Hey Flyers, where are the anger and passion?
Let's pretend for the moment that the Flyers are a TV show. If so, they have gone from This Is Us to Two Broke Girls.



Carchidi: Flyers' season so far, from A to Z
Reviewing the Flyers' season to date, ABC-style: A is for anniversary year. In their 50th year, the Flyers have had numerous pregame celebrations at the Wells Fargo Center, honoring their past. The present has been pretty good, too. Thanks to a 9-2-1 December, the Flyers (20-12-4) have climbed into an Eastern Conference playoff spot.



Carchidi: Cousins gets a shot to show Flyers what he can be
Nick Cousins' journey - from overmatched AHL player to second-line center with the Flyers - is a credit to his perseverance.



Flyers need to be offensive in draft
The Flyers won't pick until 18th in the first round of the NHL draft on Friday, but based on their history and the fact that this is a deep draft, expect them to come home with a player who will be a major contributor down the road.



Can Flyers goalie Mason thwart the Caps like Halak did in 2010?
Not many people give the Flyers much of a chance in the opening round of the Stanley Cup playoffs against the class of the NHL, the Washington Capitals.



Michal Neuvirth's injury puts Flyers in a bind
The Flyers' playoff chances look a lot more precarious than they did a few days ago - and not just because they were manhandled Saturday by Pittsburgh in a critical matchup.



Inside the Flyers: How Willie O'Ree helped Wayne Simmonds believe in himself
Wayne Simmonds has blossomed into one of the league's most consistent right wingers, but if it wasn't for a trailblazer named Willie O'Ree, the Flyers forward might never have dreamed of reaching the NHL.



Inside the Flyers: Flyers appear headed in right direction
The Flyers aren't the NHL's most talented team, but they certainly rank among the most resilient. In the last month, they have overcome injuries to three top-six forwards - Claude Giroux, Jake Voracek, and Sean Couturier - and season-ending wrist surgery to defenseman Michael Del Zotto, their runaway leader in minutes per game.



Inside the Flyers: Inside the Flyers: Who will be the team's MVP?
With five weeks left in the regular season, the Flyers have 18 games to show whether they belong in the Stanley Cup playoffs.



It was 50 years ago the Flyers came to Philly
Fifty years ago Tuesday, Ed Snider, Jerry Wolman and others brought an NHL expansion team to Philadelphia. The Snider-Wolman relationship didn't last long. The Flyers? Their relationship with fans grew as they became one of the league's elite franchises.
