  1. The Flyers fan’s guide to the Olympic hockey tournament

    Feb 11, 2014, 7:27 PM EDT

    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…

  2. 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,…

  3. The story of the Avs fan with the giant text on his phone calling Flyers fans mean

    Avalanche fan in front of us. We are highly amused! pic.twitter.com/kDlGUMVLk4 — Rhea Hughes (@rheahughes) February 7, 2014 There are many questions. Why is the font so big? Who is he texting? Is he texting? Who uses such a device? We actually reached out to the original photographer (Aaron who was sitting with Rhea Hughes)…

  4. Steve Mason dominates as Flyers hold on for win over Avalanche

    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…

  5. 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.…

  6. The Flyers will try to beat the Sharks tonight for the first time in over 13 years

    Feb 3, 2014, 5:00 PM EDT

    niemi.antii

    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…

  7. Richards and Carter trades boiled down to cold, hard numbers

    Would you have guessed that Voracek and Simmonds would have significantly more points than Richards and Carter? pic.twitter.com/vJuyxTzlNe — Frank Seravalli (@DNFlyers) February 1, 2014 Believe it or not, Saturday marks the first time the Philadelphia Flyers go head-to-head versus Mike Richards and Jeff Carter at the same time, a tilt nearly two years in…

  8. 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.…

  9. Photo Gallery: Wing Bowl 22

    IMG_0726

    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…

  10. Area woman eats more food than everyone else, declared champion

    Jan 31, 2014, 9:40 AM EDT

    wing.bowl

    You may remember Molly Schuyler from that ridiculous YouTube video where she ate a 72 ounce steak in around three minutes. Today, she shattered the Wing Bowl wing eating record previously held by Takero Kobayashi. Schuyler finished the day by eating 363 wings. Kobayashi’s mark was 337. The Omaha, Nebraska native said she discovered her…

  11. Flyers begin California hell trip tonight in Anaheim against NHL-best Ducks

    Jan 30, 2014, 5:43 PM EDT

    couturier.sean

    When you think of California, what are some of the first few things that come to your head? Sun, sandy beaches, palm trees, celebrities, NWA, earthquakes, cable cars and bridges, just to name a few, right? Not elite-level NHL hockey and hellish road trips. Well, if you’re a fan of the Philadelphia Flyers, those are…

  12. The Flyers have returned to their October ways

    Jan 28, 2014, 4:32 PM EDT

    Steve Mason, Braydon Coburn, Matt Calvert

    Remember last month when the Philadelphia Flyers had won 10 of 13 games overall, a 10-game home winning streak, an impressive 5-1 Western road trip and had played their way back into playoff contention? Good times, right? Well, I hope you remember those good times since they are now ancient history because the Flyers have…

  13. Steve Mason’s new goalie mask features current Flyers players as zombies [UPDATED w/ video]

    Somebody can’t wait until Walking Dead returns to AMC on Sunday nights. According to the Flyers’ Instagram account, goalie Steve Mason has a hot new mask to go along with his new multimillion dollar contract. It’s save to say Mase is something of a zombie fan as the new mask features undead Flyers players Claude…

  14. Video: The goal of the year may have been scored last night at the expense of the Flyers

    Jan 23, 2014, 4:23 PM EDT

    steve.mason

    It hasn’t been the best week in the highlight reels for the Philadelphia Flyers. Last Thursday, it was Nashville Predators’ goaltender Carter Hutton making the NHL’s potential save of the year at the expense of the Flyers. Last night, it was Carolina Hurricanes forward Nathan Gerbe scoring perhaps the NHL’s goal of the year, once…

  16. Snow Trumps Hurricanes: Tonight’s Flyers game has been postponed

    Jan 21, 2014, 3:26 PM EDT

    Mayor.Nutter

    Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter announced today that the city has declared a snow emergency as of 4:00 pm due to the heavy snow and freezing temperatures hitting the area. Word from the Flyers beat writers earlier in the day was that the Carolina Hurricanes were hoping to avoid a cancellation of tonight’s contest in South…

