Final Observations: Washington Capitals 7, Philadelphia Flyers 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.

The entire game changed with Nicklas Backstrom’s goal at the […]

Flyers with rare chance to reboot ugly start to season

By David Strehle (@DStrehleTFP) The week-long break that comes to an end tonight could not have come at a better time for the Philadelphia Flyers. Losers of four straight and owners of a 1-7-0 record following last Thursday’s embarrassing 4-1 home defeat at the hands of the Pittsburgh Penguins, Philadelphia was a team in total […]

Final Observations: Pittsburgh Penguins 4, Philadelphia Flyers 1

O’Connor’s Observations The second period was unarguably the Flyers’ worst period of the season. Constantly on their heels in their own end or making futile attempts to gain entry into Pittsburgh’s zone, the second period was not only a microcosm of the season but an amplification of every issue that the Flyers have faced thus […]
