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 […]

Mason making early case as long-term solution

  By David Strehle (@DStrehleTFP) The Philadelphia Flyers were in the hunt for a young goaltender at the trade deadline this past April, and it appeared as though Ben Bishop of the Ottawa Senators was their main target.  The team had dealt Sergei Bobrovsky to the Columbus Blue Jackets the previous summer, as the 23-year-old netminder […]

Final Observations: Philadelphia Flyers 2, Florida Panthers 1

O’Connor’s Observations The Flyers’ 5v5 shooting percentage wasn’t going stay below 5.0% forever, and the first period was a classic example of regression. Both Philadelphia goals were fluky, as Brayden Schenn took advantage of a fortuitous bounce off the boards to score his second of the year, and Braydon Coburn added his first of the […]

A “Flyer for life”, Berube tries to get Philly back on track

By David Strehle (@DStrehleTFP) There was a lot of “It’s only preseason” heard during a 1-5-1 exhibition campaign, and it’s fine to have the attitude that “it’s only the first three games of the regular season”. But the Philadelphia Flyers had seen enough after a second straight 0-3-0 start to a season. Paul Holmgren, who […]

Carolina Hurricanes Head-to-Head in New Metropolitan Division: Philadelphia Flyers

By Dylan Howlett (@DylanHowlett) No team in hockey napalms like the Philadelphia Flyers. Trade two elite centers and franchise cornerstones? Sure. Give a free-agent goaltender $51 million and buy him out two years later? Uh-huh. Fire a coach three games into a season? Absolutely. Under the guidance of knee-jerk reactionaries Paul Holmgren and Ed Snider, […]

For the Philadelphia Flyers, Issues Start at the Top with Owner Ed Snider

By Jake Pavorsky (@JakePavorsky) After three regular season games and three losses, one would expect a sports franchise like the Philadelphia Flyers to go on damage control. The players would say the right things, the coach would stand by his system, and most important of all, the team’s owner and general manager would proclaim confidence in their coach […]

Flyers Prospect Report: Week Of September 30th

With the NHL back in action, so too are the several junior and minor hockey leagues in which Philadelphia Flyers prospects play in. 2012 second round draft pick Anthony Stolarz is on a roll with the London Knights, starting in net three times over the course of four days and winning each contest. Against the Owen Sound on October […]

Final Observations: Carolina Hurricanes 2, Philadelphia Flyers 1

O’Connor’s Observations After a poor performance on Saturday night against the Canadiens, the Flyers looked even worse on Sunday against the Hurricanes. It all stems from Philadelphia’s struggles to cleanly exit their own zone. The longer it takes them to exit their own end, the easier it is for the opponent to wear the Flyers’ […]
