Five questions: How will the goaltending situation play out in Philadelphia?

Flyers Faithful asked Sarah Baicker from CSN Philly, Anthony SanFilippo from the DelCo Daily Times, Geoff Detweiler from Broad Street Hockey, and our very own Nina G five questions about the ’11 Flyers’ season. We are very grateful that they took the time to share their opinions and predictions with us. Each day of this week, we will run the answers to one of those questions. Today’s question is: How will the goaltending situation play out in Philadelphia? Sarah Baicker: I still think this is the biggest question facing the Flyers this season, even though so many who watch the …

The morning after: Penguins vs. Flyers 10.16.10

“The morning after” is a review of the previous night’s Flyers’ game which, in theory, provides a more objective perspective on the game. I’m suffering a Philadelphia sports hangover this morning. It feels like I went out to have some good clean fun but someone kept handing me shots of Godlschlager all night. The losses by both the Flyers and Phillies sting. Going into last night’s sporting festivities, there was no reason the Flyers should have lost to the Pittsburgh Penguins.

“The morning after” is a review of the previous night’s Flyers’ game which, in theory, provides a more objective perspective on the game. Hey, did you hear that Simon Gagne returned to Philadelphia last night? I bet you didn’t. It sort of flew by under the radar.

Five Reasons I Love the Flyers: frick

frick is a semi-anonymous and slightly autonomous Flyers (and Phillies, but since this is a hockey site, who cares about them?) fanatic who posts on such illustrious and exclusive sites as Twitter and the Official Flyers Message Board.  Likes pina coladas and getting caught in the rain (not really, but it sounds good) and long walks on the beach.  Has been contemplating buying a Wii for a year, but just can’t make the commitment. 1. No Number Ones… But Lots of Number Twos! The Flyers have more number two goalies than your team.  And they made it farther than your …
