Oh hey, we wasted our Saturday night too

Oh hey, we wasted our Saturday night too

Another game, another loss. This time a 5-1 clunker in Vancouver. We all stayed up late Friday night to watch the Flyers lose to the Edmonton Oilers, and then we stayed up late again on Saturday to watch them do the same thing in Vancouver. You know the definition of insanity, right? Yeah. Anyhoo, despite the 5-1 loss we still had some things to talk about after the game, including: Some positive things about this team that get lost in the noise The worrisome play of Ivan Provorov and Shayne Gostisbehere The goalie problem that, as bad as it was, has somehow gotten worse The final...

Travis Sanheim Has Earned More Responsibility With Philadelphia Flyers

Travis Sanheim Has Earned More Responsibility With Philadelphia Flyers

It took a while for Travis Sanheim to find his way onto the Philadelphia Flyers roster. It took even more time for him to find a stable role. With each passing game this season, however, Sanheim has proven that he is ready for more responsibility on the ice. It has become even more noticeable with the play of Ivan Provorov. While Provorov is not playing badly, it is clear that something is not right with the young defensemen. Taking away some of his on-ice responsibilities could help Provorov find his consistent play again. There would be no better player to give some of it to than Travis...

Friday Morning Fly By: What do you think Joel Quenneville is doing right now?

Today’s open discussion thread, complete with your daily dose of Philadelphia Flyers news and notes… *Jake “The Snake” illustrates that although Ivan Provorov hasn’t looked great this season, he is being asked to do A LOT by the coaching staff. [BSH] *The Flyers called up Alex Lyon, another goalie is going to have a doctor in Philly tell him he’s medically dead, another goalie is going to be with his wife until their baby is born. [Flyers] *Some guy that used to work here graded how well the Flyers defensemen and goalies have done a third of the way through the season. [The...

Ivan Provorov’s historically unenviable position

Ivan Provorov’s historically unenviable position

Ivan Provorov is not having a good season, but could the coaching staff do more in helping him try to fix it? When the Flyers drafted Ivan Provorov seventh overall in the 2015 NHL Draft, many fans and media members believed the Flyers had potentially found the homegrown number one defenseman this team has never had in its history. They would have a stalwart around whom they could build a defense corps and no longer have to hope and pray that an established franchise defenseman would become available via free agency or trade. Through his first two NHL seasons, things appeared to be trending...

Don’t call it a comeback

Don’t call it a comeback

Postgame reaction following 4-3 OT loss to Columbus The Philadelphia Flyers’ good players overcame head coach Dave Hakstol’s reliance on bad players to erase a two-goal deficit in the third period to force overtime against Sergei Bobrovsky’s Columbus Blue Jackets. Andrew MacDonald played nearly twenty-one minutes, second most among all defenders, and was minus-three. Travis Sanheim played 12:38 and scored both of Philly’s third period goals to tie the game. Unfortunately it was all for naught, as a defensive zone blunder between Sean Couturier and Ivan Provorov lead to Seth Jones...

Flyers complete third-period collapse in 4-3 loss to Senators

Flyers complete third-period collapse in 4-3 loss to Senators

Up 3-1 with over eight minutes left, the Flyers were unable to secure a point in this one. First period Ottawa’s youngsters would get the first scoring chance of the game, with Brady Tkachuk trying to stuff one home on the doorstep, but he was denied by Anthony Stolarz. Tkachuk posted three points in his first game against the Flyers earlier this season in Ottawa. But it would be the Flyers that would strike first, with the top line doing the honors. Travis Konecny one-timed a perfect feed from Claude Giroux to beat Mike McKenna and make it 1-0 just under five minutes in. Ivan Provorov...
