Flyers, Wild clinch spots in 2014 playoffs

Apr 8, 2014, 10:10 PM EST

Buffalo Sabres v Philadelphia Flyers Getty Images

When October ended, the Philadelphia Flyers were in a grim place with a new head coach. Now they’re headed to the 2014 playoffs after clinching a postseason berth by hanging on against the Florida Panthers 5-2 on Tuesday.

At different early points in the 2013-14 campaign, the Flyers were 1-7-0 and 4-10-1, but now they find themselves at 41-29-9 with a chance to even gain home-ice advantage in the first round of the playoffs. The New York Rangers won their game as well on Tuesday, and while they have two more points and tiebreaker advantages, Philly could steal things with a game in hand and a strong finish.

Either way, the Flyers shouldn’t be taken lightly, at least as long as they employ a dangerous set of forwards headlined by captain Claude Giroux. Fittingly, Giroux had a strong night for the Flyers, scoring two goals to push his season total to 27. The Flyers also benefited from a strong night from Steve Mason, who stopped 38 out of 40 shots to earn his 33rd win of the season.

The Flyers didn’t take long to celebrate tonight’s success, either:

Update: the Minnesota Wild clinched the top wild card spot with a 4-3 shootout win against the Boston Bruins.

    Giroux with a strong night against the Flyers huh? Must’ve been a hell of a weird game

    • James O'Brien - Apr 8, 2014 at 10:15 PM

      Fixed, thanks.

    • thesportsjudge - Apr 8, 2014 at 11:30 PM

      Funny how I get called out for these….

      • ibieiniid - Apr 9, 2014 at 8:23 AM

        it’s all in the delivery.

  2. girouxsalem89 - Apr 8, 2014 at 10:15 PM

    Boom. Everyone laughed when Giroux said they would make the playoffs, and the captain hath delivered.

    • broadstreetsbaddest88 - Apr 9, 2014 at 1:12 AM

      Where’s joeys dumbass at, I’d love to rub this in his face. It was 5 games into the season an he was saying it was basically impossible to make the playoffs for the flyers sayin do you really think the flyers can get 38 wins to make it cause they need to do this, this and that to make it and there’s no way they’re gonna. Well guess what Joey your idiot and got provin wrong yet again and you know nothing what you talk of. Too all the other idiots on this site too it shows ya to stop following what the first person says on here. Everyone else laughed in the beginning when blues were in discussion for being big contenders and everyone jumped on the islanders bandwagon and everyone doubted the wild. Look how that turned out for ya’s.

      • joey4id - Apr 9, 2014 at 8:15 AM

        Here! And you just did. Congrat to Flyers’ fans for believing and the team for achieving the improbable. Character team indeed.

      • broadstreetsbaddest88 - Apr 9, 2014 at 10:03 AM

        Joey I actually give you alot of credit for comin on here and admitting that. You actually got more balls then these other clowns on here that talk their trash and pull disappearing acts come judgment day. You may drive us nuts but I gotta respect you stickin to your guns for what you believe. Almost makes me fell bad for callin you a dumba**, almost.

  3. macgrubie - Apr 8, 2014 at 10:17 PM

    Great second half of the season. Still don’t want to play the rags in the 1st round…. they’ve just had our number.

    • cofran2004 - Apr 9, 2014 at 11:58 AM

      I don’t really want the rangers to play you either. Tank a little so you get the pens or… something. You’ve had their number, and I’d love to see crosby golfing in a few weeks.

      Also, props to Ty McGinn. Got a goal last night, and hopefully cemented a spot for himself come playoff time. When he was in ADK most of the season, he was probably the easiest guy to talk to on the team, and didn’t let the Yo-Yo act flyers management has been pulling with him bother him. He even told me what I’m doing wrong during a post-game skate with the players with my stride, and I’ve added some nice speed for my men’s league games.

  4. phillyphanatic77 - Apr 8, 2014 at 10:20 PM

    Scary third, but Mason looked excellent. If he can go into the playoffs hot then this team could be dangerous. Anyway feels good to see this club back where they belong… now let’s catch the Rangers. I don’t wanna see game 1 at MSG.

