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 …

Mistakes cost Flyers in Carolina, fall 2-1

For the second time in two days, the Philadelphia Flyers were outworked by the opposition, as the Carolina Hurricanes grabbed a 2-1 victory at home. It was a Radek Dvorak goal in the second period that proved to be a game-winner, as Jay Harrison also scored for the hosts. Luke Schenn was the only member of Philly to beat Anton Khudobin on the evening, as the former Boston Bruin stopped 17 of the Flyers’ 18 shots.

Atlantic Watch: 2/29-3/6

For the first time in awhile, the Flyers put together a string of wins this week, as they won all three of their contests. Ilya Bryzgalov played a big part in the team’s success, as he won all three games with a save percentage of .948. With a four-game schedule ahead for the next seven days, hopefully Bryzgalov can keep Philly’s winning ways intact against some strong opponents. In their first game of the week, the Flyers beat the visiting New York Islanders by a score of 6-3. It looked like Bryzgalov was back to his usual ways, as Josh …

Bobrovsky, Rookies Lead Flyers Past Hurricanes

Cam Ward made 35 saves as well, while Jerome Samson recorded …

Flight Plan Week of 11.20.2011

The Philadelphia Flyers were on a pretty good run, collecting points in eight straight games. That streak dated all the way back to October 27 when they played the Winnipeg Jets in a wild game where 17 goals were scored and the Flyers ended up losing 9-8. As fate would have it, their most recent loss in regulation would also come at the hands of the Jets, by a score of 6-4 on Saturday. For some reason, Peter Laviolette cannot win games against either the Jets or the Atlanta Thrashers, doing so only once in his tenure as the head …
