Giroux headed to Phantoms?

Tuesday, September 30, 2008, 3:21 PM
Claude Giroux, the hotshot 20-year-old winger who was the Flyers' No. 1 selection in the 2006 NHL draft, seems like he's going to start the season with the AHL Phantoms. Flyers head coach John Stevens gave a less-than-glowing report on Giroux's progress in camp. “I think Claude has done just... Read more

Spectrum memories

Saturday, September 27, 2008, 11:04 PM
It was never flashy, never pretentious. But, in its own way, the Spectrum was a jewel. Our jewel. It was a no-frills, blue-collar arena and virtually every seat in the building was close to the action. Even those in the second level felt they could reach out and touch the ice. Led by Mike Richards'... Read more

Gagne, Flyers invade Spectrum

Friday, September 26, 2008, 11:37 AM
The Flyers, rebounding from a lisless performance on Wednesday, looked much sharper last night as they blanked the Islanders, 4-0.

Usually, young prospects energize a team, but that wasn't the case last night. The Flyers, playing mostly youngsters, looked listless in their 3-1 loss in Ottawa.

Gagne scores 2 goals in scrimmage

Saturday, September 20, 2008, 11:46 AM
Simon Gange, limited to 25 games because of a concussion last season, scored two goals _ one an empty-netter, the other on a penalty shot _ in the Flyers' intra-squad scrimmage in Voorhees today. Gagne didn't absorb or give any checks, so it'll be interesting to see how he responds after conatct.... Read more

For Flyers, lots of questions

Sunday, September 14, 2008, 11:03 AM
I was at a Center City function recently and Ray Didinger, one of the area's most respected journalists, was asked which of Philly's four major sports teams would be the next to win a championship. After a few seconds of deliberation, Didinger replied: "I'd say the Flyers. Their core group is... Read more
