Very Superstitious

I am not watching the game (Penguins vs Flyers 12/8/11) right now for several reasons. One: It’s on NHL Network and that means it’s blacked out on GameCenter Live. I don’t have cable. I hate streams too, which is lame, I know, but they bug me. Two: I have work to do and Finals are next week, so my regular busyness has been ramped up. Three: I, for a variety of reasons, have been unable to watch the last three games previous and the Flyers have won all three. I am not about to kill that streak. Yeah, I’m superstitious. …

Hartnell Gets Game-Winner, Flyers Edge Pens, 3-2

The Pittsburgh Penguins dominated the last ten minutes of the game, but Jaromir Jagr and Max Talbot got the last laugh against their former team as the Flyers produced enough offense in the first two periods to earn a 3-2 win in Philly tonight. Scott Hartnell tapped home his 13th goal of the season in the crease halfway through the game for his third game-winner of the season. Wayne Simmonds led the way with a goal and an assist, while Ilya Bryzgalov made 25 saves in his fourth straight win. The victory, coupled with Florida’s 2-0 win at Boston, propelled the Flyers into the top spot in both the Atlantic Division and …

Atlantic Watch: 11/30-12/6

Taking part in their first two-game week since the opening week of the season, the Flyers enjoyed two road wins against Western Conference opponents on Friday and Saturday. Claude Giroux provided a pair of game-winning goals as Ilya Bryzgalov got back on track this week winning back-to-back road games for the first time since his shutout against the New Jersey Devils on October 8.

3 on 3 for the week of 12.04.2011

Welcome to this week’s 3-on-3, where we look back at the week that was for the Philadelphia Flyers. The Orange and Black had a mini road trip to the West Coast, winning both games and gathering 4 more points, keeping them in the hunt in the Eastern Conference for a top playoff seed.
