Flight Plan: Week of 01.28.2013

The Philadelphia Flyers had an even-up week as they won two games against the New York Rangers and the Florida Panthers, and lost two games against the New Jersey Devils and the Tampa Bay Lightning. As it sits, the Flyers are owners of a 2-4-0 record with four points, which is good enough for last in the Atlantic Division. To boot, any good vibes that may have been building for the club in two near complete game wins over the Rangers and Panthers, were quickly washed away as Philadelphia was easily handled by Tampa Bay in a 5-1 loss where …

Flight Plan 01.14.2013

  Now Boarding: Finally the National Hockey League’s brand of professional ice hockey will be back where it belongs: on the ice, in the arenas, in front of the fans in those buildings and at home.

Now training camp (you know, that one practice) is around the corner, and all eyes will be on the ice. The question is: what …

Be More Offensive?

It appears the latest round of negotiations between the National Hockey League and the NHLPA to solve the lockout might lead to some positive results, finally giving the fans a team back to root for. But if the Flyers were to take the ice in the immediate future, would the fans even be happy with what they saw? This has been a relatively disappointing offseason for the Flyers.

Hockey Hilarity: Classic Mix-up 2.0

Friday funnies brought to you straight from hockey’s own players and media personnel. We’ll be mucking it up every week right here, examining puck ups, puns, tweets, and more! You may recall a couple of months ago, Philadelphia Flyers forward Jake Voracek sent out a tweet about how he was mistaken for one Claude Giroux while hanging out in Montreal. You can read that snippet by clicking here. Well, it happened again, but this time with a twist. Claude Giroux was falsely identified as one Jake Voracek in Prague. Gotta love hockey players. Hope everyone has a nice week and comes back …
