  • This Day In Sports History (April 11th) — Ron Hextall

    This Day In Sports History (April 11th) — Ron Hextall

    It was on this day in 1989 that Ron Hextall became the first goalie in NHL history to record a goal during a playoff game.  It was the second goal of his career. The goal came during an 8-5 playoff victory over the Washington Capitals.  Despite finishing in first place in the Patrick Division, the […]

  • Stat Line of the Night – 12/19/2013 – Claude Giroux

    Stat Line of the Night – 12/19/2013 – Claude Giroux

    After getting out to a slow start this season, it appears as though Claude Giroux has finally found his form. The Philadelphia Flyers’ star forward was riding a four-game point streak heading into last night’s contest against the Columbus Blue Jackets, and he extended that streak to five games by recording two goals and two […]

    Rangers’ Marc Staal Takes a Slap Shot to the Face (Video)

    Every player in the NHL knows that the possibility of taking a puck to the face is something that simply comes with the territory of playing the game they love for a living.  But that doesn’t make it any less painful or horrifying when it does happens.  For proof, look no further than last night’s […]

    Stat Line of the Night — 2/20/2013 — Jakub Voracek

    Last night’s game between the Philadelphia Flyers and the Pittsburgh Penguins featured several of hockey’s biggest superstars, like Sidney Crosby, Evgeni Malkin and Claude Giroux.  However, on this occasion, no player’s star was shining brighter than that of Flyers forward, Jakub Voracek. During what was expected to be a high-scoring affair between these two in-state rivals, Voracek […]

    Max Talbot Can Do A One-Finger Push-Up (Video)

    While some players have taken the trip overseas in order to stay sharp during the NHL lockout, the Philadelphia Flyers’ Max Talbot has been taking a much different approach towards keeping himself prepared for a possible return to the ice. Sure, Talbot’s workouts may not look like anything you’ve ever seen during a hockey player’s […]

    Ilya Bryzgalov’s Give-Away Leads To Series-Losing Goal (Video)

    It would be great to have a few beers with Philadelphia Flyers goalie Ilya Bryzgalov. I mean, there aren’t many hockey players who are experts on Russian liqueurs, endangered species, and Chinese law. And I’d dare to guess that there even fewer hockey players who like to wax philosophic on mankind’s place in the cosmos […]

    Flyers Players Celebrate Playoff Victory At Nickleback Concert (Video)

    People often tell me, “you learn something new every day.”  Interestingly enough, today I feel as though I have learned at least three new things after watching this video of the Philadelphia Flyers players handing out beers and shooting t-shirt cannons on stage during a Nickleback concert at the Wells Fargo Center last night. First, […]
