Monday, November 30, 2009, 11:22 AM
Simon Gagne could be back in the lineup sooner than expected. Gagne practiced on Monday morning at the Flyers Skate Zone in Voorhees, N.J., wearing a yellow jersey to single himself out from the rest of the Flyers’ lines. It was his first full practice with the team since he had abdominal surgery... Read more

Briere out with flu, groin?

Saturday, November 28, 2009, 5:29 PM
Danny Briere will not skate Saturday night in Atlanta. No, that is not a misprint. No, his suspension was not extended. Briere picked up the flu bug over the Thanksgiving holiday and will be unable to play. He was suspended by the NHL for two games on Tuesday for his hit on Colorado defenseman Scott... Read more

The Flyers have re-assigned defenseman Danny Syvret to the Adirondack Phantoms on the Thanksgiving Holiday, a source has told the Daily News. Syvret, 24, is playing on a non-entry level two-way contract. That means that as of 12 o’clock noon on Thursday, Syvret is open to claims by all 30 teams... Read more

Briere suspended; Timonen hurt?

Tuesday, November 24, 2009, 10:20 PM
Danny Briere… the bruiser? Of all the players on the Flyers roster that could be suspended, I would probably peg Briere about as likely to be banned as Mika Pyorala. Not that Briere doesn’t hit or sometimes play a physical game, he is just not a dirty player. Briere was suspended for... Read more

Flyers forward Danny Briere has been suspended two games by the NHL for his hit on the Colorado Avalanche defenseman Scott Hannan on Monday night in Denver.

More injuries?

Tuesday, November 24, 2009, 1:15 AM
DENVER – The view from the perch on Monday night was not pretty. I can’t imagine what it was like from the ice – or inside the Flyers’ locker room after the second period. The Flyers had ZERO business having a shot to tie with under a minute left in a game that they trailed... Read more

Sunday, November 22, 2009, 1:49 PM
DENVER - These injuries are going to hurt. Down Blair Betts (dislocated right shoulder) and Darroll Powe (strained left shoulder) for the next 4 to 6 weeks, the Flyers have recalled winger Andreas Nodl and center Jared Ross from Adirondack for the time being. Both players are making their way to... Read more

Richards' hit still reverberating

Friday, November 20, 2009, 2:12 PM
SAN JOSE – Mike Richards’ hit on David Booth back on Oct. 24 is still reverberating through the hockey world. Last week at the NHL’s general manager meetings in Toronto, many GMs pointed to that hit as the reason why head shots and dangerous hits need to be taken out of the game. This... Read more

Boucher Stands Tall

Thursday, November 19, 2009, 1:58 AM
LOS ANGELES – The Flyers’ winning ways continued on Tuesday night as they hung on for an important 3-2 win over the Los Angeles Kings at the Staples Center in the opening battle of a five-game road swing. Here were my 3 Stars: 1. Brian Boucher – “Boosh” admittedly did... Read more

Boucher to Start Tonight

Wednesday, November 18, 2009, 3:36 PM
LOS ANGELES - Flyers coach John Stevens said at practice on Tuesday that goalie Brian Boucher would "definitely" start at least one game on the Flyers' current five-game road swing. We just didn't know it would be tonight. Boucher will be in goal tonight when the Flyers take on the Los... Read more
