    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.

  4. Game 17: Flyers at Carolina Hurricanes… No Bob Verse Boosh

    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.

    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).

  8. Game 15: Flyers at Tampa Bay Lightning Let the Pronging Resume

    Nov 9, 2011, 6:11 PM EDT

    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.

  9. Four More Years: Flyers Extend Braydon Coburn

    Nov 9, 2011, 12:32 PM EDT

    On the morning all the local precincts counted their ballots and announced who would come, go, and stay in office, the Flyers cast their vote to keep defenseman Braydon Coburn stationed on the Philadelphia blue line for another four years.

    Despite being just 26, Coburn is the longest tenured Flyer currently on the roster. Tim Panaccio reports that he’ll be paid $18 million over the next four seasons, with his annual cap hit increasing from $3.2 million to $4.5 million.

  10. Flyer Fights: Why You Still Shouldn’t Mess with Simmonds, but Might Be Okay with Rinaldo and Harry Z

    Nov 7, 2011, 11:38 AM EDT

    A 9-2 hockey game broke out in the middle of a three fight card featuring Wayne Simmonds vs. Derek Dorsett, Zac Rinaldo vs. Cody Bass and (believe it or not) Harry Zolniercyzk vs. James Wisniewski (*nervously tugs collar*).

  11. Voracek and Couturier Shine as Flyers Top Blue Jackets in Jeff Carter Bowl, 9-2

    Nov 5, 2011, 11:14 PM EDT

    The talk heading into Saturday night’s matchup between the Flyers and the Columbus Blue Jackets naturally focused on the big off-season trade that sent Jeff Carter to Ohio in exchange for winger Jakub Voracek and a pair of draft picks, one of which was the eighth overall. Sean Couturier was selected with that high pick, and he made the club out of training camp. Voracek was off to a quiet start heading into the game, which Jeff Carter would watch from a suite, still recovering from a broken foot.

    Trades aren’t won and lost based solely on what each set of players does for their new team, and they especially aren’t won based on a single head-to-head matchup. But damn if this didn’t at least feel like a statement game as to which side is currently holding the better cards. Voracek, who was criticized by his former coach upon his exit from Columbus, took advantage of the opportunity to not only prove his former coach wrong, but also put a few nails in his coffin. With the Blue Jackets now 2-11-1 after being throttled 9-2 by the Flyers, Scott Arniel might not make it out of the Wells Fargo Center with a job.

  12. Game 14: Flyers Host Blue Jackets, Voracek Has Something to Prove

    Nov 5, 2011, 6:06 PM EDT

    After dropping a disappointing shootout loss to the Devils on Thursday, the Flyers get a rebound game with what has to date been one of the worst teams in the NHL. Maybe the worst. The Columbus Blue Jackets opened the season with eight straight losses and have won just twice to date. After trading the eighth overall pick and Jakub Voracek to the Flyers for Jeff Carter and signing free agent defenseman Jeff Wisniewski in the off-season, the team was expected to improve on its 81-point offering from last season. Instead, they’re bailing water over the side to keep some glimmer of hope alive.

  13. Jeff Carter Has Fond Memories of Philly Fans

    Nov 5, 2011, 2:16 PM EDT

    The Columbus Blue Jackets are in town to face the Flyers tonight, and although Jeff Carter will unfortunately not suit up, he did have some kind words upon his return to the Wells Fargo Center. Per Adam Kimelman of NHL.com, Carter had this to say:

    Nov 3, 2011, 11:01 PM EDT

  17. Game 13: New Jersey Devils at Philadelphia Flyers … Helping to 900

    Nov 3, 2011, 5:43 PM EDT

    The Flyers are back at it tonight in the friendly confines of the Wells Fargo Center to take on the rival Devils. The Orange and Black will try to recapture the red hot start they got off too last night in Buffalo while the W.F. Center will try to brush the dirt off its shoulders after hosting Hov and ‘Ye on Wednesday — plenty of ice in the building last night as well.

  18. Kaleta Gets 4-Game Suspension from NHL

  21. Flyers Ride Great Start, Chase Ryan Miller and Hold Off Sabres

    Nov 2, 2011, 11:55 PM EDT

    Coming into Wednesday night’s Flyers-Sabres game in Buffalo, Ryan Miller was had lost his previous three starts, with Buffalo’s only win in its last four games commune with Jonas Enroth in net. The all-world goalie (you apparently can’t talk about Miller without saying “all-world”) wouldn’t survive the first period against the Flyers, with the visitors putting three of their first ten shots past him before Lindy Ruff turned the game over to Enroth.

    The change in net (and presumably a Ruffing up in the intermission) revitalized the Sabres, who got their act together to start the second and eventually score the game’s next two goals. Ceding momentum, the Flyers weren’t able to beat Enroth at all, but they managed to keep Buffalo at bay despite facing some good opportunities right up until the final whistle.

    A look at how the Flyers got to Miller, and why bad bounces and deflections refuse to let Ilya Bryzgalov find his way completely out of the woods.

  22. Game 12: Philadelphia Flyers at Buffalo Sabres… Ville Struggles as Flyers Continue to Evolve

    Nov 2, 2011, 3:53 PM EDT

    The one-time playoff hero of the Flyers has not found his groove in upstate New York, scoring in his debut, but not since. In fact, he’s added just one assist since then. Only one Flyer who has played in all 11 games has two points or less…

  23. Call Reversed: Bryzgalov Media Ban Deemed Un-CBA’able

    Nov 1, 2011, 8:03 AM EDT

    The big Flyers story yesterday—an off day following a big weekend win—was the muzzling of goalie Ilya Bryzgalov. The quote machine’s media availability was limited to a scant amount, either by the man himself or his team. You may have noticed a lot of people getting pretty upset over it. And, as we learned in Puck Daddy’s coverage of the news, Sam Carchidi filed a complaint with the Professional Hockey Writers Association.

    According to Tim Panaccio, Kevin Allen of the PHWA had a conference call with the Flyers, during which he informed them that limiting the media’s access to Bryzgalov violated the league’s media policy as outlined in the collective bargaining agreement.

    big-dollar off-season goalie acquisition “will no longer talk to the media except in postgame situations in which he plays.”

  25. And We’re Back G-Line Dominates Hurricanes, Bryzgalov Nearly Perfect

    Oct 29, 2011, 9:58 PM EDT

    We waited the entire remainder of the Sopranos series to find out what happened to the Russian who was lost in the woods, to no avail, as he never resurfaced. We only had to wait one game to see the Flyers own lost Russian re-emerge.