    • cofran2004 - Apr 9, 2014 at 12:00 PM

      Rangers have been supurb on the road. I’d actually prefer they don’t get home ice advantage… they’ve been mediocre at best at home.

      • phillyphanatic77 - Apr 9, 2014 at 12:17 PM

        But I believe the Rangers have struggled recently in Philadelphia, while we all know about the Flyers inability to step up at MSG. It would be so much better for this club to have game 7 at Wells Fargo then have to beat Lundqvist in his own building.

      • cofran2004 - Apr 9, 2014 at 12:38 PM

        True. I think we can both agree we want to avoid each other first round tho. I’d prefer your flyers go take the pens out. The rangers can’t beat them in regulation, it seems like, and the flyers seem to have their number.

  5. capspats - Apr 8, 2014 at 10:21 PM

    …and my caps have all but been eliminated

    • 19to77 - Apr 8, 2014 at 11:46 PM

      Hey, fair credit, they absolutely smoked the Blues tonight. Hard team to dominate, but it was one-sided all night.

  6. prd797 - Apr 8, 2014 at 10:23 PM

    Wow, congrats to both teams! Nice turnaround by the Flyers, I have a feeling they could have a nice campaign. And the Wild likely will get to rough up the Pacific division winner, which will be a fun series to watch.

    Best of luck and I hope both teams give ‘em* hell in the playoffs!

    *(Unless it’s a matchup against the team I support, naturally)

  7. broadstreetbeatdown - Apr 8, 2014 at 10:29 PM

    Wait, wait, wait. The Flyers weren’t supposed to make the post season. We were supposed to trade Giroux, Couts, Simmonds and Schenn for a bag of pucks. We were supposed to fire Homer and Chief. Ed Snyder was supposed to drop dead of a myocardial infarction……Anyone hungry for some crow right now?

    • 19to77 - Apr 8, 2014 at 11:51 PM

      Look, the improbable comeback is undeniably impressive. I’ll gladly admit I didn’t expect it, it was against steep odds and the team looks great now. The firesale calls were premature. But let’s be fair, even Flyers fans had started calling for heads to roll 20 games into the season. It was just brutal to watch. Huge credit to Giroux for leading the charge back into relevance. He won’t be considered for the Hart this year, not with Crosby over the 100-point mark, but he probably should be. Guy gives it all every night.

      • broadstreetbeatdown - Apr 9, 2014 at 1:46 AM

        I know one Flyers fan who wasn’t calling for heads to roll.

        The fact that Crosby is over a hundred points should not factor too much into the Hart race. Once Giroux recovered from his injury he put this team on his shoulders and carried them into the playoffs. Its never solely on the Captain to carry the team but G sure as hell was the driving force behind the turnaround.

      • Hockeyfan - Apr 9, 2014 at 6:16 AM

        While this was a good turn around, it doesn’t make Giroux the MVP by any means. Crosby has lead not only in points but throughout the season while his team around him was a constant rotation of minor league players. Crosby wins the Hart.

    • Hockeyfan - Apr 9, 2014 at 6:20 AM

      And you just have to enjoy that fact that any post with the Flyers results in a discussion about the Pens and Crosby. Flyers fans are always looking west.

      • ibieiniid - Apr 9, 2014 at 8:33 AM

        19to77 brought Crosby up…

      • hockey412 - Apr 9, 2014 at 9:05 AM

        Yeah, I’m all for leaving Crosby and the Pens out of this one, too. Hoping the Rags can win that series, lard knows my heart can’t take another playoff series against the Flyers. Especially not the way they have been playing since the break.

      • ibieiniid - Apr 9, 2014 at 9:11 AM

        lol “lard knows.” funny typo.

      • hockey412 - Apr 9, 2014 at 9:35 AM

        Nah I’d rather use “gad” or “lard”…while I love offending people I don’t like to do it on a religious level and lard knows I don’t need any more bad karma than I already bring upon myself haha

      • ibieiniid - Apr 9, 2014 at 9:46 AM

        while the fact that you enjoy offending people about real world things and avoid offending people about conceivably fake things bothers me, I may start using “lard” now.

