Should the Flyers trade for Jeff Carter?

Should the Flyers trade for Jeff Carter?

Photo by Matthew Stockman/ This would certainly be spicy. As the Flyers prepared to take on the Los Angeles Kings in the final game of their season series Saturday night, I came across an interesting article from NBC Sports Philadelphia’s Jordan Hall: As Jeff Carter's Kings make a trip to Philly, could the former Flyer be a trade deadline target?(@JHallNBCS) https://t.co/Fex59WghQo— NBC Sports Philadelphia (@NBCSPhilly) January 18, 2020 The Flyers reacquiring a prized player from years past? That would be very, very spicy, and also would be nothing new to Flyers fans. The Flyers...

Flyers: Getting to Know Tyler Pitlick

When Philadelphia Flyers general manager Chuck Fletcher traded for forward Tyler Pitlick, he was bringing in a tough, rugged, bottom-six forward who could also contribute point-wise every so often. Rugged toughness is something that has been in the DNA of the Flyers for pretty much their entire existence. They weren’t called the Broad Street Bullies […] The post Flyers: Getting to Know Tyler Pitlick appeared first on The Hockey Writers.

Flyers 4, Kings 1: Back on track

Flyers 4, Kings 1: Back on track

Photo by Drew Hallowell/ Some observations for your morning... They did it folks. The Flyers got their revenge on the Kings. And it didn’t come in the form of someone taking a run at Kurtis MacDermid for that hit he made on Ivan Provorov in their last meeting. Nope, the Flyers got their revenge by coming out and playing a pretty solid hockey game, and making sure that the Kings ended their own road trip on a sour note. Which might not be quite as dramatic, but no less effective. All stats via Natural Stat Trick. How’d they look out there? 5-on-5: 35 CF, 21 SF, 37.23 CF%, 37.69...

Slap Shots: Flyers vs Kings

Heather Barry - SB Nation NHL / Broad Street Hockey © Another win! The Philadelphia Flyers were back in action for 80s night at the Wells Fargo Center. The Orange and Black were looking to bounce back against the Los Angeles Kings, who they lost to on New Year’s Eve. Travis Konecny opened the scoring off a beautiful pass from James van Riemsdyk to get the building going. JVR then found Konecny early in the second and he buried his second goal of the evening. Midway through the second Joel Farabee got on the board for the second-consecutive game. After Dustin Brown got the Kings on...

Recap: Flyers down Kings 4-1, win third out of last four

Recap: Flyers down Kings 4-1, win third out of last four

Photo by Drew Hallowell/ Good night, good hockey. Three Stars 1. Travis Konecny The lone Flyers all-star representative was on fire tonight. If there was extended offensive zone time, Konecny would be right in the middle of it. He scored the first two goals of the game and in impressive fashion, showing just how good his shot has become since he entered the league. He now has 17 on the season, putting him just seven away from tying his career high of 24. His breakout season has been arguably the funnest aspect of this Flyers team, and it’s amazing how far he’s come from being in...

Friedman loaned to Lehigh Valley

Photo by Len Redkoles/NHLI via The d-man registered his first NHL point in this five-game stint. With Justin Braun’s return to the lineup tonight, the Philadelphia Flyers have loaned defenseman Mark Friedman back to the Lehigh Valley Phantoms. The Orange and Black have been without two of their regular defensemen for the last five games, but with Braun’s return the Flyers will head into a game with their ideal top four intact for the first time since January 4th. Friedman may have made his NHL debut in last year’s regular season finale, but this stretch of games was his first...

The Pens are coming to town; how about we get wild?

Photo by Mike Stobe/NHLI via One game before we break, friends. Friends, let’s have a little chat. A lot has been made this season of the Flyers’ very visible attendance issues. The team is averaging 17,995 fans in the building this season, well short of the listed capacity of 19,537. And listen, we get it. Tickets are expensive. Parking is absurdly expensive. Your couch is comfortable and warm. And the team has been, to put it mildly, a bit of a letdown over the last several years. The apathy is strong among us right now. But as we head into the long, blissful, relaxing All-Star...

Flyers look to rebound, exact revenge against lowly Kings

Flyers look to rebound, exact revenge against lowly Kings

Jayne Kamin-Oncea-USA TODAY Sports Let’s pretend like the whole debacle against Montreal on Thursday never happened. For the Flyers it’s been a case of one step forward and then an immediate step back of late. After promising wins against the likes of the Capitals, Bruins, and Blues, the Flyers fell flat on their face against the Canadiens on Thursday. A thrilling 4-3 win in St. Louis was dismissed by a 4-1 loss back at home in the Wells Fargo Center to a Montreal team wallowing in no-man’s land in the standings. But Carey Price was good, Ilya Kovalchuck turned back the clock,...

Canadiens 4, Flyers 1: Can’t Hab it all (sorry)

Eric Hartline-USA TODAY Sports Some observations for your morning… This was a tough one, gang. The Flyers defeated the reigning Stanley Cup champs on Wednesday and then came home and pretty decidedly dropped the ball. They didn’t altogether play very poorly, but it felt a lot like a game of missed opportunities. Let’s talk about it. All stats via Natural Stat Trick. How’d they look out there? 5-on-5: 43 CF, 30 SF, 42.14 CF%, 44.89 xGF% By the numbers, it wasn’t a great night for the Flyers. It feels a little strange to be saying this about a game where they also put up 30...

Hey at least Farabee scored

Photo by Mitchell Leff/ Postgame 1/16 And on the tenth day, the Philadelphia Flyers rested. Coming off a nine day stretch in which the Flyers picked up seven of ten points against the Carolina Hurricanes, Washington Capitals, Tampa Bay Lightning, Boston Bruins, and St. Louis Blues, Philly just didn’t have it on the back end of consecutive games. Returning home to the Wells Fargo Center was not enough to energize the depleted Flyers, who dropped Thursday’s contest to the Montreal Canadiens 4-1. The loss was only their fourth in regulation on home ice this season, but second in less...

Slap Shots: Flyers vs Canadiens

Heather Barry - SB Nation NHL / Broad Street Hockey © Meh. The Philadelphia Flyers were back at the Wells Fargo Center trying time keep their winning streak alive against the Montreal Canadiens. They got out to an early lead as recently-recalled Joel Farabee ended a goal drought with just a minute left in the first period. That lead would last all but 20 seconds as the Canadiens jumped back on and tied the game. It wasn’t Alex Lyon’s best night, who was starting in place of injured Carter Hart. The Canadiens got to Lyon in a flash, capitalizing on breakdowns and scoring twice in 20...
