Issues between the pipes holding back the Flyers

Philadelphia faithful are more than tired of hearing about goaltenders. The Flyers are a team that has seemingly struggled to find a superstar netminder since the turn of the century, and despite any number of promising prospects, poor managerial decision making, and poor play have left the Flyers with a carousel in goal. As the […]

The Way for Wayne to Win

Wayne Simmonds’ fight against Jamie Oleksiak on Saturday was a flashback to the Wayne that we knew and loved leading up to last year. Though the notable injuries that Simmonds battled in the 2017-18 season may have understandably reduced his inclination to drop the mitts, bringing an element of toughness back into his game may […]

Ron Hextall Out as Flyers’ GM

Fans have been clamoring for a change for weeks and they got one. Probably not the one that was expected but this change was much needed. This is likely just the first shoe to drop as the Flyers look to find a new direction. The former Flyers’ goaltender has been with the organization’s management since […]

The season hasn’t exactly started the way that Spencer Carbery and the Bears would have liked, as the team has gone 3-6-0-1 in their first ten games. Although the team as a whole hasn’t been stacking the win column yet this season, one player is certainly making his mark both on the ice and on […]

Youth and Experience Lead Hershey Over Penguins 4-3

The youth movement in Hershey continued to show results on Saturday evening, as the Bears topped rival club Wilkes-Barre Scranton Penguins for the second time this season, prevailing with a 4-3 shootout victory. With their slow start to the season behind them, Hershey is looking ahead to the future in the best way possible, bringing […]

The Flyers are off to a rocky start

It’s no secret that the Flyers don’t always start the regular season strong, and the 2018-19 season has been no exception. With six games in the books, the Flyers have played .500 hockey, winning three games and losing three games. However, their record isn’t totally indicative of their performance, and the injuries the team has […]
