    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…

    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…

    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,…

    A look at the Philadelphia Flyers’ 3-1 loss to the rival New York Rangers on Wednesday night at Madison Square Garden in New York City through the perspective of crippling turnovers, a group of players that were hardly noticeable and one dominant goaltender.

    carcillo.rinaldo.flyers.rangers

    Don’t touch the Philadelphia Flyers, because they’ve been on fire. It’s no secret around town and, more importantly, around the NHL how well the Flyers have been playing in recent weeks. As a matter of fact, to say they are playing well could be an understatement. Since March 1, the Flyers have posted an impressive…

    stolarz

    We’ll just go right to the lede from Yahoo Canada: Slashing an opponent whose back is turned in the head might play well with hardcore Philadelphia Flyers fans, but for civilized people, probably not as much. Yeah, no. We’ll forget the undeserved swipe at Philly fans slide for a minute and pay our attention to…

    “Worked out pretty well for us,” former Sea Isle City, New Jersey resident Jeff Carter said of the organ-eye-zation changing day that sent him and Mike Richards packing from the orange and black for good.

    With just 12 games left in the regular season and the Flyers steamrolling their competition, making the playoffs has gone from an early-season dream to a formality.

    On Dec. 11, the Philadelphia Flyers were embarrassed by the defending Stanley Cup champion Chicago Blackhawks, 7-2, in the Windy City and in front of a national television audience. This past Tuesday night, the Flyers held those same Blackhawks in check and eventually won an overtime thriller in South Philly when Claude Giroux sniped a…

  18. New Muppets movie uses Penguin mocking, Rowlf’s Flyers fandom as promotional tool

    rawfl

    If it was just Rowlf the Dog telling us he was a Flyers fan, we might have passed on pointing out this promo for the new Muppets movie. But whatever marketing people put this together realized there are penguins on staff over in Muppet Land, and used them in a delightful double entendre. So good…

  19. The Flyers need more of the Steve Mason they got this past weekend against the Penguins

    Why is the sky blue? Did the chicken or the egg come first? What happened to the dinosaurs? Who will solve the Flyers’ goaltending woes of the last two decades or so? The last one of those great historical questions was seemingly answered in the last six months and the answer is Steve Mason. The…

    Wayne Simmonds and Claude Giroux took center stage at the Wells Fargo Center on Sunday like they’ve done countless times before, only this time they were playing on hardwood instead of ice.

    As you may know, the Philadelphia Flyers and Washington Capitals aren’t too fond of each another, especially now that they are division rivals yet again. You may recall their infamous line brawl in November that saw Ray Emery pummel Capitals goalie Braden Holtby during a 7-0 Capitals whitewashing. Well, the unfriendliness boiled over in the…
