Flight Plan: One at Home, Six On The Road

The Philadelphia Flyers ended up with five of a possible eight points last week in two home-and-home sets with new divisional rivals the Washington Capitals and the Columbus Blue Jackets. The Flyers scored a total of 17 goals last week, and scored north of two goals in all four contests. Unfortunately, they also allowed 17 goals, eight of which came in third periods over the course of the week. In games where both teams have a chance to win going into the third period, the best teams find ways to win games in the final frame. That trait has eluded …

Phantoms announce additional season in Glens Falls

Due to the delays in constructing the new Allentown, PA arena, the Phantoms were virtually homeless for the 2013-14 season. That changed today when the Phantoms and the city of Glens Falls made a joint announcement that they have come to an agreement for the Phantoms to play one more season at the Glens Falls Civic Center. Despite the fans being loyal to what ever team is playing in Glens Falls at the time, there was immediate concern that another season of Phantoms hockey would impede the search for another team.

Homer’s Do’s and Doh’s Final: Carter Trade v. Gagne Trade

Paul Holmgren became the interim General Manager of the Philadelphia Flyers on October 22, 2006. That interim title was removed only weeks later on November 11. Holmgren was able to take a team that finished last in the National Hockey League, and rebuild it to make a deep run all the way to the Eastern Conference Finals the very next season.
