What we learned from the Flyers 6-3 loss to the Sabres

Photo by Joe Hrycych/NHLI via Some observations for your morning... What more is there to say, gang? The Flyers, looking like they might be inching back towards getting on track, had a chance to snap their losing streak with a trip to Buffalo to face off against a not very good Sabres team. And instead of doing that, they got absolutely walloped, dropping this one 6-3, extending the winless streak to 11 games, and heading home on a very sour note. All stats via Natural Stat Trick. This one was just brutal We probably should have known from the moment that Rasmus...

Sabres 6, Flyers 3: The streak hits eleven in Buffalo

Sabres 6, Flyers 3: The streak hits eleven in Buffalo

Timothy T. Ludwig-USA TODAY Sports Enjoy your Saturday night, folks. The Philadelphia Flyers lost an afternoon game in Buffalo to a fellow bottom-feeding Sabres team by three goals, thanks to multi-goal performances from Tage Thompson and Peyton Krebs and the worst Martin Jones performance of the year. I’m not really one to try and psychoanalyze athletes based on their performance—to me it’s all guesswork that doesn’t really get you anywhere anyway. But it does seem to me like these Philadelphia Flyers seem to catastrophize once a few things go wrong, possibly...

Flyers vs. Sabres preview: There’s a low point coming

Photo by Len Redkoles/NHLI via We’re just not sure whose low point it’s going to be. Hello! Quick preview today because we’re a little bit behind, but in fairness, (/gestures at the state of the Flyers). Anywho! Flyers-Sabres. Game’s at 1:00, on NHL Network and NBC Sports Philadelphia (which means no ESPN+, for those of you who rely on that). Some notes and thoughts: The Flyers, as you surely are aware, have lost 10 games in a row. No, this is not the same as that other time they lost 10 games in a row. Yes, it has happened twice already. Yes, it has also...

Flyers place Kevin Hayes, Joel Farabee on IR; Farabee to miss up to four weeks

Photo by Len Redkoles/NHLI via The injuries just keep on coming for the Flyers. As if the Flyers needed more injury problems to deal with, the team announced Friday that forwards Kevin Hayes and Joel Farabee have been placed on injured reserve. Hayes underwent a procedure Tuesday morning to drain fluid from his core area and missed each of the Flyers’ last two contests. He is expected to miss up to four weeks. Farabee’s injury is new, however, and he is also expected to be out of commission for up to four weeks with an upper-body injury. In the Flyers’ contest...

NHL Trade Deadline: Five players the Flyers should move this season

NHL Trade Deadline: Five players the Flyers should move this season

James Guillory-USA TODAY Sports The NHL trade deadline is just two months away and the Flyers should be selling off whatever pieces they can. It is Friday, January 21st. The Philadelphia Flyers lost their 10th straight game on Thursday night. It’s their second 10-game losing streak of the season in just 40 games played. It’s almost impressive. The NHL trade deadline is on Monday, March 21st; exactly two months away. Chuck Fletcher and the Flyers have a lot of decisions to make. The team just lost their 10th straight game for the second time this season and have now...

What we learned from the Flyers 2-1 loss to the Blue Jackets

Photo by Len Redkoles/NHLI via Some observations for your morning... *extremely The Giant from Twin Peaks voice* it is happening again. It has happened again! It being a ten game losing streak for the Flyers. For the second time this season. The Flyers’ difficult stretch is still going strong, and despite a good effort and close game against the Blue Jackets last night, the Flyers’ offense wasn’t able to break through in the way that they needed it to, and they still couldn’t pull off a win. All stats via Natural Stat Trick. Many chances! For all that...

WE DID IT!

WE DID IT!

Eric Hartline-USA TODAY Sports Postgame 1/20 The Philadelphia Flyers pulled off an unthinkable feat in their 2-1 loss to the Columbus Blue Jackets on Thursday night. In dropping their tenth straight game, our boys in Orange and Black managed to to complete their second 10-game losing streak within the season’s first 40 games. That’s right. Saturday against the Buffalo Sabres will be game No. 41, meaning that before the halfway point of the 2021-22 NHL regular season, the Flyers have been on two separate losing streaks of (as of now) 10 games. Half of the games...

If you’re going to do something, do it all the way. Why stop at ten losses? Eleven is right there! RECAP! *Last night’s game, a meaningless midseason tilt between two floundering teams guaranteed to not make the playoffs, was a pretty important one for a couple of guys on the ice.

Blue Jackets 2, Flyers 1: History has been made

Photo by Tim Nwachukwu/ Well, probably. Kind of assuming that this is history because it seems hard to imagine that it isn’t. They did it. By God, they did it. The Philadelphia Flyers managed to upstage the return of long-time Flyer Jakub Voracek by losing their tenth game in a row, for the second time already this season, with a 2-1 loss to the Columbus Blue Jackets. They were unable to solve Elvis Merzlikins until the game was close to winding down, and some more truly terrible efforts on the power play and just enough leaky defensive zone moments did them in. If...

Voracek, Atkinson heading into ‘emotional’ game

Photo by Elsa/ The two forwards that switched sides this summer are facing their former teams for the first time. It is a monumental game between the Philadelphia Flyers and the Columbus Blue Jackets — a notion that is probably the first of its kind. Within the flurry of moves GM Chuck Fletcher made this summer, the straight swap of Jakub Voracek and Cam Atkinson was a hyped-up one that just appeared to work for both clubs the equal amount. Now on Thursday, the two will be facing each other for the first time in the jerseys that the other has gotten to know so...

Preview: Flyers to host Blue Jackets for the first time this season

Eric Hartline-USA TODAY Sports A loss in tonight’s Metro matchup could cap off another 10-game streak for Philly. Here we are again. Flyers fans may remember that the last season in which the team had a 10-game losing streak, they made the playoffs and became the first and only team to do that in NHL history. That was the 2017-2018 season, which followed a season in which the team had a 10-game winning streak and missed the playoffs—again, becoming the first and still only team to accomplish such a feat. Combine such statistical oddities with the fact that the...

What we learned from the Flyers pair of losses to the Islanders

What we learned from the Flyers pair of losses to the Islanders

Mitchell Leff-USA TODAY Sports Some observations for your morning… Ah yes, just what we all wanted, two games in a row against the Islanders. This week got off to an interesting start, as a tweak to schedule meant that the Flyers were dealt a home-and-home series with the Islanders these last two nights, and this went, well, just about as well as we might have expected. The Flyers put up a pretty brutal showing in their UBS Arena debut, dropping that one 4-1, but did rebound well in last night’s showing. They got the better of play for much of the night, but still...
