Hockey Hilarity: Rosehill, Lecavalier, Basically The Same Guy According To The NHL Network

Friday funnies brought to you straight from hockey’s own players, media personnel, and broadcast botches. We’ll be mucking it up every week right here, examining puck ups, puns, tweets, and more! Last weekend the Philadelphia Flyers played a game against the Edmonton Oilers. The Flyers won the game, scoring four goals in the process. The first goal of the game was scored by Jay Rosehill… But if you were watching the NHL Network, you might have been a little bit confused as to who actually scored the first goal: As you can see, Jay Rosehill is there in the middle, being isolated …

Fake Hockey Help: Coyotes’ offense, Evgeni Nabokov, the shot-blocking Canadiens

For a team that is known for their goaltending and their young puck-moving defense, the Phoenix Coyotes are currently eighth in the NHL with 3.11 goals per game. Although most of the bigger names on Phoenix are 100-percent owned in ESPN leagues, there are still some players available who wouldn’t be a bad addition. One of those players is Antoine Vermette, who is still available in 7.8 percent of the ESPN leagues. He averages the third-most time on the ice for a Coyotes’ forward, as he is on the team’s first power-play unit as well as the team’s third line. …

Game 16 Preview: Edmonton Oilers @ Philadelphia Flyers

Edmonton Oilers (4-11-2) @ Philadelphia Flyers (4-10-1), 1:00pm, NHL Network/CSN-Philly Well, a meeting between the second-worst and third-worst teams in the NHL took an interesting turn on Friday. After a day filled with several trade rumors between the two clubs, the Edmonton Oilers signed a recently released Philadelphia Flyer that was at least entertaining, if not productive on the ice, as the Western Conference club signed Ilya Bryzgalov. It seemed as though it was only a matter of time before a club reached out to the former Philly goaltending character. Ironically, the team that did so signed Bryzgalov the day …

Flyers shut out for second straight home game, lose 3-0 to Devils

If you saw Saturday’s win against this club or Tuesday’s loss to the Carolina Hurricanes, you essentially saw tonight’s 3-0 loss for the Philadelphia Flyers to the New Jersey Devils. Adam Henrique, Cam Janssen, and Jaromir Jagr beat Ray Emery tonight for the visitors, while Martin Brodeur posted a 22-save shutout. Emery had two deflections beat him, but he didn’t have any memorable saves for the Orange and Black. The Flyers were shutout for the second time in four games and the second straight time on home ice. There were minimal scoring chances for either team, but unfortunately for the Flyers, …

Game 14 Preview: Philadelphia Flyers @ Carolina Hurricanes

Philadelphia Flyers (4-9-0) @ Carolina Hurricanes (4-7-3), 7:30pm, NBCSN/CSN-Philly One can make the argument that any stretch of games is key to a team’s success for a season, but the next four games for the Philadelphia Flyers might be the most important stretch all season. Playing two teams with as many wins as they currently do in the Carolina Hurricanes and the Ottawa Senators along with two teams who have less wins than them in the New Jersey Devils and Edmonton Oilers, the Orange and Black have a real opportunity to gain some momentum and confidence to perhaps get out …
