July 9th, 2018 Two teams made deals for him, but only one could end up with "The Next One". It's been 26 years and about a week since the Quebec Nordiques traded Eric Lindros — a once-in-a-generation player with outstanding offensive prowess, a bone-crunching physical presence, strong skating skills, and...

Philadelphia Flyers

The 2017-18 Philadelphia Flyers season was a roller-coaster ride that ended with their second postseason berth in the last three years. The season was filled with great moments, goals, saves and players' performances. Over the next couple of weeks, THW will take a deep look at each month of action. We will break down what happened in a specific month and what it meant to the season and the future of the franchise. The Playoff Push A slow month of March put the Flyers in the first wild-card spot and only six points ahead of the Florida Panthers as the last month began. They had only four games left to secure their spot in the quest for the Stanley Cup. The first game of the month had an unpromising start after the Flyers blew a 5-3 third period lead to the Boston Bruins, who scored to tie the game with 3.8 seconds to go. Who else but Claude Giroux to the rescue, as he scored his second of the game in overtime to start the month off with a victory. Moment of the Month The...

The 2017-18 Philadelphia Flyers was a roller-coaster ride that ended with their second postseason berth in the last three years. The season was filled with great moments, goals, saves and players' performances. Over the next couple of weeks, THW will take a deep look at each month of action. We will break down what happened in a specific month and what it meant to the season and the future of the franchise. Slow Start to the Month After their out-of-this-world February, it's no surprise that the Flyers came back to Earth at the start of March. They started the second-to-last month of the season with a 0-4-1 record, and those losses dropped them from the top of the Metropolitan Division to the third spot. The Flyers had some crushing losses during this streak. On Mar. 3 against the Tampa Bay Lightning, they held leads of 3-1 and 5-3, but could not hold onto either of them. In fact, Tampa took a 6-5 lead, but a Claude Giroux marker tied the score with 2:53 left in regulation. They...

Flyers Prospects

Over the past few years, all of the talk around the Philadelphia Flyers has been about their slow approach at rebuilding the franchise. The Flyers and rebuild were two words that had never been used in the same sentence over the past 20 years. With past general managers, the mandate was to spend whatever was needed to build a Stanley Cup contender. When general manager Ron Hextall took the helm, he insisted on changing the culture. He took his experience from helping construct the Stanley Cup-winning Los Angeles Kings and began implementing it on the Flyers. Since joining the team, he has yet to make a big splash but has instead been stockpiling draft picks and top prospects. Build Right, Not Fast The prospects that Hextall has drafted are beginning to have an impact throughout the professional rankings. Players such as Nolan Patrick and Oskar Lindblom have proven they belong at the NHL level. Players such as Travis Sanheim and Samuel Morin are on the cusp of being promoted from...

The 2017-18 Philadelphia Flyers season was a roller-coaster ride that ended with their second postseason berth in the last three years. The season was filled with great moments, goals, saves and player performances. Over the next couple of weeks, The Hockey Writers will take a deep look at each month of action. We will break down what happened in a specific month and what it meant to the season and the future of the franchise. That One Loss The first day of the month, the Flyers faced off against their division rival, New Jersey Devils. Coming off two-straight losses, this game started well for the Flyers as they held a 3-2 lead into the second intermission. Alex Lyon, making his first NHL start, stopped 11 of the 13 shots he he had faced to that point. With 9:00 left in the game, a scrum in the Flyers' defensive corner was lost by both Brandon Manning and Radko Gudas, and the puck found Damon Severson, who tied the game. The Flyers still looked like they were going to get a...

Top 3 All-Time Flyers Goalies

While most jokes about the Philadelphia Flyers are aimed at the guys who play between the pipes, the Flyers actually have a rich history of goalies. Unfortunately, for recent teams -- or even the teams of the '90s -- those goalies played, for the most part, in the '70s and '80s. The three best... July 2nd, 2018
