Philadelphia Flyers

During the Philadelphia Flyers' first round-robin game with the Boston Bruins, it looks as though a key bottom-six forward is going to miss some time. After a nasty, legs-first fall into the boards late in the third period, Michael Raffl was helped off the ice with what seemed to be an injured left leg. Although he couldn't provide any specifics on the type of injury or the extent of his absence, head coach Alain Vigneault confirmed with the media that Raffl won't be in the lineup moving forward. Whatever the injury is, it's certainly a tough break for Raffl, who played a fantastic game against the Bruins. Luckily, the Flyers won't have to look long or far for Raffl's replacement. Twenty-year-old rookie forward Joel Farabee is set to make his postseason debut in the Flyers' round-robin tilt with the Washington Capitals on Thursday. Farabee's Time To Shine Since making his debut back in October of the...

Philadelphia Flyers

In the first meaningful game since the middle of March, the Philadelphia Flyers continued where they left off on their hot streak. They defeated the Boston Bruins 4-1 in the first match of their three-game round-robin tournament to determine seeding for the rest of the postseason. The Flyers' tallies were by Michael Raffl, Nate Thompson, Philippe Myers, and Scott Laughton. Many Flyers had an impressive game, but two guys stood out that helped the Orange and Black skate away victorious: Michael Raffl The fourth line as a whole stepped up to the plate against Boston, but winger Michael Raffl specifically stole the limelight in this contest. He has been a part of the Flyers organization since first debuting in the 2013-14 season for the club. He came into the league as an undrafted free agent. Philadelphia landed him despite Raffl being sought after by other franchises. Related: Flyers' All-Decade Team Raffl...

Flyers History

Aug. 3 is an interesting date in National Hockey League history. One of the teams in the league’s first wave of expansion officially announced its name. Also, the first U.S.-born player to skate in the league and a future Hall of Famer are among today’s birthday boys. A New Name in Philadelphia On Aug. 3, 1966, the expansion franchise in Philadelphia, one of six teams preparing to debut in 1967, officially revealed the Flyers name. Owner Ed Snider wanted to have an original and fresh name for his new team. He did not want to use “Quakers” or “Ramblers,” which had been names of past hockey teams in the city. It was Snider’s sister, Phyllis, who suggested the name Flyers and he instantly falls in love with it. The problem was, the team was holding a contest for the fans to name the team. Snider instructed those running the promotion to select the winner from those who suggested the name...

Philadelphia Flyers

The Philadelphia Flyers are heading into the Stanley Cup Playoff tournament with a starting goalie who's never appeared in a playoff game. Their scoring leader in 2019-20 and their top defenseman have 12 playoff appearances combined, all from facing the Pittsburgh Penguins in 2018. Ivan Provorov, Philadelphia Flyers (Amy Irvin / The Hockey Writers) Carter Hart, Travis Konecny and Ivan Provorov have emerged as cornerstone players for the orange and black. If the Flyers are to make a deep playoff run, they need this 22-and-under trio to thrive under pressure. They certainly thrived during the regular season. Hart posted a 2.42 goals against average (GAA) and a .914 save percentage (SV%) in 2019-20 in 43 appearances. Provorov led the club by far in average ice time, at just under 25 minutes a night. Of his 36 points, 16 were on the power play. And Konecny enjoyed a breakout season, leading the team with 61 points in 66 games. That's no small feat on a club boasting the likes of...
