Flyers have been here before

Wednesday, May 15, 2013, 1:14 PM
What follows is likely the laziest blog post of all time. It is a reprint of the Flyers' game story from their third game in the lockout-shortened 1995 NHL season. Then, as now, it was their third consecutive loss out of the gate. Then, as now, there was concern because of how a slow start would cripple... Read more

Flyers Brayden Schenn suspended; Scott Hartnell sidelined

Wednesday, May 15, 2013, 1:14 PM
Some folks are saying the NHL is becoming the No Hitting League.

A Down Time All Around

Wednesday, May 15, 2013, 1:14 PM
It hasn't been the best winter so far in Philadelphia sports history, and it may be very close to the worst. (Look for that on a different day.)

Marty's Magic vs. Flyers

Wednesday, May 15, 2013, 1:14 PM
Martin Brodeur's 120th career regular season shutout Tuesday night was also his 10th against the Flyers, tying them with the Islanders for the most times victimized by the sure Hall of Famer. Those 10 shutouts are also the most by any goaltender against the Flyers, twice more than any other netminder... Read more

Missing: Flyers' offense

Wednesday, May 15, 2013, 1:14 PM
NEWARK - Three games. Three losses. Three goals. After Tuesday’s 3-0 loss to New Jersey, the Flyers are 0-3 for the first time since 1995. They ran into a hot goalie - the ageless Martin Brodeur - but they have shown an inability to finish plays in all three games. They are averaging one goal... Read more

Flyers to rock and roll on WMMR

Wednesday, May 15, 2013, 1:14 PM
For upwards of 50 years, WMMR has been a staple for any Philly-area drive-time commute. Anyone who tunes in Tuesday at 7:30, however, could be in for a rude awakening, as WMMR turns from classic rock to solid ice.
