Philadelphia Flyers News: Regular Season and Preseason Updates
About Philadelphia Flyers
3/4/15: The Philadelphia Flyers have played better lately and could make the playoffs if a few things fall into place. Others are starting to take notice of their climb up the standings, which is a great turnaround from the beginning of the season. Older rookie goaltender Rob Zepp gets a lot of credit here, as he held the team together for the past few weeks. Expect his workload to slow down a bit now that starting goalie Steve Mason is back from injury. Mason may be coming back a bit too early, but the team needs him now more than ever. But if Boston and Florida keep falling, the Flyers do have a shot at a wild card.
2/25/15: The improbable Rob Zepp tour continues for the Philadelphia Flyers. Zepp was only supposed to play one or a few games when he was called up originally, and was sent back to the minors. He got the call again and took the starting job from veteran Ray Emery. Emery is now out for a little while at least with a lower body injury. But Zepp has been playing pretty well. He got two good wins last weekend and the Flyers are 5-1-4 in their last 10 games. A playoff spot is not out of the question, particularly since the Boston Bruins have struggled a lot over the last few weeks.
2/18/15: The Philadelphia Flyers lost a tough one in Columbus last Friday, surrendering a two goal lead to lose in overtime. The night started by the home team Columbus honoring Scott Hartnell for playing in his 1,000th game - over 40 percent of which he played for the Flyers. Wayne Simmons scored twice to get his goal total to 21 on the season. But the Flyers could not hold on and lost 4-3 in overtime, even with a third period lead. There is some good news here, though. Despite the OT loss, it was the eighth consecutive game that Philly has earned at least a point. It may be too little, too late for the Flyers, but they are giving a glimpse of what they could be next season.
2/11/15: Welcome back, Kimmo. Now pack your bags, you have a plane to catch. Okay, so that is not how it really happened, but it could. The good news is that defenseman Kimmo Timonen has been medically cleared to play after suffering from blood clots in his lungs and legs. That ailment threatened to end his career. Now he will work his way back into game shape and try to get a few games in. However, with the Flyers likely not making the playoffs this season, the team may look to move the veteran defenseman to a contender while picking up some prospects and draft picks. At least it looks like Timonen will be able to end his career on his terms.
2/5/15: While the Philadelphia Flyers have struggled for most of the season (though they have looked more energetic lately), one player who has been on fire all season is Jakub Vorecek. Vorecek leads the league in points this season (Patrick Kane of Chicago and Tyler Seguin of Dallas round out the top three). Just to show that it was not a fluke, Vorecek led all players in points in the All Star Game with six (three goals, three assists). That tied Mario Lemieux's record for most points in an All Star Game, which was set way back in 1988. As for the Flyers, they are winning games again, but have a road trip through Washington, Montreal and Columbus coming up.
1/28/15: Now that the All-Star Game is finished and the sights are being set on the stretch run in the NHL, it is interesting to see where teams and players stand. The Flyers are certainly not happy with their 19-22-7 record and need to improve their play on the road. However, the most interesting statistic is that Jakub Voracek leads the NHL in points with 17 goals and 39 assists, good for 56 points. He holds a four point lead over Tyler Seguin of the Dallas Stars. While improbable just a few months ago, there is a good chance the Voracek could win the Art Ross Trophy, which would be a positive note for the team this season.
1/21/15: There is good news and bad news for Philadelphia Flyers defenseman Kimmo Timonen. The good news is that the blood clot in his lungs is gone. The bad news is that he still has a blood clot in his leg, and that may mean the end of his hockey career. Timonen has not played since the playoffs last April and the blood clots were discovered in August. He claims to feel great, but will not risk his long term health and mortality over the clot. The Flyers are short on defensemen this season, but this goes beyond a roster issue. Best of luck to Kimmo has he tries to come back.
1/14/15: Philadelphia cast their lot with goaltender Steve Mason this season, but that has not paid much in the way of wins. Mason has missed almost half of the season with injuries and is only 8-12-6 on the year. It looks like they are going to be without him again for a while. He made a routine save against Boston but came up lame in his right leg. It could be that the puck missed his pad and hit his leg or it could be ligament damage. In any case, the Flyers are relying on veteran Ray Emery again, as they struggle through this disappointing season.