  8. antmel30 - Apr 8, 2014 at 11:05 PM

    Toilet where is the stamp on flyers missing playoffs. Suck it

    • laxman1944 - Apr 9, 2014 at 8:46 AM

      Toilet = Flush

    • ibieiniid - Apr 9, 2014 at 9:33 AM

      ” flyers wont make the playoffs this year mark my words. They are just not a good team this year.”

      -toiletclown from January

      that wasn’t the only time he told us to mark his words either. google just isn’t helping me find the other ones.

    • cofran2004 - Apr 9, 2014 at 12:04 PM

      god i love when that waste of skin is wrong. I hope he drowned himself in his clown-toilet.

      • phillyphanatic77 - Apr 9, 2014 at 1:08 PM

        I think every fan who’s ever glanced at the PHT boards share this sentiment. We wanna talk hockey and all he does is blindly attack opposing teams, primarily the Flyers.

  9. nicofthenorthstar - Apr 8, 2014 at 11:07 PM

    Bryz!

    • broadstreetbeatdown - Apr 8, 2014 at 11:22 PM

      Last time I checked, Bryz is playing well for the Wild.

      • thesportsjudge - Apr 8, 2014 at 11:32 PM

        Isn’t the article about Minnesota also, or was it an “updated” story?

      • broadstreetbeatdown - Apr 8, 2014 at 11:33 PM

        Nope, just responding to the north star super fan.

      • thesportsjudge - Apr 8, 2014 at 11:40 PM

        Fair enough.

  10. getadealdonealready - Apr 8, 2014 at 11:40 PM

    Nice Win Wild!

  11. rgledz - Apr 8, 2014 at 11:46 PM

    This article epitomizes the garbage that is east coast bias. The entire thing is written about Philly……and oh by the way the Wild clinched a spot too. Well done Mr. O’Brian. You should just sneak posts about western conference teams in the comment section going forward. They don’t take up much space and it leaves more time to articles east coast teams.

    • narfmoo12 - Apr 8, 2014 at 11:55 PM

      Waaaaaaaaaaahhhhh!!!!

    • fortarnold - Apr 9, 2014 at 12:03 AM

      You must be new to this site or just ignore the comments section. It caters to the east coast and Pennsylvania in particular. Look at the responses that articles about the Flyers and Penguins generate compared to other teams. If an article goes up about Claude Giroux having red hair or Sydney Crosby sharting, the comment section fills up. If an article goes up about Zach Parisse scoring nine goals in a single game you may get 10 comments and probably 4 of them would be Flyers and Penguins fans arguing.

      • hockey412 - Apr 9, 2014 at 9:06 AM

        As it should be.

      • cofran2004 - Apr 9, 2014 at 12:06 PM

        Okay okay… but what about the fact that when they DO post topics about west coast teams, theres like…. 7 comments at most, and its usually just people agreeing with each other? They post what the demand is for. Get over it.

    • phillyphanatic77 - Apr 9, 2014 at 1:28 AM

      This article was originally only about the Flyers when it was first published. Then much later they decided to add the little blib/change the headline about the Wild also clinching. It’s lazy, as they should’ve just produced another article about Minnesota, but that’s why it focuses so much on Philly. It was a 100% Flyers article at the start.

  12. mcphillthy - Apr 8, 2014 at 11:53 PM

    This was a massive turnaround. Congrats to chief for making this happen. He sold his system to the players and they bought into it. Well done boys

    • toiletclown - Apr 9, 2014 at 6:32 AM

      You saying chief makes me feel super bad for you, you must have a sad sad home life.

      • philafly - Apr 9, 2014 at 7:55 AM

        Yet you call James Neal “Nealer”, which has a hilarious and fitting second meaning.

      • mcphillthy - Apr 9, 2014 at 7:59 AM

        That coming from a guy named toiletclown? Lol! Next….

