  1. Halloweening Costs Sheldon Brown 10k

    Sep 24, 2009, 4:37 PM EDT

    We all figured it was coming… The league isn't much for prop comedy, so it's no surprise to learn that Sheldon Brown has been fined for wearing a Jason-style goalie mask during player introductions at the Linc last Sunday. ESPN's Adam Schefter tweets that the cost to Brown will be $10,000.  Money is a strange…

  2. Sixers Unveil New Jerseys, With Throwback Stitching From Colonial Times

    Sep 23, 2009, 2:16 PM EDT

    read more of Enrico's experience at the event today here. Nice hat! We all pretty much know what the Sixers new unis will look like, a throwback to the glory years of classicly sewn simplicity, but I've still been looking forward to seeing them officially unveiled today. I'm a nerd for uniform updates, new goalie…

  3. Nitty’s New Face

    Mar 30, 2009, 9:51 AM EDT

    We're always up for some goalie mask pr0n here at the Level, so we were happy to see Flyers backup backstop Antero Niittymaki rocking a new mask last night. It's a variation on the same theme his old mask carried, highlighting the nickname former coach Ken Hitchcock gave him. Nitty is an easy variation on…

  4. The Evster and Enrico head over to the Frozen Four

    Apr 11, 2014, 8:22 AM EDT


    Late Thursday afternoon, Enrico scored two free tickets to the Frozen Four at the Wells Fargo Center. Knowing I’m a huge hockey fan — and have literally never had plans on a weeknight — he asked me to tag along. The following is a minute by minute report of what took place. Pregame: We are…

  5. 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 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…

  6. Bryz Will Try to Make Philly His Happy Place

    Feb 18, 2012, 5:40 PM EDT

    The latest post-loss quote by Flyers goalie Ilya Bryzgalov may piss fans off again, but should it?

    We’ve already talked about Claude Giroux and Peter Laviolette clowning Steve Ott, as well as Lavvy’s ability to channel Sir Alex Ferguson and the Temple of Doom. Time to look at the rest of the third installment of HBO’s 24/7 from Wednesday night.

  10. Flyers Winter Classic Alumni Game Roster Announced; Thoughts on Who’ll Be There, Who’ll Be Missed

    Nov 25, 2011, 4:48 PM EDT

    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.

  11. Ilya Bryzgalov: ‘I Have Zero Confidence in Myself Right Now’

    Oct 27, 2011, 11:39 PM EDT

    In the aftermath of the Flyers’ 9-8 loss to the Winnipeg Jets, Ilya Bryzgalov—who didn’t even start the game—took full responsibility for his side not winning. Bryz was emotional, clearly upset with himself for failing to help his team complete a monumental comeback.

    “I have zero confidence in myself right now. (Unintelligible) I am terrible. I will now apologize in front of the fans, in front of my teammates. I don’t know what’s going on. I have no answer for you guys. I thought in the last game against Montreal, that nothing worse was going to happen. Today was worse.”

  12. Ilya Is Here! Flyers and Bryzgalov Open Negotiations

    Jun 16, 2011, 4:13 PM EDT

    Over the next two days, the Flyers brass will meet with the goalie whose name they hope to have signed onto a contract in the coming weeks and etched into a certain piece of hardware this time next year.

  13. Bernard Hopkins Wants to Wear a Flyers Jersey Into the Ring

    May 20, 2011, 12:57 PM EDT

    Alright Bernard Hopkins. You know how to get people saying your name and posting it to their blogs when they otherwise wouldn’t be paying your upcoming fight much attention. First the awful comments about Donovan McNabb (again), and now something we’d otherwise be pretty interested to hear: Hopkins says he’ll wear a Flyers Bobby Clarke…

  14. An Ugly End to a Disappointing Flyers Season: Media Feuds, Surgeries, and Uncertain Futures

    May 10, 2011, 5:51 PM EDT

    First, a quick apology for the lack of Flyers coverage in the wake of the Boston sweep. I’ve been out of town for a wedding and some much-needed vacation time. I love Philly sports as much as the next guy, but there’s great recuperative value even in taking a break from something that’s supposed to…

