You can laugh at the Flyers' recent futility in the shootout all you want. But that wretched 10-game shootout drought is finally over, thanks in large part to Steve Mason's masterful 41-save performance against the Ottawa Senators on Tuesday night. Philly's shootout glory was capped off by Wayne Simmonds' fifth-round goal, snapping a five-game...

Signed as an insurance policy in the offseason, Nick Schultz was thrust into duty after just one game this season, and he’s been a mainstay ever since. So it's logical that the Flyers want to extend the 32-year-old blueliner, something Frank Seravalli reported over the weekend. Talks set to get underway soon btwn #Flyers and Nick Schultz for...

The top line for the Carolina Hurricanes in their Friday night tilt against the Philadelphia Flyers was Staal X two plus a Swedish beast. Captain Eric Staal, alternate captain Jordan Staal, and Elias Lindholm. The outcome of the game was a true marvel, as the Hurricanes scored more than one goal and won the contest 2-1. What was not a marvel was...

With everything considered, Friday night's 2-1 loss to the Carolina Hurricanes isn't so bad. Don't get me wrong, it's an embarrassing defeat. But we're becoming use to that sort of thing. What isn't domestic to us, however, is a Flyers team without Claude Giroux. The captain's third period injury put the impending loss to Carolina in perspective....

If there's anyone happier to see 2015 than myself, it's the Philadelphia Flyers. It's been a bumpy ride for the orange and black, riddled with sluggish starts, an early playoff exit, and a stagnant offseason. But instead of rehashing all the negative, let's ring in the new year with positive thinking. What better way to do that than looking back...

We've seen this song and dance before. No, not the one step forward, two steps back part - although we've witnessed that in bunches as well. Monday's 4-2 loss to Arizona was yet another disappointing outcome. One that would see a late third period surge from the orange and black. But at the end of the night, the Coyotes outlast the Flyers behind a...

So they meet again. Peter Laviolette will finally face the team that fired him after three games last year when the Flyers visit Nashville on Saturday night. A lot has changed for both parties since October of 2013, making the "Flyers against Laviolette" storyline an intriguing one. Were the Flyers right in firing Lavy? Will Laviolette's early...
