We know Ilya Bryzgalov is a big history buff so it’s no surprise his new custom mask for the Winter Classic pays tribute to some of the great Philly sports icons. Mike Schmidt, Reggie White, Dr. J, Bobby Clarke, and the Phillie Phanatic are all featured prominently on the new goalie mask. Veterans Stadium also makes a nice appearance.

The obsession with brand new custom-painted goalie masks isn’t reserved for those who still play in the NHL. In fact, legendary Flyers goalie Bernie Parent will join in Mask Mania by getting a replica of his old plain white mask airbrushed up with classic imagery from his days as a Flyer so he can wear the newly designed mask in the lead up to the Winter Classic. It will then be auctioned off for charity. [check out the sweet video below]

A few Flyers defensemen came up with some big plays in their 3-2 shootout loss to the Colorado Avalanche, but this one by Braydon Coburn was pretty stellar.

There’s probably not a whole lot of small details or minor lessons the Flyers or any of us fans want to remember about Saturday’s absolute ass-kicking at the hands of the Boston Bruins. One thing’s for sure though, while they need to move on and play as if that game didn’t happen, it was a good wake-up call that they’re not quite where they need to be. Right now, they’re good enough to have a fun regular season ride with all the usual ups and downs. But are they good enough to make a deep playoff run, or go all the way to a Cup?
While it was only one game, that 6-0 loss to last year’s champs was indeed a measuring stick, and the Flyers came up very short. Of course, they were without some key players, including their top forward and top defenseman, and it appears we’ll get the former back soon. But the latter may never be, and Saturday should show the Flyers the level they need to aspire for between now and, way down the road, the playoffs.
The road continues in Denver tonight, where the Flyers begin a five-game road trip with a 9PM start against the Avalanche. A former Cup-winning goalie tandem highlights the storylines.

Mike Falciani, an eagle-eyed The700Level.com reader, sent us this photo taken this afternoon of City Hall as seen from 1500 Market Street. From what we can tell, it looks like the old jersey William Penn, who sits high atop the building looking down on us, wore during the 1997 Stanley Cup Finals when the Flyers played the Detroit Red Wings.

The NHL released this official rendering today of what they hope Citizens Bank Park will look like on January 2nd, 2012 for the Bridgestone Winter Classic. Clearly, they’re hoping Old Man Winter dumps a Nor’easter full of snow onto the Delaware Valley.

It may not mean he’s close to returning just yet, but Claude Giroux is at least skating with the Flyers in Colorado this afternoon. The team posted this pic of him donning the yellow non-contact gear, which is quite a relieving sight even if we don’t yet know what it means for his return to game play.

The Boston Bruins beat the Philadelphia Flyers 6-0 in a matchup between the top two teams in the NHL’s Eastern Conference. Sean Courturier suffered a possible concussion after being struck in the head with a Kimmo Timonen slapshot.

Deep thinkers are fascinated by the humongous big universe. And sports blog readers are nothing if not deep thinkers. So it was with great pleasure we watched Deep Thoughts with Ilya Bryzgalov on HBO on Wednesday night.

The mood among Flyers faithful was rather somber on Thursday night as word of Chris Pronger being out for the entire season hit Twitter and eventually the game’s telecast itself. Never easy to hear such bad news. The Flyers who were on the ice did their best to try and cheer the down orange and black fans by delivering a nice road victory.

While we all knew he had potential, Ilya Bryzgalov was clearly the breakout star of HBO’s 24/7 Flyers/Rangers with his waxing poetic on the universe and killing tigers.
Dec 14, 2011, 11:41 PM EDT
Lavy’s a total badass. Ilya Bryzgalov is the team’s Renaissance man. But damn it if one of the best moments I’ve ever seen on television wasn’t the Flyers apparent celebration routine following games they win.

The Flyers looked fantastic last night in their romp of Dale Hunter’s Washington Capitals, but even in a great win, the orange and black were not without a folly — mostly due to the man in black.
Dec 13, 2011, 5:16 PM EDT
the Flyers may be without their top offensive and defensive players, respectively, but they still have every bit a team that should be expected to be in every game they play.
