Flyers Plus/Minus: Six in a Row

By, Anthony Maiorana(@Philly_Sauce) It’s a good week to be a Flyers fan. After weak goaltending and defensive breakdowns cost the Flyers games over the opening stretch of the season, the Goaltending has hit a resurgence. The Flyers have finally started to look like the team we expected to get at the beginning of the season […]

Flyers Plus/Minus: Everything goes right in win over Winnipeg

By, Anthony Maiorana(@Philly_Sauce) It wasn’t too long ago that Flyers fans were left feeling empty and frustrated after Flyers games. The goaltending was mystifyingly bad, and the defense couldn’t hold off opposing teams at all. The Flyers constantly wasted performances by the offense that should have won games. A few days ago, the Flyers lost Michal […]

Flyers Plus/Minus: The 5th Back-to-Back

By, Anthony Maiorana(@Philly_Sauce) We’re barely two months into the NHL season and the Flyers just finished off their 5th back-to-back set of games. They’ve had to run the gauntlet early this season and it’s reasonable to think that, maybe, the sheer volume of games has been a bit of a factor in their 7-7-2 record. […]

Flyers Plus/Minus: A Shootout Loss to Detroit

  By, Anthony Maiorana(@Philly_Sauce) It was bound to happen eventually. After two decades of losses in Philadelphia, the Red Wings finally managed a win on the Flyers home ice. They did have to go all the way to a shootout to get it, but they did. After having some success in their new 50th Anniversary jerseys, the […]

Despite brutal loss to Columbus, all is not lost for Flyers

By Mike Santa Barbara (@Mike__SB) The Flyers entered Tuesday night’s match up with the Blue Jackets surging toward a playoff spot, having won three of their last four sitting just a point behind the Red Wings for the East’s final wildcard spot.

Mason stones Rangers in stellar Game 4 return

By David Strehle (@DStrehleTFP) With having played only the final seven minutes of Game 3 during the postseason due to injury, it was tough to tell if Philadelphia Flyers netminder Steve Mason would be up to the challenge in his first start of the series Friday night in Game 4. After all, this was a […]

Mason to return to practice, may start Sunday

By David Strehle (@DStrehleTFP) This isn’t the way that Steve Mason had imagined his first postseason with the Philadelphia Flyers. As his teammates readied themselves for Game 1 of their Metropolitan Division Semifinal against the New York Rangers, the goaltender was relegated to being an observer. “Very frustrating,” he said after skating Friday at Chelsea […]

Steve Mason Inks Extension with Flyers

By: Andrew Dintino (@AndrewD_TOU) Goaltending hasn’t exactly been a forte for the Philadelphia Flyers organization in recent years. After all of his predecessors failed to provide stability in the net, Ilya Bryzgalov was brought in to put an end to this endless plight. That backfired. Bryzgalov and his monstrous contract were bought out this past […]

Berube has decisions to make in goal and on blue line

By David Strehle (@DStrehleTFP) For much of the past few weeks, Craig Berube has had to come up with line combinations due to a run of injuries to his forward ranks. Those maneuverings have actually brought about some new-found chemistry with Michael Raffl on the top line with Claude Giroux and Jake Voracek, and Scott […]

Philadelphia Flyers: Early-season adversity may pay off in long-term

By David Strehle (@DStrehleTFP) Some random thoughts and observations on the Philadelphia Flyers’ 5-2 victory Tuesday night over the Ottawa Senators in regular season game number 20: Sean Couturier, Kimmo Timonen and Adam Hall all snapped extended goalless droughts, but Steve Mason continues to be one of the biggest stories for the Flyers this season.
