Flyers lose third straight at the hands of McDavid and the Oilers

Flyers lose third straight at the hands of McDavid and the Oilers

Did we really expect anything else? First Period Much of the opening minutes in this one featured a typical game vs. a Ken Hitchcock coached team. Tight checking and not a lot of high quality scoring chances dominated the start tonight, although the Flyers contributed to this with a touch of over passing. Wayne Simmonds had a chance to dart to the net or simply skate in and take a shot, but chose to pass to Jakub Voracek. Later, around the halfway mark of the period, Travis Konecny had a seemingly good chance on a cross ice one timer, but attempted a pass to the net front that was knocked...

Flyers see a familiar face in their first meeting with Edmonton

Flyers see a familiar face in their first meeting with Edmonton

Place your bets in the comments as to how many goals McDavid is scoring tonight. After an embarrassing, yet oh so predictable, overtime loss at the hands of the other Alberta team in the Calgary Flames, the Flyers take on the Edmonton Oilers tonight in attempt to bounce back. This will be the first meeting of the season between the two teams and the Flyers first look at the Oilers under former Philadelphia bench boss, Ken Hitchcock. Hitch has turned the Oilers around in a big way since taking the reins on November 20 of this year. The Oilers were 9-10-1 before the firing of former head...

Phantoms weekly rundown: Who will be the Last Phantom Standing

Phantoms weekly rundown: Who will be the Last Phantom Standing

And then there were none. Where we are Lots to recap on the game action front, but regrettably it’s not as much good news as we were able to bring you last week. The Phantoms closed out the last stretch of their six-in-nine (nice) starting with one of two meetings on the week with the Cleveland Monsters on Wednesday. It was a rough start but they still came out of it tied at zero after the first period, but they were looking to get back on track. Cleveland took a one goal lead in the second, and then made it a two goal lead early in the third, but a goal from Nicolas Aube-Kubel had the...

Alex Ovechkin could score power play goals at age 45

Alex Ovechkin could score power play goals at age 45

Goals, and goalies, and Fire Hakstol. After a brief detour into complaining about The Hockey Team The Flyers, the gang turns its attention to more fun topics, such as Alex Ovechkin’s ability to keep scoring goals despite his party-filled summer, the increase in offense so far in the NHL this season, and pucks bouncing off officials and ending up in the back of nets. Follow us on twitter @BSH_Radio so you don’t miss out on any fun stuff! And then head over to iTunes, subscribe to the pod, and leave us a review, it’s the holiday season and five stars are on our list.

The Spectrum’s loudest moment

The Spectrum’s loudest moment

J.J. Daigneault’s only playoff goal as a Philadelphia Flyer was pretty important. 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. The Spectrum was the home of the Philadelphia Flyers from their inaugural season through the 1995-96 season. It was...

Ken Hitchcock still hates goals

Ken Hitchcock still hates goals

Connor McDavid is fun, y’all. The Flyers are in Edmonton tonight, aaalllll the way at 9PM here on the East Coast, and the Flyers will be looking to rebound after that huge embarrassing failure in Calgary the other night. Edmonton for their part will be on the second half of a back-to-back and will be continuing to try and improve under new coach Ken Hitchcock. You remember our old pal Ken, right? Hopefully the Flyers will come to play and we’ll have ourselves a game. We were joined by Patrick Olsen of The Copper & Blue to preview tonight’s game, and here’s what we talked about:...

Friday Morning Fly By: What do you think Joel Quenneville is doing right now?

Today’s open discussion thread, complete with your daily dose of Philadelphia Flyers news and notes… *Jake “The Snake” illustrates that although Ivan Provorov hasn’t looked great this season, he is being asked to do A LOT by the coaching staff. [BSH] *The Flyers called up Alex Lyon, another goalie is going to have a doctor in Philly tell him he’s medically dead, another goalie is going to be with his wife until their baby is born. [Flyers] *Some guy that used to work here graded how well the Flyers defensemen and goalies have done a third of the way through the season. [The...

Ivan Provorov’s historically unenviable position

Ivan Provorov’s historically unenviable position

Ivan Provorov is not having a good season, but could the coaching staff do more in helping him try to fix it? When the Flyers drafted Ivan Provorov seventh overall in the 2015 NHL Draft, many fans and media members believed the Flyers had potentially found the homegrown number one defenseman this team has never had in its history. They would have a stalwart around whom they could build a defense corps and no longer have to hope and pray that an established franchise defenseman would become available via free agency or trade. Through his first two NHL seasons, things appeared to be trending...

Discipline, mistakes cost Flyers in deflating loss to Flames

Discipline, mistakes cost Flyers in deflating loss to Flames

The Flyers, inventing new and unique ways to lose since forever. Look we all saw what happened last night, so let’s dive right into what we learned in the Flyers’ latest defeat: a 6-5 overtime loss in Calgary. Snatching defeat from the jaws of victory Any time you turn a two-goal lead with two minutes left in regulation into an overtime loss there are many concerns. But for the Flyers, the collapse didn’t even seem all that surprising given how they skated after grabbing that lead off Sean Couturier’s shorthanded goal. After Couturier gave them what should have been put-away...

I’m not mad, I’m actually laughing

Postgame reaction following a blown third period in Calgary A lead going into the third period? Opening it up to a two-goal difference on a short-handed breakaway by Sean Couturier, holding that lead with 1:09 left in the game? Any normal team would win this in regulation. But not these Flyers. Oh no, they are no normal team. Rasmus Anderson brought the game to 4-3 with 1:08 remaining and Sean Monahan tied it with seven seconds left in regulation. Then our long lost son Johnny Gaudreau won it 35 seconds into overtime, matched up on the first shift with Couturier, Travis Konecny and Ivan...

Flyers lose in typical fashion, blow two goal lead in loss to Flames

Flyers lose in typical fashion, blow two goal lead in loss to Flames

Did we honestly expect anything else? The Flyers blew a late lead (again) and lost in overtime. At least we got that point though, right?! First Period Alright, who had Phil Varone getting the game’s first great scoring chance tonight? The Flyers and Flames started off with a solid pace, and Varone would be the first to get a prime scoring opportunity on a breakaway. Alas, he rang it off the iron. Around the five minute mark of the period, the Flyers would go to the power play on a “slash” (it wasn’t a slash but shh) by Flames captain Mark Giordano. Despite a solid chance by James...

Brent Flahr named Flyers Vice President and Assistant General Manager

Brent Flahr named Flyers Vice President and Assistant General Manager

Moves, baby! It’s still happening, folks! The Flyers are continuing with their housekeeping and it seems their next order of business was hiring a new Assistant GM (and Vice President), after the firing of Chris Pryor a few weeks back. They’ve brought in Brent Flahr for this role, and this doesn’t feel like much of a surprise. There had been a rumor kicking around since, well, last night that Flahr was going to be the one, and he makes sense. He worked with Chuck Fletcher during his time in Minnesota, where he did much of the same work that he’ll be tasked with in Philly. Here’s...
