  1. Fixed Price Menu: JVR, Flyers Finally Light the Lamp vs. Habs in Comeback Win

    Jan 22, 2010, 8:59 PM EDT

    There was a lot of room for improvement for the Flyers after the first 20 minutes of play tonight, and man if they didn’t make up every inch of it over the next 40. They ended their goal-less streak against Carey Price this season, stayed hungry once they broke through, and a young gun finally…

  2. Pelle Lindbergh Remembered 25 Years Later

    Jan 11, 2010, 3:38 PM EDT

    It was 25 years ago today that Flyers goalie Pelle Lindbergh died from the injuries he suffered in a brutal car crash while driving his custom-built red Porsche home after a night out celebrating a win over the Boston Bruins. Most of us were just learning what sports were in 1985, so our memories of…

  3. Video: Ray Emery Meets Joe Frazier

    Sep 15, 2009, 12:30 PM EDT

    As we wrote about previously, Flyers new goalie Ray Emery is a big boxing fan and had the images of Philly boxing legends Joe Frazier, Bernard Hopkins, and Rocky Balboa painted on his new Flyers mask. In a fun twist, Joe Frazier visited with Emery yesterday and the netminder gave Smokin' Joe his very own…

  4. Panotch: Flyers Ready to Sign Ray Emery

    Jun 3, 2009, 1:53 PM EDT

    It'd been speculated and discussed since the quick end to the Flyers postseason… Flyers GM Paul Holmgren had an interest in possibly acquiring banished goalie Ray Emery, who was playing in Russia after being unable to catch on in the NHL. Now, it appears Holmgren has put the pieces in place to do just that. …

  5. Wait… Ray Emery?

    May 5, 2009, 1:48 PM EDT

    I think we're all appropriately skeptical of the news that the Flyers have contacted the agent for exiled goalie Ray Emery, who played the last season in Russia's KHL after failing to catch on in the NHL upon being waived from Ottawa. Why were NHL teams unwilling to take a chance on him last season?…

  6. Flyers to Start Leighton in Winter Classic, Follow Conklin’s Example

    Mar 3, 2009, 4:19 PM EDT

    It's hard to bench a hot goalie, and damn near impossible not to go with one coming off a shutout. Michael Leighton may not be standing on his head so far in his Flyers career, but he's been pretty good, and you can't argue with results. Since the former waivee first saw ice time with…

  7. Flyers in Carolina: Lavvy & Leighton’s Revenge?

    Feb 26, 2009, 6:48 PM EDT

    Less than two seasons after leading the Carolina Hurricanes to a Stanley Cup win that still bothers me (ugh: Carolina, Anaheim, and Tampa Bay have each won more recently than the Flyers…), Peter Laviolette was canned by the team after missing the playoffs in two straight seasons. Now, he's trying to resurrect his coaching career…

  8. Leigh’d Back: Flyers Strike First, Finish Big

    Feb 23, 2009, 10:24 PM EDT

    Fie-nah-lee. The Flyers have shaken off their four-game losing streak, winning a sloppy game on warm ice in south Florida, 5-2. They were able to nail down two out of three of everyone's generic keys to the game: scoring first and finishing strong. The third key, playing all 60 minutes, continues to elude them, and…

  9. Today in Philly Sports History: Lindbergh Pronounced Dead, 1985

    Jan 11, 2009, 9:00 AM EDT

    Goalie Pelle Lindbergh was coming off something of a dream season in 1985, as he became the first European goaltender to win the Vezina trophy, and led the Flyers all the way to the Stanley Cup finals, where they fell to the Edmonton Oilers. Lindbergh was only in his third season as a Flyer, and…

  10. Afternoon Extras: Donaghy’s Lawyers, Flash’s Travels, a Flyers Eulogy, Trouble for RedLasso, and more…

    May 21, 2008, 1:33 PM EDT

    With our sporting focus now primarily on the Phils, it was good to see them win one last night to halt the skid mark before it stained. Outside of the Phillies, there are plenty of great stories to aid in your Wednesday blowing off of responsibilities. As if you needed the help.  Bill Bender reports…
