Final Observations: Vancouver Canucks 3, Philadelphia Flyers 2

O’Connor’s Observations In the first period, Philadelphia looked like the same team that carried 5v5 play on Saturday night. They executed clean breakouts, won puck battles and got the better of key matchups. But by the third period, the Flyers had regressed, turning into an apprehensive, overly-cautious squad desperate to hang on to a lead. […]

Flyers Prospect Report: Week of October 6th

With the NHL back in action, so too are the several junior and minor hockey leagues in which Philadelphia Flyers prospects play in. Today, we focus on up and coming defensemen in the Flyers system.

Offensive minutes long overdue for Philadelphia’s Couturier

By Charlie O’Connor (@THG_Charlie) Fresh off his strongest game of the season, Sean Couturier looked to be on the verge of a long-awaited promotion on Friday night. Vincent Lecavalier, the Philadelphia Flyers’ regular second line center, had suffered an undisclosed injury, and Couturier found himself the in-game replacement centering wingers Brayden Schenn and Wayne Simmonds. […]

Flyers Lose Hartnell, Lecavalier For Extended Period

An inauspicious start to the Philadelphia Flyers season has just gotten worse. The Flyers dropped Friday night’s contest versus the Phoenix Coyotes 2-1, and played a majority of the game without both Scott Hartnell and Vincent Lecavalier, as the two forwards exited with injuries. After the game, GM Paul Holmgren announced the two would miss “at least a week”, and after […]

Final Observations: Phoenix Coyotes 2, Philadelphia Flyers 1

O’Connor’s Observations Tonight’s third period was reminiscent of the third period in the season opener against Toronto. Again, the effort was there on the part of the Philadelphia skaters, but it was quickly overwhelmed by frustration. The Flyers’ complete inability to establish a forecheck reared its ugly head yet again as Phoenix tightened up defensively […]
