Highlights and summary from the Nashville Predators’ 4-2 win over the Philadelphia Flyers.

Paul Holmgren’s makeover of the Philadelphia Flyers this past off-season is still fresh in our minds midway through the season. The makeup of the team changed somewhat dramatically, catching nearly everyone outside of the club’s front office entirely by surprise. But it wasn’t Homer’s first time hitting the reset button on a Flyers roster — just the first time he did it with a winning team. Two players he targeted when initially rebuilding the club the four years ago were Scott Hartnell and Kimmo Timonen, who visit the first NHL city they called home tonight with the Flyers in Nashville to face the Predators.
Below, a look at the Flyers first transformation under Holmgren, and how the conjoined paths of an unlikely duo survived hockey depravity in Nashville and another roster implosion in Philadelphia.

At a time when fans and media alike are wondering the degree to which James van Riemsdyk is slowed by a possible hip injury, and trade rumors once again encircle the third-year Flyer, he’ll now be sidelined with a concussion.

In the Winter Classic story we wish would go away, an arrest has been made on the Flyers fan side.

It wasn’t pretty up on Long Island, but the Flyers escaped with a 3-2 win in a brilliant performance by Sergei Bobrovsky. Scott Hartnell, Wayne Simmonds, and Sean Couturier each scored, with the third being the definition of a necessary insurance goal. Video highlights, plus a look at the elbow Max Talbot took via Steve Staios.

Sergei Bobrovsky will be rewarded for his stellar play against the Hurricanes with another start tonight. I’m surprised only because when I saw he was facing the ‘Canes, a team that can score, I half thought that Lavy was setting up Ilya Bryzgalov with the easier of the two easy matchups this week.

How are you gonna shaft Harsty like that, Mr. NHL All-Star Game selection people?

The 2011 portion of the Flyers’ 2011-2012 season was to be the great unknown when the team took the ice in October. No one knew exactly how the surprising reshaping of the team would work out, as it’s never so simple as putting good players together and letting them play (ask the Eagles).

A look at Sean Couturier’s most recent pair of goals, which are near-mirror images of each other.

Our Philadelphia Flyers hockey club has been through a gauntlet of challenging teams and scenarios lately, including playing elite competition, a grueling stretch of away games, and the scrutiny of playing in the sport’s most visible game, followed by the top team in the West and a home-and-home with an upstart conference foe. Fans, players, coaches, and owners alike probably wouldn’t have it any other way. While the stretch hasn’t been easy, it’s been a great experience.

Perhaps it was the less than stellar showing in the fan All-Star voting that motivated G to get back on to Twitter, but whatever the reason may be, it’s awesome to have the most entertaining athlete on the ice in Philadelphia on the Internet for 140 characters at a time.

It would have been perfect. The “home” team scores with seconds remaining in regulation — perhaps on a made-for-TV penalty shot — to send the game into overtime. Once in the extra time, the “Philly” team gets one past the opposing goalie, triggering 45,000+ at Citizens Bank Park to go Bonkers.

A look at how once again, scoring depth has been the key to a strong Philadelphia Flyers team. But, another spate of Pittsburgh Penguins injuries begs the question, how deep is any NHL team?

Danny Briere was a busy guy on Saturday. Not only did he score all three Flyers goals to earn his fifth career hat trick, but he even mixed it up in a good fight. Thanks to Briere’s toughness and outstanding all-around effort, the Flyers were able to outlast the Ottawa Senators, picking up their two points in the final seconds of overtime.

Danny Briere dropped the gloves for just the third time in his career on Saturday against Ottawa Senators’ Kyle Turris.

We didn’t rush to write about last night’s finale of HBO’s fantastic series 24/7: Road to the NHL’s Winter Classic mostly because of the outcome of the game. The Flyers lost. It’s never as fun when you lose.
