Claude Giroux’s rise to NHL superstardom continued on Friday, when he scored a pair of second period goals and helped generate another as the Flyers came back to beat the Montreal Canadiens, 3-1. G was simply jaw-dropping in the second and third periods, and Carey Price and the Habs defenders had no answer for him. With goals and moves like these, how could they?
Recap, video highlights, and some injury news

We’ve been eager to find out which former Flyers would lace up the skates and once again don the winged P when the team’s alumni face off with the old men of the New York Rangers on New Year’s Eve. We knew Eric Lindros and John LeClair were scheduled to appear, but that Mikael Renberg wouldn’t be available to complete the Legion of Doom Voltron.
Today, the Flyers announced the full roster is it currently stands, with a nice cross-section of previous eras. Let’s take a look at the guys who will be there, as well as those we wish could be.

Today at 3:00 p.m., the Flyers host the Montreal Canadiens, who have picked up some steam since a terrible start had them sitting at 1-5-2 in late October. Now 10-9-3, les Habs are still toward the bottom of their division, evenly trading wins with losses lately.

The Flyers and Islanders got off to a fast start last night—historically fast in fact. Each team scored on its first shot, the score tied at 1 just 37 seconds in. Per Elias, that’s the fastest 1-1 tie in team history and second fastest in NHL history.
That being said, it basically sucked. All the elation of Andrej Meszaros scoring 18 seconds in was immediately erased by the Kyle Okposo equalizer. Worse yet was Okposo netting the go-ahead goal on a gorgeous display of Islanders passing 10 minutes later, then assisting on a third Isles goal with a minute and a half left in the period.
Fortunately, the Flyers would come all the way back. A look at the goals and more
Nov 23, 2011, 4:29 PM EDT
Coming off a pair of losses to two weaker NHL clubs, the Flyers get a crack at one of the absolute worst tonight up in Long Island. As is their custom, the Islanders are playing woefully bad hockey and currently sit in the cellar of the Eastern Conference with just 13 points on five wins.

Notes and highlights from the Flyers’ 4-2 loss to Carolina. If nothing else, worth a look at JVR’s sick move on the assist to Matt Read.
Nov 21, 2011, 9:18 PM EDT
The NHL’s poster boy and arguably its best player returned to the ice on Monday night after a 10-month layoff due to the effects of concussions. On his third shift, Crosby scored. And it was pretty sick, a backhander to the near top corner.
Nov 21, 2011, 5:19 PM EDT
Add two more names to the Flyers’ list of skating wounded. Defensemen Chris Pronger and Braydon Coburn won’t face the Carolina Hurricanes tonight, each sitting with as-yet undisclosed injuries (ie, it hasn’t been specified whether they are upper or lower body injuries). Marc-Andre Bourdon and Kevin Marshall will dress in their places

After months of speculation and fake jersey after fake jersey, the Flyers finally ended the hype machine by unveiling the official jerseys they’ll wear against the Rangers for the Winter Classic at Citizens Bank Park on January 2nd.
Nov 20, 2011, 5:17 PM EDT
For the second straight time against the Winnipeg Jets, the Flyers started the game in embarrassing fashion, conceding the first three goals of the night to the Jets. Scott Hartnell scored before they went to the dressing room, but the Jets came out flying in the second, notching two more before Hartnell again tallied on the power play. That’s when Flyers rookie Matt Read got hot.

A look Ilya Bryzgalov’s efforts to make amends to the fans in Winnipeg, who had as good a showing as their team on Saturday.
Nov 19, 2011, 12:33 PM EDT
CSN’s Tim Panaccio and Sarah Baicker are hearing that the Flyers will retire Mark Howe’s number before a Flyers-Red Wings game on Tuesday, March 6th. Howe, who was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame last week, finished his career with the Red Wings and currently works as their Director of Pro Scouting.
The Hall of Fame induction news brought with it a resurgence in the calls to see Howe’s 2 raised to the rafters in Philadelphia, and the Flyers appear ready to oblige.

When the facial hair reminds you in any way of San Francisco Giants closer Brian Wilson, well, we don’t know if we’re a fan. That’s the vibe we got last night when we saw Claude Giroux’s dyed ‘stache. G gets incredibly high marks for effort, but it doesn’t appear to be a look he can pull off real well.
Nov 18, 2011, 10:06 AM EDT
How about that big old bear hug Ilya Bryzgalov gave Matt Read moments after the Flyers rookie slammed in the game winner with seconds left in the third period? He probably picked that move up in the woods somewhere.
Nov 17, 2011, 5:40 PM EDT
The big storyline Thursday night is Ilya Bryzgalov taking on his former team, the Phoenix Coyotes, at the Wells Fargo Center.
Nov 15, 2011, 9:38 AM EDT
With nods to his former teammates, the men who drafted him, the victims of the plane crash in Russia—including his former blue line partner Brad McCrimmon, and loving and thankful words to his mother and father, Howe represented everyone on his hockey career path well.

The Philadelphia Flyers beat the Carolina Hurricanes 5-3 at RBC Center in Raleigh, North Carolina. Claude Giroux led the way, scoring two goals, as the Flyers picked up back-to-back wins
Nov 14, 2011, 5:51 PM EDT
The Flyers are back at it tonight in Carolina after getting a win on Sunday against the Panthers down in Florida. The Orange and Black have had the Hurricanes’ number over the past few seasons, with a 15-1-2 record over their last 18 meetings. They’ll look to continue that dominance tonight with Sergei Bobrovsky in net.

Recap and highlights from the Flyers’ 3-2 win over the Florida Panthers
Nov 13, 2011, 11:42 AM EDT
Having wrapped up the “annual bonding trip” portion of their road set in Florida, the Flyers are back in action Sunday afternoon at 5, when we’ll either be celebrating the Eagles stay of execution or possibly setting things on fire. The Flyers are in Sunrise to face the Panthers, who are off to a good start, with a record exactly on par with that of the Orange & Black (8-4-3).

Most of the news in the sporting world this week has had very little to do with the actual playing of games. Unfortunately, what little we had from the field of play was a crushing Eagles defeat on Monday Night Football, wherein the only thing keeping the door from slamming shut on our hopes for meaningful football in the coming months were our now bloody fingers.
That finally changes tonight when, after a seemingly long layoff, the Flyers are back in action as they begin a road trip in Tampa. As opposed to some of the shitful teams they’ve played lately, the Lightning are actually pretty good despite currently sitting in the middle of the Southeast Division standings. After a terrible start to the season saw them winning just one of their first six contests, Tampa have put together a fairly impressive run of late.
Fortunately, the Flyers appear to have weathered the storm of being without their top defenseman, as Chris Pronger is expected back in the lineup tonight.
