No matter what sport and team you look at, there’s always that one glue guy. This player is on a team forever and does nearly everything that’s asked by their coach, but flies under the radar. During my typical nightly perusing of Twitter the other day, I noticed some fans bashing one of the biggest […]Read more "A Quick Michael Raffl Appreciation Piece"
During the last home game of each season, the Philadelphia Flyers hand out a list of team awards. As you will see below, there are six awards that range from team MVP to most improved.

In a very up and down game five, we saw the highs and lows of the Flyers. Their power play was finally showing some type of promise, however, the Canadiens out-Flyered the Flyers. Each time the orange and black would get something going, the Habs would instantly fire back with a goal.

As Dave also notes, “Burks has really struggled to land a solidified role with the Sixers since […]Read more "Could Alec Burks be just what the Sixers need right now?"
To begin this season, we’ve seen the Phillies struggle. And by struggle, they struggled bad. Their bullpen has been atrocious, leading to Joe Girardi having to try a bunch of different options. Again, all of which were simply just bad. However, the relievers have been starting to perform at a slightly less historically bad rate. […]Read more "Phillies’ bats, led by a goose, are red hot to start the season"
The Flyers showed why they earned the first seed in game four. After an early goal by Michael Raffl, the Flyers controlled the tempo throughout the entire game. This, of course, leading to the 2-0 lead, giving them a 3-1 edge in the series. Goaltender Carter Hart has been an absolute brick wall in back-to-back […]Read more "How the Flyers can overthrow Canadiens in game 5"
For anyone who was following the Flyers while Danny Briere was a staple on the team, it’s no secret how well he performed when it mattered most. Danny Briere was easily one of the best scorers in Flyers’ playoff history, and was even considered the best in NHL history.

There are three guarantees in life: death, taxes, and the Phillies dropping a series to the Marlins to begin an underwhelming season. From there, things have not really gotten much better. The Phillies are coming off of a devastating, and incredibly embarrassing, series sweep of the Baltimore Orioles. In that series, the Phillies had multiple […]Read more "Phillies look to bounce back against Mets: Series Preview"
