Flight Plan week of 11.07.2010

Flight Plan is a new column that will take a more in depth look at the Flyers’ upcoming opponents every week here at Flyers Faithful. Two weeks ago, the Philadelphia Flyers had not won two games in a row and had been playing sound in maybe one or two areas of their game.  Other than the Danny Briere, Scott Hartnell, and Ville Leino line, nothing seemed to click on a nightly basis for this team and something just seemed off. Now the Flyers have not only won two straight, but are in the midst of a six-game winning streak. The …

The morning after: Flyers vs. Hurricanes 11.1.10

“The morning after” is a review of the previous night’s Flyers’ game which, in theory, provides a more objective perspective on the game. It was nice to come home after a long weekend away to see a dominant Flyers’ team earn their fourth straight win. There’s no reason this streak shouldn’t span over the next two games either.

Since this post is very late and there are countless other articles on last night’s game already, I’m going …

The morning after: Flyers @ Penguins 10.29.10

“The morning after” is a review of the previous night’s Flyers’ game which, in theory, provides a more objective perspective on the game. Wow!  Excitement at the beginning and the end of this game (lacking somewhat in the middle).  Viewed as a whole, it was a good game to start the “dad weekend”.  (Aside: Who wants to party with the Carcillos?  Here we go!)  If you missed the first 2:35 of this game, you missed a lot. 30 minutes of penalties, a great off-the-puck-drop fight between Captain Mike Richards and Matt Cooke (who got pummeled at the end of the fight …

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 …
