Flyers, Devils and ailing wingers

Monday, April 30, 2012, 11:37 PM

On Brodeur, the series, the odds

Saturday, April 28, 2012, 7:11 AM
Is New Jersey’s Marty Brodeur making his Final Tour? Brodeur, arguably the best goalie in NHL history, will turn 40 during the Flyers-Devils series. He hasn’t said this will be his last season, but he hasn’t said it won’t be, either. Brodeur was the difference in the Devils’... Read more

Giroux bypassed in MVP voting

Friday, April 27, 2012, 12:37 PM
Another day, another Flyer bypassed in the voting for an NHL award. Center Claude Giroux was the latest Flyer to be overlooked. He was not one of the three finalists for the Hart Trophy, given to the league’s MVP. After pretending he didn’t know what the Hart Trophy represented, Giroux... Read more

Simmonds blasts 'gutless' tweeters

Thursday, April 26, 2012, 2:40 PM
Flyers winger Wayne Simmonds was sickened by the dozens of racist and vulgar comments that Twitter users directed at his close friend, Washington’s Joel Ward, after he scored an overtime goal to defeat host Boston, 2-1, in Game 7 of their first-round series Wednesday. “It’s the Internet...

Flyers snubbed _ again

Wednesday, April 25, 2012, 11:05 AM
At the risk of sounding like a homer, you can call the Flyers “Team Snubbed.” When the NHL announced its three finalists for the Calder Trophy, given the league’s rookie of the year, Matt Read was bypassed _ even though he led first-year players in goals and game-winning tallies... Read more

Bryz missing his flash cards

Wednesday, April 25, 2012, 10:23 PM
If the Flyers are going to win their first Stanley Cup since 1975, goalie Ilya Bryzgalov probably needs to be their best player, not their best interview. Bryzgalov these days gives the impression he would rather have root canal performed than talk with the media. He is disinterested, won’t... Read more
