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.

Following #28's Lead. It's a trait that Claude Giroux has seemed to have for awhile now. It's hard for any Flyers fan to forget the 2011-2012 Philadelphia Flyers season. Just one summer after making it to the Stanley Cup Finals, the Flyers made the gutsy decision to ship away Mike Richards and Jeff Carter for a myriad of younger talent....

Rob Zepp waited a long time for this one. After 13 years of toiling through various affiliated and European leagues, the 33-year-old netminder finally made his NHL debut. And since it's the Christmas season, you had to know the story didn't end there. After erasing a two-goal deficit in the third period, an overtime goal from Jakub Voracek gives...
