Rumor Mill: Flyers kicking the tires on Ryan Miller?

One thing the Philadelphia Flyers fan base will never cease to hear about is how we have not had a capable number one goalie in this city for 20 odd years.  Two years ago, with the signing of Ilya Bryzgalov (Bryz), the Flyer front office hoped to solve the riddle between the pipes.  Instead, it has been less than pleasant for Bryzgalov’s tenure in Philadelphia.  With the potential of an amnesty buyout looming for certain Flyers, they will be looking to upgrade every position going into the offseason. According to Eklund of Hockbuzz.com, the Flyers are interested in Buffalo Sabres’ …

Brayden Schenn has yet to play a full season in the National Hockey League, but it’s hard to believe it based on how high expectations are on the young forward to contribute. Starting last season with injuries before finally getting a chance to stick with the club, this lockout-shortened year was his first opportunity to play an NHL season from start to finish.

Future Flyers Report: Brandon Manning joins the Flyers, Leier’s Winterhawks nearly in WHL Finals, Straka and Baie-Comeau almost in QMJHL Finals

After Kent Huskins suffered a concussion from Ryan White’s illegal hit in the Philadelphia Flyers’ 7-3 win over the Montreal Canadiens on Monday, yet another unexpected defenseman made an appearance on the Flyers’ blue line. This time it was Brandon Manning. Manning played in a few games for the Orange and Black last season, as he posted a plus-1 rating in four contests for Philly. He didn’t record a point with the Flyers last season, but the former Chilliwack Bruin played well in his first stretch at the NHL level. A day after Huskins’ injury, Manning appeared in his first …

Brodeur shuts out Flyers to end New Jersey’s 10-game losing streak

The Philadelphia Flyers dropped a 3-0 contest to the New Jersey Devils tonight at the Wells Fargo Center. Ryan Carter, Matt D’Agostini, and Adam Henrique had the goals for Jersey in the win, while Martin Brodeur posted a 23-save shutout to end the Devils’ 10-game losing streak and hand New Jersey their first win in April. Ilya Bryzgalov suffered the loss despite the fact he made five more saves than Brodeur and the puck was in his end of the ice for most of the tilt. The visitors were the better team tonight, as the Devils spent most of the game …
