Chara Scores Twice, Flyers Lose 5-1

Hopefully the Flyers can reenact the second portion of their 2010 playoffs after dropping Game 3 tonight by a 5-1 count. They are now one game from elimination. Zdeno Chara had two goals and David Krejci added three points while Tim Thomas made 37 saves as Boston has now out scored Philly 15-6 in the series. Andrej Meszaros had the only Flyers’ goal on the night, but it meant very little as the Bruins already enjoyed a 4-0 lead. Last game it was James van Riemsdyk, this game it was Chara. Just over 30 seconds into the game, Chara walked into a …

Thomas Saves 52 In Bruins 3-2 OT Win

Flight Plan 11.28.2010

Flight Plan is a column that takes a more in depth look at the Flyers’ upcoming opponents every week here at Flyers Faithful. After two solid performances to start the week, wins over the Montreal Canadiens and the Minnesota Wild, the Philadelphia Flyers lost two games in the shootout. These two entirely emotionless losses brought them down a peg in the standings in the Eastern Conference and the entire NHL as the Washington Capitals now have sole ownership of the best record and most points in the league.
