Analyzing the Flyers shot quality over the first three games

Analyzing the Flyers shot quality over the first three games

Photo by Derek Cain/Icon Sportswire via What’s that? The Flyers are taking fewer point shots? As I am sure you are aware, a common lament thrown at the Flyers from a tactical perspective was their tendency to prefer a ‘low to high’ system. Instead of emphasizing a final goal of working the puck towards the slot and behind the net, the Flyers emphasized shooting the puck by any means necessary, with this usually taking the form of shots from the point. For a while, this kind of worked! When Shayne Gostisbehere was originally called up in 2015-16 (yes he played two games in 2014-15...

What we learned from the Flyers’ first taste of defeat in 2019-20

Photo by Jeff Vinnick/NHLI via The shootout still sucks, and some other observations from a 3-2 loss in Vancouver to the Canucks. The Flyers fell from the ranks of the NHL’s undefeated after last night’s 3-2 setback via the shootout to the Canucks. It wasn’t all bad though, as Carsen Twarynski scored his first NHL goal and Carter Hart kept the sagging Flyers in the game through a lackluster start. Without further ado, let’s dive on in and see what we can takeaway from an uneven outing in Vancouver. The Metrics (via NaturalStatTrick) 5v5 Corsi-For: 56.04% 5v5 xGF: 51.23% 5v5...

Who doesn’t love a late night shootout?

Photo by Derek Cain/Icon Sportswire via Postgame 10/12 The dream is dead. The Philadelphia Flyers will not go 82-0-0 in 2019-20, after dropping the first game of their Western Canadian road trip to the Vancouver Canucks, 3-2 in a shootout. Philly won the shot and shot attempt battle, but were never able to create enough momentum to open the floodgates, as Jacob Markstrom stole the show by stopping 30 of 32 shots on goal through 65 minutes, then denying both Jakub Voracek and Kevin Hayes in the shootout. While Claude Giroux was able to bury his free breakaway attempt, it wasn’t...

Recap: Flyers lose 3-2 in shootout to Canucks

They dominated the third, but Jacob Markstrom and company were just too good tonight. First Period OH BABY, it’s the first #FlyersAfterDark game of the season folks and the team is 2-0 let’s get ... ah, well, it’s 1-0 Vancouver. The Canucks would score shortly after the five minute mark of the opening frame, as Brock Boeser made no mistake on a rebound chance from a point shot by Tyler Myers. There’s really not a lot of blame to go around on a goal like that, it was a good break for Vancouver and a bad one for Philadelphia, just one of those goals. It would have been nice to...

Photo by Andy Lewis/Icon Sportswire via Analyzing the play of the Flyers’ forwards in Wednesday’s win over the New Jersey Devils. The Philadelphia Flyers put together another strong performance in their second win of the 2019-20 regular season, which was a 4-0 decision over the visiting New Jersey Devils on Wednesday. The club gave the Flyers’ faithful hope that with a game-changing save from Carter Hart, a huge 5-on-3 penalty kill for a full two minutes, and adding on to a lead in the third period rather than sitting back are trends this team keep in place for the rest of the...

Preview: Flyers visit Canucks, kick off another road trip

Photo by Len Redkoles/NHLI via What even is a home game? Well, who doesn’t love a road trip? The Flyers swung back home for one game this week after finishing up their Europe trip, and now they’re on the road again. Which means we also haven’t seen much of them on the ice, with all of those travel days. To recap, the Flyers have already beaten the Blackhawks and Devils in their first two games, so we know that they’re going 82-0 this season, right? Okay, maybe not. But we’re at least hoping that they can at leas extend that streak to three with a win over the Canucks tonight....

Throughout the season, we’ll be taking a walk down memory lane whenever the Flyers open their season series against an opponent. We’ll be remembering a game, goal, or highlight Philly created while playing against that particular team. It won’t always be the most notable memory the Orange and Black have against that team, but it’ll be something that Flyers’ fans will want to remember. Before we start with the sweet, sweet throwback ‘tent, I am so annoyed there is not a picture from...
