The Flyers bring a four-game winning streak into Sunday’s game against the Columbus Blue Jackets, who have lost eight straight games.
The Flyers are back on the road and back in Columbus looking to stop the bleeding, this time to start a three-game road trip on Tuesday night against the Blue Jackets.
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.
On Thursday night, the Flyers hit the road to face another team at the bottom of the standings and locked into a lengthy losing streak. The Columbus Blue Jackets have lost five straight games dating back to Oct. 23, including both games in their trip to Finland last weekend.
The Flyers and Blue Jackets face one another for the final time this season on Thursday night with the home-and-home series shifting back to Columbus.
The Blue Jackets took the lead for good with 6:44 remaining in the third, as Elvis Merzlikins made 47 saves in dealing the Flyers a 4-2 loss on Tuesday night at Wells Fargo Center.
For the last few games, everything has remained relatively similar of late, but the Flyers will get one face back in the lineup on Tuesday night as they open up a home-and-home with the Columbus Blue Jackets.
It seems fitting that Claude Giroux’s seventh trip to the NHL All-Star Game and possibly final one as a Flyer ended with the Metropolitan Division securing a victory with Giroux as captain. Giroux scored twice in the championship game against the Central Division after scoring a goal and adding an assist in the first game of Saturday afternoon’s event to take home MVP honors.
For the second time in just 40 games, the Flyers have lost 10 straight games, taking the 2-1 defeat to the Columbus Blue Jackets.
Cam Atkinson and Jake Voracek face their former teams for the first time on Thursday night. For the Flyers, it also may be the second time already this season that they reach double-digits on a winless streak.
For those who appreciate the fact that a player’s quality can’t be defined solely by numbers, Ivan Provorov’s performance on the ice backs it up. He’s not the indisputable best defensemen in the NHL, but he certainly didn’t deserve to be omitted from the NHL’s list of the top 20 defensemen for the 2019-20 season. So why was he left out?
Just as they did with Florida a week ago, the Flyers have a chance to create some separation with Columbus when they face each other again on Thursday night, as the Flyers look to complete a season sweep of the Blue Jackets on the road.
The Flyers currently hold the final wildcard spot in the Eastern Conference with 71 points. That is just one point behind the opponent for the next two games, the Columbus Blue Jackets, who technically hold the first wildcard spot with 72 points though they are tied for third in the division with the Islanders.
The Flyers look to go into a brief break for Thanksgiving on a high note, traveling to Columbus to face the Blue Jackets on Wednesday night.
The deal — a six-year, $40.5 million deal with an average annual value of $6.75 million — is more than just the completion of a deal in time for Ivan Provorov to report for training camp on Friday morning. It is a win for both sides — for Chuck Fletcher and the Flyers and for Provorov as well.
The Flyers have signed defenseman Ivan Provorov to a six-year deal worth $40.5 million, an average annual value of $6.75 million, just hours before the Flyers begin training camp on-ice workouts.
According to TSN’s Bob McKenzie, the Flyers are working hard to sign RFA defenseman Ivan Provorov today, just before the start of training camp. McKenzie also reports that the Flyers and RFA forward Travis Konecny are not close to a deal.
With just three days remaining until training camp begins, Ivan Provorov and Travis Konecny remain unsigned. The two would be notable absences from Alain Vigneault’s first training camp as head coach.
While it still seems likely that the Flyers will get deals done with Ivan Provorov and Travis Konecny at some point before camp begins, just what kind of deals with they get?
With August upon us, the Flyers still have not re-signed restricted free agents Ivan Provorov and Travis Konecny, two key pieces to their future. But the Flyers are not alone among teams still needing to sign key RFAs with just over a month until training camps open.
The Flyers announced on Friday that they have re-signed forward Scott Laughton to a two-year deal with an average annual value of $2.3 million. With the deal, Laughton and the Flyers avoid arbitration. A hearing was scheduled for July 30.
If the Flyers did everything they could to eliminate chances in front of Carter Hart in the first two games of his career, they didn’t do him any favors in his third game. Hart was left in difficult position, needing to recover from the shortcomings the Flyers had early in the season, in a 4-3 loss to the Columbus Blue Jackets.
Carter Hart faced just 19 shots in the game, but allowed four goals as the Flyers struggled and were unable to find a rally in a 4-3 loss to the Blue Jackets at Wells Fargo Center.
The Flyers need to channel the energy from a character win in Pittsburgh that was led by their goaltender, especially as they take on the Columbus Blue Jackets, a team challenging for the Metro Division lead. Game time is 7 p.m.
