  1. 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…

  2. 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…

    A look at the Philadelphia Flyers’ 4-3 victory over the hated, intrastate rival Pittsburgh Penguins on Sunday afternoon at CONSOL Energy Center in Pittsburgh from the perspective of three players. Let’s get this out of the way now: Man, did the linesman ever dodge a bullet when Sidney Crosby’s tip-in the waning seconds hit the…

    The Philadelphia Flyers’ 2-1 loss to the New Jersey Devils at the Wells Fargo Center on Tuesday from the perspective of three players, er… people. 3. Tom Kowal That name might not be familiar to many Flyers or even hockey fans. The only reason I know it now is because he might’ve cost the home…

  6. Video proof that Wayne Simmonds can dunk a basketball

    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. The pair suited up to play against the legendary Harlem Globetrotters in South Philadelphia and those in attendance certainly got a show. Prior…

  8. Video: Flyers and Capitals engage in line brawl for second time this season

    flyers-capitals-line-brawl-slideshow

    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…

  9. Flyers essentially swap Andrej Meszaros for Andrew MacDonald at NHL trade deadline

    Mar 5, 2014, 3:57 PM EDT

    meszaros

    You knew there had to be another move on the way after the Philadelphia Flyers traded second- and third-round picks to the New York Islanders for Andrew MacDonald on Tuesday. That would’ve left the club with nine defensemen, three more than suit up for a game. Sure enough, the other shoe dropped on Wednesday. As…

    Hey, it’s trade deadline day and as Kimmo Timonen can relate to, you don’t always know when you’ll have your next opportunity to give Scott Hartnell a hug. So hug now. Hug Hartsy while you can. He’s a good Hartsy and a longtime teammate. No word yet on any deals from the Flyers just yet…

    The NHL trade deadline is tomorrow afternoon. That means you should expect to hear Philadelphia Flyers mentioned pretty frequently over the next 24 hours. Let’s face it, they’re the Flyers and are in on almost every big fish out on the market. Well, the biggest fish on the market this year is Vancouver Canucks center…

  12. Trade Deadline: Moving Meszaros is the smart play for Flyers

    meszaros

    As Wednesday’s trade deadline approaches and the Flyers set to go on their annual drunken shopping spree, there’s one move on the table that they should undoubtedly make. The Flyers should trade Andrej Meszaros. It sounds strange. Trading Meszaros, if possible, was a given at the start of the 2013-14 NHL season. The hobbled and…

  13. Dmitry Orlov suspended 2 games for hit on Brayden Schenn

    orlov-hit

    It was hard to watch Washington Capitals defenseman Dmitry Orlov’s hit from behind on Philadelphia Flyers forward Brayden Schenn on Sunday and surmise it was anything less than dirty. The NHL agreed. CSNPhilly.com’s Sarah Baicker reports the league has slapped Orlov with a two-game ban for the cheap shot. If that seems light, Baicker notes…

    The Philadelphia Flyers’ push for the playoffs begins in earnest on Thursday with the first of 24 remaining games to solidify their postseason positioning. They only have three games left before the March 5 trade deadline though, which means the team must act fast if it intends to add reinforcements. But if Paul Holmgren’s recent…

    Sad update over the weekend in the local sports movie industry. It seems musician and screenwriter/director Rob Zombie is shelving his much anticipated feature-length film based on the Broad Street Bullies in favor of another project. The story on Zombie shifting gears originates from an interview with 3news in New Zealand, where he explains another…

    That sweet revenge that American hockey fans have been yearning for since Vancouver in 2010? Well, it’ll have to wait until 2018 in South Korea because Friday just wasn’t the Americans’ day in Sochi. A second-period tip-in from Jamie Benn proved to be the death knell as Canada smothered the United States into submission, 1-0,…

    Look, this is not the first time that the world has fallen in love with a figure skater. In 1988, it was Katarina Witt and her perfect OH MY GAWD. In 1992, it was Nancy Kerrigan and her really clean hair. In ’98, it was my college girlfriend who could literally jam a whole ice skate inside of her…
