Briere, Gagne return; Ross demoted

Monday, November 30, 2009, 9:59 PM
Veteran forwards Danny Briere and Simon Gagne returned to the Flyers' practice Monday, bringing a sense of optimism to a club that has lost five of its last six games and has struggled offensively. Briere has missed the last three games _ two on a league-mandated suspension, one because of the flu... Read more

Flyers playing for Stevens' job; Briere, Gagne progressing

Monday, November 30, 2009, 12:07 AM
What's my take on John Stevens' future as the Flyers' coach? The Flyers, who have lost five of their last six, are playing for his job. Either they step up, or the gentlemanly Stevens might be asked to step down. Yes, injuries have played a role in the club's mediocre first two months. But the Flyers'... Read more

Offense vanishes as Flyers fall

Saturday, November 28, 2009, 10:52 PM
When your backup goalie allows just one goal _ as Brian Boucher did Saturday night _ you should skate off the ice with two points. Instead, the Flyers got zero in a 1-0 loss to the Atlanta Thrashers at the Philips Arena. It was the fifth loss in the last six games for the Flyers, who dearly miss... Read more

Briere out, Lappy in as Flyers go for 15th straight vs. Atlanta

Saturday, November 28, 2009, 4:06 PM
ATLANTA _ More bad news for the Flyers: Danny Briere, who is second on the team with 10 goals, will miss tonight's game in Atlanta because of the flu. Briere had missed the previous two games because of an NHL-mandated suspension. Barry Hanrahan, the Flyers' assistant GM, strongly denied a published... Read more

Flyers suffer 2 more injuries; Lappy loses 4 teeth, gets 50-100 stitches

Friday, November 27, 2009, 2:18 PM
The Flyers’ already-long injury list grew when right winger Ian "Lappy" Laperriere and center Jared Ross suffered first period injuries Friday afternoon in their 4-2 loss to Buffalo at the Wachovia Center. The happy-go-lucky Laperriere lost four teeth and received between 50 and 100... Read more

Boosh: Flyers' best player on trip; Emery gets Fri. nod

Wednesday, November 25, 2009, 9:56 PM
Backup goalie Brian Boucher gets my vote as the Flyers' best player on their 2-3 road trip, which ended with their 2-1 win over the host New York Islanders Wednesday. In three appearances during the trip, Boucher had a 1.61 goals-against average. Boucher made 27 saves in the first two periods Wednesday... Read more

Biron facing Flyers tonight; Laliberte demoted

Wednesday, November 25, 2009, 3:42 PM
Goalie Marty Biron, one of the NHL's all-time good guys, will face his ex-teammates Wednesday when the improved New York Islanders host the Flyers at 7. "He's a great guy who loved to be at the rink every day and loved to have fun," Flyers winger Scott Hartnell said. "Seeing him in... Read more

Giroux's fight sparks Flyers, but....

Tuesday, November 24, 2009, 12:56 AM
Claude Giroux is known for his playmaking, not his fists. Yet, with the Flyers facing a 5-2 deficit Monday, the little forward pounded Marek Svatos during a fight late in the second period and it seemed to spark his team toward one of its best 20 minutes of the season. But it didn't matter. It didn't... Read more

Carter, Richards need to step up

Monday, November 23, 2009, 3:27 AM
DENVER _ The Flyers need their two marquee offensive players _ Jeff Carter and Mike Richards _ to step up and lead the team out of their current funk. Both have been glaringly unproductive in recent games. Carter, who scored 46 goals last season, is scoreless in the last four games _ and has just... Read more

Flyers' special teams awful; Betts, Powe sidelined

Sunday, November 22, 2009, 12:04 AM
There was a lot of complaining from the Flyers that the game-winning goal was scored because of a blown call in their 3-1 loss to host Phoenix Saturday night. There may be some merit to their claim, but…. The fact is, the Flyers’ special teams have been awful the last two nights and have... Read more
