Following a brief two-game road trip through Florida in which the Philadelphia Flyers fell in games against the Florida Panthers and Tampa Bay Lightning, the Orange and Black were quick to right the ship and have gone 3-1 in their last four games. Upon returning home from their tour of Florida, the Flyers were faced […]

After a more than disappointing start to the season, the Philadelphia Flyers finally seem to be turning things around. The Orange and Black have gone 6-2-1 in their last nine games to put themselves back into the playoff picture after the first quarter of the season. The Flyers have found their scoring touch in their […]
The Drexel club ice hockey team took to the ice for the second game of a home-and-home series against Lebanon Valley College. Coming off a 4-3 road win the night before, the Dragons were back on the ice Nov. 16 for a 7:45 puck drop at the Class of 1923 Arena. Although they were outshot […]
The men’s club hockey team took to the ice this past weekend against the Mountain Hawks of Lehigh University. The puck dropped at 7:45 p.m. Nov. 9 when the Dragons took on a league opponent at the Class of 1923 Arena. The two teams compete in the Eastern Collegiate Hockey Association, and the last time […]
“We hate them.” It didn’t take much thought for Drexel club ice hockey captain Andrew MacBride to express the relationship between his Dragons and their opponent, West Chester University. Really, the words themselves weren’t necessary — although it did bring a smirk to his face to actually say it — because the Rams and Dragons […]
The Philadelphia Flyers experienced this past season what nobody in the City of Brotherly Love expected: regression. After tangoing with, and topping, the rival Pittsburgh Penguins in the first round of the 2012 Stanley Cup Playoffs just one season before, this year was a marked step backward. The team underperformed at every position, and the […]
On June 18, 2007, the lowly Philadelphia Flyers lost the NHL Draft Lottery despite being the worst team in the league. The Chicago Blackhawks, only the fifth-worst squad that year, drafted a highly regarded American right wing with the No. 1 overall selection. His name was Patrick Kane. On June 9, 2010, Kane squeaked a […]
Of all of the storylines that have emerged in this year’s Stanley Cup Playoffs, the most intriguing one has to be that the final four teams left in the playoffs are the last four teams that have won it all. The Los Angeles Kings, the Boston Bruins, the Chicago Blackhawks and the Pittsburgh Penguins have […]
Well, it’s finally coming down to the 11th hour. The National Hockey League season may be in jeopardy for the second time since the 2004-05 season. The probability of the season starting on time is unlikely. While this is just the first round of offers and counteroffers between the NHL Players’ Association and the owners, […]
The Philadelphia Flyers had an overall successful season. There weren’t too many expectations going into the season because the team was, for the most part, brand new. The common thought among “hockey people” is that trading away a former 40-goal scorer and a team captain could set the organization back a few years. The Flyers […]
Superstitions exist in all sports, but hockey players are known to take them to another level. Every player has his own pregame ritual that stretches beyond the game itself. Whether it’s having spaghetti and meatballs or a porterhouse steak from an expensive steakhouse, every player likes to stay in his comfort zone. During rituals in […]
The already exciting season for the Drexel men’s ice hockey team is just getting started. The Dragons won their first Eastern Collegiate Hockey Association Tournament title since 2005 with a 7-2 victory Feb. 19 over Lebanon Valley College. Drexel finished the season with a 24-11-0 overall record and, in addition to the tournament title, won […]
It’s a little after 7 p.m and the cold wind is blowing. The Hall of Fame Club level of Citizens Bank Park is full to capacity as the players walk out of the tunnel, through the dugout and onto the field, finally making their way onto the ice rink located in shallow center field. The […]
For the first time since 2007, a Canadian team will participate in the Stanley Cup Finals in the hopes of bringing the Stanley Cup back home to Canada — where it hasn’t been since 1993. As expected, the Vancouver Canucks have made the journey all the way to the Stanley Cup Finals. Before this season […]
The National Hockey League in Winnipeg. For some reason that has a familiar ring to it — oh that’s right, Winnipeg already had a team, but because they weren’t selling tickets, they lost the team to a more promising market: Phoenix (more specifically, Glendale). Boy did that go well. Well, the franchise formally known as […]
The NHL says goodbye to a fighter with a kind heart. The Hockey News reported that former Minnesota Wild and New York Ranger Derek Boogaard was found dead in his Minneapolis, Minn., apartment May 13. He was only 28 years old. No foul play is suspected. Boogaard’s history of concussions was discussed as a possible […]
Just one year after arguably the best comeback in National Hockey League playoff history and a trip to the Stanley Cup Finals, the Philadelphia Flyers are sitting on the outside looking in for the last two rounds of the playoffs. The goalie questions are still present, and more rumors are surfacing that team captain Mike […]
