  4. Holmgren downplays possibility of ‘major’ Flyers trade at deadline

    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…

  6. Rob Zombie’s Broad Street Bullies film on hold

    Feb 24, 2014, 2:35 PM EDT

    zombie

    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…

    What’s Simon Gagne up to these days? Hoping, waiting for one more chance to play in the NHL. Frank Seravalli caught up with the former Philadelphia Flyers All Star over the Olympic break for Monday’s edition of the Daily News. Last we heard from Gagne, he was spurned by the orange and black in contract…

  8. Not today, USA: Canada stifles U.S. to crush America’s gold medal dreams in Sochi

    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,…

  9. The Evster analyzes the hottest (and 13th best) figure skater of the Olympics

    Olympics Ice Skating in Sochi02

    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…

  10. Scott Hartnell reading a fake Bernie Parent children’s book is pretty good

    We’ve talked about Scott Hartnell’s children’s book on numerous occasions in the past but did you know former Flyers goalie and brilliant Philly.com contributor / love doctor Bernie Parent also has a children’s book? Well, he doesn’t really, but the folks over at WMMR’s Preston and Steve show thought it’d be a good idea to…

  11. U.S. dominates Czech Republic and Canada survives Latvia to set up Olympic semis clash in Sochi

    Feb 19, 2014, 5:10 PM EDT

    Sochi Olympics Opening Ceremony

    It’s the one Olympic matchup every American hockey fan has wanted for almost four years now and, by virtue of Wednesday’s respective results in Sochi, it’s less than 48 hours away. The United States whitewashed Jake Voracek, Jaromir Jagr and the rest of the Czech Republic, 5-2, and Canada hung on for a 2-1 over…

    As you may know, the Winter Olympics are underway in Sochi and will continue for about another week or so. What you may not know is that these Sochi Olympics have mascots and they are terrifying. The most terrifying of those mascots may be this creepy polar bear with disproportioned facial features that Deadspin has…

    IMG_1007

    Hundreds of people gathered in South Philadelphia on Saturday afternoon to run around in the cold rain and snow and then drink beer afterwards. And they did it all while only wearing their underwear. Seems totally normal, I know. It was all part of the second annual Cupid’s Undie Run which takes place in cities…

  14. Video: Adirondack Phantoms destroy Portland Pirates during line brawl

    I’m not sure what Connor Murphy said or did to provoke this fight, but whatever it was sent three Adirondack Phantoms in a mad dash to jump the Portland Pirates’ defenseman. Next thing you know, a full line brawl breaks out on the ice. Portland may have won the game 2-0, but the Phantoms won…

    Feb 14, 2014, 1:45 PM EDT

    Ed Snider

    The past few years have seen the championship-starved Philadelphia Flyers fanbase grow increasingly critical of chairman Ed Snider over the team’s inability to bring home the Stanley Cup. The orange and black are among the most active franchises in the NHL when it comes to signing free agents and making trades, perhaps to the club’s…

    olympic.hockey

    Remember four years ago back in Vancouver when that player who plays on the other side of Pennsylvania and whose name shall not be mentioned drove the stake through America’s hockey heart with an overtime goal to give the Olympic gold medal to our neighbors from the Great White North? While some people out there…

  18. With Flyers on Olympic hiatus and the Sixers being the Sixers… times are hard

    Feb 10, 2014, 12:57 PM EDT

    Sochi Olympics Opening Ceremony

    Man, no Flyers for 2+ weeks… awful Sixers… and a ho-hum kick-start to Spring Training for the Phils, looks like I’m cleaning out the DVR for a good stretch here. That was a comment on a post about Blake Griffin doing the Sixers dirty late on Sunday evening, but it raises a good point. Sure,…

    Feb 7, 2014, 10:02 AM EDT

    flyers.avs

    The Philadelphia Flyers and their fans were feeling pretty good on the heels of a 2-1 California road trip where the Orange and Black nabbed four of a possible six points against some of the best the NHL has to offer in the Anaheim Ducks, Los Angeles Kings and San Jose Sharks. The Flyers kept…

  21. Claude Giroux is still not going to the Olympics

    Feb 6, 2014, 12:00 PM EDT

    giroux

    Team Canada announced the Olympics replacement for Steven Stamkos this morning and it was not Flyers Captain Claude Giroux. Instead, Steve Yzerman decided to go with right winger Martin St. Louis. That Giroux was left off the team yet again is not overly surprising, though he certainly made a strong case since the initial snub.…

    Take a break from thinking about the punishment we’re getting from the snow gods or the beatdown that was last night’s Super Bowl and try to think back and remember what you were doing on Dec. 21, 2000. Pre-pubescent Greg was probably racing home from school to see what the top videos were on TRL…

  24. 34 Wing Bowl photos that will restore your faith in protein and cellulite

    Jan 31, 2014, 1:21 PM EDT

    IMG_0627

    Thousands of chicken wings were eaten, countless beers consumed — at least two by legendary Phillie Matt Stairs — and hundreds of breasts were exposed to both the chilly weather and brutish banter. That, of course, means the 22nd annual Wing Bowl took place this morning down at the Wells Fargo Center in South Philadelphia.…

    Another Wing Bowl put on by the folks of 94 WIP is in the books. The 22nd annual installment saw a record-shattering performance from new champion Molly Schuyler, a disappointing effort from Eagles lineman Jason Kelce, and a great cameo from Mr. Moon Shot himself, Matt Stairs. CSNPhilly photographer Aaron Talasnik was there to capture some…
