  1. 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…

  2. 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

    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…

  3. 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…

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

    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…

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

    We’re exactly one week away from our Flyers game watch party at Smith’s Restaurant and Bar which will go down next Thursday, January 23rd when the Flyers take on the Blue Jackets on the road. We’ve got a pretty great list of you who’ve already RSVPd to come out and enjoy a few cold ones…

    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…

  7. The Flyers had a pretty terrible weekend

    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…

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

    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,…

  9. 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…

  10. Don’t Forget: Come to Smith’s on January 23rd for The700Level meet up and Flyers watch party

    We’re less than two weeks away from our big bash at Smith’s Restaurant and Bar in Rittenhouse for The700Level meetup and Flyers game watch party. Most of the Level crew will be in attendance, so be sure to come on out on January 23rd to enjoy a few cold beers and a chance to tell…

  11. Video: Brayden Schenn suffers nasty gash from skate blade, scores overtime winner for Flyers

    20140108-095551.jpg

    There have been numerous bright spots for the Philadelphia Flyers on their most recent six-game road trip. But perhaps nothing on the trip has been brighter than the play of Brayden Schenn, who began the trip with a 15-game goalless drought. On Tuesday night, the 22-year-old forward capped off the Flyers’ road trip in style…

  12. Giroux was near tears over not making Canadian Olympic team

    Jan 7, 2014, 3:45 PM EDT

    giroux

    You have to feel for Claude Giroux a little bit, who was left off of the Canadian hockey team’s roster on Tuesday for the upcoming Olympics in February. The Philadelphia Flyers captain got off to a slow start this season, and while he’s been hot of late, well, that’s what happens. How much did Giroux…

  13. Claude Giroux left off Canadian Olympics roster

    Jan 7, 2014, 11:51 AM EDT

    giroux.stache

    The Winter Olympics get under way in Sochi, Russia in just a couple of weeks. And while it’s usually country first, it’s also nice to cheer for Flyers players when they’re not going up against the red, white, and blue. You won’t get the chance to cheer for Claude Giroux this year as he was…

  14. Well, at least the Flyers won on Saturday night

    Jan 5, 2014, 9:10 PM EDT

    So there I am on Saturday night out with a friend at some bar I’ve never been to in some suburb I’ve never been to and ordering way too much fried food at about 8 p.m. when I looked up at the random TV without football on and then I remembered… …Holy moly, the Flyers…

  15. The Flyers might actually be decent

    Jan 3, 2014, 3:49 PM EDT

    flyers.edmonton

    Overcoming nine losses in 12 games to start the season, ridiculous injuries and the albatross that is Andrej Meszaros’ part time work on defense, the Flyers have shown something that seemed utterly unbelievable in October: They might actually be a somewhat decent team. Since flopping out of the gate and firing coach Peter Laviolette, the…

  16. thekrisheim’s 2013 Year in Philly Sports

    Jan 2, 2014, 11:48 AM EDT

    Delmon Young

    One of our favorite end of year traditions here at The700Level.com is having one of our longest tenured commenters and friend, thekrisheim, reflect back on the year in Philly sports that was. You can read his look back at 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, and today his look back at 2013 below. No playoffs, new…

  17. 5 reasons Philly sports fans should be excited for 2014

    Jan 1, 2014, 3:52 PM EDT

    shady-belt

    5. Playoffs! 2013 came and went, and not one of the big four managed to reach their respective sport’s postseason. In fact, we have to go all the way back to May of 2012 when the Flyers and 76ers both advanced to the quarterfinals. Philadelphia did have some postseason representation in 2013. La Salle’s men’s…

  18. You’re not crazy: The Flyers won a second straight game in a shootout

    Dec 31, 2013, 5:03 PM EDT

    mase

    The Philadelphia Flyers have won back-to-back games via shootouts. I repeat, the Philadelphia Flyers have won back-to-back games via shootouts. This is not a drill. You can stop rubbing your eyes and pinching yourselves, because it’s as true as can be. The Flyers rallied late to tie thanks to a Brayden Schenn goal with less…

  19. GIF: Ilya Bryzgalov throws stick in the air as Flyers celebrate

    Dec 29, 2013, 12:16 PM EDT

    bryz-oil

    For one brief moment, all was right in the universe. The Philadelphia Flyers had just tied the Edmonton Oilers in the third period with a Scott Hartnell goal off the two-man advantage, and Ilya Bryzgalov cracked. Luckily, it was captured forever in a brilliant GIF. There really is no other way to describe this besides…

  20. Flyers will pay Ilya Bryzgalov $20k to play against them

    Ilya “Costly Mistake” Bryzgalov made it back to the NHL last month, though he doesn’t look the part quite yet. Bryz still dons a plain white mask when he’s between the pipes for the Edmonton Oilers. It’s a wonder he hasn’t adorned his mask with rare jewels, courtesy of the Philadelphia Flyers. Bryzgalov hit the…

    2012 Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic - Practice Sessions

    No matter how good, bad, mediocre or dysfunctional the Philadelphia Flyers may be, they almost always draw the eyes and attention of North American viewers. The latest proof of that is another potential Winter Classic appearance for the Orange and Black. This came up a few days ago – sorry, that whole Christmas thing kind…

    Chip Kelly, Nick Foles, Riley Cooper

    The year 2013 got off to a pretty good start for Philadelphia sports fans, with the firing on New Years’ Eve of Andy Reid. Unfortunately, nothing else good happened for quite awhile, with the Phillies, Sixers and Flyers all turning in awful seasons. It was another year without a local championship, just like all of…

    It wasn’t long ago that our year-end lists of best and worst Philly games of the year were chock full of things like playoff clinchers, post-season upsets, and crushing losses when a championship legitimately seemed in reach. Sad to say, the stakes for sports in the city of Philadelphia were a lot lower in 2013,…
