The Best Flyers Players of the Decade

By Kevin Durso, Sports Talk Philly editor 

As the 2010s come to a close, it is a time to look back and reflect on the last 10 years. While it was certainly a disappointing decade for the Flyers, particularly over the last several years, there are still things that can be looked at as positives.

Today, we will look back at some of the top players of the decade for the Flyers, where there are certainly some obvious standouts that have cemented their place in franchise history. We will list five forwards, five defensemen and three goalies.

Hayes Scores OT Winner as Flyers Down Ducks

By Kevin Durso, Sports Talk Philly editor 

It wasn't a pretty game for the Flyers on Sunday night in Anaheim, but after Saturday's debacle, it didn't need to be pretty. The result could mask some of the errors on the ice. An early goal by Anaheim certainly brought about thoughts of a similar fate and a lost weekend, but the Flyers did get the equalizer before getting locked in a goalie battle.

In overtime, the newest member to the Flyers leadership group stepped in and did his part. Kevin Hayes scored on a breakaway at 3:53 of overtime to lift the Flyers to a 2-1 win over the Ducks on Sunday night.

Flyers-Ducks: Game 39 Preview

By Kevin Durso, Sports Talk Philly editor 

Alain Vigneault didn't mince words after the Flyers 6-1 loss to the Sharks on Saturday night to start a six-game road trip.

"It was a very bad game altogether," Vigneault said. "I've got nothing positive really to say about one player tonight. That hasn't happened to me very often this year."

The 6-1 defeat to the Sharks was surely a pitiful start to the road trip. The Flyers get right back on the ice on Sunday night to continue the six-game trip by facing the Anaheim Ducks.

Game time is at 8:30 p.m.

Flyers 4-Game Winning Snapped in Blowout Loss to Sharks

By Kevin Durso, Sports Talk Philly editor 

The San Jose Sharks had entered Saturday's game against the Flyers having lost four straight games, including a 3-2 overtime defeat on Friday, and had losses in 10 of the 11 games they had played in December. They certainly took out any frustrations they were experiencing on the Flyers on Saturday night.

Two Sharks scored their first NHL goal and Timo Meier posted his first career hat trick as the Sharks rolled to a 6-1 win over the Flyers.

Flyers-Sharks: Game 38 Preview

By Kevin Durso, Sports Talk Philly editor 

The Flyers went into the holiday break on a four-game winning streak. While the team's success in the first half of the season has been a welcome sight, there is still that shadow of doubt with the team in a decade that was defined by mediocrity. That would mean that all momentum would be halted by the post-holiday road trip. Since 2014-15, the Flyers have just a 2-11-3 record in the road games that have followed the holiday break.

If the 2019-20 season has been about breaking some old trends and showing a turn for the better, this provides another opportunity to prove it. The Flyers hit the road for six straight games, including five on the West coast. It all starts on Saturday night against the San Jose Sharks, a team that has lost four straight games and 10 of their last 11 entering Saturday's game.

Game time is at 10:30 p.m.

Hayes Scores Twice Against Former Team as Flyers Down Rangers

By Kevin Durso, Sports Talk Philly editor 

December games don't normally carry a playoff atmosphere, but with a lively crowd and two former Rangers partaking in the game for the Orange and Black, this one meant a little more.

Alain Vigneault was facing the last team he coached before taking the Flyers job and Kevin Hayes was facing his former team. Hayes struck for a pair of goals in the third period, including the game-winner as the Flyers went into the holiday break with their fourth straight win, defeating the Rangers, 5-1, on Monday night at Wells Fargo Center.

Flyers-Rangers: Game 37 Preview

By Kevin Durso, Sports Talk Philly editor 

For five seasons, Alain Vigneault served as the head coach of the New York Rangers and helped guide them to a Stanley Cup Final appearance and multiple playoff runs. Monday is sure to be a bittersweet day for the Flyers new bench boss.

Vigneault faces his most recent former team for the first as the Flyers and Rangers face off in the final game before the holiday break.

Game time is at 7 p.m.
