Flyers blow two leads, end season in Game 6 disappointment

  In a memorable (but for many, also forgettable) Game 6 in Philadelphia, the Penguins proved too opportunistic — and talented — for the fledgling Flyers to defeat to force a Game 7, faltering 8-5 to end their up and down season. If nothing else, Sunday afternoon's tilt...

Penguins playing at championship level in playoffs against Flyers

The Pittsburgh Penguins didn’t look this good during the regular season. They didn’t even look this good in any of the four regular season games when they swept and outscored the Flyers, 20-11. They weren’t this fast. They weren’t this strong along the boards. They weren...

Flyers continue scoring struggles in Game 4, Penguins take commanding lead

The Penguins are better than the Flyers. The only real way to refute that is to expect Philadelphia to win three straight games — two of them in Pittsburgh, and after a 5-0 dismembering in Game 4 Wednesday night, Philly seems destined to allow a 3-1 series deficit into a series defeat. The...

Glen Macnow: Welcome to the Platinum Era of Philly Sports

The decade between 1974-83 is recognized as Philadelphia’s Golden Era of Sports – with four world titles, seven other trips to the championships and at least 15 future hall of famers wandering our fair city. We’ve had episodes of false hope since then. I recall going on air July...

Inconsistent Flyers decimated by Penguins, again, in Game 3

With the Wells Fargo Center buzzing, playoff hockey returned to Philadelphia with fans wondering which Flyers would show up for Game 3. Would it be the 7-0 losers from an embarrassing game one loss? Or the confident 5-1 winners from Friday’s equalizer? It didn’t take long for 18,000...

The best postseason series in North American sports, the NHL's Stanley Cup Playoffs, gets underway on Wednesday night. That's right, I didn't stutter. It's far and away better than the MLB, NFL and NBA playoffs (in my opinion). More than half of the league's 31 teams, 16 in...

Glen Macnow: Gazing into the crystal ball for Sixers, Flyers playoff runs

It’s been ages since we’ve shined up the spring playoffs crystal ball. The Flyers missed three of the past five Stanley Cup tourneys before this week. And the Sixers – well Ben Simmons was a 15-year-old Aussie, just choosing basketball over rugby, when they last went to the post-...

2018 NHL Mock Draft: Sabres, Senators favored for Rasmus Dahlin

Somehow, some way, the 2017-18 NHL regular season will come to a close in less than a week, bringing in the offseason for almost half of the league.  For the first time this decade, there will not be a team from New York in the playoffs as both the Islanders and Rangers are wrapping up...

Bruins continue doing Flyers favors as Philly playoff berth nears

The Flyers reduced their magic number to lock up a playoff berth to three points over the holiday weekend, thanks almost entirely to the Bruins and a resurgent Petr Mrazek.
