The Flyers will host the Penguins at Lincoln Financial Field on Feb. 23, 2019, as part of the NHL's ongoing Stadium Series, the NHL announced Sunday night. The 2019 "Battle of Pennsylvania" is a renewal of the first outdoor game between the two divisional rivals that saw the Penguins beat the Flyers, 4-2, at Heinz […]
The battle of Pennsylvania will take a new twist, as the NHL announced that the Philadelphia Flyers will be hosting the Pittsburgh Penguins at Lincoln Financial Field (home of the NFL’s Philadelphia Eagles) on Feb. 23, 2019. Last season, the Penguins beat the Flyers, 4-2, at Heinz Field in Pittsburgh. “It’s always a special opportunity […]
For years, hockey nerds and/or experts were waiting for Brayden Schenn to make “the leap.” Eventually, people gave up on that, to the point that the 26-year-old’s trade to the St. Louis Blues seemed more like a curious swap than a tide-turner. Now, sure, Schenn found a solid niche with the Philadelphia Flyers, but it […]
Sean Monahan, Johnny Gaudreau and the rest of the Calgary Flames had something to prove after getting embarrassed in Detroit on Wednesday night. Monahan recorded the first hat trick of his NHL career, Gaudreau picked up a goal and two assists to extend his points streak to a career-high nine games, and Michael Frolik scored […]
Things got a little choppy between the Philadelphia Flyers and Winnipeg Jets on Thursday.
One streak ended for the Minnesota Wild, but another one was extended to a franchise record. Devan Dubnyk posted his third straight shutout with 30 saves and Nino Niederreiter scored 12 seconds into the game for Minnesota in a 3-0 win against the Philadelphia Flyers on Tuesday night. Dubnyk has stopped all 103 shots he's […]
As a native of Las Vegas, Minnesota Wild forward Jason Zucker knows what the odds say will happen when his team hosts the Philadelphia Flyers on Tuesday night. If recent trends continue, Zucker will be the only player — on either team — to score a goal. In a 3-0 win over Montreal and a […]
The Pittsburgh Penguins and Philadelphia Flyers are two teams the Capitals don't get along with. The Capitals' AHL affiliate, the Hershey Bears, played Pittsburgh's affiliate, the Wilkes-Barre Scranton Penguins, on Sunday. Prior to the game, Hershey decided to throw some shade in the Penguins' direction.
Sidelined since the end of October and having missed eight games already due to a concussion the Philadelphia Flyers are hoping to get rookie center Nolan Patrick back in the lineup this week. Patrick was finally able to return to practice on Monday and is getting closer to a return. “It’s early in the process,” […]
Devan Dubnyk couldn't immediately tell that Jason Zucker had scored again. The Minnesota Wild have come up with a simple and effective plan: Zucker scores all the goals and Dubnyk stops all the shots. Zucker scored his sixth goal in three games and Dubnyk made 32 saves for his second straight shutout to give the […]
Don't think for one minute Michael Raffl isn't having fun. For a guy that scored 21 goals in 2014-15 and was at times featured in a top-line role alongside Claude Giroux and Jakub Voracek, remaining his jovial self would seem like a challenge. At 28 years old, Raffl is an elder statesman of sorts among Laughton […]

Halladay died unexpectedly Tuesday when he was in a plane crash off Florida's Gulf Coast. Halladay spent the last four years of his 16-year career in Philadelphia, winning a Cy Young Award his first season […]
