Capitals 2, Flyers 1: Fueled by loser points

Capitals 2, Flyers 1: Fueled by loser points

Eric Hartline-USA TODAY Sports Some observations for your morning... Stop me if you’ve heard this one before: the Flyers started out looking pretty brutal, dropped the first goal, and then had to rally back and play a more dominant third period in order to force overtime. And then couldn’t convert in overtime. So they went to the shootout. Where they lost this one. What’s that? You’re stopping me. Okay yep. On to the analysis. All stats via Natural Stat Trick and NHL.com How’d they look out there? 5-on-5: 41 CF, 22 SF, 41.18 CF%, 27.86 xGF% By the numbers, not an excellent...

The one point is nice, but...

Photo by Mitchell Leff/ Postgame 11/13 There are two ways to look at this game, and I’m torn down the middle on them. The Flyers just extended their November-long point streak to seven games whilst holding one of the best teams in the league to one goal through sixty-five minutes at the Wells Fargo Center on Wednesday night. That’s a huge step forward for a team still forming its identity and gelling as a unit under a new head coach. But, with that type of defensive and goaltending performance against the Washington Capitals, the highest-scoring team in the league, the two points...

Slap Shots: Flyers vs Captials

Slap Shots: Flyers vs Captials

Heather Barry - SB Nation NHL © Every game is 70+ minutes long now. The red-hot Philadelphia Flyers were looking to keep their stretch of strong play going with a tough match-up against the Washington Capitals Wednesday night. Carter Hart had a great outing, giving up one goal on 36 shots against. Claude Giroux paced the offense with a clutch power-play goal in the third period. The game would head to overtime and eventually, a shootout. Giroux would be the lone scorer for the Orange and Black, but Hart couldn’t keep the Capitals from the back of the net. With another point, the...

Hart shines, but Flyers fall in shootout to Capitals

Hart shines, but Flyers fall in shootout to Capitals

© Heather Barry So ends a promising winning streak, but thus continues a point getting streak! The Flyers’ luck in the shootout has come crashing back down to earth, gang. T.J. Oshie and Evgeny Kuznetsov scored while Braden Holtby denied Sean Couturier’s shootout-extending bid as the Capitals beat the Flyers, 2-1, on Wednesday night from the Wells Fargo Center. The loss ended the Flyers’ four-game winning streak, though they did pickup a point in a seventh-straight game in defeat. Loser points for everyone! Early on the Flyers struggled with immense forechecking and pressure...

Preview: Flyers face Capitals looking for fifth straight victory

Photo by Mark Goldman/Icon Sportswire via This team has been quite fun lately, can they keep it up? After a two day hiatus, the Flyers hit the ice again tonight against the Washington Capitals. This will be the first time the orange and black have played the Caps this season, continuing the brutal stretch of opponents the team has been on. After a back-to-back with two of the best teams in the Atlantic Division, the Flyers now face the top team in their own division. Washington has been off to an incredible start, posting a 13-2-4 record with 30 points in 19 games. They hold an...

Strong starts, a possible answer for the fourth line, and a pair of shootout wins

Strong starts, a possible answer for the fourth line, and a pair of shootout wins

Photo by Jim Davis/The Boston Globe via Analyzing the play of the lines and pairs from the Philadelphia Flyers’ shootout wins over the Toronto Maple Leafs and Boston Bruins this past weekend. For most of the 2019-20 Philadelphia Flyers’ season the question has been whether or not the team is good again. Tonight’s game against the Washington Capitals will help to paint a clearer picture, but with wins over the two teams that made the 2019 Eastern Conference Final and another over a Stanley Cup contender on their current four-game winning streak it feels like the question should...

What’s good (Phil!), what’s bad (Braun? maybe?), and how Carter Hart has saved our lives. The Morgan Frost question also comes up, which leads to a discussion about the makeup of the top lines and how we might improve them, if we could.

A statistical analysis of just how good the Sean Couturier line has been

A statistical analysis of just how good the Sean Couturier line has been

Photo by Len Redkoles/NHLI via The Flyers’ trio hasn’t just been good, they’ve been arguably the best line in hockey. One of the biggest reasons for the Flyers’ hot start to the 2019-20 season has been the play of the Sean Couturier line. He, along with Oskar Lindblom and Travis Konecny, have been one of the better lines in hockey as we approach the quarter-way mark of the season. Lindblom and Konecny are having breakout seasons, and Couturier is continuing to be one of the most underrated centers in the league. It was at first a questionable move on head coach Alain...
