Flyers shutout in matinee against Bruins, 4-0

Flyers shutout in matinee against Bruins, 4-0

Photo by Fred Kfoury III/Icon Sportswire via I sat through NESN commentary for this? It was preseason hockey this afternoon in Boston, and if you didn’t spend your Saturday afternoon watching the game, well, the headline alone probably was enough to tell you that you didn’t miss much. However, preseason hockey still gives insight into exactly what our expectations should be going into the regular season, so if you want to know exactly how low to set the bar, here’s your recap against the Boston Bruins. Period 1 Early on, there wasn’t much action going on....

Preview: Flyers visit Bruins in preseason matinée

Photo by Mitchell Leff/ It’s Saturday afternoon, what else are you going to do? The Philadelphia Flyers are halfway through their slate of preseason exhibition games, if you can believe it, and they begin the final slog of games with a game against the Boston Bruins on Saturday afternoon. What else do you have to do? Fun things? You can instead watch part of the Flyers real lineup play a fake hockey game. This afternoon’s bout between one good team and one bad team will be available on NBCSP+ and NESNplus and on 97.5 The Fanatic, for those audio watchers. Puck drop...

Flyers Top 10 Prospects, No. 5: Emil Andrae

Photo by Andy Devlin/ An undersized, but promising defender is raising some eyebrows in Sweden. In regard to young defensemen in the Flyers’ pipeline, most of the focus is on names like Cam York, Egor Zamula or Ronnie Attard — all players who have already gotten their feet wet playing in the NHL and AHL. But across the pond in Sweden, Emil Andrae is coming off a strong season that has raised some eyebrows.

Please care for yourselves in these trying times. Flyers announce they've released Antoine Roussel from his PTO.Shame he's not the player he once was, apparently. But he was pretty unimpressive in his limited game action in the early part of camp. Pretty easy decision to make.Artem Anisimov remains at camp on a PTO, for now.— Charlie O'Connor...

BSH Radio #373: Finally someone asks, who should be the Captain?

Photo by Bill Smith/NHLI via In which there is actual hockey to talk about!  The Flyers are playing actual hockey games — meaningless hockey games, but hockey games nonetheless — so the gang finally has some good old fashioned hockey to talk about. It’s a show full of overreacting to preseason performance, the Flyers’ new behind-the-scenes series The Standard, and a spirited debate about the Flyers’ second line center that you won’t want to miss.

The Flyers’ forward lineup is starting to take shape

The Flyers’ forward lineup is starting to take shape

Photo by Gregory Fisher/Icon Sportswire via It’s all starting to come together. With a back-to-back to work with for their second and third preseason games, the Flyers had a chance to get more of their veterans and NHL regulars into the mix and really start getting some looks at prospective lines heading into the season. And with the injuries that have already hit the forward group, there are certainly a number of open questions remaining about how that lineup will shake out. But that said, while there’s still ample time left for tinkering over the next three...

Five “over-unders” for the 2022-23 Flyers

Five “over-unders” for the 2022-23 Flyers

Photo by Mitchell Leff/ Making some guesses! If you’re not pessimistic about this season for the Philadelphia Flyers (or somehow, overtly and unwaveringly optimistic, which if that’s the case, then good on you!) then expectations for this team would be best described as “we don’t know”. As such, there’s a lot of factors and performances that could swing this team in either direction in the Metropolitan Division, too many to exactly cover in one round. Therefore, we wanted to take a look a few of these variables in the form of “over-unders” and of...

Dylan Strome leads Capitals past Flyers, 3-1

Photo by Mitchell Leff/ It’s another preseason defeat for the Flyers, who managed just a lone tally from Kevin Hayes in the loss. Newcomer Dylan Strome scored twice as the Washington Capitals defeated the Philadelphia Flyers, 3-1, in preseason action from the Wells Fargo Center on Wednesday night in South Philadelphia. Kevin Hayes scored the lone goal for the Flyers, who dropped their second-straight game of the preseason in the process. Netminders Felix Sandstrom and Samuel Ersson were both solid between the pipes, but the Flyers’ lack of offense was again present...

The Flyers come in at 1-1, having defeated the Boston Bruins in the pre-season opener and lost to the Buffalo Sabres last night. Tonight, of course, is almost an entirely different lineup than we saw in that game. It’ll be Felix Sandström in net for the Flyers, someone who may have a real...

Flyers Top 10 Prospects, No. 6: Wade Allison

Eric Hartline-USA TODAY Sports Can the talented winger finally put together a full season. One of the most debated players by all Flyers fans, including us here at Broad Street Hockey is Wade Allison. When we were asked to submit these rankings, some writers had him inside the top five, while for others he wasn’t even their top 15. Eventually, we settled on Allison as our number six prospect. Everybody knows the talent and work rate is there, now the question is can he stay healthy for a full season. No.6: Wade Allison 2021-22 League/Team: Lehigh Valley Phantoms...

Three stats to improve for three Flyers bounce back candidates in 2022-23

Photo by Len Redkoles/NHLI via A rough 2021-22 is in the rear view for these three Flyers to get back on track this season. The 2021-22 Philadelphia Flyers were a godawful hockey team for a myriad of reasons, but perhaps the most glaring was that you could count on one hand how many players played at or exceeded expectations. There was Travis Sanheim and Cam Atkinson and…well that’s it — that’s the list. If the Flyers aren’t going to be a total embarrassment in 2022-23 it’ll be thanks to having more than two players capable of performing. The names down...
