Devils may be playing golf, but: All in all, Game 4 was a pathetic effort from a team that fancies itself a contender in the Eastern Conference. But here’s the thing. The Rangers simply aren’t that good. They have a long way to go before becoming anything approximating a legitimate threat to win the Stanley Cup, or even come close. It’s probably safe to assume now that the first-round series between the Rangers and Philadelphia Flyers pitted the two worst teams in this year’s playoffs against one another. And part of the problem for the Rangers is they remain their own worst enemy. Perhaps it would be different if the Rangers weren’t such a desired destination for players. Then it might not be tempted to try to grab every fading star player just because he happens to be available.
I can't wait for the NHL Playoffs to start on Wednesday. These are the teams that made it and match ups. In the Eastern Conference: Detroit Red Wings vs. Boston Bruins, Columbus Blue Jackets vs. Pittsburgh Penguins, Philadelphia Flyers vs. New York Rangers and Montreal Canadiens vs. Tampa Bay Lightning. And in the Western Conference: Dallas Stars vs. Anaheim Ducks, Minnesota Wild vs. Colorado Avalanche, Chicago Blackhawks vs. St. Louis Blues and Los Angeles Kings vs. San Jose Sharks. These 16 teams have one goal, to win the Stanley Cup. We shall see who will win the Stanley Cup. :)
The biggest key to the Stanley Cup Playoff series between the New York Rangers and Philadelphia Flyers could be which team plays the best on the road. In four regular-season games this season, the home team won each time. The Flyers have won three in a row against the Rangers at Wells Fargo Center, and the Rangers have won seven in a row against the Flyers at Madison Square Garden. "Home-ice advantage is always better. MSG will be rocking," Rangers forward Rick Nash said. "It's a huge rivalry. It's going to be a fun one to play in. You play in the regular-season games [against Philadelphia] and they're that much more intense than the regular ones. So the playoffs are going to be much more exciting." The Rangers were the better road team this season, with their 25 wins on opposing ice the most of any team in the Eastern Conference. Philadelphia won 18 times on the road but their 110 goals away from home was one fewer than the Rangers, and the Flyers had the League's best road power play. The Rangers scored ...
The Philadelphia Flyers of 2013-14 are a hard team to understand. It’s frustrating to most fans because as soon as you think they’re starting to roll, something seems to set them back. On paper, they certainly have a lineup that should do damage in the Eastern Conference. But for some reason, they c...
(TSN) Sean Couturier, Zac Rinaldo and Michael Raffl scored to lead the Philadelphia Flyers to their 10th straight home victory, 3-1 over the Montreal Canadiens on Wednesday night. The surging Flyers returned home after a 5-1 trip that sent them to fourth in the Eastern Conference.
For all the bad mouthing the caps get, this is an interesting fact...Over the past three seasons, which team has played in more Stanley Cup playoff games? a. Pittsburgh Penguins b. Philadelphia Flyers c. New Jersey Devils d. Washington Capitals You guessed it. Thanks to the Boston Bruins’ four-game sweep of the Penguins, your beloved Capitals have played in more post-season games  than the Penguins , Devils  and Flyers . In fact, only two teams in the Eastern Conference – the Bruins  and the Rangers  have played in more post-season games than the Caps over the past three springs.
Not sure I like this. :( Report: Boston, St. Louis inquire about Briere Mike Halford Feb 27, 2013, 10:49 AM EST 14 Comments AP Could Daniel Briere be on the move? That’s the question circulating around Philly this morning after the Daily News’ Frank Seravalli broke word that a pair of teams — the Blues and Bruins — have inquired about the 35-year-old. It’s an interesting bit of information given the Flyers, mired in 10th place in the Eastern Conference, could use a shakeup beyond bringing back the likes of Mike Knuble and Simon Gagne. Also interesting is that St. Louis and Boston — both likely playoff bound — are kicking the tires on a great playoff scorer (Briere has 108 points in 109 career postseason games.) Now all that said, Briere doesn’t sound interested in changing addresses. More, from Seravalli: Briere, 35, is one player who isn’t going anywhere. The Flyers have not asked Briere to waive his no-trade clause, and it isn’t clear whether they’re interested in moving him, but h ...
So we are about midway throughout the NHL season, and the Philadelphia Flyers sit at 9th in the Eastern Conference. It seems to be a blessing that they are only that far out of the playoffs, because they have looked really bad at times, not being able to finish games. The biggest surprise is that the offense is most to blame for their struggles, not Ilya Bryzgalov. The offense is actually ranked 8th in the league, which again is shocking considering how in some games they struggle to score even 2 goals. The huge bright spot for the Flyers has been right winger Jakub Voracek, who leads the team in points, goals, and assists. He has been extremely hot as of late, scoring 5 goals and tallying 8 assists in the last 5 games. But if we are looking ahead toward the playoffs, I have to say the Flyers need to pick it up if they're gonna make a run in the postseason, which could likely be against a or seed. And that means they're gonna have to step it up in every aspect of the game, but most importantly puttin ...
It seemed like the competition was not getting any stronger in the NHL's Eastern Conference. That changed dramatically when Nashville star defenseman Shea Weber signed a 14-year, $110 million offer sheet from the Philadelphia Flyers.
