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

    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…

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

    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…

  3. 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…

  4. Flyers-Penguins: This Is Why We Watch

    Mar 7, 2013, 5:52 PM EDT

    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…

  5. 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…

  6. 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…

  7. 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…

  8. 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.…

  9. 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…

  10. 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…

  11. 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…

  12. 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…

  13. 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…

  14. 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…

  15. 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…

  16. Tom Sestitos Storied 21 Games with the Flyers Comes to a Close

    Mar 1, 2013, 2:56 PM EDT

    http://www.the700level.com/images/999209.jpg

    Tom Sestito, seen above in a rare photo where he’s being an actual hockey player, was picked up off waivers by the Vancouver Canucks on Friday. The Flyers had probably hoped he would clear so they could send him back to the Adirondack Phantoms, but this time Sestito was plucked away. Sestito was in the…

  17. Happy 40th Birthday, Eric Lindros

    Feb 28, 2013, 2:15 PM EDT

    http://www.the700level.com/images/998921.jpg

    Ah, to be born on of Feb. 28 or March 1 and not have to fake your birthday like those weird Feb. 29 kids. This guy knows what we’re talking about. Anyway, Happy 40th Birthday, Eric Lindros. The Big E is over the hill. In honor of the occasion, SI’s Extra Mustard crew has put…

  18. Harry Zolnierczyk Hits Someone in Hockey, People Freak Out

    Feb 28, 2013, 1:05 PM EDT

    http://www.the700level.com/images/998899.jpg

    The Flyers took it to the Washington Capitals in just about every possible way on Wednesday night, and they weren’t about to let up just because their opponent did. With less than 30 seconds to go, Harry Zolnierczyk picked up a five-minute kneeing major and game misconduct for a big collision with Mathieu Perreault near…

  19. Milbury on Ovechkin: act like a man

    Feb 28, 2013, 1:51 AM EDT

    http://www.the700level.com/images/998821.jpg

    Has any NHL player’s star fallen farther over the past two years than Alex Ovechkin’s? The Washington Capitals have been as dysfunctional as almost any franchise in the league in recent seasons, while Ovechkin’s numbers have plunged dramatically. Maybe it’s him? NBC Sports’ Mike Milbury took Ovechkin to task during the Rivalry Night broadcast, questioning…

  20. Simon Gagne Lights the Lamp in Philadelphia Return as Flyers Rout Capitals

    Feb 28, 2013, 12:14 AM EDT

    http://www.the700level.com/images/998819.jpg

    Maybe all it took for Simon Gagne to become a point-a-game player again was the right team. We kid of course, but seriously the man has always had impeccable timing. Gagne made his presence felt in his first game back wearing orange and black since 2010, finding twine for the first time in 2013 for…

  21. Simon Gagne Makes It Home in Time for Rivalry Night with the Washington Capitals

    Feb 27, 2013, 4:25 PM EDT

    http://www.the700level.com/images/998703.jpg

    While Philly fans had to be happy on some level when they heard Simon Gagne was coming home, the move did raise a few questions – not to mention eyebrows. The Flyers are fighting for their playoff lives, and general manager Paul Holmgren’s cure was to trade for a 33 year old who hasn’t played…

  22. Flyers Reacquire Simon Gagne

    Feb 26, 2013, 4:11 PM EDT

    http://www.the700level.com/images/998481.jpg

    The Flyers announced they have sent a conditional fourth-round pick to the Los Angeles Kings in exchange for Simon Gagne on Tuesday. Gagne was Philadelphia’s first-round pick in 1998, spending 10 seasons in Orange & Black until he was traded to Tampa Bay in 2010. Reports state the pick becomes a third rounder if the…

  23. Photos: Ilya Bryzgalovs New Star Wars-Themed Mask

    Feb 26, 2013, 1:39 PM EDT

    http://www.the700level.com/images/990533.jpg

    The Flyers tweeted out photos of Ilya Bryzgalov’s new mask, which features Yoda on one side, Darth Vader on the other. Too bad he didn’t have the force on his side Monday night. R2-D2 also makes a cameo, along with some starships. [RELATED: Ask Apple's Siri about the universe, get Bryz] I’m not the biggest…

  24. Apple’s Siri Knows Ilya Bryzgalov Is the Universe, But Doesn’t Know Squat About Ice Cream

    Feb 26, 2013, 1:13 PM EDT

    http://www.the700level.com/images/998457.jpg

    Apple’s Siri has been known to get a bit sassy at times. Sometimes she doesn’t feel bad about helping you dispose of a dead body. Other times she’ll tell you that Ilya Bryzgalov is the universe. And also Mr. Universe. He’s 32 years old. If you don’t get it, here’s a little back story on…

  25. Zac Rinaldo Welcomes James van Riemsdyk Back to Philadelphia, but Toronto Escapes Town with Win

    Feb 26, 2013, 3:18 AM EDT

    http://www.the700level.com/images/998343.jpg

    The Flyers continued spinning their wheels on Monday night, failing again to restore their record to .500 in a 4-2 loss to the Toronto Maple Leafs. There was an erratic pace to the action, with both sides enduring lengthy droughts in their offensive end, and the Bullies simply suffered one breakdown too many. But if…
