  1. Video: Claude Giroux’s goal of the year caps crazy Flyers’ comeback win over Blue Jackets

    Dec 19, 2013, 11:08 PM EDT

    Claude Giroux

    Well, for your sake, I certainly hope you didn’t change the channel or leave the Wells Fargo Center after the second period of Thursday night’s Flyers game. If you did, you’re probably feeling pretty salty right about now because you missed the rest of a game we’re going to be talking about for a while.…

  2. Inside the Flyers’ seven-game home winning streak

    Lately, it may seem like the Philadelphia Flyers have been on the road for an eternity.  You’re not crazy if you think that way because the Flyers basically have been on the road for the last month. The Orange and Black have played nine of their last twelve games away from Wells Fargo Center and…

  3. Flyers nearly sent Mike Richards to Columbus too in Jeff Carter trade

    5-carter-richards-USA

    June 23, 2011—the day that changed the course of history for the Philadelphia Flyers, and for the entire NHL really. Little more than a year after coming within two wins of hoisting the Stanley Cup, general manager Paul Holgrem blew up the team’s core, trading Jeff Carter to Columbus and captain Mike Richards to Los…

  4. Video: Flyers take down the Caps but may lose Brayden Schenn to injury after vicious hit

    The Philadelphia Flyers went into Tuesday night’s return match with the Washington Capitals looking to redeem themselves after choking away a three-goal lead to the same Caps team on Sunday. The Flyers did just that and extended their home winning streak to seven games but did so at the possible cost of losing another key…

  5. Flyers look to redeem themselves as they get another crack at the Capitals tonight

    Following the Eagles’ clunker of a loss in Minnesota this past Sunday, a good portion of you may have flipped over to the Flyers game – which started at 3 PM — to try and get some of those positive Philly sports vibes back into your system. If you did flip over to the Flyers…

  6. On Steve Mason slumping: if it’s not one thing for the Flyers, it’s another

    Dec 17, 2013, 1:29 PM EDT

    mason-gianta

    For a long stretch, the main reason the Philadelphia Flyers had a chance to win on any given night was between the pipes. Steve Mason, acquired from Columbus at last season’s trade deadline for Michael Leighton and a third-round pick, had played himself into early Vezina Trophy conversations over the first two months of the…

  7. The 1984-85 Flyers want to wish you a Merry Christmas

    Dec 15, 2013, 8:30 PM EDT

    bob.clarke

    Dug out from the classic holiday hockey archives, watch as the 1984-85 Flyers read, “The Night Before Christmas” in the least charismatic way possible. Coach “Iron” Mike Keenan actually seems annoyed he has to deliver some Christmas joy. Ilkka Sinisalo doesn’t seem to have any idea what he’s reading and Brad Marsh looks plain suspicious.…

  8. Video: Flyers help a returning soldier shock his parents with the coolest return home ever

    Dec 13, 2013, 4:30 PM EDT

    windish-fam

    Plenty of things happened during the Flyers’ 2-1 win over the Montreal Canadiens last night in South Philly. Danny Briere came home, Claude Giroux and Michael Raffl both scored in their first game as new linemates, the Flyers bounced back nicely after they were trounced in Chicago the night before and all sorts of shenanigans…

  9. Scott Hartnell’s children’s book ‘Hartnelldown’ is now on sale

    Dec 13, 2013, 12:48 PM EDT

    hartnelldown-book

    Here’s a nice stocking stuffer for the young Flyers fan in your life. Be sure to pick up the epic autobiography of Scott Hartnell, Hartnelldown, the story of a young Canadian man’s struggle to escape the mean streets of Regina, Saskatchewan. Okay, we’re being told that’s not the book at all. Hartnelldown is actually a…

  10. Stop blaming Claude Giroux for Flyers scoring woes

    Dec 13, 2013, 10:33 AM EDT

    giroux.habs

    Flyers captain Claude Giroux has taken an abundance of heat lately. As the captain and most talented attacker, he rightfully wears the responsibility of his 28th ranked offense and 18th ranked power play. He deserves contempt for his lackadaisical play and poor puck decisions. Yet while much of the condemnation facing Giroux is justified, the…

  11. Video: All hell breaks loose after Flyers hang on for 2-1 victory over the Habs

    Dec 13, 2013, 9:00 AM EDT

    mason-gianta

    The obvious storyline heading into the Flyers’ Thursday evening tilt with the Montreal Canadiens was the return of Danny Briere to Wells Fargo Center for the first time since he was bought out by the Flyers and subsequently signed with the Canadiens this past summer. And while Briere didn’t score despite registering three shots on…

  12. Video: Danny Briere talks fondly of oft-maligned Philly fans

    briere

    The Flyers have been playing some awful hockey as of late and after finishing off their road trip by letting the Bears put up a touchdown on them in Chicago last night they’re back in Philadelphia and hosting a familiar baby face this evening. Danny Briere returns to play at the Wells Fargo Center tonight…

  13. Video: Sean Couturier is too much for Kyle Turris in rare fight

    Dec 10, 2013, 9:00 AM EDT

    Sean Couturier

    21-year-old Sean Couturier is becoming an excellent all-around player right before our very eyes. Last week, Coots set a career high with four points in a game. On Monday, he experienced his first NHL fight. The Philadelphia Flyers are no strangers to fighting. According to HockeyFights.com, the Bullies are second only to the Toronto Maple…

