The past two Flyers games have seen some nastiness and play outside of the rules, which has resulted in one suspension so far with Ville Leino getting a one-game break from the league for his elbow on Matt Read. News of that suspension came during the Flyers-Penguins game last night, when Evgeni Malkin likely narrowly missed being issued a similar fate as a result of missing the head of Claude Giroux on an attempt away from the play.

Fans were calling for some sort of justice, either on-ice or from the league, after former Flyer and current Buffalo Sabre Ville Leino threw an elbow at the head of current Flyers rookie Matt Read in Wednesday night’s game [Video]. The former may not have come to fruition, but the latter did on Thursday night, when dean of discipline Brendan Shanahan issued a one-game suspension to Leino. Here’s his video explaining why.

It’s not just the best hashtag in the Flyers twitterverse, it’s also an effective offensive strategy. Scott Hartnell’s long been known for easily losing his balance, both on purpose and at times not as intentionally. He’s a magnet for the net and often the opposing goalie, and the player and some of his social media-savvy teammates have been embracing the #hartnelldown lately.
Tonight, just about everyone was up for some Hartnell Down, as #19 scored what would prove to be the game-winning goal while crashing into the left post in spectacular fashion.
Highlights and a bit more on the game below, including Hartnell’s shoutout to the hashtag.

Last season, the very first game the Flyers played was against their current top rival, the Pittsburgh Penguins. They helped to open a new arena in western PA, although not quite the way the home team would have wanted. This year, we’ve had to wait more than a quarter of the season to see Jaromir Jagr and Max Talbot face their former club, which we’ll finally get to do tonight.

With things starting to come together and take shape, we’re back with another one of these amusing time lapses, slowly (or, I guess, quickly) revealing the changes to CBP in preparation for the week-long outdoor events schedule.

Scott Hartnell made the #HartnellDown hashtag flourish on Twitter long before he joined the social networking site. He couldn’t help it after all. But now that he’s tweeting away, he’s taken #HartnellDown to the next level and even offered to document his #HartnellDown moments in practice.

Dan Carcillo was a somewhat divisive player when he was with the Flyers, with many fans loving the double devil horns after a fight and others wondering why we couldn’t get a more versatile contributor to play those minutes and earn that money. He was a player that moved the needle, both on and off the ice, and that’s a quantity that has been sought in the entertainment industry since its inception.
So it shouldn’t be too much of a surprise that Carcillo now has his own radio show on WGN in Chicago, called The Bomb Shelter…
