The difference between being tied at two and being down three games to one is a vast gap. The Philadelphia Flyers and Pittsburgh Penguins face-off in...

Flyers Prospects

No one has scored more goals in the AHL than Greg Carey with 84 in the last three seasons. The next-closest competition is Grand Rapids Griffins forward and Philadelphia native Eric Tangradi, who has 74 goals. His 30 goals this season are the most in Lehigh Valley Phantoms history since relocating to the area four seasons ago. He is also the first to score 30-plus goals in the franchise’s history since Jon Matsumoto (30) did it back in 2009-10 for the Adirondack Phantoms. So, what does the 27-year-old Carey think makes a good goal scorer? He had the answer to that in a recent interview with The Hockey Writers. "I think a lot of goal scorers just have a knack for being at the right place, at the right time," said Carey. "I think they kind of have a tendency to go to the areas where they’re most successful and a lot of times that's just going to the net with your stick down. A lot of good goal scorers—I feel they can score the pretty ones, but they get just as many other...

Flyers Goaltending

Behind every great hockey team is a solid, consistent goaltender. Lack of a strong backstop is one of the main reasons why the Philadelphia Flyers haven’t brought home a Stanley Cup since the 1974-75 season. If you ask any Flyers fan about goaltending, they’re more than likely going to cringe. Over the past 10 years, general managers Bobby Clarke, Paul Holmgren and Ron Hextall have built great offensive and defensive teams, but the one downfall has always been goaltending. There have been experiments with once-great goalies, such as Ilya Bryzgalov, as well as with goalies that needed a change of scenery such as Steve Mason and Petr Mrazek, but nothing has panned out. Being a master of the trade, Hextall immediately noticed the weakness and began stockpiling a strong group of highly-touted prospect goaltenders. The Flyers goaltending prospect pool is highlighted by Carter Hart, but one name that is often overlooked is Felix Sandström. The Flyers officially signed 2015...
