Flyers grab win at their second home, beat Pens 2-1 in Pittsburgh

The Philadelphia Flyers earned their third straight win tonight, as they earned a 2-1 win over the Pittsburgh Penguins at the CONSOL Energy Center. Brayden Schenn had both of the Orange and Black’s tallies this evening, while Ray Emery came through for Philly with a strong 30-save performance. Naturally, Sidney Crosby was the lone player to beat Emery, as it looks as though Philadelphia might be turning this season in a positive direction. When Craig Berube was promoted to Flyers’ head coach, he talked about the team playing a strong defensive game and being better without the puck. The Orange …

Game 17 Preview: Philadelphia Flyers @ Ottawa Senators

Philadelphia Flyers (5-10-1) @ Ottawa Senators (7-6-4), 7:30pm, CSN-Philly Tonight’s meeting with the Senators in Ottawa is an interesting one for several reasons. One reason being the anticipation of Claude Giroux’s first performance after scoring his first goal of the season. We all know about Giroux’s recent goal drought, so we’ll see how he performs tonight after he has the weight of the World lifted off his shoulders. It’s easy to assume he’ll play more confidently, but what does that lead to? Will the ice suddenly become more open for him, as well as his line partners Scott Hartnell and …

Flyers’ Offense Comes to Life Against Edmonton, Leads Team to 4-2 Win Over Oilers

Claude Giroux finally busted out of his 15-game goal drought and the Flyers’ offense came to life against Edmonton, leading them to a 4-2 final against the Oilers on Saturday afternoon. Jay Rosehill, Scott Hartnell, and Vinny Lecavalier also scored for the orange & black, while David Perron and Taylor Hall got the tallies for Edmonton. The afternoon’s matchup pitted the NHL’s worst offensive team against its worst defensive team, which… didn’t sound promising for either side. However, the Flyers, who were held scoreless in their last game (Thursday at New Jersey), opened up the scoring first, with a nice …

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, …
