Final Observations: San Jose Sharks 7, Philadelphia Flyers 3

Final Observations: San Jose Sharks 7, Philadelphia Flyers 3

  O’Connor’s Observations In many ways, this looked like the Flyers team from early in the season. A solid start, followed by one mistake quickly turning into three mistakes, and one goal turning into five.  It’s easy to compare this game to the November 1st game against the Capitals, easily the season’s low point. But […]

Final Observations: Columbus Blue Jackets 5, Philadelphia Flyers 2

O’Connor’s Observations An optimist watching tonight’s game would likely say that the Flyers were finishing an unexpected back-to-back set of games, and were facing maybe the hottest team in the NHL. As a result, this game can be disregarded as a standalone bad performance. A pessimist, on the other hand, would make the point that […]

Final Observations: Philadelphia Flyers 5, Washington Capitals 2

Final Observations: Philadelphia Flyers 5, Washington Capitals 2

O’Connor’s Observations Aside from a ten minute-long collapse on Sunday, the Flyers consistently outshot and outplayed the Washington Capitals during back-to-back games this week. While Washington is currently second in the Metropolitian Division, their record is substantially inflated by strong overtime and shootout performances. It is very possible that Washington falls back into the playoff […]

Final Observations: Philadelphia Flyers 2, Montreal Canadiens 1

Final Observations: Philadelphia Flyers 2, Montreal Canadiens 1

O’Connor’s Observations For maybe the first time this season, the Philadelphia Flyers turned in a full sixty minute effort. The Flyers were not outshot in any period, dominated in the puck possession metrics, and did not even appear tired late despite playing in the second game of a back-to-back. Michael Raffl was moved to the […]

Final Observations: Dallas Stars 5, Philadelphia Flyers 1

Final Observations: Dallas Stars 5, Philadelphia Flyers 1

O’Connor’s Observations After the Flyers were able to kill a seven-minute Dallas power play caused by a fit of temporary insanity from Zac Rinaldo, it appeared that Philadelphia had dodged a major bullet. The Flyers carried the play through the rest of the first period, and Andrej Meszaros was even able to give Philadelphia the […]
