Powe and Meszaros Score, Flyers Win 3-1

Goals from unexpected sources and strong goaltending helped the Flyers beat the visiting Dallas Stars 3-1 on Saturday night, in the first of two meetings this season. Andrej Meszaros opened the scoring with a late first period goal and Darroll Powe netted a shorthanded goal early in the second period that ended up being the game winning tally. After a garbage goal by Brenden Morrow later in the period, Jeff Carter scored the lone goal of the third period to put the game away for Philly. The win is the Flyers’ second in a row and eighth in 10, and …

Five Questions: What moves do the Flyers need to make, if any, at the deadline?

Flyers Faithful asked Dustin Leed from The Fourth Period and The Hockey Guys, Stephen Whyno from Philly Sports Daily, David Strehle from NHL Hot Stove, and our very own Nick D five questions about the ’11 Flyers’ season. 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: What moves do the Flyers need to make, if any, at the deadline? Dustin Leed: I think the Flyers need a depth winger who can play up and down the line-up. Preferably a …

The morning after: Senators @ Flyers 11.15.10

“The morning after” is a review of the previous night’s Flyers’ game which, in theory, provides a more objective perspective on the game. So the Flyers seem to be playing pretty dominant hockey lately, eh?  The schedule looks tough this week, and it will be a good test for the team.  Not multiple choice, but one of those essay ones that you have to write in those blue books. This game was touted a clash of two of the hottest teams in the league right now.  And the Flyers dominated.  The game started slowly, with a bit of feeling-out in the beginning …

The morning after: Flyers @ Sabres 10.26.10

“The morning after” is a review of the previous night’s Flyers’ game which, in theory, provides a more objective perspective on the game. Given how the ’11 season started, there were many abnormalities to last night’s victory over the Buffalo Sabres: The power play potted three goals, equaling the total of PP goals they scored coming into last night’s game. The offense was potent. The enigma wrapped in a jersey hidden behind a tinted visor that is Nikolay Zherdev scored his second goal of the season. The Flyers came out flying in the second period. The snakebitten energy generators, Darroll …

The morning after: Flyers vs. Ducks 10.21.10

“The morning after” is a review of the previous night’s Flyers’ game which, in theory, provides a more objective perspective on the game. In the four days that the Flyers were off, players were bag skated, the team worked on the power play, and they had plenty of time to rest so that they could come out hard against the Anaheim Ducks, a team that stumbled out of the gate this season. Much like the game against the Pittsburgh Penguins this past Saturday, this win was there for the taking and the Flyers did not grab it. Instead, they dropped …
