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 …

Crashing the Crease: Ray Emery Rewrites the Rulebook

This Flyers’ season has all the warning signs of becoming a hellish, merciless trek to the end, with Jay Rosehill and Kris Newbury continually making appearances (nothing personal, as I know they’re both approximately 1,394 times the hockey player I’ll ever be) and each game night’s posing the question of “Will we need our goalie to let up less than zero goals in order to win?” And then, adding to the misery, there was last week when the Washington Capitals, led by the rushing attack of Aaron Ward, put up a touchdown against the seemingly hapless Flyers. I say seemingly …

Flight Plan: Buckle Up and Buckle Down

Last week was a rough week. The Philadelphia Flyers lost a game in which they carried a 2-0 lead into the third period over the Anaheim Ducks, became the laughing stock of the entire NHL in a game against the Washington Capitals when they were blown out by a score of 7-0, and won a game 1-0 against the New Jersey Devils. I’d like to touch on the events of November 1st. This team needed something. I’m not of the school of thought that fighting in hockey is a bad thing. I think it’s great for the game, especially because …
