Flyers Struggle to Capitalize on Man Advantage, Fall to Florida 3-1

Missed powerplay opportunities and struggles with puck control were the Flyers’ downfall as they lost to the Florida Panthers on Monday night with a final score of 3-1.

Steve Mason recorded 28 of 31 shots, while Tim Thomas held the Flyers to only one goal on 38 shots.

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.

Game 11 Preview: Anaheim Ducks @ Philadelphia Flyers

Anaheim Ducks (9-3-0) @ Philadelphia Flyers (3-7-0), 7:00pm, CSN-Philly/PRIME After a pair of wins, the Philadelphia Flyers find themselves sitting at 3-7-0 and arguably still searching for their first impressive victory of the season. With one win coming against a Florida Panthers team that saw Tim Thomas let in two soft goals and a sloppy win against the New York Rangers, the Orange and Black did look strong against the New York Islanders for their third win of the year on Saturday. However, it did come against Kevin Poulin and a squad who just played against the Pittsburgh Penguins in Pennsylvania …
