We all stayed up late Friday night to watch the Flyers lose to the Edmonton Oilers, and then we stayed up late again on Saturday to watch them do the same thing in Vancouver. You know the definition of insanity, right? Yeah. Anyhoo, despite the 5-1 loss we still had some things to talk about after the game, including:
Flyers are off until Tuesday when they take on the Red Wings at home. Enjoy the break, we all need it.
Hey, the Flyers lost again! What a shock! At least they didn’t blow a two-goal lead with 1:08 left in regulation this time. There were a few things to talk about after the team’s third straight loss, including:
It’s the second day of your weekend and after keeping you up late on your Friday, the Flyers are going to do it to you again as we kick off day two of this Flyers After Dark weekend. Tonight it’s the Vancouver Canucks, and to get ready for the game we were joined by Kent Basky of Nucks Misconduct to have a little chat about the Seattle Kraken’s biggest rival. We covered:
Tonight’s game won’t start until 10PM so have yourself a nap, Flyers fans. It’ll be a long night.
The Flyers are in Edmonton tonight, aaalllll the way at 9PM here on the East Coast, and the Flyers will be looking to rebound after that huge embarrassing failure in Calgary the other night. Edmonton for their part will be on the second half of a back-to-back and will be continuing to try and improve under new coach Ken Hitchcock. You remember our old pal Ken, right? Hopefully the Flyers will come to play and we’ll have ourselves a game. We were joined by Patrick Olsen of The Copper & Blue...
After a brief detour into complaining about The Hockey Team The Flyers, the gang turns its attention to more fun topics, such as Alex Ovechkin's ability to keep scoring goals despite his party-filled summer, the increase in offense so far in the NHL this season, and pucks bouncing off officials and ending up in the back of nets.
Another loss that is somehow both stunning and totally on brand. Twenty-two minutes for AMac. Ten minutes for Sanheim. At some point somebody is going to be held accountable. Will it be tomorrow? We can only hope. If we're to believe Ron Hextall was fired for being too patient, Chuck Fletcher better get something done fast.
After Pierre LeBrun talked about the fact Chuck Fletcher is reaching out to other general managers about trades, Steve and Craig look into possible deals the Flyers could make. The two also touch on Anthony Stolarz, Oskar Lindblom, and Dave Hakstol.
Are the Flyers the best bad team or the worst good team? The goalies, the coaches, the special teams, it’s all up for debate on the newest edition of BSH Radio. When will Fletcher make a move? Should Giroux stay at center? There’s a lot going on and we go through all of it on an episode full of fun and games.
One day after playing one of their best games of the season, the Flyers came out and sucked in the second and third to lose 7-1 to the Jets. A couple early Winnipeg goals, despite the orange and black playing well, just took the momentum from the previous day's victory and Michal Neuvirth wasn't much help in his second start of the season, allowing three scores on ten shots.
Missing number 1 enter Sean Couturier, the Flyers played one of their best team games of the season, defeating the Buffalo Sabres 6-2. Claude Giroux had a four point afternoon in his return to the center-ice position, Anthony Stolarz continued to look like an NHL netminder and a few struggling Flyers made cases for breaking out.
The Flyers erased a two-goal deficit in the third period on the strength of a Travis Sanheim breakout game, only to throw it away with more sloppiness and lose ten seconds into OT. Listen to the Facebook Live postgame with the Director of Fun & Games breaking down everybody's favorite inconsistent hockey team.
Steve and Craig talk at length (surprise) about the hiring of Chuck Fletcher. The two also discuss how well Stolarz will do with his shot in net, the team’s win over the Penguins, and what Fletcher’s first move as GM could be.
The guys also discuss their favorite Flyers of the 1990’s after Eric Lindros and John LeClair.
The Flyers continue to Do Stuff so the gang spends a few minutes discussing the Chuck Fletcher press conference and what our first impressions of the new GM are. Next is the Seattle expansion news and the other bits to come out of this week’s Board of Governors meetings. Finally, the hot teams in the Pacific and the newly Nylander’s Maple Leafs round out the hour.
Ron is gone and Chuck Fletcher is now the general manager of the hockey team the Flyers. The gang goes back to Hextall’s Friday press conference and moves the conversation along through this wacky week up until the replacement was announced. What to expect from the new guy? Where did Hexy go wrong? We talk about it all on the all new BSH Radio.
The Flyers played well the night after Ron Hextall was fired, at least for 40-50 minutes. Then all hell broke loose. Listen to Jake Voracek, Radko Gudas, Anthony Stolarz, Dave Hakstol and more talk about the third period collapse as well as the mindset in the locker room after a dramatic beginning to their work week.
The Flyers have officially named their new general manager and Chuck Fletcher is the guy. We called on our friends from Hockey Wilderness to get the deets and Tony Abbott joined us to give us some inside information about the man who will, hopefully, move the Flyers forward towards the ultimate prize.
The Flyers won a game! Philly earned their first victory of the post-Hextall era with a 4-2 effort in Pittsburgh. Anthony Stolarz, Wayne Simmonds, Dale Weise and Radko Gudas lead the charge in what was a physical and emotional contest.
Ahh, the Penguins. It's taken over a quarter of the season for us to meet up with our sworn enemies for the first time, but the day is upon us. And they're... not good? Playing poorly? Losing games regularly?? We should certainly not get ahead of ourselves given the current state of the Flyers but boy would it be nice to see our guys use this as an opportunity to beat up on a rival and get a much-needed win under their belts. To get a handle on what we should expect from this Penguins team,...
Steve and Craig are back at it to talk about who the next Philadelphia Flyers’ general manager will be. The two also discuss Tuesday’s press conference, the possibility of landing Jack Hughes, and the chances Dave Hakstol survives this franchise shakeup.
Yes, this is meant to be BSH Radio's All-NHL show. Yes, we usually use this show to go around the league and discuss the big stories and goings on. But this week the big story is your Philadelphia Flyers, and so we talk about it. The second round of firings, the culture Ron Hextall created, and where we go from here. But don't worry! We also touch on the red-hot Buffalo Sabres, the unspoken ban on offer sheets, and the soon-to-be-over (maybe!) William Nylander saga.
