It was hockey's version of the rope-a-dope, where the Flyers took the Dallas Stars' best punches early on before going the distance, eventually wearing down an opponent that was playing their third game in four nights. The end result was a 2-1 Flyers victory, extending their season-high winning streak to six games (see observations). In […]
Of course, the Flyers haven't provided positive results. After trouncing the Capitals and Panthers in their first two home games of the season, the Flyers have dropped 10 of their last 12 in South Philly.

Mired in a nine-game losing streak – its longest skid in nearly […]

In sports, sometimes we need a reminder that there are bigger things than wins and losses.Providing smiles for two youngsters battling cancer is a beautiful example.Dave Hakstol and the Flyers helped make those special memories possible on Tuesday night
