Flyers look for season sweep over Red Wings tonight

Flyers look for season sweep over Red Wings tonight

Try not to blow a lead this time though fellas. After a thrilling and yet oh so frustrating 6-5 overtime win yesterday, the Flyers are back yet again to finish their season series with the Detroit Red Wings. The Flyers won the first meeting between the two teams in a much more tame, 3-2 victory. Today they’ll attempt the sweep of the Red Wings for the first time since they began facing them more than once a season, back in 2011-12. They’ve come close the past two seasons, but one overtime loss each year got in the way. The win yesterday put the Flyers just seven points outside of a...

Flyers 6, Red Wings 5: Who’s gonna score a hockey goal? Everyone, apparently

Some observations for your morning... Well, that one certainly was an emotional roller coaster, now wasn’t it? The Flyers maybe made things a little more interesting than they needed to, but they were still able to pull off a win. Let’s take a quick look at what we learned in this game against the Red Wings before we hit this evening’s game… against… the Red Wings…? Who did this? All stats via Natural Stat Trick and NHL.com 1. The fourth line, hello While we were still settling into this game, if you will, our first observation came to us easily: the fourth line is out here...

The Philadelphia Flyers were back in action at the Wells Fargo Center as they hosted the Detroit Red Wings in a home-and-home series. The Flyers were led by the heroics of Travis Konecny, who scored two goals including the game-winner in overtime. They would blow a 5-1 lead in the third period that would send the game into the extra frame. Four different Flyers scored in the win, including Nolan Patrick, who added three points on the day. Following the win, Carter Hart met with Connor Parkkila, the reason why Carter Hart wears the number 79. The Flyers return to action Sunday night against...

10 thoughts about the Cam Talbot for Anthony Stolarz trade

10 thoughts about the Cam Talbot for Anthony Stolarz trade

Did the Flyers give up on Stolarz too quickly? Can Talbot find his mojo out of Edmonton? Those, plus some more thoughts about Chucky’s Midnight Goalie Swap. After a couple of days’ worth of rumors linking goalie Cam Talbot to Philadelphia, the Flyers finally made their move right at the stroke of midnight on Saturday, bringing in Talbot from Edmonton in exchange for Anthony Stolarz. The trade was a straight up, player-for-player swap, with no picks or salary considerations changing hands either way. While not a huge move, this is a swap that has meaningful reverberations for the Flyers...

Flyers blow lead late, score overtime winner in thriller vs. Red Wings

Flyers blow lead late, score overtime winner in thriller vs. Red Wings

Whew boy the emotions felt in this one. First Period For both teams, the pace in the early going of this one was strong. The Flyers had mustered a few solid chances and there seemed to be a lot of open ice in the opening minutes. Claude Giroux almost had a breakaway opportunity, and Nolan Patrick almost got the puck to Scott Laughton for a good 2-on-1 chance. The Flyers would strike first in the home and home battle with Detroit, as Nolan Patrick made a fantastic play to create space for himself, and sauce the puck to Shayne Gostisbehere who made no mistake. Patrick showed the right amount...

Flyers look to gain ground in standings with weekend series against Red Wings

Flyers look to gain ground in standings with weekend series against Red Wings

Two teams who both got burned by the Petr Mrazek experience, something we won’t forget soon enough. The Flyers are desperate to make up ground in the Eastern Conference playoff race, and a weekend home-and-home with one of the NHL’s weakest teams could be just what the doctor ordered. Winners of 10 of their past 12 games, the Flyers look to continue the momentum they built in a comeback win over the Wild when they tangle with the Red Wings for a matinee at the Wells Fargo Center today followed by a trip to Little Caesars Arena tomorrow night. Detroit sits a full six points behind...

You’re thinking Dylan Larkin, but watch for Thomas Vanek

You’re thinking Dylan Larkin, but watch for Thomas Vanek

Why preview one game when you can preview two? The Flyers last played the Detroit Red Wings back in December when things were getting pretty wild for our team. A lot has changed for us, and Peter Flynn of Winging it in Motown and the Fer Sure Podcast joined us to run down what has changed for the Wings and to learn a bit about an organization that can go one of two ways: successful rebuild or a continuation of an ongoing tire fire. Also, Dylan Larkin is really good at hockey.

Phantoms weekly rundown: Reinforcements coming

Phantoms weekly rundown: Reinforcements coming

Got a whole bunch of new faces to learn Where we are Friday’s game in Utica saw the Phantoms get off to a strong enough start, taking a 2-0 lead in the second period, with goals for Justin Bailey and Philippe Myers (hmm, I wonder if that’s going to be important later), and things were looking good. And then Utica got one back late in the second, but things still looked okay. But, little did we know, collapse was coming on the other side of the intermission. The Comets scored three more in just over the first half of the third, and it was over for the Phantoms. They just couldn’t seem...

Flyers activate Pascal Laberge from IR, loan to Lehigh Valley Phantoms

Good news on a Thursday! We’ve got some good news coming out on this fine Thursday afternoon, folks! The Flyers have just announced that they’ve activated forward Pascal Laberge from Injured Reserve and loaned him to their AHL affiliate, the Lehigh Valley Phantoms. Laberge hasn’t seen any game action so far this season, having been sidelined after undergoing hip surgery during training camp. He’s been practicing with the Phantoms these last couple weeks, and now seems fit to make his regular season debut. Laberge had 52 points in 71 games last season, split between the...

Rumor: Flyers are talking to Edmonton about Cam Talbot

Rumor: Flyers are talking to Edmonton about Cam Talbot

He apparently has a good relationship with Carter Hart. According to TSN’s Darren Dreger, the Philadelphia Flyers and Edmonton Oilers are talking about a trade that would send Cam Talbot to Philly. This comes after Elliotte Friedman evidently said the same thing on Sportsnet last night. The 31-year-old goalie is 10-15-3 this season with an .893 save percentage, 3.36 goals against average, and one shutout. He has a cap hit of $4.167 million and is an unrestricted free agent this summer. Word is the Oilers and Flyers are in trade discussions on Cam Talbot. Could be preliminary, but...
