Let’s Make a Deal: Harry Z heads to Anaheim

If there’s one thing we can count on as the trade deadline approaches, it’s that Paul Holmgren will more often than not seek out, and consummate, a deal with a favorable Western Conference trading partner. This time, it’s the Anaheim Ducks. The Flyers made the move official on Monday evening, shipping Harry Zolnierczyk to Orange County for Jay Rosehill. Zolnierczyk, who played collegiate hockey at Brown, totaled one assist in seven games for the Flyers this season, along with nine goals and 17 points over 52 games for Adirondack.

Fedotenko scores in overtime, gives Philly improbable two points over Caps

  Ruslan Fedotenko beat Braden Holtby in overtime to give the Philadelphia Flyers a 5-4 win in front of the home crowd tonight. After Kimmo Timonen tied the game with just under 10 seconds left in regulation, the blue liner set up Fedotenko for the game-winning tally in the extra frame to grab the Flyers two points in the standings. With Ilya Bryzgalov pulled, the Orange and Black provided an immense amount of pressure in the final minute before Claude Giroux found Timonen at the point for a slap shot that beat Holtby’s glove to make it 4-4 with a little …
