  1. Will Quenneville stick with his line changes?

    Jun 5, 2010, 10:30 AM EDT

    I can understand Joel Quenneville’s stubbornness. After all, they’ve been so successful all season and for the entire run of the playoffs and there’s no way that Patrick Kane and Jonathan Toews would continue to struggle together. Yet for the first three games, the top line of Kane, Toews and Byfuglien weren’t just ineffective —…

  2. 2010 Stanley Cup Finals, Game 4: Michael Leighton growing more confident

    Jun 5, 2010, 9:00 AM EDT

    I can forgive him the two goals in the third period. One came on a dastardly tip-in on a 5-on-3 and the other was a fluky, bouncing goal that careened off two players and over his pad. Until that point in the game, and even after the Chicago Blackhawks had pulled within 4-3 late in…

    Philadelphia Flyers 5, Chicago Blackhawks 3 Series tied 2-2 Despite how the rest of the team has been playing, if the Philadelphia Flyers had any hope of tying this series and eventually going on to win the Stanley Cup, then they would need their captain to step up and raise the level of his game.…

  4. Flyers fight off late surge, tie series 2-2 with 5-3 win

    Jun 4, 2010, 11:15 PM EDT

    It’s almost as if Game 4 was like a road trip in which a middle aged man tries to drive for 16 hours in one bladder-shredding sitting. Everything was under control for the Philadelphia Flyers, until all of a sudden the game veered off into a very, very dangerous direction. Philadelphia held on, though, and…

  6. Both teams sleepwalk through second, Flyers still up 3-1

    Jun 4, 2010, 10:08 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    Eh, what a lame second period. The Flyers, honestly, weren’t all that amazing in the middle frame but maybe they can sense that the Blackhawks are barely even in the building. The one thing that stands out, though, is that while Chicago is flat, it seems like the officials are truly putting their whistles away.…

  7. Flyers race ahead of sloppy Blackhawks 3-1 in first

    Jun 4, 2010, 9:10 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    Who are these Chicago Blackhawks? Look, I know that the Philadelphia Flyers are on fire right now, but it’s still pretty stunning to see what went on in the first period of this game. Philly is up 3-1 in the first period, and honestly, that score is more than fair considering how much better they’ve…

  8. 2010 Stanley Cup Finals, Game 4: Ville Leino leaves with injury

    Jun 4, 2010, 8:40 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    He’s been the surprise of the postseason fort he Flyers, and one of the main reasons the team has been so successful without their top line performing. Yet there’s some bad news coming, potentially. The Flyers were in the midst of a nifty transition from defense through the neutral zone, when Brian Campbell caught Leino…

  9. 2010 Stanley Cup Finals, Game 4: Hawks talk about 3rd period struggles

    Comments Off

    The Chicago Blackhawks may be leading this series 2-1, with a good chance to head back to Chicago with a chance to clinch the Stanley Cup, but the Philadelphia Flyers have the momentum. After walking away from a sloppy Game 1 confident that they can keep up with the talented and deep Blackhawks, the Flyers…

  10. City of Glendale to discuss Phoenix Coyotes sale this afternoon

    The Phoenix Coyotes ownership situation keeps limping its way to the finish line. Today could mark a step in the right direction – or at least in the area of an actual decision – as Coyotes blogger Travis Hair of Five for Howling shares the latest news on the process. Hair mentions that the Glendale…

  11. Flyers 'flash mob' won't be much of a mob, blogger says

    Jun 4, 2010, 5:00 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    A few moments ago, I discussed rumors of Flyers fans forming a “flash mob.” In the final paragraph, I wondered if the movement would fall flat like the weak “Fire Sather” rally among New York Rangers fans. It looks like that instinct was dead-on, at least according to one reliable Flyers blogger. Travis Hughes of…

  12. Are Flyers fans going to harass the Blackhawks with a 'flash mob'?

    Jun 4, 2010, 4:30 PM EDT

    Philadelphia is a city with quite the … rowdy sports reputation. It’s unfair to allow a few bad apples soil the bunch/other cliche, but history keeps repeating itself in Cream Cheese Land. Fair or not, few American fan bases see this level of regular hooliganism. Take, for instance, this story floated by Frank Seravali from…

  13. 2010 Stanley Cup Finals, Game 4: Which team is feeling the pressure?

    Jun 4, 2010, 4:15 PM EDT

    Judging by some of the questions the players are being asked, combined with the overall atmosphere that exists today around the Wachovia Center, and you would think the Flyers were the ones with the lead in this series. The Flyers have been able to keep winning on the strength of their resiliency and ability to…

  14. Broken foot shouldn't keep John Tavares out of training camp

    Jun 4, 2010, 3:30 PM EDT

    John Tavares put up a great performance for Canada under the dull spotlight of the 2010 IIHF World Championships, but the tournament wasn’t all good for the future of the New York Islanders. He ended up breaking his foot during the competition but fought through the pain in the team’s final three games. The good…

  15. 2010 Stanley Cup Finals, Game 4: Flyers mum on van Riemsdyk's status

    Jun 4, 2010, 2:59 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    Seeing the demeanor of both James van Riemsdyk and Dan Carcillo after this morning skate — combined with the fact that Carcillo was benched in the third period Wednesday night — speculation was fueled that JVR would be back in the lineup tonight. Just don’t ask Peter Laviolette about it. “Good try. We don’t talk…

  16. 2010 Stanley Cup Finals, Game 4: Flyers not worried about top line's struggles

    Jun 4, 2010, 2:27 PM EDT

    Comments Off

    The top line of the Philadelphia Flyers have not had a good series against the Hawks, but the rest of the team isn’t really all that worried about it. After all, the Flyers survived until the third round without leading scorer Jeff Carter. Simon Gagne’s return in the second round helped spark the Flyers’ historic…

  17. Scott Hartnell: Beating Dustin Byfuglien at his own game

    Jun 4, 2010, 1:30 PM EDT

    Going into the Stanley Cup finals, one of the most-hyped matchups was Dustin Byfuglien vs. Chris Pronger (hey, we hyped it up on Pro Hockey Talk, too). Of course, there was that one nagging problem: Byfuglien can be a bit, um, flighty. If the Philadelphia Flyers have their own hot-and-cold answer to Byfuglien, it’s the…

  18. USA Hockey honors Ryan Miller, Brian Burke

    Jun 4, 2010, 12:30 PM EDT

    With all due respect to Patrick Kane and Brian Rafalski, no two people contributed more to American hockey in the last season than goalie Ryan Miller and executive Brian Burke. It shouldn’t be too surprising, then, that USA Hockey is honoring both at its President’s Awards Dinner on June 12, part of its 2010 Annual…

  19. Reflecting on Ron MacLean's Good Samaritan moment

    Jun 4, 2010, 11:50 AM EDT

    In case you missed yesterday’s news, CBC personality Ron MacLean helped save a man from drowning (our own Joe Yerdon shared his thoughts/jokes here). The initial mental image is a little misleading, or at least it was in my head, as I imagined some Superman scenario in which MacLean did it all by himself ……

  20. 2010 Stanley Cup Finals, Game 4: Will Carcillo be a scratch?

    Jun 4, 2010, 11:29 AM EDT

    Coach Peter Laviolette put Dan Carcillo into the lineup in Game 2 in an effort to give his team an infusion of energy and physicality early in the game. After Carcillo spent the first period going absolutely crazy on the ice, including one heck of a hit on his own teammate, he was limited in…
