Hockey Hilarity: That was Quick… And Easy

Friday funnies brought to you straight from hockey’s own players, media personnel, and broadcast botches. We’ll be mucking it up every week right here, examining puck ups, puns, tweets, and more! I think all of us can agree that Jonathan Quick of the Los Angeles Kings is a pretty good goaltender, maybe even one of the best ever when he’s on like he was in the 2011-2012 season where he won both the Conn Smythe award as the most valuable player to his team in the playoffs and a Stanley Cup.

Five Questions 2013 Preseason: Who Will Fill The Gap at Third-Line Left Wing?

Flyers Faithful is pleased to have Dave Isaac from the Courier-Post, Matt Brigidi from SB Nation, David Strehle from The Fourth Period, Anthony Mingioni from Center Ice Philly, and our very own Steve Jacot participate in the current iteration of Five Questions. This is the first of a five-part series focusing on the 2013-2014 preseason. (Please keep in mind that these questions were answered last week, so some of our questions may already have been resolved by the team.) With the news that Dan Cleary will not be joining the Flyers, how should they handle the gap at third-line left …

Training Camp Sprints: Lecavalier, Couturier, Talbot, & Morin

It’s a new season for the Flyers, so naturally that means there is an interesting mix of new and familiar faces throughout the lineup looking to make an impact and land a spot on the team.  The new guys are out to show the coaches what they can do. The old guys are out to show the coaches they’re still capable. And the young guys are out to show the coaches what they can do if given the opportunity. So how have they fared so far? With the absence of Claude Giroux from the lineup, the presence of Vinny Lecavalier …
