Preview: Flyers head to the State of Hockey for matchup against Wild

Photo by Bruce Kluckhohn/NHLI via That’s wild. The Philadelphia Flyers (20-21-8) embark on a two-game road trip to end the month of January and head into the all-star break. They start in America way up north against the Minnesota Wild (25-17-4). This Wild team has just been kicked out of the third spot in their division by the Colorado Avalanche, who, despite having some injury problems, have made their way back into the playoff picture. The Flyers? Well, they’re still at the bottom of the Metropolitan Division. These two teams are oddly similar in their last 10...

Pacioretty re-injures Achilles, more than likely to miss remainder of season

Photo by Jaylynn Nash/ Just two weeks after returning to game action following a lengthy recovery from surgery to repair the torn Achilles, Pacioretty re-injured it Thursday night against the Minnesota Wild. In a brutal turn of events, it was confirmed that Max Pacioretty tore his right Achilles tendon — the same one that he had torn four months prior during offseason training — after the team announced he was put on IR Friday night. While the writing was on the wall following the grim mood in Carolina’s locker room Thursday night, an MRI Friday confirmed that the...

Canes’ victory spoiled as Pacioretty exits with final-minute injury

Photo by Josh Lavallee/NHLI via What should have been an exuberant celebration thanks to a 5-2 win and multiple new career highs being set, quickly turned grim as the veteran winger left with a bad-looking injury. Thursday night at PNC Arena should have capped off with an uproar from the stands that carried a blissful buzz throughout the locker room, but despite a 5-2 thrashing of the Minnesota Wild, the Carolina Hurricanes demeanor was grim.

Quick Whistles: Vancouver Loss, Sebastian Aho, and Injuries

Photo by Josh Lavallee/NHLI via The Hurricanes couldn’t hold it together late against the Canucks, and now they’ll aim to bounce back against the Wild. It was a much more productive week for the Carolina Hurricanes, who collected two wins in three tries to end their four-game losing streak, but the way it ended via a 4-3 shootout loss to the Vancouver Canucks was a sour note to enter a three-day break on. The Hurricanes managed to pick up five of a possible six points after ending their skid, though, a string of movement in the standings that is responsible for...

In the rematch the Rocket were now without Jesse Ylönen, Rem Pitlick, and Rafaël Harvey-Pinard who were called up due to the injury crisis in Montreal. That meant the Rocket were down to the bare minimum of available players...
