Atlantic Watch: 1/26-2/2

Since the All-Star break spanned from Thursday to Monday, this will indeed be a very brief Atlantic Watch. For the Flyers, the lone game of the week was a rather embarrassing one. After allowing a goal nineteen seconds into the game and another one a minute later, the Flyers found themselves on the wrong side of a 4-0 shutout to their newly found nightmare in the Tampa Bay Lightning. The loss dropped the Flyers to 33-13-5 on the season and 0-3-0 against Tampa on the season. Apparently, the recipe to stream a line of victories against Philly is an aging …

The loss drops the Flyers to 31-12-5 on the year and 3-1-1 against New Jersey this season.  After killing off a holding call …

This game was all Devils early on; it took the Flyers almost half of the period to get their first shot.  The Devils were helped by a four-minute power-play (thanks to Ron Burgundy.  Errr… Scott Hartnell).  This was a quick first period, with few whistles.  Brian Boucher was good early, but he was beaten by Adam Mair (Adam Mair?  Really?) off a Flyers turnover.  Flyers power-play did nothing in the first, and was marked mainly by the …

Flight Plan: Week of 11.21.2010

Flight Plan is a column that will take a more in depth look at the Flyers’ upcoming opponents every week here at Flyers Faithful. All good things must come to an end and so did the Philadelphia Flyers’ run of gaining at least a point in the standings over 10 games in a three-zip loss to the Montreal Canadiens, which was also the first time the Flyers high-powered offense failed to find the back of the net this season. During those 10 games the Flyers went 9-0-1, scored 44 of their 75 goals on the season, and limited their opponents …
