Today, the Phillies placed starting pitcher Roy Halladay on the 15-day disabled list with inflammation in his throwing shoulder. Halladay said the pain is something new this spring, and that it began after his last start. "It started the morning after I pitched against Pittsburgh," Halladay said. "I woke up... Continue reading

With nothing but pride on the line and a visibly smaller-than-normal crowd on hand at the Wells Fargo Center, the Philadelphia Flyers defeated the New York Islanders 2-1 in their last home game of the 2013 season. Ilya Bryzgalov got the start in net, and saved 21 out of the... Continue reading

WELLS FARGO CENTER- An abundance of injuries to key players. A patchwork defense with some names the casual fan wouldn't recognize at first glimpse. A mountain to climb to reach even the 8th seed in the Eastern Conference playoff picture. It doesn't matter. The Philadelphia Flyers returned home, one night... Continue reading

In a move that probably won't be a huge factor in 2013, the Philadelphia Eagles traded running back Dion Lewis to the Cleveland Browns for linebacker Emmanuel Acho. Lewis had 13 carries for 69 yards (5.3 YPC) and one touchdown last season for the Eagles. Acho spent the entire 2012... Continue reading

'Broad Street Bullies' is the nickname that was given to the Philadelphia Flyers of old that used an extremely physical style to "bully" and intimidate opponents on the ice. Back in the 1970's, the Flyers won back-to-back Stanley Cups with this style of play, and the memories of those teams... Continue reading

Seems legit. A seemingly sarcastic 76ers fan is selling two tickets to Tuesday night's contest against the Orlando Magic for $1 million. That's right; $500,000 apiece to sit in the upper levels of the Wells Fargo Center and enjoy some pretty bad basketball. Of course, there are seats available for... Continue reading

The Philadelphia Flyers official Facebook page released this photo of Ilya Bryzgalov's new goalie mask, designed by Franny Drummond.

In the National Football League, there are positives about a team finishing the season with an abysmal 4-12 record. The Eagles, who were stuck in a period of complacency and unreached goals, were able to part ways with long-tenured Andy Reid and hire former University of Oregon coach Chip Kelly....

The 'Harlem Shake' is a fad/craze/sensation that has been making its rounds on YouTube and social media sites over the past couple of weeks. It is admittedly starting to get old, but it's really hard not to enjoy this one. The Flyers first goal in last night's 6-5 victory over... Continue reading

The Flyers may be just 6-7-1 in 2013, but that doesn't mean they aren't one of the top five franchises in the NHL over the past ten plus seasons. The graphic above, shown on the NHL Network this morning, shows exactly where the Flyers stand among the great franchises in... Continue reading

Michael Vick will remain an Eagle for at least one more season, and maybe the Flyers wish James van Riemsdyk had a restructured deal to stay in Philadelphia right now. Fans of the Flyers are accustomed to seeing players leave town after underperforming, only to shine in another team's sweater.... Continue reading

Last season, the Phillies found themselves in a huge hole heading into the last two months of the season.

If you thought that the start of the Flyers' season couldn't get any worse, you were wrong. First line forward Scott Hartnell has been ruled out indefinitely with a left foot injury. Hartnell suffered the injury in last night's 3-0 loss to the New Jersey Devils when he took a... Continue reading

I can't say that I agree with this suspension at all. Earlier today, Flyers' forward Brayden Schenn met with Brendan Shanahan about his hit on Anton Volchenkov in the second period of last night's contest. The video, shown below, is Shanahan's description of why it is deserving of a one-game... Continue reading
