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

    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…

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

    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…

  3. Claude Giroux left off Canadian Olympics roster

    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…

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

    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…

  5. The Flyers might actually be decent

    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…

  6. 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…

  7. 5 reasons Philly sports fans should be excited for 2014

    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…

  8. 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…

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

    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…

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

    bryz

    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,…

    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.…

    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…

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

    Dec 19, 2013, 3:32 PM EDT

    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…

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

    Dec 18, 2013, 12:20 AM EDT

    flyers.caps.schenn

    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…

    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…

  21. 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…

  22. 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.…

    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…

    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…

  25. 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…