  15. Flyers-Bruins Game 1: Another Battle Begins

    May 2, 2011, 5:11 PM EDT

    The wait is over, the Flyers and Bruins start their playoff rematch series this afternoon at 3PM in South Philly. Both clubs needed seven games to clear the first round, but that’s not really a bad thing so much as a reflection of how great the opening series were, and how good these two teams…

  16. Boucher Loses His Head (in a Good Way), Flyers Win on Buffalo Ice, Take Series Lead

    Apr 20, 2011, 2:22 PM EDT

    The night began with the Buffalo crowd serenading newly minted Flyers starter Brian Boucher and ended with the Sabres fans quietly filing out while Boosh & Co. celebrated their second straight win to pull ahead in the opening round series. The veteran goalie rewarded his coach for sticking with him after a strong relief performance…

  18. Flyers Notes: Leighton Hurt, Sick Giroux Goal Video, Fans Interview Lappy

    Sep 25, 2010, 9:52 AM EDT

    There's only one loss that matters in the preseason, and that's an injury. Last night, the Flyers edged the Maple Leafs in a shootout, but took an L in the goaltender health department. Michael Leighton had to be pulled before the shootout started due to a back injury, or rather, an aggravation of a previous…

  19. In Homer We Trust… How ’bout You?

    Jun 25, 2010, 2:30 PM EDT

    NHL general managers, scouts, and media are gathering in LA ahead of tonight's entry draft, and so far, there's little in the way of actual news to report. Don't expect that to be the case for long though, and the Flyers will likely be one of the teams most mentioned in discussions. When aren't they?…

  20. Flyers Shut Out Habs, Bring Series Back to Philly up 3-1

    May 22, 2010, 6:41 PM EDT

    Less frequently than we might imagine, the final score of a hockey game says it all. Today's 3-0 Flyers blanking of the Habs is one of those occasions. There was no subplot in which the losing team played better but the winners had the lucky bounces. The Flyers dominated the Habs for the better part…

  21. Flyers Game Day News and Notes: The Skating Wounded and the Relentless Pursuit of Tired Criticisms

    May 18, 2010, 12:17 PM EDT

    No matter which reports you believe, it's good to hear that injured forwards Jeff Carter and Ian Laperriere are increasingly healthy. Most seem to agree that Lappy could return soon, including Paul Holmgren, who yesterday put his timetable ahead of that of Carter. CSN sources today have game 4 as a possible return date. My…

  22. The Leight to Miss 8-10 Weeks, Put the Load Right on Boosh

    Mar 18, 2010, 4:03 PM EDT

    When Michael Leighton had trouble getting off the ice during the loss to the Predators, and the words “high ankle sprain” came across the wireless, the doom and gloom began. We all know how tough that injury can be to come back from, and today the team confirmed that Leighton will be on the shelf…

  23. Gather Ye Shark References While Ye May… Plus: The Significance of Bob Vs. Niitty

    Feb 8, 2010, 5:22 PM EDT

    Because of the current NHL scheduling system, the Flyers don't often play the San Jose Sharks. I've mildly griped about the system before, as it gets a little boring seeing the Islanders countless times and the best of the west only once or so a season. I'm sure it's easier on flights and the like,…

  24. Get Ready to See More of Ilya Kovalchuk (in a Devils Uniform)

    Feb 4, 2010, 11:24 PM EDT

    If you've been tracking the trade rumors involving Ilya Kovalchuk, chances are you know that a few hours ago, a trade was finalized that would send the sniper to New Jersey for a package of Johnny Oduya, Niclas Bergfors, Patrice Cormier, and their 2010 first round pick. Former Devil Anssi Salmela will head to Jersey…

  25. Waitin’ on Leighton: Flyers Forgotten Man Returns to More Questions Than Answers

    Feb 1, 2010, 10:53 AM EDT

    Michael Leighton was the man in the Flyers' net for the historic three-game comeback against Boston, a three-shutout performance against the Canadiens, and yes, the shortcomings of the Stanley Cup Finals. Quite a roller coaster ride over just a few months last season; Leighton was everything from hero to goat. But after the dust settled,…
