The Flyers season is over, and it sets up for an interesting offseason for GM Chuck Fletcher, one that begins now that the season is over and will carry over throughout the summer and as the 2019-20 season approaches.
The Flyers didn’t carry the play for most of the night, but took advantage of the opportunities they had to keep hanging around in the playoff picture with a 4-1 win over the Islanders.
Flyers defenseman Radko Gudas was suspended for two games for high-sticking Nikita Kucherov in Tuesday’s game against Tampa Bay.
For the second straight game, the Red Wings fired 38 shots Carter Hart’s way. This time, Hart made 37 saves, leading the Flyers in a 3-1 win over Detroit.
The Flyers won in overtime, 6-5. In the end, it doesn’t matter how the points come, as long as they keep coming. But against the lowly Red Wings, this was a game that the Flyers needed to lock down and didn’t do it. Sure, they survived, but it sets the stage for a difficult game to come on Sunday in the back end of a home-and-home.
The Flyers handled the struggling Ducks with four first-period goals and never looked back, picking up their 10th win in the last 12 games to keep the line moving.
Behind four first-period goals, the Flyers extended their points streak to 10 games, picking up a 6-2 win over the Ducks on Saturday afternoon.
Carter Hart made 18 of his 41 saves in the third period, including several highlight-reel saves, to keep the Flyers winning streak alive. The streak hit eight games, as the Flyers held off the Vancouver Canucks, 2-1, on Monday night at Wells Fargo Center.
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.
Carter Hart and the Flyers picked right back up where they left off before the break.The result was a fourth straight win, a 3-1 defeat of the Winnipeg Jets that started off slow, but finished solid and steady.
Goals by Travis Konecny and James van Riemsdyk and another solid game in goal from Carter Hart led the Flyers to a 3-1 win over the Winnipeg Jets for their fourth straight win.
James van Riemsdyk scored a hat trick, while Nolan Patrick and Wayne Simmonds each had a pair of goals to give the Flyers a 7-4 win over the Minnesota Wild on Monday night at Wells Fargo Center.
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 announced on Friday that they have recalled forward Phil Varone from the Lehigh Valley Phantoms ahead of their five-game road trip starting Saturday in Buffalo.
The Phantoms opened the month of November with a home-and-home against the Binghamton Devils and split the results, falling in overtime in Binghamton and rallying for a comeback win in overtime on Saturday.
The Phantoms had their first 3-in-3 weekend and posted a 1-1-1 record over the weekend, with the team losing both of Carter Hart’s starts and getting a win in the season debut for Alex Lyon.
The goalies are the leading topic at camp now with Alex Lyon and now Neuvirth dealing with injuries. Brian Elliott is also working his way back from an injury. That has all eyes on Carter Hart and Anthony Stolarz, two goalies just trying to throw their name into the competition. News, notes, quotes and more from training camp.
Forwards Cole Bardreau, Greg Carey, Phil Varone and Danick Martel as well as defenseman T.J. Brennan were placed on waivers on Friday. Martel was claimed off waivers by the Tampa Bay Lightning while the other four cleared, bringing the Flyers roster to 36 players.
For many players in Tuesday’s game, a trip to the Phantoms is likely soon enough, but they showed their skill as well in a 5-1 Flyers win over the Islanders on Tuesday night at Barclays Center.
