A lack of toughness doesn’t explain the Sedin twins’ Stanley Cup finals struggles. Instead, it’s an abundance of a tough minutes against Zdeno Chara and the tough task of beating Tim Thomas that stands in their way.
Jun 3, 2011, 9:03 PM EDT
The Flyers elected not to re-sign goalie prospect Joacim Eriksson today. This will be surprising news to many since he was once considered the top goalie in the team’s farm system.
May 29, 2011, 9:21 PM EDT
Flyers GM Paul Holmgren wouldn’t get into specifics about how the team will improve its goaltending while remaining under the salary cap. Interestingly enough, he didn’t totally shoot down the possibility of trading Jeff Carter, either.
May 12, 2011, 6:09 PM EDT
The Flyers announced that Chris Pronger, Kris Versteeg and Michael Leighton underwent successful surgeries today.
May 12, 2011, 12:43 AM EDT
Flyers executive Ed Snider agrees with frustrated fans: he wants the team to find a reliable goalie, too.
May 10, 2011, 6:10 PM EDT
Mike Richards is among the Flyers players who will need off-season surgery, but most of today’s focus was on his testy relationship with the media and the quality of his leadership.
May 9, 2011, 10:14 PM EDT
It’s easy to say that the Flyers should add a free agent goalie or trade for an improvement, but are there really any good options for this team? This post explores that question.

The Flyers are expected to go with Sergei Bobrovsky in Game 4. Did this change come too late? This post examines the differences and similarities between their consecutive 3-0 deficits.
Apr 26, 2011, 5:38 PM EDT
You probably already know that the Flyers decided to start Brian Boucher for Game 7 tonight. The question is: how do they feel about it?

Check out the highlights from today’s Game 6 between Philadelphia and Buffalo that saw the Flyers win 5-4 in overtime. Also check out the view from netcam and our star cams as well.

It wasn’t pretty – in fact, Mike Richards’ hit on Tim Connolly was downright ugly – but the Flyers found a way to earn a 5-4 Game 6 in overtime. This sets up a decisive Game 7, which fits this series perfectly.
Apr 24, 2011, 6:18 PM EDT
Scott Hartnell scored the only goal of the third period to tie the game 4-4, sending Game 6 to overtime. Read this post for a recap of the action up to this point.
Apr 24, 2011, 4:24 PM EDT
The pre-game worries were justified, as Michael Leighton totally flopped in allowing three Sabres goals on only eight shots. Buffalo earned a 3-1 first period lead as they took advantage of Flyers’ gaffes.

The Penguins might be leading their series with Tampa Bay, but they’ve got a reason or two to be nervous. Also, Washington’s toughness, the joy of a rivalry, Jon Quick’s bounce-back game, and Flyers goalie roulette.

Home ice advantage is apparently a joke in the NHL playoffs this year. Speaking of jokes, hey the Flyers goaltending everyone. Those thoughts plus more on Tyler Ennis, David Legwand, and Jordin Tootoo.
Apr 22, 2011, 11:08 PM EDT
The Sabres put the Flyers on the brink of elimination with a 4-3 overtime win in Game 5 all thanks to rookie Tyler Ennis.
Apr 18, 2011, 10:08 PM EDT
The Flyers changed things up in goal and changed their fortune for the better beating Buffalo 4-2 to take a 2-1 lead in the series.
Apr 18, 2011, 12:15 PM EDT
The Flyers reportedly decided to go with Brian Boucher instead of Sergei Bobrovsky in Game 3. If that wasn’t enough, it also appears that Michael Leighton will back up Boucher instead of Bobrovsky.
Apr 18, 2011, 1:27 AM EDT
Chris Pronger’s return would make the Sergei Bobrovsky/Brian Boucher debate less crucial, but the star defenseman isn’t expected to play in Game 3. In fact, he might not be ready for Game 4, either.

In our Five Thoughts we help you learn to love the shutout in the playoffs. After six shutouts through 16 games, it’s easy to get nervous. Relax kids, it’s all fun. We’ve also got worries for Boston and San Jose.

If you thought there would be a goalie controversy heading into the playoffs for the Philadelphia Flyers, think again. The Flyers are going with “Bob.”
Apr 6, 2011, 1:19 PM EDT
Michael Leighton cleared re-entry waivers today and will be eligible to play for Philadelphia in the playoffs if need be. Getting a guy with Stanley Cup experience back for the playoffs is a nice luxury to have.
Apr 5, 2011, 1:36 PM EDT
The Flyers placed Michael Leighton on re-entry waivers today, giving other NHL teams the chance to acquire him for half the price of his contract. This post breaks down the move from the Flyers and other teams’ perspectives.
