Shayne Gostisbehere: Good At Hockey, Bad At Drawing Ghost Bears

Shayne Gostisbehere is good at a lot of things, however, drawing does not seem to be one of them. A picture appeared on Reddit posted by user DJMcSkillet. It appears Gostisbehere was asked to sign a fan’s helmet, a pretty traditional request for a hockey player. However, this fan had a very specific request. Gostisbehere, affectionately […]

Neuvirth Saves The Day

(Photo/Matt Slocum/AP) Oh look at that, the Flyers are gonna give up a goal with under a minute left……….PSYCH!!! This time around the Flyers were able to hold on to the lead by the skin of their teeth, and I’m not even sure teeth have skin. Since the beginning of the first period Michal Neuvirth […]

Jake Voracek Curses In Interview Between Periods

We’ll chalk this one up to a language barrier. Jakub Voracek, forward for the Philadelphia Flyers, was asked about the team’s feelings coming into tonight’s game vs the Maple Leafs without captain Claude Giroux. Voracek, a very colorful character, had an interesting response to the question:

NHL Basement Dwellers: Who Will Get Out

The NHL regular season is now entering its final quarter and the trade deadline is looming. Some teams are destined for playoff hockey and have practically stamped their ticket already.

Quick Recap: Flyers at Devils

Period 1: I knew this game was going to be interesting from the start, given that both teams need to win to remain in the playoff hunt. The game started as any Flyers’ game would by taking a quick penalty… thanks to Nick Schultz interfering with Stephen Gionta. The Flyers did a pretty good job […]

It was the moment that the hockey world had been waiting for. How would the Rangers get their revenge against Wayne Simmonds?

Ghost Extends Streak As Flyers Fall To Rangers

Just 59 seconds into the game, four players found themselves in the Sin Bin (Simmonds, White, Mcllrath, and Glass) with 5 minute majors for fighting. Shortly after, coincidental minors handed out to Zuccarello and VandeVelde, both for crosschecking. All this before even the first commercial break! During the first period, the Flyers had an early […]

Video: Wayne Simmonds First Period Fight

It is no secret that the Rangers would try to retaliate tonight against Wayne Simmonds after an incident involving himself and Rangers’ captain, Ryan McDonagh. They did so by sending Dylan “Why are you even in this league?” McIlrath in to go after Simmonds in a first period fight. However, as PK Subban has pointed […]

Ghost Breaks Record, Devils Take Down Flyers In OT

Desperate to push themselves back into the playoff race, the Flyers found themselves trying not to fall asleep this afternoon against the Devils. This game started out as you would expect any Flyers/Devils to be. BORING right from the start. I mean it’s terrible how awfully predictable these games can be. The Devils absolutely smothered […]

Umberger scores, Flyers Beat Sabres

Earlier today, I received word that Matt Read and Scott Laughton were out and Jordan Weal was set to make his second Flyers’ start. In addition, Rj Umberger surprisingly crawled back into the lineup. The second and third line were shuffled, the second line consisted of Raffl, Schenn and Cousins while the third line was […]

Ducks Soar Passed Flyers

First period: The Flyers coming into this game with their heads high after a rough weekend losing both games. It was a slow first period by the Flyers and was definitely filled with penalties as was the entire game. Rickard Rakell opens the scoring with a power play goal assisted by Perry. Just over five […]

Bursting Bubbles: NHL Playoff Predictions

Many teams have now entered their final thirty games of the season. Depending on how they perform down the stretch these ‘bubble’ teams will either be on the golf links or at the rink in April. As of right now there are no Canadian teams in a playoff spot, but there are three that may […]

Vigneault’s Rant Is Unjustified

New York Rangers coach, Alain Vigneault, ripped into the NHL Monday after not suspending Philadelphia Flyers’ forward, Wayne Simmonds, for a punch during Saturday’s contest. Simmonds punched, Rangers’ captain, Ryan McDonagh after McDonagh cross checked the Flyers’ winger in the back of the head. Simmonds received a match penalty for the incident while McDonagh received […]

Flyers Lose Second Straight

Welp, the Flyers managed to give up yet another lead to a divisional rival and lose 3-2, but thankfully not in a shootout this time. (Although we probably could have taken that extra point) The first period started off well enough with plenty of offensive pressure from the Flyers. The guys in orange were then […]