  17. Role reversal: Flyer unravel in third and blow late lead in shootout loss to Islanders

    Jan 20, 2014, 9:25 PM EDT

    Simmer

    The theme of the Philadelphia Flyers’ recent play has gone like this: fall behind early, comeback in the third period to win or send into overtime or maybe a shootout for at least a point. Monday afternoon on Long Island, the Flyers’ fortunes were reversed, but not in a good way, and they left Long…

  18. Yes, Steve Downie is deaf in his right ear and halted today’s game due to lost hearing aid

    Jan 20, 2014, 4:20 PM EDT

    steve.downie

    During the third period of the Flyers’ Monday afternoon matinee with the Islanders, a scrum ensued in front the teams’ respective benches. Nothing unusual for a hockey game, especially a hockey game between two longtime rival clubs. But what was unusual was the short delay after the whistles finally blew to end the tussle and…

  19. Best of all, Steve Mason’s new contract gives Flyers flexibility

    Jan 20, 2014, 1:31 PM EDT

    Steve Mason

    By all accounts, everybody was a winner over the weekend when the Philadelphia Flyers and Steve Mason agreed to a three-year contract extension worth $12.3 million. The orange and black can finally put the goaltender carousel in storage for awhile—at least we hope so—while Mason earns top-20 netminder money with a chance to cash in…

  20. Video: Flyers Michael Raffl gets stoned on ridiculous open net save of the season candidate

    Jan 16, 2014, 10:04 PM EDT

    Nashville Predators goalie Carter Hutton makes a diving save on an open net shot by Philadelphia Flyers' Michael Raffl, right, in the second period of an NHL hockey game, Thursday, Jan. 16, 2014, in Philadelphia. (AP Photo/Tom Mihalek)

    The Flyers ended up losing to the Nashville Predators in extra shootout goals. That always sucks. Especially when it looked like B. Schenn or Cooter may have iced it for you. Alas, they come away with one point. It was pretty damn entertaining game by all accounts however and those who tuned in witnessed one…

  21. Don’t forget: Flyers game watch party and The700Level meetup at Smith’s Restaurant and Bar one week from today

  22. Dope Timelapse: Kate Smith sings under South Philly skies

    Kate.Smith

    Our video man Tom at CSN is always playing with his camera equipment toys down at the South Philadelphia sports complex and got a great time lapse of the famous Kate Smith statue last night which now sits outside of Xfinity Live. The Wells Fargo Center and Lincoln Financial Field in the background under some…

  23. The Flyers had a pretty terrible weekend

    Jan 13, 2014, 5:10 PM EDT

    Scott Hartnell,  Marc Staal, Anton Stralman

    Heading into this past weekend’s double dose of games, the Philadelphia Flyers had won 10 of their last 13 overall and 10 straight home games in the friendly confines of the Wells Fargo Center. So, naturally, they laid total duds in both games and were left wondering why the bad, undisciplined Flyers from the beginning…

  24. Luke Schenn tosses Dan Carcillo like a rag doll and more video and images from a chippy Flyers loss in NY

    Jan 13, 2014, 9:31 AM EDT

    Daniel Carcillo, Luke Schenn

    The New York Rangers may have won their battle against the Philadelphia Flyers at Madison Square Garden on Sunday night, but as is usually the case in this storied rivalry, it just set the tone for the next meeting. The Rags jumped all over the Flyers, potting three goals in the game’s opening 10 minutes,…

  25. Don’t look now, but the Flyers have gone streaking

    Jan 10, 2014, 4:39 PM EDT

    vorch.mes

    Today’s Philadelphia Flyers post is brought to you by the number 10. That’s because by virtue of their 3-1 win over the visiting Montreal Canadiens on Wednesday night, the Flyers have won 10 straight home games. It’s the Orange and Black’s longest home winning streak since the 2003-2004 season when they eventually reached the Eastern…
