Almost a quarter of the way through the 2013-14 season, things haven't worked out as expected. Most of the teams in the new eight-team Metropolitan Division have spent the first seven weeks of the season floundering.
Jaromir Jagr is still available. So is goalie Tim Thomas, who continues exploring whether to make a comeback after taking a season off.
Philadelphia Flyers captain Claude Giroux agreed to an eight-year extension worth over $64 million Thursday, according to a person familiar with the negotiations.
The Washington Capitals build a two-goal lead in the kind of fashion that usually leads to two points, scoring twice on the power play in the third period. Coach Adam Oates knew his team put itself in a “great position,” but in coughing up the lead and losing 5-4 in overtime to the Philadelphia Flyers on Sunday night, the Caps made their climb that much more difficult.
Blame it on fatigue. Blame it on a horrid start. Blame it on a lack of effort. A lot went wrong for the Washington Capitals in a dreadful, 4-1 loss on Wednesday night.
Flyers All-Star Claude Giroux received the wakeup call he waited to hear for 113 days.
Big East Commissioner John Marinatto resigned Monday after less than three years on the job, admitting he was drained by several high-profile defections and mounting pressure from school presidents upset with the departures.
Bronx cheers greeted the Philadelphia Flyers 10 minutes into Sunday's game when they finally got a shot on net. To say they weren't sharp after a week-long layoff would be an understatement.
Danny Briere overcame having an apparent game-winning overtime goal disallowed by scoring one that counted and giving the Philadelphia Flyers a 4-3 win over the New Jersey Devils in the first game of their second-round Stanley Cup playoff series.
Claude Giroux had his coach call him the best player in the world.
Sidney Crosby got too caught up in his hatred for the Philadelphia Flyers to recall that one of his best friends wears the orange and black.
Danny Briere, Matt Read and Max Talbot each scored two goals to lead the Philadelphia Flyers to an 8-4 victory over the Pittsburgh Penguins on Sunday in a fight-filled Game 3 in the opening-round series.
Flying sticks. Pointed fingers. Postgame putdowns. And that was just the coaches.
Braden Holtby embraces this.
Claude Giroux is tired of the story at this point. At the 2006 NHL draft, then-Philadelphia Flyers general manager Bobby Clarke forgot the name of the player he was taking 22nd overall.
"It's embarrassing to be playing in front of our fans and losing 7-0," Flyers captain Claude Giroux said. "It's not acceptable and we need to figure it out."
Giroux, speaking in a conference call because the team did not practice Monday, said the team is "panicking" and has lost confidence in its game against the Devils.
