In a year when expectations were not very high, in fact almost non-existent, the Flyers took the league's best team in the regular season to Game 6, falling a goal short.

Monday night's Game 3 is a night that will scar Philadelphia sports for a long time. Which is why Game 4 on Wednesday, a chance for one last good showing from the Flyers and the fans, is so important. Continue reading
There was a lot to be embarrassed about in Monday's 6-1 loss for the Flyers in Game 3 to the Washington Capitals. With the series essentially now over in only a matter of time, reflections from Game 3 need to be about not what went wrong within the game, but how the Flyers are really just finding out how far away they are from being a team with the competitive nature that the Capitals have.

The Flyers have excuses to hide behind. But being in a prime playoff position with 10 days remaining in the season is not the time to start lacking in effort, and the Flyers slow starts and struggles throughout games to teams of varying talent is no excuse for playing as poorly as they have.

Suddenly, the Flyers playoff hopes, which one week ago looked so likely, are on life support. A similar start led to another insurmountable deficit for the Flyers, this time against the NHL's worst team. The Toronto Maple Leafs struck for two first-period goals. The Flyers managed a third-period rally, but fell on a power-play goal by Jake Gardiner in overtime, 4-3, on Thursday night at Wells Fargo Center. Continue reading

With Wednesday's loss in Detroit, things just got a lot more interesting for the Flyers. A win in Detroit would have presented an opportunity for the Flyers to clinch. Now, Thursday's game against the Maple Leafs isn't a must-win for clinching purposes. It is a must-win because it could very well be what decides the Flyers playoff fate. Continue reading

Andrew MacDonald will miss at least one game after taking a hit along the boards from Tom Kuhnhackl in the Flyers 6-2 loss to the Penguins on Sunday. The Flyers defenseman was thrown awkwardly into the boards and remained down on the ice as the Penguins scored their fifth goal of the game on a 2-on-1. MacDonald has played in 24 games this season, picking up seven assists. He is also a plus-8 on the season, tied for second place on the team. MacDonald left the game and did not return. The Flyers will likely tab Evgeny Medvedev to fill... Continue reading

The Flyers were on the losing end and roughed up again by the Penguins for the second straight time. But last time, that game seemed to have a positive effect on the Orange and Black. With four games left, they have no choice. As frustrating as it was, this is a result that the Flyers need to bounce back from with vigor, especially with the same Penguins team coming to Philadelphia in just six days. Continue reading

Saturday's game lacked the vibe of a playoff game on paper. Playing a team with nothing left to play for but pride can certainly be difficult. And as is the case with afternoon games, the Flyers struggled to find that energy early, but once they did, they showed why they are still in the running for a playoff spot. Continue reading
Wayne Simmonds scored twice and added an assist for a three-point game as the Flyers topped the Ottawa Senators, 3-2, on Saturday afternoon at Wells Fargo Center. Continue reading

If this was a preview, if this was the test of things to come, well then the Flyers showed just how physically tough they are to go along with how mentally tough they have already proven to be. With six games to go, it's not over yet, especially now that the Flyers have put some distance on the Red Wings. Continue reading
