Flyers Can’t Afford To Trade Goalie

Ask any NHL fan some of the historic traits of the Philadelphia Flyers and two of the top answers will be toughness – on the border of goonery – and a lack of goaltending. However, the 2016-17 Flyers aren’t showing the latter trait with Steve Mason and Michal Neuvirth in net. For the first time in a long time, the Flyers have one of the top goaltending duos in the league. Steve...

Flyers Defense Lacking to Start Season

One of the positives coming into training camp and throughout the preseason for the Philadelphia Flyers is the transformation of the defense in head coach Dave Hakstol’s second season. With the return of Micheal Del Zotto from last year’s season-ending injury, the emergence of Shayne Gostisbehere and the addition of the reigning CHL defenceman of the year Ivan Provorov, the Flyers...

50 years of Flyers fight. — Philadelphia Flyers (@NHLFlyers) October 21, 2016 I’m pretty sure this is yet another video the Flyers played before the game last night, but this one wasn’t shown on CSN, which opted for either Pregame Live or Jim Jackson walking around in an orange jacket.

50 years of Flyers history archived inside arena

PHILADELPHIA (AP) Ed Snider created a Philadelphia Flyers franchise stocked with so many great moments, all it takes is a simple crane of the neck toward the banners hanging from the rafters to rekindle 50 years of memories.

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...

Watch: Flyers defenseman Shayne Gostisbehere takes a skate blade to the face

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...

Ilya Bryzgalov returns to Twitter to poke fun at Flyers defense

Ilya Bryzgalov hadn’t posted on Twitter since May, but his tweet on Monday afternoon made up for the prolonged absence. Bryzgalov tweeted out an autographed picture of three Penguins players (Sidney Crosby included) against him with no defense to be found when he played for the Philadelphia Flyers.
