My Flyers' crystal ball

Monday, March 29, 2010, 8:53 PM
All season, the Flyers have been Team Enigma, streakier than your car windows after your vehicle has been sitting under a sap-dropping oak tree for a few days. Hot. Cold. Coach fired. Cold. Hot. Cold. Hot. Olympic break. Cold. All of which means that another hot streak is coming. The timing couldn’t... Read more

'D' leads offense as Flyers end skid

Sunday, March 28, 2010, 10:10 PM
My, that looked easy. The Flyers _ whose late-season fade had started to conjure memories of the infamous '64 Phillies _ finally put together three solid periods Sunday. They got three goals from defensemen for the first time since 2005, killed all six shorthanded situations, and ended a five-game... Read more

Flyers show character flaws - again

Saturday, March 27, 2010, 6:35 PM
PITTSBURGH - The Flyers, it has become clear, have serious character flaws. When they get a break - like the gift goal goalie Marc-Andre Fleury handed them early in Saturday’s 4-1 loss to the Pittsburgh Penguins - they fail to keep a deflated opponent down. And when they face adversity - like... Read more

Flyers need to try Backlund in nets

Thursday, March 25, 2010, 11:48 PM
UPDATE: Backlund indeed will get the start Saturday in Pittsburgh. * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * It’s time to take a chance and put untested Johan Backlund in the nets Saturday afternoon in Pittsburgh. I know. I know. Last week, I said Brian Boucher wasn’t the Flyers’ biggest... Read more

Wednesday, March 24, 2010, 1:43 AM
After the Flyers’ 2-0 loss in Ottawa Tuesday, Mike Richards said his team didn’t play with enough urgency. As the Flyers’ captain, it’s time for Richards to get into the faces of the players he thinks are guilty. This is Richards’ second year as captain; it’s also... Read more

With Carter out, Giroux in spotlight

Tuesday, March 23, 2010, 6:26 PM
With Jeff Carter sidelined for the rest of the regular season because of a broken bone in his left foot, the Flyers are counting on Cluade Giroux to break out of his scoring slump and pick up some of the slack. Giroux has just two goals in his last 18 games entering Tuesday's key matchup in Ottawa... Read more

Stunner: Flyers' Carter sidelined 3-4 weeks

Monday, March 22, 2010, 1:26 PM
The Flyers’ playoff charge may have been derailed by the stunning news Monday that Jeff Carter, their leading scorer, will miss the next three to four weeks with a broken bone in his left foot. Carter was injured blocking a shot taken by Atlanta’s Clarke MacArthur in the first period of... Read more

No joy in Flyersville

Sunday, March 21, 2010, 10:57 PM
Are the Flyers collapsing right before our eyes? Two straight losses to sad-sack Atlanta, including Sunday’s 3-1 setback at the Wachovia Center, have raised that question. Entering a home-and-home weekend series with the Thrashers, the Flyers had the NHL’s second-best record over the last... Read more

Laviolette: 'We played like it was just another game'

Sunday, March 21, 2010, 1:18 AM
ATLANTA _ Chris Pronger and Ian Laperriere, the Flyers’ veteran leaders, were incredulous about the team’s listless 5-2 loss to lowly Atlanta on Saturday. So was head coach Peter Laviolette. The visiting Flyers showed little offense _ they had a total of 12 shots in the first two periods... Read more
