Game 17 Preview: Philadelphia Flyers @ Ottawa Senators

Philadelphia Flyers (5-10-1) @ Ottawa Senators (7-6-4), 7:30pm, CSN-Philly Tonight’s meeting with the Senators in Ottawa is an interesting one for several reasons. One reason being the anticipation of Claude Giroux’s first performance after scoring his first goal of the season. We all know about Giroux’s recent goal drought, so we’ll see how he performs tonight after he has the weight of the World lifted off his shoulders. It’s easy to assume he’ll play more confidently, but what does that lead to? Will the ice suddenly become more open for him, as well as his line partners Scott Hartnell and …

Flyers’ Offense Comes to Life Against Edmonton, Leads Team to 4-2 Win Over Oilers

Claude Giroux finally busted out of his 15-game goal drought and the Flyers’ offense came to life against Edmonton, leading them to a 4-2 final against the Oilers on Saturday afternoon. Jay Rosehill, Scott Hartnell, and Vinny Lecavalier also scored for the orange & black, while David Perron and Taylor Hall got the tallies for Edmonton. The afternoon’s matchup pitted the NHL’s worst offensive team against its worst defensive team, which… didn’t sound promising for either side. However, the Flyers, who were held scoreless in their last game (Thursday at New Jersey), opened up the scoring first, with a nice …

Game 16 Preview: Edmonton Oilers @ Philadelphia Flyers

Edmonton Oilers (4-11-2) @ Philadelphia Flyers (4-10-1), 1:00pm, NHL Network/CSN-Philly Well, a meeting between the second-worst and third-worst teams in the NHL took an interesting turn on Friday. After a day filled with several trade rumors between the two clubs, the Edmonton Oilers signed a recently released Philadelphia Flyer that was at least entertaining, if not productive on the ice, as the Western Conference club signed Ilya Bryzgalov. It seemed as though it was only a matter of time before a club reached out to the former Philly goaltending character. Ironically, the team that did so signed Bryzgalov the day …

The Burden

A pox, a pox, I say to thee it is a pox! The curse of Clarkie shall strike whoever shall don that damned C for the Flyers of Philadelphia! If we can lift it. IF! Then, our magical Ginger will return to his scoring ways. But if we can not, than the net shall remain empty. The C’s weight holds him back, and only the C’s weight. Certainly not injuries, or impure wingers. Alas, Claude, alas. We are lost without the true thee. Perhaps the pox can be placed on the shoulders of Vincent the Cavalier. He is indeed a …
