The Flyers are already good, just imagine if they can remedy their slow starts

Photo by Vincent Ethier/Icon Sportswire via It’s December and Alain Vigneault’s team still slumps in the first period, but they sure do ramp things up in the next two periods. A lot has gone right for the Flyers thus far, and while their record portrays that, there’s still work to be done in order to go to the next level. Teams can make leaps from good to great in a matter or time, but it’s almost always a progression and doesn’t happen overnight. Much like a game is progression from puck drop through two intermissions to the final horn. In terms of game progression, the...

Coyotes 3, Flyers 1: No longer streaking

Coyotes 3, Flyers 1: No longer streaking

Eric Hartline-USA TODAY Sports Some observations for your morning... Well, that certainly was a hockey game, right? It was kind of messy, not the prettiest, but the Flyers altogether played a very solid game and were able to control play through a good portion of the game. And, yep, they still lost. That’s hockey, baby! All stats via NHL.com and Natural Stat Trick How’d they look out there? 5-on-5: 50 CF, 23 SF, 55.74 CF%, 52.7 xGF% If you looked at that stat line and kind of got a little sad, well, I don’t really blame you. The Flyers played another very solid game, by the...

Can’t you guys just, like, score some more goals?

Photo by Len Redkoles/NHLI via Postgame 12/5 The Philadelphia Flyers failed to extend their winning streak to six games on Thursday night, falling 3-1 to Rick Tocchet’s Arizona Coyotes at the Wells Fargo Center. Despite out-shooting Arizona 29-18, and doubling them up in shot attempts, the ‘Yotes defeated the Flyers in regulation. The loss was only Philly’s second 60-minute defeat on home ice this season. Matt Niskanen scored for the orange and black in the final five minutes with Brian Elliott out in favor of the extra attacker to bring the Flyers within a goal, but Phil...

Slap Shots: Flyers vs Coyotes

Heather Barry - SB Nation NHL © The Philadelphia Flyers returned to action on Thursday night trying to continue their stretch of great hockey with a tough test against the Arizona Coyotes. Phil Kessel opened the scoring on a give-and-go in the first period. The Flyers tried to battle back, firing shots at Darcy Kuemper all night. The game would remain 1-0 until the second half of the third period until Conor Garland scores the eventual game-winner on a rebound in front. Matt Niskanen got the Flyers within a goal with the goaltender pulled off a shot that redirected off a defender to the...

Recap: Flyers fall to Coyotes, have their win streak snapped

Photo by Len Redkoles/NHLI via That game was frustrating, to say the very least. Three stars 1. Darcy f’in Kuemper I mean, what the hell were the Flyers supposed to do with this dude in net. He’s off to a ridiculous start this year, and of course he stands on his head yet again tonight. 2. Brian Elliott (probably) Elliott may not have had a whole lot to do in this game, but he was sharp nonetheless. He continues to put together a fine season and allow the Flyers to not miss a beat when Carter Hart sits. All in all, he made 15 saves 17 shots which sadly makes for a not-great save...

Preview: Flyers look to make it six in a row as they host Coyotes

Photo by Drew Hallowell/ Are the Coyotes good now? Maybe, maybe not. After a commanding win vs. Toronto, the Flyers stay at home to play the Arizona Coyotes, who are off to a great start. Arizona has been one of the bigger surprises this season, largely in part to their outstanding goaltending. Darcy Kuemper and Antti Raanta have been stellar for the Coyotes so far, having .936 and .924 save percentages respectively. Their play has the team at third best in the NHL in goals allowed with 69 (nice). Where Arizona struggles, on the other hand, is in scoring goals. They’re the 20th ranked...

How a weakness became a strength

How a weakness became a strength

Eric Hartline-USA TODAY Sports A look at how the penalty kill has become one of the best units in the league. At this point in time there aren’t many things to complain about when it comes to the Philadelphia Flyers’ play on the ice. General manager Chuck Fletcher’s moves in the offseason look to be paying off, the first- and second-year players on the roster are outperforming expectations, and Carter Hart looks legitimate. Perhaps a lot less exciting than those things is the fact the Orange and Black’s penalty kill is one of the best in the league. Going into Thursday night’s...

FanPulse results: Early NHL Awards predictions

Photo by Ethan Miller/ Not one single Flyer listed, but there could be! Welcome to week three of NHL FanPulse! This week I want to do something a little different since, uh, things did not go so well when I discussed the results last time. Instead of talking about why people voted the way they did, I’m going to present the results and then talk about which Flyers may potentially be in the conversation for these awards. Let’s start with the Calder Trophy for “the player selected as the most proficient in his first year of competition in the National Hockey League.” ...

Eric Hartline-USA TODAY Sports Some observations for your morning... Ah yes. One of the most skilled teams in the league came to Philly last night and the Flyers, after heading into the third period with a 1-0 lead, left for the night with a 6-1 win over the Maple Leafs. Just as we all predicted. All stats via Natural Stat Trick and NHL.com How’d they look out there? 5-on-5: 53 CF, 26 SF, 57.56 CF%, 57.82 xGF% In short, it was another very Flyers game that they put together last night. They started a little slow and gave the Leafs a good bit of space to work with in the first period,...
