Preview: Tell me if you’ve heard this before, it’s Flyers vs. Islanders

This time in Allentown, home of the Phantoms. After a one day break, the Flyers hit the ice again this preseason against a familiar foe. For the fourth, and final, time in these preseason matchups, the Orange and Black take on the New York Islanders. The Flyers have faired well against their division rivals, going 2-1 in three games. The Islanders played last night vs. New Jersey and came away with a 2-0 win, and looking to split this oh so important preseason series. I’m just real sick of talking about the New York Islanders, okay? The fans making the trip to the home of the Phantoms...

MASCOT UPDATE: Good chance it’s orange

MASCOT UPDATE: Good chance it’s orange

Orange you glad I told you this? After dropping a not-so-subtle hint earlier in the week, the Philadelphia Flyers essentially cemented the fact they will have a mascot this season with a follow-up video earlier today. We're on the case... pic.twitter.com/ZgvJ67xl2f— Philadelphia Flyers (@NHLFlyers) September 21, 2018 The team brought in Chad Stevens, a private investigator, to look into the suspicious activity that had been going on around the rink. What he found were “long, orange hairs” all around the arena. So on top of kinda being a dick, we learned the Flyers’ future...

Michal Neuvirth might be hurt again

Michal Neuvirth might be hurt again

Let’s prepare ourselves Oh, man, folks, has there been one heck of a Friday news dump. Well, not so much a news dump. A possibility dump? Some speculation? Whatever you want to call, it the fact remains that Michal Neuvirth might have just gotten hurt in morning skate. You can read the tweet from Bill Meltzer from the rink below. Neuvirth was bent over, stretching groin for a long time, slammed stick and walked off, spoke briefly to Sal Raffa and Jim McCrossin. He is now leaving the ice.— Bill Meltzer (@billmeltzer) September 21, 2018 So, that is a thing, indeed. And, of course, we...

Doing Right by Rubtsov

Doing Right by Rubtsov

German Rubtsov opened some eyes at camp, but it wasn’t enough to keep him around. Good move? I believe so. It was a busy Thursday afternoon for Flyers GM Ron Hextall. He announced the Alex Lyon injury, signed camp invite Yegor Zamula to an entry-level contract and cut 11 players from the training camp roster. Among those cuts was 2016 1st rounder German Rubtsov. This may come as a bit of a surprise to some as word around camp was that the young Russian forward was turning some heads in practice. And he may have had his best performance of camp against the Rangers, getting on the...

Round three of Flyers’ roster cuts, and it’s a bigger one

Flyers sign Yegor Zamula to entry-level contract

Flyers sign Yegor Zamula to entry-level contract

We don’t want zero problems, big fella. The Philadelphia Flyers announced today that they have signed left-handed defenseman Yegor Zamula to an entry-level contract. The 6’3”, 160-pound 18-year-old is an undrafted free agent who was invited to last week’s rookie camp and impressed the coaching staff enough to take part in a pair of preseason games this week. Zamula joins Philippe Myers as the only two draft-eligible free agents defensemen General Manager Ron Hextall has signed in his tenure with the Flyers. Taking part in the Flyers’ 3-1 win over the New York Islanders on Monday...

Flyperbole: Let’s talk about a Flyers’ mascot

Having a mascot is going to be weird, but we’re all going to go through it together Steve and Craig talk about the possibility of the Flyers adding a mascot and what they would want out of said mascot. The two also discuss how likely it is Mikhail Vorobyev makes the team, as well as what the bottom six will look like. The guys also talk about Yegor Zamula, which Flyer is most likely to pull a Vontae Davis, and the constant mess that is none as the Ottawa Senators.

This is not hyperbole: BSH reacts following a 6-4 victory over Rangers A Facebook Live postgame chat after a preseason game? Hell yeah! Carter Hart looked like the future, Oskar Lindblom lit up his fellow countryman Henrik Lundqvist for a pair of goals and an assist in the first period, while Mikhail Vorobyev (1 goal, 17:33 TOI) and Jordan Weal (1 assist, 13:10 TOI) continued to battle for opening night center spots in a 6-4 victory over the New York Rangers at Madison Square Garden.

10 things we learned from a third straight win

10 things we learned from a third straight win

Not that kind of streaking. Three in a row, baby! The Flyers finally got to take on someone else besides the New York Islanders this preseason, and they delivered with a 6-4 victory over the New York Rangers in MSG. Don’t worry though, they play the Islanders later tonight because you know, of course they do. Anyway, let’s talk about the good and the bad from the Flyers third consecutive win in the preseason. 1. The Twarynski/Weal/Aube-Kubel line was on fire Two kids trying their damndest to make the hockey team, and Jordan Weal looking to earn a third line center spot. Carsen Twarynski...

Preview: It’s not the Islanders...but it’s another New York team

Still a New York team though. After a dominating 5-1 victory over the Islanders last night, the Flyers take on the New York Rangers tonight for their fourth game in as many days. This is the first game of the preseason against a team other than the Islanders, so it should be nice to see how well the Flyers matchup against another divisional foe. The Rangers are in the middle of a rebuild, trading away Ryan McDonagh last season along with sending a letter to fans quite literally saying they are rebuilding. Below is the Rangers’ projected roster for tonight’s game: PROJECTED #NYR...

How to drag your friends into existential nightmare: a five step system

How to drag your friends into existential nightmare: a five step system

Feeling lonely in your fandom? Let’s fix that. Preseason is now upon us, and that can only mean one thing: we are right around the corner from the best time of the year. That’s right: soon, you’ll get to alienate yourself by being the most rabid, most obsessive fan of the least popular Big Four sport in America. Can you smell it in the air? Ah. Eau de desperation, with distinct notes of please like my sport. But what if it didn’t have to be this way? What if there was a way to convince your closest friends, the people you love and cherish with your whole self, to lower themselves...