      • dmacirish - Apr 9, 2014 at 8:01 AM

        i’m pretty certain that mcphillthy was referencing Craig Berube’s nickname “Chief” which comes from his Indian heritage. not sure why you would feel bad for him.

      • toiletclown - Apr 9, 2014 at 8:31 AM

        What do you people think, your these players and coaches best friend? The one that makes me laugh the most and stamps you Philthies as the true anus of PA is the “Coots” reference. It’s hard to even look at on here it gives me and everyone in Pitt douche chills. I guess that’s why Philly people have the reputation for being brainless criminals.

      • ibieiniid - Apr 9, 2014 at 8:37 AM

        it’s like…. if you’re gonna troll, at least be funny about it. you say nothing. and that nothing isn’t funny. what are you worth, toiletclown? hell, you don’t even know your/you’re yet.

    fair dues but then wild would have to be flawed somehow … as fans we tend to pounce on conceits and vanities and imperfections in our rivals

    all in good fun of course

    i recall the wild generated some pretty good debate last season … a fair amount of abuse was bandied in both directions

    wild supporters in these boards tend toward politeness … no buzz given non generated … get in there and seed other debates with trash-talkin’ wild chat … it’ll come back in kind

    were i a blogger taking a slice of hits on advertising linked to my articles i’d be following the fan base more likely to generate commentary and hits on embedded video

    Making the playoffs is like winning the cup for you bred losers. Welcome to the big league girls. Your short time with us will be surely entertaining.

    • bp - Apr 9, 2014 at 7:09 AM

      yeah its not like the Flyers have made the playoffs 17 times in the last 19 seasons or anything.

    • philafly - Apr 9, 2014 at 7:56 AM

      What’s a bred loser?

      • toiletclown - Apr 9, 2014 at 8:40 AM

        Being born into a city that is irrelevant in all aspects of competition. Your poor ancestors made a huge mistake by settling in Philadelphia instead of taking their lazy butts 5 more hours west where the word “winner” runs through our blood. Maybe a time machine is in our future for you?

    • goodolejr - Apr 9, 2014 at 1:01 PM

      Probably just as entertaining as the last time the Flyers were in the playoffs. You remember, right? The time they knocked the “Stanley Cup favorites” out in the first round? Boy was THAT sure a short time to be in the playoffs, especially when you’re the favorite to win it all.

      Oh and by “bred losers,” I think you mean “loyal fans.” See we hate losing as much as the next guy, but we still support our teams in the end when they lose for extended periods of time. I don’t remember the last time the league had to step in and save the Flyers from bankruptcy.

      • toiletclown - Apr 9, 2014 at 3:16 PM

        What was really entertaining was when the Devils completely embarrassed the flygirls in 5 games round 2. What a disgrace of a hockey team they were and still are. And I got to watch a slow Flyers fan take the loss and cry like a baby. Have a nice day!

  16. 7mantel - Apr 9, 2014 at 7:07 AM

    Congrats Flyer fans see you at MSG next week !

  17. antmel30 - Apr 9, 2014 at 7:45 AM

    Toilet you are crazy. It’s rare for the flyers not to be in the playoffs you know nothing dope. Other than the wings the flyers have been to playoffs more than any other team in last 20 yrs. It’s more common for the Pens to miss playoffs than the flyers. Our comments about being happy for the flyers making the playoffs comes from all the people like you that said enjoy your crappy season or the flyers are not making the playoffs stamp it was your genius quote. Philly knows they didn’t win cup yet. What do you think we are pens fans who are always happy being paper champs and acting like they already won cup because the are 1st place in regular season. You are truly a fair weather fan and know nothing about hockey.

    • toiletclown - Apr 9, 2014 at 7:52 AM

      Like I said before, you chumps haven’t sniffed the cup in 39 years so making it to the playoffs is the only thing you can hold your head up for. Meanwhile everyone else is the world knows that the Flyers are a giant joke year in and year out. Failure each and every season, no wonder why the suicide rate in Philly is the highest its been in 39 years.

      • laxman1944 - Apr 9, 2014 at 11:36 AM

        Toilet……what happened??