  14. Vinny Lecavalier to miss at least 3-4 weeks after “back spasms” turn into a back fracture

    Dec 8, 2013, 9:33 PM EDT

    lecav-debut

    Courtesy of the Flyers, here comes the rain – no corny snow puns here, folks – to put a bit of a damper on your parade of a Philadelphia sports day. If the 5-1 pasting they took in Dallas on Saturday afternoon wasn’t bad enough, it turns out Vinny Lecavalier is injured much worse than…

  15. Video: Zac Rinaldo racks up 27 penalty minutes in 4 seconds of ice time

    Dec 7, 2013, 8:00 PM EDT

    Zac Rinaldo Antoine Roussel Jordie Benn

    The Philadelphia Flyers’ uneven play continued on Saturday. Three days after upending the Detroit Red Wings 6-3, the Bullies were pummeled by the Dallas Stars 5-1, preventing their latest bid to climb above the .500 mark on Saturday. Obviously, this loss can be blamed on the orange and black having to go without Zac Rinaldo…

  16. Looking back at Philadelphia pro athletes’ Movember mustaches

    Dec 5, 2013, 4:20 PM EDT

    giroux.stache

    With another Movember in the books as of last Saturday, it’s time for The 700 Level to take a look back at some of the fine mustaches that adorned the upper-lip areas of your favorite Philadelphia pro athletes. Yes, mostly Flyers are featured. Sorry. A relentless search of the interwebs and social media didn’t produce…

  17. Coming-of-age? Sean Couturier dominates in Flyers’ 6-3 win over Detroit

    Dec 5, 2013, 12:32 AM EDT

    Sean Couturier

    Sean Couturier turns 21-years-old this Saturday, but he’s already well into his third full season in the NHL, and really starting to come into his own as an all-around player. He may have made a name for himself in the Philadelphia Flyers’ nationally televised 6-3 win over the Detroit Red Wings on Wednesday night. Couturier…

  18. Yo, Flyers, start being selfish and shoot the puck more

    Dec 4, 2013, 4:53 PM EDT

    flyers.shot.shoot

    The Philadelphia Flyers are currently riding a five-game home winning streak. That’s cool and all, but it doesn’t mean squat these days because they’re are in the midst of six-game road trip – which continues tonight in Detroit – that has them away from Wells Fargo Center until next Thursday. And while the Orange and…

  19. 29th in the NHL in scoring, hard to take Flyers ‘resurgence’ seriously

    Dec 4, 2013, 2:52 PM EDT

    Wayne Simmonds, Josh Harding

    The Philadelphia Flyers were better in month two of the regular season than in month one, but any talk of resurgence might be a bit overblown. After all, when you get off to a 1-7 start, usually there’s nowhere to go but up. So up the orange and black have climbed in the standings to…

  20. Photo Gallery: Steve Mason all but stood on his head in Flyers’ shootout win

    Dec 1, 2013, 7:00 AM EDT

    Matt Hendricks, Steve Mason

    Steve Mason continues to make the Philadelphia Flyers relevant. In the box score, it was another ho-hum 34-save night that carried the orange and black to a 3-2 shootout victory in Nashville on Saturday, but as you can see from these photos, the effort was far from routine. Mason kicks, pokes, swats, dives and sprawls…

  21. Flyers look to rebound and try not to lay another dud tonight in Tampa

    Nov 27, 2013, 6:28 PM EDT

    vinny

    We all knew that the Flyers’ point streak and recent hot stretch would eventually come an end. But man, oh, man was that ever a dud they laid in South Florida on Monday night. The Orange and Black sleepwalked through the first 40 minutes and could never recover as they were dropped by a particularly…

  22. The Read-Couturier-Downie line has been pretty good for the Flyers, who play the crummy Panthers tonight

    Nov 25, 2013, 6:24 PM EDT

    matt.read

    As you may have heard, the Flyers are 6-0-1 in their last seven games, have earned 13 of a possible 14 points during the successful stretch and have clawed their way out of the Metropolitan Division basement to currently sit just two points behind the New York Rangers for the division’s last playoff spot. That’s…

  23. Flyers continue home stand tonight against terrible Sabres

    Nov 21, 2013, 5:23 PM EDT

    20131121-172225.jpg

    So you think the Flyers had an awful start to this season? I call your thoughts on the Flyers bad start and raise you tonight’s Wells Fargo Center visitor, the terrible Buffalo Sabres. The Sabres are essentially the NHL’s version of a tire fire that’s been burning out of control for the season’s first two…

  24. Texts from Mike Richards kinda helped Claude Giroux break out of his funk

    Nov 20, 2013, 4:24 PM EDT

    5-carter-richards-USA

    There’s a lot of pressure that comes with being the best player on the Flyers. That pressure is magnified when you’re also the captain of the Flyers. Combine those two things with an underperforming team and a personal 15-game goal-less drought to start the season and it’s basically an apocalyptic Philadelphia hockey crisis. Good thing…

  25. Flyers B. Schenn on the trading block and why that’s a bad idea

    Nov 20, 2013, 11:36 AM EDT

    Brayden Schenn, Matt Read

    While the Flyers were busy taking down the Ottawa Senators on Tuesday for their fourth win in five games, TSN analyst Darren Dreger was busy stirring the rumor pot. According to the report, the Flyers are (very) quietly shopping forward Brayden Schenn. But to get done, the deal needs to be the “right” one for…
