Flyers' new defenseman adds experience

Sunday, January 31, 2010, 8:05 AM
OK, so he's not Dion Phaneuf. But Lukas Krajicek, the player the Flyers signed as a free agent late Saturday night, WILL give the team some much-needed depth on defense. He was cheap _ according to a source, he signed for about $650,000, which will be prorated for the final 29 games _ and he fits... Read more

What's my line?

Friday, January 29, 2010, 3:10 PM
If the Flyers are going to become a legitimate Stanley Cup contender, they need their top-6 forwards to step up. Quickly.

With the New York Rangers and Montreal Canadiens losing their respective games Wednesday, the Flyers remained in a tie for the sixth spot in the Eastern Conference playoff hunt.

Goaltending and special teams' performances are considered major components of a team's success. Faceoffs? They fly under the radar. But the fact is, faceoffs are vital _ they trigger a team's offense and help sway a game's momentum. It's no coincience that the three NHL teams with the most points... Read more

Special teams cost Flyers in loss to Pens

The Flyers' nationally televised 2-1 loss to the visiting Pittsburgh Penguins Sunday can be explained in two words: special teams. The Flyers were just 1 for 9 on the power play, while Pittsburgh was 2 for 6, including Matt Cooke's winning goal with 1:47 left. With the loss, the Flyers are 3-1 on... Read more

Emery (Emery!) will start vs. Carolina

Friday, January 22, 2010, 5:11 PM

Leighton was expected to get the nod because Emery has had three straight starts since returning from his... Read more

Flyers blank Rangers again; Torts erupts

Thursday, January 21, 2010, 11:46 PM

Claude Giroux will remain at center Thursday when the Flyers host the New York Rangers in a key game at the Wachovia Center.
