The Philadelphia Flyers faced off against the New York Islanders Thursday night. One could easily assume it would be an easy win. They were only playing the lowly Islanders, right? Wrong. Peter Laviolette said himself that the game would be a challenge. The Islanders have been a winning team lately, and you never want to underestimate your opponent.
The Islanders would score the only goal of the first period. Frans Nielsen skated into the zone with the puck by himself and fired a shot to beat Sergei Bobrovsky stick side. He just found a lane down the left wing and made no mistake with the puck.
The Flyers were out-shooting the Islanders and even had plenty of shots blocked, but they ...

He arrived in Philadelphia with the reputation of an enigma, and now the Flyers and their fans know why. With his scoring prowess and incredible fluidity on the ice, Nikolay Zherdev was a different dimension to the Flyers’ depth. As fate would have it, it was a dimension that was expendable.
The team put the Ukrainian forward on waivers Wednesday, in a move that was probably best for both sides involved. Zherdev had 15 goals in 47 games played, with limited ice time. When he was on the ice, the talented winger often played with the team’s fourth line, and rarely saw time with the power play unit.
Perhaps the reluctance of head coach Peter Laviolette to put Zherdev on th...
The Philadelphia Flyers were looking to tame the Phoenix Coyotes tonight and stop them from extended their current winning streak to eight.
The Flyers would fall short in their attempt of stopping the Coyotes winning streak as they beat the Flyers 3-2 in overtime grabbing their eighth win in a row.

Scoring depth has been a key to the success of the Philadelphia Flyers this season. The team has so many talented forwards to mix and match lines with. But as Blair Betts and Darroll Powe have shown this season, this cast of Flyers forwards does more than just score.
Betts and Powe have both recently ended long scoring droughts. Betts ended a 44 game goal drought last night and Powe ended a 34 game goal drought earlier this month. It was obviously fantastic to see both of those droughts end, but at the same time, there was never any need for concern.
These two guys are the definition of the perfect 4th line players and the perfect penalty killers. They'll ...
