A two-goal swing over the final minute of the second and first minutes of the third changed all that in a 5-2 loss to the Ottawa Senators.
1,000 games. 900 points. 15 years of memories. A look back at the 10 best Claude Giroux moments, and a few more as well.
Want to know what it’s like on the other side of a Claude Giroux deke? The NHL’s GoPro series concluded…
Before the newest draft picks are made, here’s some of the recent first-round picks at 7th and 22nd overall, including some former Flyers.
Alex DeBrincat scored off a turnover by Felix Sandstrom in overtime to hand the Flyers a 5-4 loss to the Ottawa Senators and snap their winning streak at four games.
Following a seven-game homestand, the Flyers head on the road on Thursday night to take on the Ottawa Senators.
Chuck Fletcher has been fired as Flyers GM and President of Hockey Operations. Danny Briere will serve as interim GM. In a statement, Dave Scott also expressed that the team will separated the GM and President of Hockey Operations roles in a new leadership structure.
After another case of organizational malpractice at the trade deadline, the choice is in the hands of the Flyers highest-appointed figures. You can accept this reality of being the laughing stock of the NHL and accept the growing distance between yourself and as loyal a fanbase as there is in sports or you can finally do something about it. Time’s yours.
One day prior to the four-year anniversary of Ron Hextall’s firing as Flyers GM, chants of “Fire Fletcher” could be heard at Wells Fargo Center. Chuck Fletcher’s time should be running out, but it’s not the only change that needs to be made.
The Flyers are once again taking on former captain Claude Giroux and the Ottawa Senators, only this marks Giroux’s first game in Philadelphia in another uniform.
Columbus jumped out to a 3-0 lead early in the second, and that was enough to hang on until two empty-net goals late sealed a 5-2 loss for the Flyers.
Zack MacEwen scored the game-winning goal in the second period and Carter Hart stood tall in a 2-1 win for the Flyers over the Senators on Saturday night.
A three-game road trip comes to an end on Saturday night as the Flyers face the Ottawa Senators and a familiar face on the opposition. It will be Claude Giroux’s first game against his long-time former team.
The Flyers tried to move cap space, but couldn’t clear enough for Johnny Gaudreau to sign with his hometown team. The Flyers instead added forward Nicolas Deslauriers and brought back defenseman Justin Braun.
On Wednesday, you saw that the current regime is incapable of handling a rebuild. They insisted upon an aggressive retool for a fast fix, not the necessary rebuild needed. Now it’s time to start that rebuild anyway, but focus on the front office that has so clearly set the Flyers back.

The offseason will present its challenges for a team in need of an overhaul and massive improvements at every level of the organization. There will be plenty of stories to come as next season’s team is constructed. For now, here’s one last look at the 2021-22 season with five takeaways from the season.
The latest misstep for the Flyers organization surfaced on Monday, as Anthony SanFilippo of CrossingBroad.com reported that Director of Medical Services Jim McCrossin and assistant athletic trainer Sal Raffa had filed a lawsuit against Comcast and others after being diagnosed with rare medical conditions.
The final 15 games for the Flyers will serve as a chance to evaluate. They will provide a look at some new faces entering the lineup in the last couple of weeks and maybe even a new face or two to come down the road. It is a way to take inventory going into the offseason – what does the team already have and what does it need even more of on the roster moving forward?
The Flyers played three games on the road, snapping a 13-game road losing streak in St. Louis on Thursday, including an incredible NHL debut for Hayden Hodgson. The guys discuss this, more from around the league, Claude Giroux’s debut with the Panthers, and more.
As the trade deadline passes and the Flyers open up a few roster spots, it presents more of an opportunity for younger players to get more of a look at increased roles in the NHL. GM Chuck Fletcher used Sunday’s game as an example of what he hopes to see for the rest of the season, “energy, hard work, young players playing a bigger role and getting an opportunity to show what they can do for next year.”
The guys discuss Claude Giroux’s 1,000th NHL and the Flyers trading the captain to the Florida Panthers two days prior to the deadline. They also look at deadline day deals for Justin Braun and Derick Brassard, as well as break down the team going forward with the addition of Owen Tippett.
Claude Giroux was introduced as a member of the Florida Panthers on Monday, his choice team and reportedly the only team he would waive his no-movement clause for a trade to take place. “Those details are going to stay private with Chuck Fletcher, but Florida was top of my list,” Giroux said.
The Flyers moved Justin Braun at the trade deadline to the New York Rangers for a 2023 third-round pick. So was Derick Brassard, who heads to the Edmonton Oilers for a 2023 fourth-round pick.
It’s not about whether Owen Tippett has the ability in him. That’s what got him drafted 10th overall in the 2017 NHL Draft. It’s about if he can consistently have noticeable performances like the one in his Flyers debut on Sunday, especially if the opportunity for ice time and an increased role is there.
“We signed Claude eight years ago to a lengthy, superstar type of contract, which he earned, and as part of that contract he had a no move clause and he earned that right to decide, to have a big say in where he would go, I think is the best way to put it,” Flyers GM Chuck Fletcher said. “I did have a very limited market in terms of the teams I could speak with.”
The only Flyer who needed to find the back of the net was Kevin Hayes. Hayes scored twice in the second period, including a power-play goal with 5:05 remaining. That proved to be the game-winner through the third period, as the Flyers claimed a 2-1 win over the Islanders.
One day after trading Claude Giroux to Florida, it could be the final game for several other Flyers players, as the team plays the final game before the trade deadline on Sunday afternoon against the New York Islanders.
In the end, Giroux ultimately held the keys to his destination. Florida was where he wanted to be. That left the Flyers limited in what they could get in return. If nothing else, the return in the Giroux deal is more of a reality of what the state of the Flyers is and remains after this trade, and the result of years of shortcomings by the organization.
