Recap: Flyers Stay Red-Hot with 8th in a Row

In a Saturday matinee in which the Flyers would look to make it eight straight wins, they would certainly wait to save the best for last. In a game that was tight throughout, things opened up in dramatic fashion in the last ten minutes of the third period in which would then turn into the Brayden Schenn and Jake Voracek show. Steve Mason was solid throughout once again in what was...

Here Are the Flyers’ Stadium Series Jerseys

OK so they look a little bit better than the version we saw yesterday and a lot better than the 50th anniversary embarrassments. I don’t hate them. I could learn to love them. I’ve always like the black jerseys, and still like the original blacks better, but these aren’t bad. Big, bold numbers and colors, though I could use some more accent and piping around the name and...

Red-hot Flyers vie for eighth straight win, host Stars

PHILADELPHIA -- The Philadelphia Flyers may be the hottest team in the NHL with seven straight victories, but they also have one of most porous defenses - allowing 90 goals in their first 29 games. On Saturday afternoon in Philadelphia, the Flyers may meet their match when the defensively deficient Dallas Stars come to town. The Stars have allowed 89 goals in 28 games. While...

Watch The Flyers Score Three Goals in Just Over a Minute

Is there anything better in hockey than when Giroux buries a one-timer from the top of the circle and then turns to the crowd to pump them up? OK, maybe watching yet another superstar turn into a crybaby after playing the Flyers. But Giroux is a close second. Some notes from the Flyers city-leading PR department, even if they now hate us: Michael Raffl scored with 1:29 remaining...

Voracek Check Check It Out!

At this point in the season, we've seen a ton of players bounce back from poor years in 2015-16. There are a couple guys in the forefront and one of them is Jakub Voracek. He went from 81 points to 55 (only 11 goals) in part to a dreadful first 20 games. Well, the people that bet on a return to his previous status are reaping massive dividends in the early going. In the 6-5 win...

Flyers Heritage: Goalies

Embed from Getty Images   By Kevin Durso, Sports Talk Philly editor  In the 1967 Expansion Draft, the first 12 players selected were all goaltenders. The Flyers had the second overall pick and used it on a goaltender from the Boston Bruins, 22-year-old Bernard Marcel Parent. Bernie Parent will join a host of others to tend the Flyers net in being honored on the third...

Hakstol’s Boys Make it Six-In-A-Row

The Philadelphia Flyers defeated the visiting Florida Panthers last night 3-2 in overtime thanks to a game-winning goal by forward Jake Voracek. As the Flyers were nearing the end of November, much was being made for their lackluster defense and inconsistent offense. Six wins in a row have put the Flyers at 15-10-3 on the season which […] Philadelphia Flyers: Hakstol’s Boys...

Mason Joining Elite Company Among Flyers Goalies

(Kate Frese/Sports Talk Philly) By Kevin Durso, Sports Talk Philly editor  Twice on the Flyers six-game winning streak, the best player on the ice was their goaltender. In his five straight wins in five straight starts, Steve Mason has certainly been stellar. Those five wins also have him rapidly closing in on some elite company. With the win on Tuesday, Mason picked up his...

Weekly Fantasy Stud: Giroux

There were a number of big weeks in fantasy hockey last week from players across the NHL, including Chad Johnson, Ryan Kesler and Mike Hoffman. From hat tricks to shutouts, fantasy owners were biting at the bit to get some of these players on their roster. But this week’s fantasy stud comes from the Philadelphia Flyers and while he wears the ‘C’ for Philly, he may not be first...

Flyers Hitting Their Stride

For most of the 2016-17 season, the Philadelphia Flyers have been a Jekyll and Hyde kind of team. Plagued by spotty goaltending and shaky team defense, the Flyers could never muster more than a few wins in a row, mostly trading a win one night for a loss the next. However, over the last couple weeks that shaky defense and spotty goaltending have come around and have contributed to...

Eric Lindros Changed Philadelphia Hockey Forever

I debated for a long time about how to write this piece. As a journalist you never want to include yourself in the article. And ideally, you’d like it to be free of bias (looking at you, Breitbart). After mulling it over, I decided the only fair way to produce this piece was to write it with the same joyful enthusiasm I felt 18 years ago. As a fan of hockey. As a fan of the Philadelphia...

Flyers GM asked Eric Lindros to come out of retirement in 2012

Eric Lindros’ storied career was cut down by injuries, but if former Philadelphia Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren had his way, Lindros wouldn’t have exited the league so soon. After spending nearly a decade and a half in the NHL, Lindros retired in 2006-2007 at the age of 34. The former first overall pick was plagued with concussion injuries, so the early retirement didn’t...

WATCH: Claude Giroux makes Jaroslav Halak look silly in the shootout

Jaroslav Halak is reportedly on the trading block following comments from his agent, but his trade value may have taken a small step back when teams see how badly he was undressed by Claude Giroux in the shootout. At first, it looked like Halak had Giroux figured out, but soon it became clear Halak was completely bested. That’s just a filthy move.

Video: Brayden Schenn leaps into the head of Brendan Smith

Hits to the head are bad. Hits where the guilty player leaps into the victim’s head are even worse. Brayden Schenn was guilty of the latter when the Flyers visited the Red Wings, jumping into the head of Brendan Smith. Was Schenn trying to adjust to play a deflected puck or was he intentionally trying to hit Smith? To Schenn’s credit, there doesn’t seem to be a ton of intent...

Watch: Flyers’ Radko Gudas had one of the best, most unique assists of the year

Radko Gudas could have a pretty decent career as a goalie if his current role as a defenseman for the Philadelphia Flyers doesn’t work out. The Flyers were trailing 4-2 in the second period to the Pittsburgh Penguins and were in the final few seconds of a power play when the Penguins made a final effort to clear their zone. Gudas kept the puck in the attacking zone three separate...

Sam Gagner scores a goal so dirty you’ll need to take a shower afterwards

Yes, it is the preseason. That doesn’t mean that some highlights are already in mid-season form. When you are a human highlight reel like Sam Gagner, the preseason is never an excuse. The man just scores beautiful shootout goals. Last night against the Bruins, he gave us all a goal so nice, you have to view it twice. Pfft. He made it look easy, too! If Gagner’s first two games...

Philadelphia Flyers defenseman Shayne Gostisbehere is pretty lucky to have escaped a serious injury after a skate blade caught him on the face during his team’s matchup against the LA Kings. Gostisbehere, who was one of the most exciting rookies last season, was skating in his defensive zone when Kyle Clifford fell to the ice. Clifford’s skate swung up and caught Gostisbehere...
