  1. Andrew MacDonald’s contract pays him in the top how many NHL players?

    Apr 15, 2014, 4:38 PM EDT

    Blackhawks Flyers Hockey

    With the ink still drying on the new deal signed on Tuesday, Andrew MacDonald is currently scheduled to be paid as one of the top 100 players in the NHL next season. Let that sink in for a moment. You don’t have to be a hockey salary cap expert to figure out why MacDonald’s six-year,…

  2. Philadelphia Flyers-New York Rangers 2014 Stanley Cup Playoff Round 1 Schedule

    Apr 13, 2014, 11:00 PM EDT

    Wayne Simmonds, Daniel Carcillo

    The Philadelphia Flyers’ postseason destiny was sealed over the (gorgeous) weekend. A feisty 4-3 overtime victory over the Pittsburgh Penguins on Saturday meant the orange and black clinched third place in the Metropolitan Division and, as you likely have heard, the right to meet the New York Rangers in the first round of the Stanley…

  3. Flyers looking to clinch essentially-clinched playoff spot in Florida

    flyers.lecavalier

    If the Philadelphia Flyers pick up two points against the sad-sack Florida Panthers on Tuesday night, the orange and black officially clinch a spot in the Stanley Cup Playoffs. Anything can happen after the puck drops, but not exactly the unlikeliest of scenarios versus the second-worst team in the NHL. Of course, should the Panthers…

  4. 3 Stars: Concern mounts as Bruins sweep season series with Flyers

    The Philadelphia Flyers’ 5-2 loss to the Boston Bruins at the TD Bank Garden on Saturday from the perspective of three players.   3. Jay Rosehill Jay Rosehill makes what I anticipate could be his only lifetime appearance in our 3 Stars recaps. No. 1, he did a very Rosehill thing, tagging Bruins forward Shawn…

  5. Tonight’s game in New York against rival Rangers a must-win for Flyers

    carcillo.rinaldo.flyers.rangers

    Don’t touch the Philadelphia Flyers, because they’ve been on fire. It’s no secret around town and, more importantly, around the NHL how well the Flyers have been playing in recent weeks. As a matter of fact, to say they are playing well could be an understatement. Since March 1, the Flyers have posted an impressive…

  6. 3 Stars: Flyers keep up torrid pace with win over Stars

    Mar 21, 2014, 7:11 AM EDT

    Wayne Simmonds, Ryan Garbutt

    The Philadelphia Flyers’ 4-2 victory over the Dallas Stars at the Wells Fargo Center on Thursday from the perspective of three(-ish) players. Steve Mason Yet another solid effort from Mason, stopping 33 of 35 Dallas shots to earn his 29th win of the season. The Philly netminder may not rank among the best as far…

  7. 3 Stars: Flyers dispatch of shorthanded Pens in part 1 of home-and-home

    Mar 15, 2014, 4:19 PM EDT

    Matt Read, Marc-Andre Fleury

    The Philadelphia Flyers’ 4-0 win over the Pittsburgh Penguins at the Wells Fargo Center on Saturday from the perspective of three players. 3. Claude Giroux You almost have to feel a little bit bad for the Penguins… almost. Already leading the NHL in man games lost to injury, Pittsburgh was forced to scratch All-Star forwards…

  8. 3 Stars: Ref disallows late goal in Flyers’ 2-1 loss to Devils—right call?

    Mar 12, 2014, 7:00 AM EDT

    Mark Streit, Steve Mason, Jaromir Jagr

    The Philadelphia Flyers’ 2-1 loss to the New Jersey Devils at the Wells Fargo Center on Tuesday from the perspective of three players, er… people. 3. Tom Kowal That name might not be familiar to many Flyers or even hockey fans. The only reason I know it now is because he might’ve cost the home…

  9. Flyers essentially swap Andrej Meszaros for Andrew MacDonald at NHL trade deadline

    Mar 5, 2014, 3:57 PM EDT

    meszaros

    You knew there had to be another move on the way after the Philadelphia Flyers traded second- and third-round picks to the New York Islanders for Andrew MacDonald on Tuesday. That would’ve left the club with nine defensemen, three more than suit up for a game. Sure enough, the other shoe dropped on Wednesday. As…

  10. Dmitry Orlov suspended 2 games for hit on Brayden Schenn

    Mar 3, 2014, 4:19 PM EDT

    orlov-hit

    It was hard to watch Washington Capitals defenseman Dmitry Orlov’s hit from behind on Philadelphia Flyers forward Brayden Schenn on Sunday and surmise it was anything less than dirty. The NHL agreed. CSNPhilly.com’s Sarah Baicker reports the league has slapped Orlov with a two-game ban for the cheap shot. If that seems light, Baicker notes…

    The Philadelphia Flyers’ 5-4 overtime victory over the Washington Capitals at the Verizon Center on Sunday as told from the perspective of three players. 3. Vincent Lecavalier The 33-year-old has been something of a disappointment in the first of a five-year deal he signed with the Flyers over the summer, but he came up big…

  12. 3 Stars: Flyers back on track with matinee win over rival Rangers

    Mar 1, 2014, 4:41 PM EDT

    Wayne Simmonds, J.T. Miller

    The Philadelphia Flyers’ 4-2 victory over the New York Rangers at the Wells Fargo on Saturday as told from the perspective of three players. 3. Brayden Schenn The only thing B. Schenn didn’t do in this contest is score a goal, and that’s only because Rangers defenseman Anton Stralman did the honors for him. Schenn…

Raffi Torres The journeyman winger had not appeared in an NHL regular season or playoff game since May 14, 2013, which means it was probably a bad omen when he scored…

  18. Holmgren downplays possibility of ‘major’ Flyers trade at deadline

    5-paul-holmgren-AP

    The Philadelphia Flyers’ push for the playoffs begins in earnest on Thursday with the first of 24 remaining games to solidify their postseason positioning. They only have three games left before the March 5 trade deadline though, which means the team must act fast if it intends to add reinforcements. But if Paul Holmgren’s recent…

    Sad update over the weekend in the local sports movie industry. It seems musician and screenwriter/director Rob Zombie is shelving his much anticipated feature-length film based on the Broad Street Bullies in favor of another project. The story on Zombie shifting gears originates from an interview with 3news in New Zealand, where he explains another…

    I’m not sure what Connor Murphy said or did to provoke this fight, but whatever it was sent three Adirondack Phantoms in a mad dash to jump the Portland Pirates’ defenseman. Next thing you know, a full line brawl breaks out on the ice. Portland may have won the game 2-0, but the Phantoms won…

    Ed Snider

    The past few years have seen the championship-starved Philadelphia Flyers fanbase grow increasingly critical of chairman Ed Snider over the team’s inability to bring home the Stanley Cup. The orange and black are among the most active franchises in the NHL when it comes to signing free agents and making trades, perhaps to the club’s…

    Steve Mason, Braydon Coburn, Matt Calvert

    Remember last month when the Philadelphia Flyers had won 10 of 13 games overall, a 10-game home winning streak, an impressive 5-1 Western road trip and had played their way back into playoff contention? Good times, right? Well, I hope you remember those good times since they are now ancient history because the Flyers have…
