In the tightly-packed Metropolitan Division, one could easily make the case for any of the eight teams finding themselves in the postseason. With just 12 points separating the division-leading Washington Capitals (71 points) and the cellar-dwelling New York Rangers (59 points), all eight teams can rise up the standings – or plummet to the bottom […]
31. Arizona Coyotes Not much has changed over the course of the season for Arizona. Clayton Keller has cooled off significantly since his early-season hot streak, and Antti Raanta hasn’t been able to steal enough games to lift the ‘Yotes out of the basement. Team MVP: Clayton Keller 30. Ottawa Senators Nothing has gone right for […]
The Flyers are 2-0 so far this week, with their wins coming against Carolina and Montreal. Their overtime win against the Hurricanes put them into the first wild card spot in the Eastern Conference, and hopefully they can keep it there, if not improve.

With the AHL regular season surpassing the halfway point, it’s time to talk about the playoffs. Last year’s playoffs ended disappointingly for the Hershey Bears, as they made swift work of the Lehigh Valley Phantoms, but lost to the Providence Bruins the next series.

There’s something special about going to a game as an away fan. You’ll get dirty looks. You’ll get heckled. You’re outnumbered. In short, it’s incredible. Before this game, I had only gone to an away Flyers game once before. Back in the magical 2009-10 season, the Flyers met the Devils in the first round of […]
Over the past few seasons, the Bears have lost several staples of their back end. In 2015-16, Nate Schmidt left the Bears roster, as he made the Washington Capitals roster out of training camp. This year, in the 2017-18 season, Christian Djoos and Madison Bowey have left the Bears behind, beginning to play full time […]
