We got a 3 PM start time in South Philly for Flyers vs. Rangers on Saturday afternoon, and neither team looked like they needed a wakeup call, especially after an epic heavyweight tilt between Nic Deslauriers and rookie Matt Rempe a few minutes into the game. The Rangers took a 1-0 lead in the 2nd period, as Sam Ersson and Igor Shesterkin were locked in a goalie battle during this Metropolitan Division matchup. Can the Flyers stage...

After losing in overtime in Toronto and dropping a big game in regulation at MetLife to the Devils, Philadelphia needs to beat a tanking Blackhawks team, despite the return of rookie phenom Connor Bedard to Chicago’s lineup last week. With only a 5-point lead on NJ in the standings, and about 2 weeks until the trade deadline, the Flyers need to reestablish themselves if they want to hold on to their playoff spot. Bill, JP & Charlie...

The Philadelphia Flyers have a captain for the first time since March 19, 2022– the day they traded Claude Giroux to the Florida Panthers. Sean Couturier has been named the 20th captain in team history, and the Flyers celebrated by giving up a natural hat trick to Auston Matthews in the 2nd period on Thursday night, but fought back in the 3rd period, tying the game at 3. However, the new leadership group could not finish off the co...

Rasmus Ristolainen, Tyson Foerster, Jamie Drysdale and Owen Tippett all missed Wednesday’s practice but it seems only Ristolainen will miss significant time after his injury was initially reported as “minor.” Charlie & Bill discuss how injuries could impact the Flyers trade deadline plans, as well as if the front office is considering how potential trades of mainstays like Scott Laughton could affect the Philadelphia locker room.

Morgan Frost has 15 points in 16 games since John Tortorella last benched him on January 4th. Now, with 4 points during the Flyers’ current win streak, Frost’s play at both ends of the ice has fans wondering if the 2017 first round pick has an even higher upside. Bill & Charlie discuss Frost’s emergence, as well as the March 8th trade deadline, with the latest trade rumors coming out of Buffalo, Toronto and more. Plus, HITS DISCOUR...

Morgan Frost looked like the player who had a pair of 4-point games against the Arizona Coyotes last season, scoring on a penalty shot, and drawing the ‘Yotes into multiple penalties. Frost’s individual effort was enough in a sloppy game in South Philly, and John Tortorella motivated his club to a come-from-behind victory in the 3rd period. Bill, JP & Charlie break down the action, including Cam Atkinson’s role, Travis Sanheim’s re...

The Philadelphia Flyers have won 2 straight coming out of the All-Star break, and made it 3-in-a-row on Saturday night against former head coach Dave Hakstol’s new squad, the Seattle Kraken. Special teams scoring was the story in the first period, with Scott Laughton scoring his first power-play goal of the year and Ryan Poehling netted a shorty for the 2nd straight game in the first 20 minutes. Bill, JP & Charlie break down the ac...

Travis Konency led the way on Thursday night, putting on a show in the first period by recording a goal, an assist, and a fight for the Gordie How Hat Trick en route to Phill’s 2nd straight victory against a Playoff-bound team out of the All-Star break. After the first period, Ryan Poehling scored a shorthanded goal to put the Flyers up 4-0, and from there it was the Sam Ersson show. Ersson put up a 35-save shutout against the Jets...

It’s a jampacked edition of PHLY Flyers on this Wonderful Wednesday!

The Philadelphia Flyers have 32 regular season games remaining when the day started, and John Tortorella has called the stretch to the playoffs a sprint.

In the days leading up to the All-Star festivities, we’ve now already seen Elias Lindholm and Sean Monahan traded for substantial returns. The Flyers have several players who might be in demand ahead of the March 8 Trade Deadline, including Scott Laughton and Travis Konecny, and with a few trades happening earlier than usual, Bill, JP & Kelly debate whether that means we’ll see some action sooner than expected. Also, the gang trade...

On the day Mark Recchi was inducted into the Flyers Hall of Fame, the current roster got crushed by the league-leading Boston Bruins. Sam Ersson was replaced by Cal Petersen after Ersson allowed 4 goals on 14 shots in the first period, and not much really happened after that. David Pastrnak continued his dominance over Philly, Tyson Foerster scored a pretty nice goal to make it 5-1 in the 2nd period, and… that’s pretty much it. Cha...
