Flyers versus Penguins…

  14. Appointment Viewing: Flyers-Penguins Tonight

    Mar 7, 2013, 1:21 PM EDT

    http://www.the700level.com/images/1000529.jpg

    The Flyers may be hovering below .500, currently standing on the outside of the playoff picture looking in, but all of that goes out the window tonight. The Pittsburgh Penguins are coming to the Wells Fargo Center to resume what many observers believe has become the best rivalry in the NHL, if not all of…

  15. Chris Pronger Speaks: ‘No Regrets’

    Mar 7, 2013, 1:12 PM EDT

    http://www.the700level.com/images/1000525.jpg

    Nobody knew what to expect when Chris Pronger took the podium this afternoon to address the Philadelphia media for the first time since 2011. To summarize what we saw from him today, I’d say we saw a guy who struggled greatly — both mentally and physically — with coming to the realization his hockey career…

  16. Watch Chris Pronger Live: Let’s Hope He Can Still Make Fun of Panotch

    Mar 7, 2013, 11:41 AM EDT

    http://www.the700level.com/images/892269.jpg

    Your browser does not support iframes. Chris Pronger will speak to the Philadelphia media for the first time since 2011 at noon today and you can watch it live right here. Pronger’s journey since last seeing the ice hasn’t been easy. We all know he won’t be returning to the game he loved, but we’re…

  17. Confusing Quantity with Quality: Ilya Bryzgalov’s First Half

    Mar 6, 2013, 12:27 PM EDT

    http://www.the700level.com/images/1000217.jpg

    On last night’s NBC pregame show, Mike Milbury referred to Ilya Bryzgalov as the Flyers’ “rock.” He did so after being asked a leading question about how well the goaltender had played through 23 games. Bryzgalov’s most recent outing to date had been a 2-1 win over the Senators during which he made 34 saves.…

  18. At Midway Point, Talk of Flyers Demise Premature, but Still Waiting for a Spark

    Mar 6, 2013, 10:40 AM EDT

    http://www.the700level.com/images/1000187.jpg

    The Rangers resumed ownership of the Flyers on Tuesday night, their gritty 4-2 victory launching a brand new winning streak amid a season of reruns. Philadelphia snapping an eight-game losing streak to New York back in January looks like a blip on the radar now, a fluke if you will. Orange & Black is just…

  19. Searching for That Elusive Third Consecutive Win, Flyers Back in Action against Rangers

    Mar 5, 2013, 5:57 PM EDT

    http://www.the700level.com/images/1000013.jpg

    The Flyers have a chance to do something on Tuesday night that they haven’t yet in 2013. No, I don’t mean eclipse .500, although yeah, that too. With a win over the Rangers at Madison Square Garden, the Flyers could finally win their third game in a row for the first time this season. As…

  20. Jeff Carter Is Going to Need Those Free Hats Back

    Mar 5, 2013, 3:30 PM EDT

    http://www.the700level.com/images/999977.jpg

    The conspiracy theory coming out of Los Angeles — the one I just made up while sitting here in Philly — is that the Kings rented 20,000 hats as a fake show of good will and then needed a way to get them back. That is to say: Jeff Carter scored a natural hat trick…

  21. Trial by Fire: Rangers, Penguins, Bruins on Flyers Slate This Week

    Mar 4, 2013, 5:08 PM EDT

    http://www.the700level.com/images/985287.jpg

    The Flyers are more well-rested and arguably as healthy as they’ve been at any point this season – good news ahead of back-to-back games against two of their most bitter rivals, followed by a date with one of the Eastern Conference’s toughest opponents. With their victory over Ottawa on Saturday, the Flyers won consecutive games…

  22. While the NHL Considers Realignment, Let’s Just Fix the Standings

    Mar 4, 2013, 2:33 PM EDT

    http://www.the700level.com/images/999721.jpg

    The Flyers aren’t .500. They’re 11-11-1. Eleven wins and 12 losses do not equal a winning percentage of .500. This is likely why you’ll never find winning percentage calculated in the NHL standings, because unlike in the NFL, MLB and NBA, it doesn’t matter. It’s also probably why the NHL’s game recap didn’t mention that…

  23. The Flyers Repainted Yoda on Ilya Bryzgalov’s Star Wars Themed Mask at Lucasfilm’s Request

    Mar 4, 2013, 12:16 PM EDT

    http://www.the700level.com/images/999687.jpg

    The buzz last week around Ilya Bryzgalov’s new Star Wars themed goalie mask was so huge that it resulted in someone from Lucasfilm Ltd. reaching out to the Flyers to have the color scheme corrected. As a refresher, the Flyers posted images of the new mask featuring the legendary characters of Yoda, Darth Vader, and…

  24. Start Your Saturday Right with a Little Flyers Hockey

    Mar 2, 2013, 11:55 AM EDT

    http://www.the700level.com/images/999407.jpg

    Sometimes you wake up on a Saturday and forget the Flyers are playing in ten minutes. But what better way to start your day than with a little Flyers hockey and some hair of the dog day boozing? The Flyers will look to build off their nice win earlier in the week today as they…
