Orange & Black Breakdown

Game 13: NJ @ PHI

The Flyers have a quick turnaround as they face off against the Devils.  While the Flyers were busy notching a win within the first 7 minutes of the game, the Devils were off giving up a natural hat trick to Joffrey Lupul.  It could have been worse for the Devils thanks to an amazing save by the ageless relic known as Marty Brodeur.  Keys for tonight’s game and the sick save by Mr. Brodeur after the jump…

Sorry Buffalo, ‘revenge’ is not on the menu tonight

What more could you want when you go into another team’s barn without key players and come out with a W.  They may have not played the best offensively, but they showed vast improvements in the defensive end.  Defensemen did not make any glaring mistakes tonight and the Flyers kept them to the outside all night.  More after the jump…

Game 12: PHI @ BUF

Now that the first month of the season is over, it is going to be interesting to see how this team holds up considering the team is either young and new to the NHL grind or old and beaten up from the from the long, drawn-out NHL season.  With Briere, Read, Schenn, and Pronger out, you can only hope that the rest of the team avoids getting bit by the injury bug.  We’ll see after the jump if the Flyers lineup, which consists of 5 rookies tonight, will hold steady against a formidable Sabres team.

#FF: Flyer Friday (New and Improved Formula!)

Initially, the plan with this column was to take a more relaxed approach to the topics swirling around the Flyers, but it didn’t really work out that way. With the addition of Vindisi to The OBB, that plan is back in action.

So if you’re looking for a way to spend your time after a hectic workweek (or before the starting your weekend), join us for our discussion on all things Flyers after the jump

Game 10: WPG@ PHI

Wow.  Last night’s game is one where you take the tapes and throw them out.  The 2nd and 3rd periods were downright awful to watch.  There were too many defensive miscues, and puck possession was downright atrocious.  Oh and to add insult to injury, Brayden Schenn has a broken foot.  Plus side, the injury now allows Cooter to get more minutes.  After the jump, a quick write up on tonight’s game.

Game 9: PHI @ MTL

The Flyers GM has never been one to sit on his hands and hope that things work itself out.  With that, there have been reports that Paul Holmgren was in Columbus yesterday, but for what could be anybody’s guess (Detroit played Columbus last night).  After the jump, I will give you some possible scenarios to let your mind race a little before the pre-game write-up for tonight’s game against the Habs.

Curly headed duo shine in win

Or is shimmer a better way to describe it.  Alright, enough of the hair jokes.  The Flyers have gone from dominating the first period to downright overwhelming teams in the 2nd stanza the past few games.  Problem is the results weren’t showing until tonight.  Stat of the night after the jump that I’m still having trouble wrapping my mind around.

Game 8: TOR @ PHI

The Toronto Maple Leafs make their first trip to the Wells Fargo Center tonight to take on the Flyers. After the jump we look at who’s hot, who’s not and what the Flyers will need to do in order to end their meager losing streak.

Game 7: STL @ PHI

The last time the Flyers took the ice for a game, the Washington Capitals brought them back down to earth. Still sitting rather pretty with a 4-1-1 record, it’s time for this bunch to sing the sweet song of redemption at the expense of a rather gullible opponent.

About Orange & Black Breakdown

The Orange & Black Breakdown looks to be the ultimate, around the clock source for news and information on the Philadelphia Flyers organization and it’s ever-present quest for the Stanley Cup. Focusing on what the team can do to achieve success is the ultimate goal.

The OBB is written and maintained by myself - Marc Siciliano. I’m a college graduate and media production professional in the sports industry with credits on projects like Hard Knocks: Bengals and 24/7 Penguins vs. Capitals: Road to the Winter Classic. A man of many hobbies, I always seem to find a way to spend a disproportionate amount of my daily routine with two things: Flyers hockey and social media (much to the dismay of my hockey impartial friends on twitter).

So what does this mean for you? The plan is to combine these time-wasting habits passions with my love for writing to provide you with complete coverage of the Flyers from both my head and around the web, 24/7.

This is my second writing stint focusing on the Flyers, but for a much larger audience - so do be gentle. Different perspectives and opinions on the organization are welcome and encouraged. Just because I see it one way doesn’t mean I’m beyond seeing it your way as well, so speak up!

I’m always interested in interacting with readers, so find me on twitter (@marcs797) or email me (theobbreakdown@gmail.com) and let’s talk hockey.

Thanks for reading; Lets go Flyers!
