Final Observations: Philadelphia Flyers 4, Buffalo Sabres 1

O’Connor’s Observations Think back to the November 1st game against the Washington Capitals. The Flyers had put together a relatively strong first period and while not dominating, were certainly outplaying the Capitals. But a late first period goal by Nicklas Backstrom sent Philadelphia into a tailspin, and the game eventually ended in an embarrassing 7-0 […]

O’Connor’s Observations It’s easy to forget that the Flyers carried the play in this game through the first three-quarters of the first period.

Instant Analysis: Flyers Reacquire Fire of Steve Downie in Exchange for Max Talbot

By David Strehle (@DStrehleTFP) The Philadelphia Flyers are well known for making the ‘former-Flyer’ tag something that doesn’t always stick with players they’ve sent out of town, and they removed the label from the front of 26-year-old winger Steve Downie’s name on this Halloween day when he was acquired from the Colorado Avalanche in exchange […]
