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.
They got the win, they got the two points, and offensively, they did a lot of good things that ultimately resulted in the number of goals they needed to get the game to overtime. But there are plenty of flaws that, at least this season, appear to be beyond repair, and that’s concerning with more tough matchups coming in the weeks ahead.
Over at ESPN.com, Greg Wyshynski posed the biggest question for each of the 24 teams in the playoffs. The Flyers one is quite intriguing. Are these games following the pause, to be played in neutral hub cities, away games for Carter Hart?
The scene shifted to Philadelphia for the final game on April 11 and it set up one of the best finishes and a memorable playoff run. Here is a look back at the Shootout.
It was a weekend full of festivities, starting with a New Year’s Eve Alumni Game for the ages that featured the return to the ice of many legends for both the Flyers and New York Rangers. Then came the main event on Monday, Jan. 2 where the two division rivals with a lot of history took the ice.
They were set to face off against the New York Rangers in the first round of the 2014 Stanley Cup Playoffs. In his first season behind the bench was now Flyers head coach Alain Vigneault. What ensued was a battle of a seven-game series that featured ups and downs the entire way. Here is a closer look at the Flyers 2014 playoff series against the Rangers.
Derek Grant got his first two points as a Flyer, assisting on a shorthanded goal and getting the eventual game-winning goal in the Flyers 5-3 win over the New York Rangers on Sunday afternoon.
Kevin Hayes struck for a pair of goals in the third period against his former team, 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.
If Thanksgiving is the marker for being in a playoff position, the Flyers did more than just settle for being among the contenders at the holiday. They padded the margin and made a move further up the standings to cap off a historic month.
Carter Hart finished with 31 saves in 65 minutes and Henrik Lundqvist had 32. In a shootout, Mika Zibanejad had the only goal to lift the Rangers to a 2-1 shootout win over the Flyers.
After a long eight-year career as a Philadelphia Flyer, Wayne Simmonds will be moving onto his new team. We take a look back at the path that he has been on since arriving back in 2011-2012.
Perhaps the fourth time will be the charm. This is not the Flyers first rodeo in an outdoor setting. They have been on this stage three times before, but have yet to get a win.
The Metropolitan Division, featuring Flyers captain Claude Giroux, came away victorious at the 2019 NHL All-Star Game in San Jose on Saturday night, defeating the Atlantic Division in the semi-finals and the Central Division in the championship game.
Michal Neuvirth kept the Flyers in the game, helping them get to overtime. After a scoreless overtime, Neuvirth made three saves in the shootout, Nolan Patrick scored in the fourth round and Kevin Hayes missed on his attempt as the Flyers came away with a 3-2 shootout win over the Rangers to head into holiday break on a high note.
The Flyers have one game left before getting a three-day break for the holidays. They travel to take on the New York Rangers on Sunday night.
After turning in the worst period of the season that ultimately was their downfall in a 5-2 loss in Buffalo on Wednesday, one that had the fanbase sharpening pitchforks and lighting torches ready for some form of change to be made, the Flyers responded with a quality win against a divisional opponent.
For the first time in five games, the Flyers scored the first goal of the game and never looked back, as all three members of the top line had three-point games and Cal Pickard pitched a 31-save shutout in a 4-0 win over the Rangers on Friday afternoon at Wells Fargo Center.
The Flyers enter the Black Friday matinee against the Rangers on a four-game losing streak, last in the Metro, 15th in the conference and 28th in the league standings. And the road doesn’t get easier. The Rangers come into Friday’s game on a 9-1-1 stretch over their last 11 games.
The Flyers have wanted to be patient with Hart and have him take every step necessary in development. Injuries may have opened the door for a chance to make the roster this season. The injuries are not Hart’s focus though, rather what he can control in his case to be an NHL goaltender.
The Flyers picked up another preseason win with a lot of the contributions coming from young players trying to solidify their spot on the NHL roster. The standouts from Wednesday’s win at MSG in our Postgame Review.
The New York Rangers await as the Flyers hit the road for the third time in the preseason so far, facing the Rangers at Madison Square Garden. Game time is set for 7 p.m.
