Five Questions: We’ve heard already who should be the starter in the playoffs. Who shouldn’t be the starter and why?

Flyers Faithful asked Travis Hughes from SB Nation and Broad Street Hockey, Matt P. From The 700 Level, Mark Trible from The Checking Line and our very own Pavialax five questions about the playoffs. We are very grateful that they took the time to share their opinions and predictions with us. Each day of this week, we will run the answers to one of those questions. Today’s question is: We’ve heard already who should be the starter in the playoffs. Who shouldn’t be the starter and why? Travis Hughes: Interesting twist. I think Brian Boucher should ride the pine to …

Elias Nets Hat-Trick, Flyers Lose Second Straight

For the second straight night, the Flyers were handed a loss by a team currently not in the playoff picture as the Devils won 4-2 in Jersey. He may have not scored the game-winning goal, but Patrik Elias essentially won the game for the Devils netting a hat-trick.

With the Penguins and Capitals idle tonight, the Flyers had a chance to move closer to clinching both the division and …

Or at least someone he knows who speaks English pointed it out to him (yeah, I’m harping on the language barrier again. Sue me.) Because, since I stated last Friday that Bobrovsky doesn’t seem to want to take the reigns as playoff starting goaltender, he’s started to play like one. Including the Pittsburgh game at the Wells Fargo Center this past Thursday, Bobrovsky has allowed a grand total of 5 goals in his last 4 starts (that’s 1.25 goals per game, for …

Mason Blanks Flyers, Thrashers Win 1-0

Chris Mason had his game of the year tonight as he stoned the conference leading Flyers for 43 saves in the Thrashers’ 1-0 win. With his only help coming from an Evander Kane bank shot off of Nik Antropov’s skate halfway through the third period, Mason made 19 saves in the third period to shut the Flyers out for the first time since their embarrassing 7-0 loss against the Rangers. The Thrashers’ third win on the year against the Flyers was their first win in regulation and drops the Flyers’ record to 46-21-10. Evidently charged from Tuesday night’s win in …
