Five Reasons I Love The Flyers: Flyers Goal Scored By…

1. Trent Klatt’s Breathe Rite Trent Klatt was without a doubt the best Flyer of all time. Had he not been traded to Vancouver for a conditional pick two games into the 1998-99 season he surely would have topped all of Bobby Clarke’s totals. One category that Clarke could never hope to catch Klatt in was total number of horse faces on your shoulders – 1. And when Klatt-a-tat-tat threw those little useless stickers on his face to stretch out his nostrils it looked like Seabiscuit was bearing down on you on the forecheck. You know how many defensemen in …

Atlantic Watch: 3/17-3/22

For the second straight week the Flyers obtained at least a point in each game they played. Posting a record of 1-0-2 in three games that all went to shootouts, the Flyers have now earned a point in seven straight games going 4-0-3 in that span.

The four points were enough to give Philly the first playoff berth in the Eastern Conference. Danny Briere scored the game-tying goal with only a …

Bad goaltending and a part of the game that can’t be found in the playoffs helped the Flyers fall 5-4 to the Caps tonight. Alexander Semin made Brian Boucher look silly in the final shot of the shootout to give Washington the extra point.

The shootout loss drops the Flyers to 44-19-9 on the season. Despite the Flyers absolutely dominating the first eight minutes of the game, the visiting Capitals gained the first lead of the …

RICE & MICE: Hand fractures

Philadelphia Flyers defenseman, Chris Pronger was originally sidelined with some swelling in his hand after being hit by a puck on February 24, 2011 in a game against the New York Islanders. After x-rays failed to show a fracture, he returned to play after missing one game only to hit that same hand against the boards in a game on March 8, 2011 against the Edmonton Oilers. They are not sure if the break was initially caused by being hit with the puck in February, or if the fracture happened in the game against the Oilers, but a CT scan …