1/7/15: Not much has gone right for the Philadelphia Flyers this season. They have struggled on the ice, cannot keep the puck out of the net and have been beset by a number of injuries, especially on their defensive corps. To make matters worse (and tremendously scary), defenseman Michael Del Zotto took a skate across his face against the Colorado Avalanche last week. Fortunately, it was not too serious, and, in true hockey player fashion, Del Zotto was back on the ice the next period. The Flyers have a nice homestand this week with Washington in town on Thursday and the Boston Bruins visiting on Saturday.
12/3/14: The Philadelphia Flyers are stuck in a tough 2-7-1 stretch at this point, and that has allowed a few Metropolitan rivals to pass them in the standings. While the team may be losing games, head coach Craig Berube has not lost the room. His players are defending him publicly and taking the blame for their poor play. Though Berube has had no problems calling out his players through the media. But the Flyers need help and they are ,rumored to be trying to work something out with the Edmonton Oilers, possibly for Braydon Coburn or David Perron.
11/19/14: Who says that Philadelphia fans do not have love in their hearts? OK, sure. They booed Santa and threw snowballs at him, but that was decades ago and those were Eagles fans. The Flyers fans gave Scott Hartnell a standing ovation when he returned to Philly last week for the first time, now as a member of the Columbus Blue Jackets. The Blue Jackets won the game, snapping a nine game stretch where they went 0-8-1. But it was a nice gesture. The Flyers are at home on Thursday and Saturday to host the Minnesota Wild and Columbus Blue Jackets, respectively. Let's see if there is another standing ovation this time.
11/12/14: The Flyers are livid about a hit from behind from Colorado Avalanche forward Nathan MacKinnon on their Luke Schenn. Schenn hit the boards face first and left with an upper-body injury. MacKinnon was given a five minute major for boarding and the Flyers capitalized on that with two goals en route to a 4-3 win. The Avs say that MacKinnon barely touched Schenn. The Flyers maintain it was a dirty hit. In any case, tempers are brewing between the teams and it will be fun to watch the next time they play each other. Philly has Minnesota and Columbus at home this week (Thursday and Saturday, respectively).
11/5/14: There is no question that the Flyers have questions on defense. Two of their better blueliners are out with injuries: Braydon Coburn and Andrew MacDonald, so they have been forced to reach into the minors for depth - calling up rookie Shayne Gostisbeherer. The Flyers even went to the street, signing veteran free agent Carlo Colaiacovo for depth. Colaiacovo has 401 games and 11 seasons under his belt. He never lived up to the first round draft status (back in 2001) but is a solid defender and will help out the depleted unit in the short term.
10/29/14: The Flyers defense took a big hit last week when both Andrew MacDonald and Braydon Coburn got injured and will be out four weeks. They already lost Kimmo Tinomen, which put them down to only five healthy blueliners. GM Ron Hextall is trying to fill the holes but admits that pickings are pretty slim right now. The Flyers won their second game of the season last week at Pittsburgh and looked better than they had all season. The team is taking a trip down to Florida this week to face the Lightning (10/30) and Panthers (11/1), before coming home to host the Edmonton Oilers on Tuesday, November 4th.
10/22/14: Former Philadelphia Flyers tough guy defenseman Chris Pronger has been named a consultant to the NHL's Department of Player Safety. The irony of the situation is that while Pronger may not have been a dirty player, he certainly was a very physical one who pushed the envelope when he played. Pronger is no longer playing, but is collecting big money from the Flyers still. Several have called this a conflict of interest, but Pronger maintains that he is not the one who will hand out fines or punishments and that he is excused from any issues that involve the Flyers. Philly may wish to get him back as they are winless in their first four games and have surrendered 16 goals. The Flyers are on the road now, but come back for home games against the Red Wings and Kings on Saturday and Tuesday, respectively.
10/8/14: What should one expect from the Philadelphia Flyers this season? There is no doubting that the team has a strong offensive presence, but there is also no question that the defense and goaltending can be suspect. Overall, the defensive pairings are old by NHL standards. They are also new to the club, and there can be a transition period while new guys adapt to the scheme. On top of that, goalie Steve Mason has been both dazzling and frustrating in his career, so there are no expectations that he can simply steal a game. But the Flyers may be among the more entertaining teams, because they can score, and that does build excitement.
10/15/14: The Philadelphia Flyers did not get off to the start they wanted, losing their first two games of the season. The Flyers are moving away from the "Broad Street Bullies" characterization and do not have a designated 'fighter' on their team this year. And that was the doing of GM Ron Hextall - who, ironically, was among the fightingest goalies in history. Hextall believes that the NHL is moving away from fighting and wants to be on the forefront with more speed. We will see how this shakes out for Philly as they have a tough road trip this week that includes games at Dallas, Chicago and Pittsburgh.
