Meltzer’s Musings: Flyers Tame Wild, Night Before Christmas

FLYERS TAME WILD, START ROAD TRIP WITH THREE WINS

The Philadelphia Flyers could not have asked for a better start to their eight game road trip: wins over the Toronto Maple Leafs, Winnipeg Jets and Minnesota Wild. The club heads into the three-night Christmas break with an even 14-14-6 ledger for the season after grabbing points in nine of the last 10 games (6-1-3).

On Tuesday night in St.

Mason Injured at Practice

What was to have been a routine practice before the team traveled to Toronto for the first game of an eight-game road trip turned ugly for the Philadelphia Flyers. Starting goaltender Steve Mason, whose play has been one of the few bright spots on the team, went down with an injury.

According to the reporters at practice in Voorhees -- with the Flyers' homestand concluded, I am in transit tod

FLYERS FINISH FIVE-POINT HOMESTAND WITH A SHOOTOUT LOSS TO FLORIDA, 2-1

In a game that largely similar to Tuesday's low-energy, low-scoring affair that ended in a 3-1 loss to Tampa Bay, the Philadelphia Flyers managed to take one point from a 2-1 shootout loss to the Florida Panthers. The Flyers finished their four-game homestand with a 2-1-1 record; a bit of a disappointment after the club sta

Flyers Post-Practice Updates: Lecavalier Seems Likely to Return

The Flyers held an optional practice on Wednesday at the Skate Zone in Voorhees, NJ. Flyers head coach Craig Berube said he made it an optional because he saw the team's energy drop in last night's 3-1 loss to Tampa Bay and it was not for lack of players trying to dig deep. Actually, Berube said he felt both the Flyers and Lightning lacked energy and it was a rather boring game.

Tampa Not Too Tired To Stifle Flyers, 3-1

The Philadelphia Flyers did not play terribly against the Tampa Bay Lightning in a 3-1 loss at the Wells Fargo Center on Tuesday night. However, they simply did not generate nearly enough speed through the neutral zone, get enough shots in quantity or quality or win enough 50-50 puck battles to win a tight-checking game.

The Bolts, playing for the th
