When the Philadelphia Flyers took the ice against the Buffalo Sabres on Tuesday night, there were two main storylines hovering over them. The first was in respects to the NHL All Star Game selections. Many were puzzled by Daniel Briere’s exclusion from the game. Briere leads the Eastern Conference’s first-place team in goals scored and is having a terrific season.
The other topic in question was how would goalie Sergei Bobrovsky play after sitting behind Brian Boucher for the team’s last three games? This was especially interesting because Bobrovsky had not played well at all in his last two starts. Anaheim scored five goals against the young Russian, and Florida had chased...

Upon returning to the east coast after a four game road trip out west, the Philadelphia Flyers took the ice in New Jersey for a matchup with a lowly Devils squad. For all that can be said about New Jersey's record this season, there are never any easy points that come from an Atlantic Division game. Thursday night was no different.

For the Philadelphia Flyers, Detroit had been a city of horrors since 1988. The Red Wings always found a way to snuff out every opportunity for an orange and black victory.

But, Sunday night the Flyers dismissed their demons and found a way to walk out of Detroit a winner.
Brian Boucher got the start in net for the Flyers after Sergei Bobrovsky and Michael Leighton had started the two previous games on the west coast swing. The move paid dividends. Boucher was simply fantastic for the first two periods, stopping the first twenty shots he saw. After a scoreless first period th...
