How are you planning on spending this snowbound evening? Hopefully you weren’t planning on watching the Wizards, Sixers (you definitely weren’t), or the Islanders play tonight. The NHL has postponed today’s Islanders—Flyers game as well as tomorrow’s Capitals—Penguins game. The Capitals game yesterday was also…
Blackhawks winger Patrick Kane was accused of rape in August, and the investigation is still ongoing. In the meantime, Flyers fans at Wednesday night’s game made sure Kane remembered what happened in his offseason.
Along with coach’s challenges, the most noticeable new wrinkle in the NHL this season is the debut of 3-on-3 overtimes meant to decrease the number of games that go to a shootout. We saw its regular-season debut in last night’s 3-2 Lightning win over the Flyers, and it looked a lot like it did in its test runs in the…
The Flyers have named Dave Hakstol, formerly of the University of North Dakota, as their new head coach. GM Ron Hextall’s son previously played for Hakstol in Grand Forks.
The Flyers have fired head coach Craig Berube after two seasons. It’s not a huge surprise or anything.
This is Philadelphia's Ryan White moving the Islanders' Matt Martin's nose a few centimeters to the right in their first-period fight last night.
Hockey games feature—among other things—sharp blades and exposed necks, and every so often they collide. Last night Flyers defenseman Michael Del Zotto fell over while trying to dig the puck out of the corner. Avalanche forward Daniel Brière tried to step over him, but managed to clip Del Zotto's neck with his skate…
Ron Hextall was legendarily fiery in his goaltending days, and was brought in to be Flyers GM in the hopes of turning around the fortunes of a franchise that could probably use a kick in the pants—or, this being Hextall, a stick in the grill. After a listless loss to the Rangers, the Flyers players got their first…
Lisa Ann enjoys hanging out with athletes, which means she's collected a few anecdotes along the way. Today, she shared one about Philadelphia Flyer Michael Del Zotto, and his habit of being thirsty as hell.
For Halloween, the Flyers' equipment manager decided to freak out his players by sticking a plastic snake in a beverage cooler. Whole lotta f-bombs, which is the only appropriate way to react to a king cobra guarding your water.
Chris Pronger hasn't played since 2011, but he remains under contract with the Flyers through 2017. That alone seems like enough to preclude Pronger taking a job in the league office. You'd think!
Last week, the Flyers' ice crew took to the rink without the lightly dressed women fans had come to expect. The crowd booed. The Flyers were listening, because during last night's preseason game, they announced the ice girls would return. The crowd, and at least one beat writer, went nuts:
Yesterday was the Flyers' first preseason game since the offeason announcement that its female, lightly dressed ice cleaners were being done away with, to be replaced with 12 dudes in orange jackets. Fans most definitely noticed the change:
Former NHL player and referee Paul Stewart has a new column up on the Huffington Post about his officiating days. It's peppered with excellent anecdotes, none better than one involving Eric Lindros, then a rookie for the Philadelphia Flyers, being a spectacular prick.
Here is an excellent read for anyone interested in uniform marginalia, design trivia, or just the fashion horror show that was the 1990s. It's the previously untold story of the time the Philadelphia Flyers nearly went teal.
The Ottawa Sun reports that Flyers star Claude Giroux spent last night in jail after an incident with a police officer:
The standing ovation the Flyers received at the end of last night's first period was not entirely deserved. Through 20 minutes they'd been pretty well pushed around, getting outpossessed at even strength to the tune of 18 shot attempts to just 11 (37.9 percent). That, in hockey, doesn't sound like much, but it's…
Rangers fans and Flyers fans duked it out in the stands during Game 6 tonight at Wells Fargo Center. According to our tipsters, it was started by a couple of Rangers fans' taunts which got out of control, despite the ushers' attempts to quell things.
After Daniel Carcillo scored a goal to give the Rangers a 4-1 lead on the Flyers, he celebrated near the glass, surrounded by his teammates. One Flyers fan congratulated him with double middle fingers, right in his face. Carcillo obviously noticed.
