Six stats from the Flyers’ pair of losses to the Bruins

Six stats from the Flyers’ pair of losses to the Bruins

Photo by Fred Kfoury III/Icon Sportswire via Some observations for your morning... Well, folks. This was not a good time. The Flyers split their last series against the Sabres despite showing, overall, a pretty poor process, and were looking to get themselves back on track against a Bruins team that had been struggling heading into the series. We were hopeful that they might be able to do it, but instead what we got was the Flyers looking like they took a step in the wrong direction. Lacking in their details, often looking listless, and far too often breaking down in...

I miss the good Flyers

I miss the good Flyers

Photo by Steve Babineau/NHLI via Postgame 1/23 The Philadelphia Flyers capped off a forgettable trip to Boston with a 6-1 shellacking on Saturday to create more questions than answers when it comes to deciding what to make of the Orange and Black in 2021. After Kevin Hayes leveled the score at one 1:14 into the second stanza, the Bruins rattled off the contest’s final five goals for Philly’s second game with six goals against only six tilts into the season. Carter Hart allowed six goals on 26 shots against, but as has been the case all season it’s not all on him....

Have you come to this, the Broad Street Hockey dot com postgame recap, because you missed the game and hoped to find a concise and informative summary that would allow you to feel like you watched it? Well, apologies in advance. By reading this, you will feel like you watched this game. But through the eyes of a crazy person who spends too much time online. Can’t get up for a game without this song anymore. It’s so good. Anyhoo, aaaaarrrrrre yoooouuuuuou ready for some hockey?? I picked the Flyers to lose the...

Preview: Flyers look to earn split in Boston

Preview: Flyers look to earn split in Boston

Photo by Maddie Meyer/ A blown two-goal lead lingers from the loss on Thursday as Flyers look to get back into the win column. While the Flyers have far from played their best hockey in their first five games to start the 2020-21 season, a win in the backend of their two-game set in Boston would leave them at 4-1-1 through their first six games. Their 5-4 shootout loss to these same Bruins was a marker in that less-than-ideal start as the Flyers blew two separate leads in the eventual loss — despite earning a loser point in the process. But worse that blowing two...

NBCSN to shut down at the end of 2021

Photo by Len Redkoles/NHLI via This will change how we watch the Flyers next season. NBCUniversal announced on Friday that NBC Sports Network (NBCSN) will be shutting down at the end of 2021. It’s believed that both NHL games Stanley Cup Playoff games and NASCAR races will eventually be shifted to other platforms across NBCUniversal with the two main viewing channels being the USA Network and Peacock, a streaming platform the company launched in mid-January of 2020. Although games will still be broadcasted on NBC and NBC Sports Philly for the remainder of the season...

Did they blow two points or steal one?

Did they blow two points or steal one?

Photo by Maddie Meyer/ Postgame 1/21 If, in the same game, the Philadelphia Flyers both played like trash and were lucky to come away with a point, and also blew 2-0 and 3-2 leads in the third period, can we just say the game never happened? Unfortunately, we won’t get the time back, and the Flyers record now reads 3-1-1 for the season. James van Riemsdyk notched a pair of tallies, Claude Giroux netted his first of the year, and Travis Sanheim scored as well, with strong efforts from Jake Voracek and Kevin Hayes to round out the thatta-boys on the night. But the...

Preview: Flyers head to Boston for a test

Photo by Andre Ringuette/Freestyle Photo/ Philadelphia is shipping up to face the Bruins for their third series of the season. The Philadelphia Flyers were already in for a significant couple of games against the Boston Bruins in this early-season series. With the relatively easy competition of a Pittsburgh Penguins team that just laid there and took a beating, and a Buffalo Sabres team, that, well, are the Buffalo Sabres, the Flyers had it pretty easy in their first four games of the season. Now heading to Boston, this would have normally been a glimpse into what...

Flyers provide updates for Myers, Frost

Photo by Scott W. Grau/Icon Sportswire via Two of the Flyers’ youngsters will be out some time with substantial injuries. The Philadelphia Flyers finally provided an update on the status of injured defenseman Philippe Myers and forward Morgan Frost. The prognosis, however, isn’t exactly positive. Myers suffered a fractured rib in Tuesday night’s victory over the Buffalo Sabres and is considered week-to-week. Frost, meanwhile, is out indefinitely with a dislocated left shoulder. The Flyers placed Frost on IR. Injury updates: Morgan Frost suffered a dislocated...

Exploring Travis Konecny’s hot start

Exploring Travis Konecny’s hot start

Eric Hartline-USA TODAY Sports He’s been the best Flyer offensively. If I told you before the season started that Travis Konecny (as of writing this) would be tied for the league lead in goals with Bobby Ryan, would you believe me? Well, to suggest Bobby Ryan would be towards the top of any statistical chart this season would have been laughable, but for Konecny, perhaps it would have been within reason to indicate future success given the breakout campaign he had in 2019-20. After his rookie season in 2016-17 as a 19-year-old, Konecny posted two comparable seasons...

Film Study: Lindblom - Patrick - Konecny line shows promising signs

Eric Hartline-USA TODAY Sports Nolan Patrick got a chance to center Oskar Lindblom and Travis Konecny, and they did not disappoint. The Philadelphia Flyers may have found a new line combination on Tuesday night against the Buffalo Sabres. After a disappointing effort against the Sabres on Monday night, Alain Vigneault made a few “subtle” changes to the line combinations and defensive pairs for Tuesday night’s game. Well, those changes turned out to be not all that subtle. The only group that remained intact was the Flyers’ fourth line as all three top-nine lines...

Would you call it a... GRITTY win?

Photo by Drew Hallowell/ Postgame 1/19 Breathe in. Breathe out. Ahh, that was a relieving win. I really didn’t want to be mad at them, and they came through. The Philadelphia Flyers rebounded from Monday’s embarrassing loss with a 3-0 win over the Buffalo Sabres at the Wells Fargo Center on Tuesday night. The Flyers collected their fifth and sixth points in the standings on the back of Brian Elliott’s 40-save shutout, and Travis Konecny’s clutch breakaway goal late in the second period, to improve their record to 3-1-0 for the season. All is not well on...
