The Ancient Rivalry Resurrected: Flyers-Rangers Preview

The Ancient Rivalry Resurrected: Flyers-Rangers Preview

First playoff  meetup between these two ancient rivals since 1997 and it can use a boost. The edge has been off a little and there’s nothing like a heated post season series to fire things up. A Flyer diehard missing Avery and Tortorella? Yeah! This series should fix that. The two clubs have been similar [...]

One Bright Spot For The Flyers . . . .

One Bright Spot For The Flyers . . . .

One bright spot for the Flyers . . . . A number of Flyers have been secretly testing these suits out this season and they really work! http://www.telegraph.co.uk/technology/news/9902307/Invisibility-cloak-unveiled-at-TED-conference.html One bright spot for the Flyers . . . . A terrible 48 game season is much better than a terrible 82 game season! One bright spot [...]

WHAT DO NHL OWNERS AND THE NHLPA KNOW ABOUT THE COMING MAYAN APOCALYPSE THAT WE DON’T?

WHAT DO NHL OWNERS AND THE NHLPA KNOW ABOUT THE COMING MAYAN APOCALYPSE THAT WE DON’T?

As the NHL lockout drags on, games are cancelled, the Winter Classic is cancelled and NHL fans everywhere are asking themselves WHY? Why can’t the owners and players figure out how to divide a damn pie with 3.3 billion cherries in it? The real answer to this question, as revealed directly to me by sources [...]

Flyers Get The Wrong End Of The Broom

Flyers Get The Wrong End Of The Broom

The Bruins closed strong and finished off my Flyers for the season 5-1, looking dominant for most of the series and still better than the Flyers even when Philly played its’ best hockey of the series in Game 2. The Flyers showed some signs of life off a Kris Versteeg goal in the 2nd period [...]

Flyers Lose Game 3 In First Minute

Flyers Lose Game 3 In First Minute

Well, 63 seconds to be precise. Pucks keep going in for Boston, as Zdeno Chara and David Krejci, picking up where he left off in OT in Game 2, put two quick ones past Brian Boucher and the Bruins never looked back. They now take a 3-0 lead into Game 4, after winning tonight 5-1 [...]

Bruins Put Flyers In 2-0 Hole With OT Win

Bruins Put Flyers In 2-0 Hole With OT Win

My Flyers played a better game, jumped out to a two goal lead in the 1st but quickly gave it up and couldn’t get anything else past Boston goalie Tim Thomas and lost Game 2 3-2 in OT. James vanRiemsdyk, who was the best skater on the ice throughout, popped the first two in during [...]

Bruins Bury Flyers 7-3

Bruins Bury Flyers 7-3

Making shots and getting bounces often make the difference in close playoff games, and the Bruins got a flurry of bounces to put my Flyers as deep as four goals down and effectively closed out Game 1 taking it 7-3. Boston did just about everything right, especially taking full advantage on just about every chance [...]

Rematch! Flyers Face Bruins In Round 2

Rematch! Flyers Face Bruins In Round 2

A comeback of epic proportions . . . . . . . probably isn’t going to happen again. My Flyers had to do too much coming back in the Buffalo series and the Bruins did enough lead blowing against the Habs to make both fan bases hope for some good back and forth, low scoring [...]

Flyers Polish Off Sabres 5-2 Finish The Series

Flyers Polish Off Sabres 5-2 Finish The Series

Thank God it’s over! My Flyers played the way they were capable of, got bounces and made shots, chased Buffalo goalie Ryan Miller and polished off the Buffalo Sabres 5-2 in Game 7 of a back-and-forth series that was full of surprises. Philly won both the first and second periods tonight, dominating in the first [...]

Flyers Comeback Again Tie Series In OT

Flyers Comeback Again Tie Series In OT

My Flyers overcame two 2-goal deficits and fought off an early end to the season thanks to an overtime goal by Ville Leino, beating the Sabres 5-4. The game started badly for the Flyers, with starting goalie Michael Leighton giving up three goals on the first eight shots, all of them arguably softies, before being [...]

Flyers Stage Comeback But Lose In OT to Buffalo

Flyers Stage Comeback But Lose In OT to Buffalo

My Flyers had to be feeling good going into tonight’s game, but the Sabres won 4-3 in overtime after blowing a 3-0 lead they built up in the 1st. Brian Boucher gave up two softies to help put the Flyers in the hole with Tyler Ennis scoring from a bad angle and Thomas Vanek scoring [...]

Miller Stones Flyers, Series Tied 2-2

Miller Stones Flyers, Series Tied 2-2

My Flyers couldn’t finish again and lost 1-0, but unlike Game 1 where they lost by the same score, tonight they peppered Sabre goalie Ryan Miller with some great shots and he was able to stop every one of them. Jason Pominville scored the only goal of the game midway through the 1st due to [...]

Flyers Continue To Make Shots, Take 2-1 Series Lead

Flyers Continue To Make Shots, Take 2-1 Series Lead

Good positioning around the net by winger and recent healthy scratch Nik Zherdev proved to be the difference as my Flyers win again, 4-2 over the Sabres. An energized Jeff Carter, popping one on the power play, and Danny Briere made quick wrist shots up high beating Ryan Miller and Buffalo got their scoring from [...]

Flyers Make Shots, Get Bounces Win Game 2

Flyers Make Shots, Get Bounces Win Game 2

My Flyers bounced back, playing much closer to the game they need to, and beat the Sabres 5-4. Key to the Flyer victory was their centers outplayed Buffalo’s, Claude Giroux, going high and beating Ryan Miller, and Danny Briere knocking in a rebound. The top 3 Sabre centers were held scoreless, but Sabres left wing [...]

Flyers Make No Shots, Drop Game 1 To Buffalo

Flyers Make No Shots, Drop Game 1 To Buffalo

My Flyers found ways not to win in Game 1 versus Buffalo and so they didn’t, losing on a bounce 1-0, a rebound goal by Patrick Kaleta in the 3rd period, after losing a battle along the left defense boards.   Buffalo fans should be pretty happy about this one as just about everything they [...]

It’s my Flyers versus the Sabres . . . . again!

It’s my Flyers versus the Sabres . . . . again!

It’s my Flyers versus the Sabres . . . . again! This is their seventh meetup since 1995, (3-3 split going in) and I can honestly say none of the series have been very good. They’ve been walk-overs one way or the other, dull or painful. Easy first round wins or first round humiliating embarrassments, [...]
