Game 20 Preview: Ottawa Senators @ Philadelphia Flyers

Ottawa Senators (8-8-4) @ Philadelphia Flyers (7-10-2), 7:00pm, CSN-Philly/SNET-E/TVA With a successful road trip, it’s time for the Philadelphia Flyers to provide a successful homestand to potentially put themselves at the hockey .500. After grabbing five of a possible six points on the road last week, the Orange and Black will start their homestand against the Ottawa Senators, the same team they started their road trip against last week. The road trip didn’t just provide a handful of points for Philly, it provided a lot better play and a sense of confidence among a team that is working their way …

With 14 games under his belt this season, Nick Cousins leads the Phantoms in points with nine.

Their record may not look like much, but six of those seven wins came during a recent six-game winning streak that ended on November 10th after a 3-2 loss to the Bridgeport Sound Tigers. They’ve now lost two since that win streak, but they are showing some serious promise, thanks to contributions all throughout the roster.

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 …

Frequent Flyer Miles: Bryzgalov to train in Sweden, Foster leaves for KHL, O’Donnell joins Kings’ management

As usual, several former members of the Philadelphia Flyers’ organization and draft picks moved this week, as four of the players suited up for the Orange and Black in recent seasons. The group of Ilya Bryzgalov, Kurtis Foster, Sean O’Donnell, and Nikolay Zherdev earned new titles within the last seven days. The most intriguing news since last Wednesday may be Bryzgalov’s move, as he will train with Erik Granqvist, who is a coach for Farjestad in the SHL. The move is said to be for training, despite the fact many think Brzygalov will eventually find a spot on Farjestad’s roster …

Then and Now: Pat Kavanagh

The Philadelphia Flyers used a second-round pick in the 1997 NHL Draft on forward Pat Kavanagh. Other notable players picked in the second round of the 1997 NHL Draft were Ben Clymer, Jeremy Reich, and Henrik Tallinder. A little less than two years later, the Orange and Black dealt Kavanagh to the Vancouver Canucks for a sixth-round pick in the 1999 NHL Draft. Philly used the pick to select forward Konstantin Rudenko, who never played a game in the NHL and is currently with Barys Astana in the KHL. Kavanagh would play with the Syracuse Crunch, Kansas City Blades, and …
