Flyers recall Cam York from Phantoms

Photo by Len Redkoles/NHLI via The young blueliner has done enough, apparently. The Philadelphia Flyers are switching out some young blueliners on their roster before they head out on a four-game road trip starting on Friday against the Vegas Golden Knights. Announced by the team on Thursday afternoon, the Flyers have recalled defenseman Cam York and in exchange, have re-assigned defenseman Egor Zamula back to Lehigh Valley. Transaction: We have recalled defenseman Cam York from the @LVPhantoms (AHL) and have re-assigned defenseman Egor Zamula to Lehigh Valley....

Healthier Flyers still struggling to take care of business

Healthier Flyers still struggling to take care of business

Photo by Mitchell Leff/ So it goes. The Flyers’ steady press towards healthier status marches on, but things are still not going as smoothly for them as they would likely hope. The Flyers came into last night’s matchup against the Capitals coasting pretty well—they had just managed to beat the reigning Stanley Cup champs on Monday (and even if the Avalanche are also ravaged by injury, that was also a solid win), and they were getting James van Riemsdyk back in the lineup, which gave them the potential for a further boost in their offense. There was some potential...

RECAP! *With JVR officially back in the mix, the Flyers power should theoretically improve. Theoretically. [Inquirer] *Speaking of improving: Kevin Hayes. John Tortorella sent him a message and he heard it, loud and clear. And then responded. Here’s how he got there. [The Athletic] *Anyhoo, let’s take a look at the Prospect Report! Cutter...

Capitals 4, Flyers 1: Ovechkin scores two empty-netters, hands Flyers another loss

Photo by Mitchell Leff/ In a game closer than the score shows, the Flyers were unable to take down the injury-plagued Capitals. Wednesday night, fresh off an upset victory over an injury-plagued Colorado Avalanche team, the Philadelphia Flyers had a chance to take down another strong team missing several key contributors due to various ailments — the Washington Capitals. The Capitals have been without Nicklas Backstrom, their top-line center, and Tom Wilson, their physically imposing scoring winger, for the entire season. And in their second meeting against the...

BSH Radio #382: It’s Chuck’s reality and we’re all just suffering through it

Photo by Len Redkoles/NHLI via In which the gang gets into some quotes. The Flyers have finally figured out how to win some hockey games, and with some of their injured players returning to the lineup the question needs to be asked: are the Flyers headed toward Maximum Sadness? The gang dives into that question as well as looking back on the Chuck Fletcher/John Tortorella press conference that took place last week, and then taking a deep-dive into the Flyers’ defense.

Eric Hartline-USA TODAY Sports Looking to end home stand with a winning record. The Flyers are coming into this matchup off of a 5-3 victory over the Colorado Avalanche. Travis Konecny scored in his third straight game since coming back from injury, and leads the team with 10 goals. Travis Sanheim, Kevin Hayes, and Scott Laughton all recorded two points. The Washington Capitals come into this matchup after defeating the Edmonton Oilers 3-2. The Caps outshot the Oilers 50-30, including 41 shots in the first two periods. The Caps are wrapping up a six-game road trip...

BSH prospect report: Big week for Boston

Photo by Richard T Gagnon/ And World Junior camp invites abound. We’ll kick things off with the news of the week. First up, World Junior camps are just around the corner, and the Flyers have a couple of prospects who we already know will be attending their nations’. Unsurprisingly, Cutter Gauthier was invited to the United States’ camp, and a little more surprisingly, Ethan Samson was invited to Canada’s. Gauthier should be pretty close to a lock for the American team, and while Samson has a bit more of an outside chance of making the Canadian team, it does...

One assumes they’ll have some jump after defeating the Champs Monday night, but they might get a little jump from this, too: Tortorella sounded optimistic that JvR would be cleared for Wednesday's game. Still needs to get the final go-ahead, but he seemed optimistic.— Charlie O'Connor (@charlieo_conn) December 6,...

Flyers survive late Colorado push for upset victory

Flyers survive late Colorado push for upset victory

Photo by Mitchell Leff/ Never a doubt with this team, eh? A team just a week removed from a 10-game losing streak that has lost 12 of its last 13 tilts is rarely expected to contend with a squad as strong as the Colorado Avalanche. But when the defending Stanley Cup champions entered Wells Fargo Arena Monday night, the Philadelphia Flyers put together as strong an effort as one could hope to see from a badly struggling club. The Flyers took down the Avs 5-3 to earn their ninth win of the season Monday night, giving them 23 points through their first 26 games of the...

Photo by Michael Martin/NHLI via Hold on for dear life. Oh no. Please, no. Not this matchup right now. A Philadelphia Flyers team that has lost 12 of their last 13 games is about to face the reigning Stanley Cup champions for the first time this season. If we had to think of any analogy to get a guttural reaction for what this game might just end up being like, it might just be an owner of a Ferrari really egging on a person in a 1992 Miata that has one headlight working and something leaking out of it, to a drag race. The Colorado Avalanche are not the perfect team...

Devils 3, Flyers 2: Flyers win another shot battle and lose another game

Kyle Ross-USA TODAY Sports This one would’ve felt good. The Philadelphia Flyers could not repeat their season-opening home win over the New Jersey Devils, this time falling 3-2 in the Devils’ 11th consecutive road win. The big bad Devils, coming into this game with all the hype and the NHL-lead in standings points, didn’t look all that big or bad. Maybe playing the Flyers in Philadelphia is their kryptonite; maybe they were just due for an off-night; or maybe they are good but not as good as their season-to-date has been. Even though the Flyers didn’t pull out...
