    Flyers Mock The Lightning’s Defensive Trap (Video)

    No one is a fan of the 1-3-1 neutral zone trap in hockey.  Not the fans.  Not the media.  And certainly not the Philadelphia Flyers.  That was evident during last night’s game between the Flyers and the Tampa Bay Lightning, as it didn’t take long for the trap to take over. Less than one minute […]

    Hockey players wear helmets for protection, but Patrick Kaleta of the Buffalo Sabres has a knack for using his as a weapon. He has done it in the past, headbutting members of the opposition on two separate occasions last season.  He was at it once again last night, as he drove his head into the […]

    Ilya Bryzgalov: “I’m Terrible And I Have Zero Confidence” (Video)

    While every member of the media appreciates a player who gives their honest opinion during an interview, I am quite certain that the last thing any goaltender’s teammates would want to hear is their $5.67-million netminder admit that he is terrible and has zero confidence. After last night’s game, Philadelphia Flyers goalie Ilya Bryzgalov did […]

    Stat Line Of The Night — 10/12/11 — Claude Grioux

    After recording 76 points in 82 games last season, Claude Giroux entered the 2011-12 NHL season with some awfully high expectations.  Those expectations were so high that Flyers GM Paul Holmgren figured he could afford to trade away superstar forwards Mike Richards and Jeff Carter in the off-season in order to upgrade in goal. It […]

    Here Is A Look At The 2012 Winter Classic Promo (Video)

    The Winter Classic has become a staple on the NHL’s regular season calendar, and that notion has only been furthered by HBO’s  24/7 documentary, which was introduced prior to last year’s meeting between the Pittsburgh Penguins and the Washington Capitals. This season the cameras will be following the players and coaches of the New York […]

    Listen To Sean Avery Threaten Claude Giroux’s Life (Video)

    Sean Avery wasn’t happy about something during last night’s game between the New York Rangers and the Philadelphia Flyers.  Perhaps it had something to do with Flyers’ forward Wayne Simmonds directing a homophobic slur at him.  Or maybe it was because he had just watched two of his teammates get victimized by hits-from-behind from the […]

    An ugly incident unfolded last night in London, Ontario as an entertaining game between the Philadelphia Flyers and the Detroit Red Wings ended on a sour note when a fan inside the John Labatt Center threw a banana onto the ice during Wayne Simmons’ shootout attempt.

    We are only a few days into the NHL pre-season and the league already has its first disciplinary hearing scheduled, thanks the Jody Shelley.  The Philadelphia Flyers’ tough guy was assessed a major penalty for boarding and a game misconduct after he leveled Darryl Boyce of the Toronto Maple Leafs from behind during an exhibition […]

    Picture Of The Day: The Always Reliable Wikipedia…

    Most of us are well aware of the fact that Brian Boucher is a below average NHL goaltender (one of many on the Philadelphia Flyers), who practically cost his team a shot at the Stanley Cup after allowing a total of 12 goals in three starts during the Flyers’ second round series against the Boston […]

    Bruins’ Adam McQuaid Misses Check, Falls Face First Into Boards (Video)

    Late in the first period of Game 2 last night between the Boston Bruins and the Philadelphia Flyers, the Bruins’ Adam McQuaid attempted to plant an elbow into the head of Flyers’ forward Mike Richards.  He would miss on his attempted elbow and justice would be served only milliseconds later, as an off-balanced McQuaid would […]

    The Philadelphia Flyers traveled to Buffalo’s HSBC Arena last night for Game Three of their best-of-seven series against the Sabres.  With this series looking like it could be a long one, Flyers’ forward Scott Hartnell decided not to waste any time getting acquainted with the Sabres’ fans.

    We Almost Had A Second Girl-On-Girl Kiss Cam Moment (Video)

    Earlier this week we shared with you an epic moment in sports history when two females were caught exchanging saliva on the Oklahoma City Thunder’s Kiss Cam.  It was what we believed to be the first girl-on-girl Kiss Cam moment at a sporting event, and we almost had our second during a regular season game […]

    Jhonas Enroth did a great job in goal for the Buffalo Sabres down the final stretch of the regular season, but this is Ryan Miller’s team, and he show us all why with an incredible performance during Game One of their best-of-seven opening round series against the Philadelphia Flyers.
