COLUMBUS, Ohio — Claude Giroux scored on the Philadelphia’s fifth power play and the Flyers beat the Columbus Blue Jackets 3-2 Wednesday night. Scott Laughton had his first goal after a 13-game absence due to a broken finger, and Tyler Pitlick also scored to help Philadelphia win its second straight and beat Columbus on the road for just the second time in 15 visits. Brian Elliott stopped 27 shots. Nick Foligno and Seth Jones scored for Columbus, which lost for the second time in three games. Joonas Korpisalo had 20 saves. Philadelphia was shut down on its first four power plays before Sony Milano’s interference penalty gave the Flyers another chance with 4:45 left in the second. Giroux made the most of this one, taking a pass from Ivan Provorov, and skating in fast from the blue line to beat Korpisalo through the five-hole 1:20 later. It was Giroux’s eighth of the season and third on a power play, and gave Provorov a team-high 10 power-play points (four goals, six...

The Shayne Gostisbehere of the 2019-20 season is a ghost of the player the Philadelphia Flyers have come to know. He sits at just 6 points in 22 contests with the orange and black this season and has not performed well in the defensive zone. You can contribute this to a new head coach, or a new system, but “Ghost” is certainly not performing like the defenseman who scored 65 points in the 2017-18 season. Related: Vigneault Likes His Lineup Changes Flyers' head coach Alain Vigneault has no qualms benching players who are not performing to his expectations and Ghost is now set to sit in two straight games. Is this just a slump or is there a larger, underlying confidence issue? The bigger question, however, is does he need a change of scenery, and will the Flyers give it to him? https://twitter.com/billmeltzer/status/1199003183533756416 Just a Slump? As you can see Vigneault still has a lot of confidence in Gostisbehere and believes that his slump will soon...

Vancouver Canucks

PHILADELPHIA — Jakub Voracek scored midway through the third period to lift the Philadelphia Flyers over the Vancouver Canucks 2-1 Monday night. Voracek one-timed Justin Braun’s pass off the right post and behind goalie Thatcher Demko. Voracek’s sixth of the season and second in two games snapped a 1-1 tie. Sean Couturier scored his seventh goal for Philadelphia, and Carter Hart stopped 16 shots. J.T. Miller put Vancouver ahead with his 10th goal midway through the first period, but Demko couldn’t make it stand. He made 32 saves. Vancouver Canucks center J.T. Miller (Sergei Belski-USA TODAY Sports) Miller took advantage of a turnover deep in the Flyers zone by whipping a wrist shot that beat Hart to the stick side. The Flyers countered 5:54 into the second when Voracek corralled a loose puck in Vancouver’s zone and sent it over to Couturier. Vancouver didn’t get many scoring chances in the final two periods, but Hart made a pad save on Josh Leivo with...

Flyers History

Hide your women, children, and favorite hockey team.  Call up Batman, Superman, and the rest of the Justice League because when the Legion of Doom rolls through town, there is little anyone can do to stop them. Such was the reputation of one of the most feared and productive lines in the history of the NHL -- the Legion of Doom. With John LeClair on the left wing, Eric Lindros at center, and Mikael Renberg on right wing, the group became known for their ferocious forechecking and the skill/power combination of each man. The Origin of the Legion of Doom The line was formed during the lockout-shortened 1994/95 season after the February 9th trade that sent 100-point winger Mark Recchi to Montreal in exchange for LeClair, Eric Dejardins, and Gilbert Dionne. The team desperately needed the boost on the blueline while LeClair and Dionne were somewhat unknown commodities. Just two days later, the line would notch its first point in a 3-1 victory over New...
