Two o’clock number: The Penguins, Sidney Crosby, and the number zero

Two o’clock number: The Penguins, Sidney Crosby, and the number zero

Photo by Len Redkoles/NHLI via It doesn’t happen often, so let’s enjoy it. In a big game before the All-Star break, the Philadelphia Flyers came out and gave the Pittsburgh Penguins literally nothing in a 3-0 win. Considering the opponent and how important points in the standings are to the Flyers at the moment, there’s an argument to be made that this was Philly’s biggest win over the other Pennsylvania squad since they clinched a playoff spot for Ed Snider in the second-to-last game of the 2015-16 season. Thanks to the Pens and one of the best players in their franchise...

Flyers 3, Penguins 0: You just hate to see it

Eric Hartline-USA TODAY Sports Some observations for your morning... They did it! The Pittsburgh Penguins, who always seem to have the Flyers’ number, no matter how beat up they are, came in to town and the Flyers shut them out at home. There’s nothing more to put in the introduction than that. They kept their nemesis off the board and it was pretty sweet. All stats via Natural Stat Trick. How’d they look out there? 5-on-5: 46 CF, 24 SF, 54.37 CF%, 52.65 xGF% On the whole, it was a strong night for the Flyers. It wasn’t as though they were still getting buried by shots, but...

Flyers should be feeling good heading into break

Photo by Len Redkoles/NHLI via Postgame 1/21 The Philadelphia Flyers allowed 19 shots on goal to the Pittsburgh Penguins on Tuesday night, and Brian Elliott stopped them all en route to a 3-0 victory at the Wells Fargo Center, ending the first half of the season on a celebratory note. Philly heads into a nine-day lay off for the All-Star break and bye week having won four of five, and going 5-2-1 (.688 points-percentage) over the last 15 days against the Carolina Hurricanes, Washington Capitals, Tampa Bay Lightning, Boston Bruins, St. Louis Blues, Montreal Canadiens, Los Angeles Kings,...

Slap Shots: Flyers vs Penguins

Heather Barry- SB Nation NHL / Broad Street Hockey © This one was a beaut. The Philadelphia Flyers were back in action for one final game before the All-Star Break. A date with the Pittsburgh Penguins, reigniting the rivalry between the two franchises. It was all Flyers in this one. Jake Voracek opened the scoring with a pretty backhand to make it 1-0 early in the second period. Late in the period, James van Riemsdyk received a nice pass from Travis Konecny and went five-hole to make it 2-0. Justin Braun added an empty net goal in the third to ice the game. Brian Elliott was strong all...

Well guess what, baby, call me the Houston Astros cause WE ARE DOING THIS. While Claude Giroux at center may not be the absolute best for the team when everyone is healthy, it’s hard to argue with how his line is going right now. The trio of himself, Travis Konecny, and James van Riemsdyk has been on fire of late and that continued tonight. With both Konecny and JVR scoring in this one, and coming off of great performances in the Kings game, I think...

Flyers look to take down rival Penguins, head into All-Star break with momentum

Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports Avenging that embarrassing 7-1 loss in Pittsburgh at the start of the year wouldn’t be bad, either. A familiar —and hated— foe is all that stands in the way between the Flyers and some badly needed time off. Pittsburgh is headed to town and are the Flyers’ last game until Jan. 31, when they travel to face these same Penguins to cap a home-and-home spread out over ten days and the NHL All-Star break. Not that they needed any help, as they were already cruising, but the Penguins welcomed back Sidney Crosby four games ago and have rolled to a...