        Seriously…..what happened???

        You literally spew NOTHING but venom and your blind hatred for Philadelphia is really just sad.

        Have a nice day in the misery you live in day in and day out.

    • whammy71 - Apr 9, 2014 at 1:12 PM

      nah – its all good! Flyers have been pretty impressive since their crappy start. And their Captain leads on and off the ice.

      Pens are my team…and I’ll never change. I’ll always want and expect them to win…but they are a flawed bunch right now. We’ll see what happens in the post season.

      I don’t want to see the Flyers or the Bruins. I’m actually hoping that somehow…Flyers fall to 8th and play the Bs. That would eliminate 1 of the 2 right there. I wouldn’t even care which one advances….just as long as one goes home.

  19. flyboystransport - Apr 9, 2014 at 9:24 AM

    Anyone with toilet in their handle cant be taken seriously. Good for the flyboys after the horrible start and coaching change

  20. kastout11 - Apr 9, 2014 at 9:29 AM

    I don’t know why people even respond to toiletclown. He is an idiot who obviously knows nothing about the sport, and spends all his time trolling on Philly message boards because he has nothing better to do with his pathetic existence. Enough about him, nice turnaround this year for Philly. I give a ton of credit to Berube. I think Lavi is a good coach, but I am not sure the Flyers would have come around they way they did had he been the coach. Personally, I don’t want to see Boston is the 1st round, and I don’t feel great about the odds of Philly beating Lundqvist and the Rangers either. I would like to see another Philly/Pittsburgh series, primarily because I think Philly will beat Pittsburgh. Philly does not match up well against the Rangers, and Philly matches up great against Pittsburgh, and Marc Andre is not a big time goalie anymore. I can certainly live with another Pittsburgh/Philly playoff series.

    • macgrubie - Apr 9, 2014 at 10:07 AM

      agreed. the old “don’t feed the troll” mantra applies. Stop talking to this idiot!

  21. antmel30 - Apr 9, 2014 at 10:29 AM

    Toilet you call your goalie flower and talk about our nicknames. Is there a worst nickname in nhl than flower. Also flyers have been to finals 4 times since 75 so your they have not sniffed a cup in 39 yrs is incorrect. Man you are a retard. They have not won a cup in 39 yrs but 4 finals in 39 yrs is definitely grounds for sniffing cup dope.

    Joey4 thanks for classy comments. At least your bias can be out aside and u give credit when credit is due.

    • toiletclown - Apr 9, 2014 at 11:37 AM

        Seriously Pens/Steelers fans live in western and central PA and you wanna make jokes about trailer parks in the greater Philadelphia area?! Dude open your eyes, you’re probably sitting in a trailer right now next your mom/sister and dad/brother. I’m sure living in a squalid hellhole with sibling-parents can’t be easy so I get why you wanna end it. But seriously man, Pittsburgh is a truckstop for people coming from the east coast metropolis of Philadelphia, Washington, New York, and Boston on their way to another real city like Chicago. Yins can keep your little “city” and the bandwagon fans (mostly) who inhabit it.

        Don’t hate on half a state just because of this troll…it brings you down to his level.
        Just continue to point out that this guy has no class, no character, no substance, and from what I can see…no point.

    Whew! I don’t have to eat my hat! I believe I told every doubter and (understandably) panicking Flyer fan during their early season slump this team was too good to miss the playoffs. I’m a firm believer that hockey is better when the Flyers are a good, competitive team. Congrats guys!

    I’m shocked that this justifies getting your name in the headline of an article;

    “Update: the Minnesota Wild clinched the top wild card spot with a 4-3 shootout win against the Boston Bruins.”

    You couldn’t take 5 minutes to write a quick game summary and find a tweet about the Wild to post? Very lazy here on PHT, disappointing.

    It is shocking, but without Bryzgalov, I don’t think the Wild would have made the playoffs. I think Bryzy is proving that he is a good goaltender, but just could not handle the pressure of playing in Philadelphia when he was perceived to be the missing ingredient to them winning the Stanley Cup. He seems to thrive in small market cities.
