Simmonds is coming off back-to-back two-goal performances and leads the NHL with...

Weekly Fantasy Stud: Giroux

There were a number of big weeks in fantasy hockey last week from players across the NHL, including Chad Johnson, Ryan Kesler and Mike Hoffman. From hat tricks to shutouts, fantasy owners were biting at the bit to get some of these players on their roster.

What’s Working for the Flyers

For the first time since 2014, when Craig Berube was still the Philadelphia Flyers’ coach and Kimmo Timonen was an alternate captain, the team is on a five-game winning streak. After an inconsistent start to the first month-and-a-half of the season, the Flyers have turned a corner. Up to this current stretch, their only win streak was a three-game run over the transition from October...

Flyers Hitting Their Stride

For most of the 2016-17 season, the Philadelphia Flyers have been a Jekyll and Hyde kind of team. Plagued by spotty goaltending and shaky team defense, the Flyers could never muster more than a few wins in a row, mostly trading a win one night for a loss the next. However, over the last couple weeks that shaky defense and spotty goaltending have come around and have contributed to...

Eric Lindros Changed Philadelphia Hockey Forever

I debated for a long time about how to write this piece. As a journalist you never want to include yourself in the article. And ideally, you’d like it to be free of bias (looking at you, Breitbart). After mulling it over, I decided the only fair way to produce this piece was to write it with the same joyful enthusiasm I felt 18 years ago. As a fan of hockey. As a fan of the Philadelphia...

Flyers GM asked Eric Lindros to come out of retirement in 2012

Eric Lindros’ storied career was cut down by injuries, but if former Philadelphia Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren had his way, Lindros wouldn’t have exited the league so soon. After spending nearly a decade and a half in the NHL, Lindros retired in 2006-2007 at the age of 34. The former first overall pick was plagued with concussion injuries, so the early retirement didn’t...

WATCH: Claude Giroux makes Jaroslav Halak look silly in the shootout

Jaroslav Halak is reportedly on the trading block following comments from his agent, but his trade value may have taken a small step back when teams see how badly he was undressed by Claude Giroux in the shootout. At first, it looked like Halak had Giroux figured out, but soon it became clear Halak was completely bested. That’s just a filthy move.

Watch: Flyers’ Radko Gudas had one of the best, most unique assists of the year

Radko Gudas could have a pretty decent career as a goalie if his current role as a defenseman for the Philadelphia Flyers doesn’t work out. The Flyers were trailing 4-2 in the second period to the Pittsburgh Penguins and were in the final few seconds of a power play when the Penguins made a final effort to clear their zone. Gudas kept the puck in the attacking zone three separate...

Sam Gagner scores a goal so dirty you’ll need to take a shower afterwards

Yes, it is the preseason. That doesn’t mean that some highlights are already in mid-season form. When you are a human highlight reel like Sam Gagner, the preseason is never an excuse. The man just scores beautiful shootout goals. Last night against the Bruins, he gave us all a goal so nice, you have to view it twice. Pfft. He made it look easy, too! If Gagner’s first two games...

Philadelphia Flyers defenseman Shayne Gostisbehere is pretty lucky to have escaped a serious injury after a skate blade caught him on the face during his team’s matchup against the LA Kings.

Video: Jakub Voracek skates through the Rangers to win it in OT

Hockey is most certainly a team game, but sometimes a great individual effort can completely overtake an opponent and decide the result. Such was the case when Jakub Voracek skated around all three Rangers on the ice in OT and sent Flyers fans home happy. That’s an incredible individual effort. It may just be the preseason, but Rangers fans aren’t going to be happy with how...
