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

    Dec 13, 2013, 9:00 AM EDT

    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…

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

    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…

  3. 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…

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

    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…

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

    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…

  6. 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…

  7. 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…

  8. 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…

  9. 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…

  10. 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…

  11. 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…

  12. 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…

  13. 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…

  14. 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…

  15. 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…

  16. Photo: Nick Grossmann’s ‘save’ bails out Flyers

    Nov 20, 2013, 1:14 AM EDT

    grossmann-save2

    Just how close was the Flyers’ flirtation with disaster on Tuesday night? There’s the shot up above—you be the judge. Sure, Philadelphia wound up defeating the Ottawa Senators 5-2, so in the grand scheme of things Nick Grossmann kicking the puck out of his own net might not seem to have mattered all that much.…

  17. Lorenzo’s Pizza now available at the Wells Fargo Center

    Nov 19, 2013, 3:11 PM EDT

    pizza

    Some strange people around the Internets were not exactly satisfied recently with the “limited” food offerings at the beautiful home of the Flyers, Sixers, and numerous Lady Gaga and Justin Bieber concerts. Those nitwits will be happy to learn that Lorenzo & Sons Pizza — a staple of South Street and Will Smith songs —…

  18. Edmonton Oilers GM heard Ilya Bryzgalov is a ‘terrible’ person

    Nov 19, 2013, 2:32 PM EDT

    bryz

    Ilya Bryzgalov is back in the NHL after a brief conditioning stint with the Edmonton Oilers’ AHL affiliate. It’s somewhat surprising it happened so fast. Little more than a month ago, Bryz was being courted by an ECHL franchise. Then again, I suppose Edmonton isn’t much better. The Oilers have a 5-15-2 record this season,…

  19. The Flyers are just 4 points out of a playoff spot in a terrible Metropolitan Division

    Nov 18, 2013, 6:14 PM EDT

    Screen shot 2013-11-18 at 6.14.21 PM

    So far this season, the Flyers have endured their worst eight-game start in franchise history at 1-7 , saw their head coach hit the unemployment line after all of three games, made headlines for all the wrong reasons after a goalie “fight,” and have gone through such awful offensive dry spells that their most-skilled players…

  20. The Flyers basically own Pittsburgh’s CONSOL Energy Center

    Nov 14, 2013, 6:50 PM EDT

    flyers.penguins.couturier

    Looking for a great way to get under the skin of your most-hated rival and its fan base? How about winning almost every game you’ve played in that hated-rival’s new hockey arena since it opened a few years ago. Yeah, that’ll sting. Well, if you look at a satellite image of downtown Pittsburgh, odds are…

  21. Flyers look to keep offensive momentum going tonight in Pittsburgh

    Nov 13, 2013, 5:13 PM EDT

    matt.read

    After last Thursday’s dreadful, eye-gouge-worthy, 3-0 loss to New Jersey, if you had said the Flyers would be rolling into Pittsburgh tonight with some offensive momentum, most Flyer fans would have looked at you as if you had three heads. Well, guess what? You don’t have three heads because the Flyers are actually rolling into…

  22. Sens backup goalie on Emery’s fight: ‘It’s assault, isn’t it?’

    Nov 12, 2013, 4:55 PM EDT

    ray.emery

    Your last-place Flyers are back in action tonight in Ottawa—can you feel the excitement? Despite scuffling through the first five weeks of the season though, Philadelphia has managed to remain at the forefront of the NHL news cycle thanks to one Ray Emery. Emery’s beatdown of Washington netminder Braden Holtby has sparked much debate and…

  23. Video: Fred Shero inducted into Hockey Hall of Fame by son Ray

    Nov 12, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    I won’t pretend to know a lot about Fred Shero other than what I’ve read in history books or seen in documentaries. His NHL coaching career was over before I was born, and he passed away in 1990 when I was still a child. I know the important stuff though. Shero was behind the bench…

  24. Claude Giroux FINALLY scores his first goal of season

    Nov 11, 2013, 4:48 PM EDT

    claude.giroux

    Well, it only took six weeks, but Flyers’ superstar Claude Giroux finally scored his first goal of the 2013-14 season. Giroux wristed the puck past Edmonton goaltender Devan Dubnyk at 11 minutes, 26 seconds of the third period for the eventual game-winner in the Flyers’ 4-2 victory over the Oilers this past Saturday afternoon at…