10/1/14: The Philadelphia Flyers traditionally put out a good product. Year in and year out, they seem to make the playoffs, and, in the past, have surprised a few teams with how resilient they tend to be in the postseason. In short, they are a "tough out". Expect the same out of Philly this season. The team seems to have taken on GM Ron Hextall's personality of being above average on talent, but overwhelming on toughness and effort. They have a pretty solid offense, but may be looking for a fourth line center now (and the Western Conference shows the importance of having strong play up the middle on all lines) as Ryan White is expected to miss most of the season with a torn pectoral muscle.
3/13/13: An early season slump which saw the Philadelphia Flyers drop six of their first eight games put the team in a big hole and they now find themselves scrambling to get back in contention for the Eastern Conference playoffs. The Flyers did manage to knock off Buffalo the other night, after losing three-straight. A big home and home stretch with the New York Rangers this week should provide some insight on the outlook for the rest of the year. Jakub Voracek has provided some scoring for the Flyers, putting together 29 points via 12 goals and 17 assists, while Claude Giroux has also dished out 17 assists, scoring eight goals himself. Ilya Bryzgalov has had to shoulder much of the goaltending duty this year, starting 25 games and putting together a .899 save percentage. Philly needs some big wins in the coming weeks to get back in the thick of things and make a push for the playoffs. If not, at least the Eagles hired Chip Kelly.
10/4/12: When the lockout started several European born NHL players quickly signed with teams overseas. For the Philadelphia Flyers that included goalie Ilya Bryzgalov who signed with the KHL and CSKA Moskva. He has played in one game so far and allowed four goals and a troublesome save percentage of .867. Flyers fans surely will hope that Bryzgalov is just working out the off season rust and that his numbers will improve by the time he returns to the NHL. As the lockout lingers we are starting to see American and Canadian players head overseas as well. There are rumors that Flyers star Claude Giroux is looking for a team in Sweden to play for.
9/27/12: Philadelphia Flyers much maligned goalie Ilya Bryzgalov has returned to Russia to play hockey during the NHL lockout. Bryzgalov signed a contract with CSKA Moskva to play during the labor dispute. He joins Pavel Datsyuk of the Detroit Red Wings as big named NHL players on the Moskva roster. Bryzgalov has yet to appear in a game on the young KHL season. The Flyers signed Bryzgalov last off season to a huge $5.6 million dollar contract and he had an up and down year. He was pretty good during the regular season but struggled and was inconsistent in the playoffs.
8/16/12: With the possibility of a lock out looming in the NHL many teams have been scrambling to get their top draft picks under contract. The Philadelphia Flyers are among those and were able to lock up their top draft pick Scott Laughton to an entry level contract. The 18 year-old Laughton was the selected with the 20th pick of the first round and Philadelphia is hoping that the center will soon be headed to the NHL. Last season he scored 64 points for the Oshawa Generals of the Ontario Hockey League. If there is a lock out Laughton will most likely return to Oshawa to play.
7/26/12: The Philadelphia Flyers swung for the fences this week as they signed Nashville Predators defenseman Shea Weber to a 14 year, multi-million dollar contract daring the Predators to match. Since Weber was a restricted free agent Nashville could keep him but would have to honor the contract the Flyers worked out. The hockey world watched the drama unfold all week as Nashville took all the time allotted to them before finally matching the offer. Weber would have been a great fit for the Flyers as he is a fierce player who plays the physical game that the Flyers love.
5/3/12: The Flyers won the first game of their second round Stanley Cup Playoff series against the New Jersey Devils in overtime as playoff star Danny Briere scored the game winner. Hoping to ride that momentum into Game 2 the Flyers took an early lead and then quit playing. The Devils turned up the pressure and heavily outshot the Flyers the remainder of the game. They found the back of the net as well as they evened up the series with a 4-1 victory. The best-of-seven now heads to the Garden State for two more games.
4/26/12: The Philadelphia Flyers advanced to the second round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs this week by vanquishing their hated rivals the Pittsburgh Penguins. In Game 6 Flyers star Claude Giroux got them rolling on his first shift when he flattened Penguins captain Sidney Crosby and scored the game's first goal thirty seconds later. It was all Flyers after that as the Penguins spirit was crushed. They await the winner of several Game 7's in the other series this week to see who their second round opponent will be. With some of the upsets that have occurred the Flyers may be moving up to be one of the favorites to win the Stanley Cup.
