The NHL season starts in just eight days and Tuesday night presented the final chance to see the Flyers on home ice before their home opener on Oct. 9. The final preseason game featured a welcome sight. Claude Giroux returned to the lineup against the Rangers, two games ahead of schedule. With most of the players that will likely make up the roster in a week, the Flyers managed to put their recent struggles on the road behind them in a 4-2 win over the Rangers at Wells Fargo Center. The Rangers would strike for the game's first goal, as... Continue reading

There was common theme to two plays that altered the Eagles loss to the 49ers on Sunday. The film shows it perfectly. When the Eagles failed to score at the end of the game and when they allowed a crazy touchdown to Frank Gore, a mistake that was plain to... Continue reading

Playing four games in five days can be taxing on any team. In the preseason, there is no need for a team's regulars to be burned out that early. So with the B team dressed for the second straight, the Rangers were able to power their way to a win as the Flyers fell for the second straight night by a score of 6-3 at Madison Square Garden. The Rangers stormed out of the gate for three early goals. Anthony Duclair, Ryan Haggerty and Jesper Fast all scored in a span of four minutes to give the Rangers a 3-0... Continue reading

Slow starts and offensive struggles finally caught up with the Eagles in Week 4. It wasn’t a clean game for either side, but when it came down to the wire, the Eagles simply weren’t good enough to beat the 49ers, not this week. There are still plenty of things for... Continue reading

Robert Hagg scored the lone Flyers goal in a 3-1 loss to the Devils on Sunday night. (Photo by Amy Irvin/38Photography) With two games on back-to-back nights, the Flyers took an unseasoned team to Newark to face the New Jersey Devils. The team consisted of many players that have already been cut from Flyers camp and will be playing for the Lehigh Valley Phantoms starting this week. In a game that was basically the AHL Flyers against the Devils regulars, the Flyers were outmatched but stayed in the game until the end. Still, the Devils managed to edge the Flyers...

The Eagles were one yard away from a potential 4-0 start and had two plays to get it. But inside the redzone, the plays simply weren't there again. That summed up a horrible day for the Eagles offense, who didn't manage a single point as the Eagles fell for the... Continue reading

The Eagles have been the comeback kids. Three strong second-half performances have keyed a 3-0 start for the Eagles in 2014, putting them in the spotlight.

When this game appeared on the schedule, you looked at the potential that both teams could be looking for a 3-1 start. The Eagles already have three wins, bringing a 3-0 record into the game. The San Francisco 49ers are just 1-2 after losses to the Bears and Cardinals. As... Continue reading

Scott Laughton scored a goal and added two assists in the Flyers 4-0 win over the Devils on Thursday. (Photo by Amy Irvin/38Photography) From the close of last season to the dawn of this season, there are already noticeable changes to the Flyers power play. It hardly seems to matter. The power play continued a strong start to the preseason, going 3-for-4 as the Flyers shut out the New Jersey Devils in a 4-0 win on Thursday night at Wells Fargo Center. The Flyers wasted no time getting on the board. Brayden Schenn capitalized on a great pass from Andrew... Continue reading
