The morning after: Flyers vs. Hurricanes 11.1.10

“The morning after” is a review of the previous night’s Flyers’ game which, in theory, provides a more objective perspective on the game. It was nice to come home after a long weekend away to see a dominant Flyers’ team earn their fourth straight win. There’s no reason this streak shouldn’t span over the next two games either. I was out of town for the two previous games and unable to watch them. So, I apologize if I missed any connections. Since this post is very late and there are countless other articles on last night’s game already, I’m going …

Who is the most improved Flyer so far?

Through the first tenth of the ’11 NHL season, we have seen some remarkable play from a handful of different Flyers. Danny Briere and Claude Giroux have led the offense but Ville Leino and Scott Hartnell are working very hard, even if they do not get on the score sheet as often. So, who do you think has improved the most to date from last season? If you choose the “Other” option, please leave a comment explaining your answer.

The snakebitten energy generators, Darroll …

Today’s question is: Of the Flyers that had a down season which, if any, will rebound? Sarah Baicker: My vote goes to Danny Briere, who as we all know, had a disappointing regular season …

The morning after: Penguins vs. Flyers 10.16.10

“The morning after” is a review of the previous night’s Flyers’ game which, in theory, provides a more objective perspective on the game. I’m suffering a Philadelphia sports hangover this morning. It feels like I went out to have some good clean fun but someone kept handing me shots of Godlschlager all night. The losses by both the Flyers and Phillies sting. Going into last night’s sporting festivities, there was no reason the Flyers should have lost to the Pittsburgh Penguins. Due to numerous injuries, the Penguins were icing more of an AHL supporting cast than they usually do and, …
