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.
The Edmonton Oilers were held to just three goals, with Leon Draisaitl factoring into each. That was enough to beat the Flyers, who couldn’t manage a goal in yet another defeat, falling to the Oilers, 3-0, on Tuesday night.
Now that the Flyers have a win under their belts, they look to continue that against another high-powered offense, facing the Edmonton Oilers.
For the third straight game, the Flyers faced the “win a period, win a game” scenario, once again going up against some stiff competition to start the season. After falling short last Saturday against the still-undefeated Florida Panthers, the Flyers passed the test this time.
Cam Atkinson capped off his second two-goal game of the season with the eventual game-winning goal at 4:18 of the third period in the Flyers 5-3 win over the Edmonton Oilers.
The Flyers open a three-game Western Canada road trip against the Edmonton Oilers, another team undefeated with a 5-0-0 record. Wednesday’s game will mark a second straight without Ryan Ellis in the lineup, making the challenge that much tougher.
When the Flyers and Oilers met in the Stanley Cup Final in 1987, what ensued was a battle of wills that featured two epic comebacks and nearly saw the Flyers top a legendary team in a seven-game war, quite possibly the best Stanley Cup Final ever to take place. Even the greatest player in the league called Flyers netminder Ron Hextall the toughest he ever faced.
Three quick goals in the second period put the game away as the Oilers rolled to a win over the Flyers behind Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl.
The Flyers complete their first of 17 back-to-backs this season, as they return to the ice following Tuesday’s 3-1 loss in Calgary to close out a three-game Western Canada road trip against the Edmonton Oilers.
The Flyers acquired goalie Cam Talbot from the Edmonton Oilers in exchange for goalie Anthony Stolarz, GM Chuck Fletcher announced shortly after midnight on Saturday morning.
According to TSN’s Darren Dreger, the Flyers are in preliminary discussions with the Edmonton Oilers regarding a trade around goalie Cam Talbot.
Saturday’s game was certainly not be design, but the Flyers stayed with the game and found a way to rally back and win in overtime, defeating the Oilers, 5-4, in overtime. It has them up to seven straight wins and surging.
In overtime, Nolan Patrick was the hero, scoring the game-winning goal to give the Flyers their seventh straight win, 5-4, over the Edmonton Oilers on Saturday afternoon.
The Flyers come home for the next five games, starting with the Edmonton Oilers on Saturday afternoon, where they welcome Connor McDavid, Leon Draisaitl and former head coach Ken Hitchcock.
Recent news from around the NHL include a shakeup in Edmonton, the All-Star spectacle in San Jose last weekend, and a big technology announcement that could change the NHL forever.
The Flyers did nothing to turn the tide in Edmonton, looking rather lifeless in a 4-1 defeat to the Oilers.
This is a game of two teams going in opposite directions. The Edmonton Oilers have surged back into a playoff spot with an 8-2-2 record under new coach Ken Hitchcock. The Flyers, meanwhile, are 1-1-1 on a five-game road trip with very little, if any, progress made since the firing of GM Ron Hextall.
The first preseason game of the NHL season happened at 2:30 a.m. ET. The game was held in Shenzhen, China, the first of two games between the Boston Bruins and Calgary Flames in the preseason taking place in China. That and more in Around the NHL.
