  1. Push to the playoffs: Where things stand with the Flyers’ offense

    Feb 24, 2014, 3:56 PM EDT

    giroux-voracek

    *Leading up to the Flyers’ return to the ice from the Olympic break on Thursday night and the official start of their playoff push, we’re going to break down different parts of the team and where they stand with 23 games left in the regular season. Today’s focus: the forwards, offense and power play. *…

  2. Rob Zombie’s Broad Street Bullies film on hold

    Feb 24, 2014, 2:35 PM EDT

    zombie

    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…

  3. Simon Gagne: Philadelphia ‘still the best place for a hockey player’

    Feb 24, 2014, 11:18 AM EDT

    gagne

    What’s Simon Gagne up to these days? Hoping, waiting for one more chance to play in the NHL. Frank Seravalli caught up with the former Philadelphia Flyers All Star over the Olympic break for Monday’s edition of the Daily News. Last we heard from Gagne, he was spurned by the orange and black in contract…

  4. Video: Adirondack Phantoms destroy Portland Pirates during line brawl

    Feb 17, 2014, 11:26 AM EDT

    phantoms-brawl

    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…

  5. Ed Snider defends Flyers’ front-office strategies: ‘I always want to win’

    Feb 14, 2014, 1:45 PM EDT

    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…

  6. Richards and Carter trades boiled down to cold, hard numbers

    Would you have guessed that Voracek and Simmonds would have significantly more points than Richards and Carter? pic.twitter.com/vJuyxTzlNe — Frank Seravalli (@DNFlyers) February 1, 2014 Believe it or not, Saturday marks the first time the Philadelphia Flyers go head-to-head versus Mike Richards and Jeff Carter at the same time, a tilt nearly two years in…

  7. The Flyers have returned to their October ways

    Jan 28, 2014, 4:32 PM EDT

    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…

  8. Role reversal: Flyer unravel in third and blow late lead in shootout loss to Islanders

    Jan 20, 2014, 9:25 PM EDT

    Simmer

    The theme of the Philadelphia Flyers’ recent play has gone like this: fall behind early, comeback in the third period to win or send into overtime or maybe a shootout for at least a point. Monday afternoon on Long Island, the Flyers’ fortunes were reversed, but not in a good way, and they left Long…

  9. Best of all, Steve Mason’s new contract gives Flyers flexibility

    Jan 20, 2014, 1:31 PM EDT

    Steve Mason

    By all accounts, everybody was a winner over the weekend when the Philadelphia Flyers and Steve Mason agreed to a three-year contract extension worth $12.3 million. The orange and black can finally put the goaltender carousel in storage for awhile—at least we hope so—while Mason earns top-20 netminder money with a chance to cash in…

  10. Luke Schenn tosses Dan Carcillo like a rag doll and more video and images from a chippy Flyers loss in NY

    Jan 13, 2014, 9:31 AM EDT

    Daniel Carcillo, Luke Schenn

    The New York Rangers may have won their battle against the Philadelphia Flyers at Madison Square Garden on Sunday night, but as is usually the case in this storied rivalry, it just set the tone for the next meeting. The Rags jumped all over the Flyers, potting three goals in the game’s opening 10 minutes,…

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

    Jan 7, 2014, 3:45 PM EDT

    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…

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

    Jan 5, 2014, 9:10 PM EDT

    flyers.hartnell

    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…

  13. The Flyers might actually be decent

    Jan 3, 2014, 3:49 PM EDT

    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…

  14. 5 reasons Philly sports fans should be excited for 2014

    Jan 1, 2014, 3:52 PM EDT

    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…

  15. 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…

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

    Dec 29, 2013, 12:16 PM EDT

    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…

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

    Dec 28, 2013, 4:39 PM EDT

    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…

  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…

  20. 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…

  21. Video: Flyers help a returning soldier shock his parents with the coolest return home ever

    Dec 13, 2013, 4:30 PM EDT

    windish-fam

    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…

  22. Scott Hartnell’s children’s book ‘Hartnelldown’ is now on sale

    Dec 13, 2013, 12:48 PM EDT

    hartnelldown-book

    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…

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

    Dec 13, 2013, 9:00 AM EDT

    mason-gianta

    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…

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

    Dec 12, 2013, 2:05 PM EDT

    briere

    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…

  25. 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…
