Valtteri Filppula put an end to his 11-game goalless drought in Sunday's 6-2 win over the Penguins.

Filppula's second-period goal allowed the Flyers to jump ahead 2-1 in the game and they never looked back. He has nine goals and 29 assists in 72 games this season. He doesn't need to be owned in standard fantasy leagues.

Dale Weise scored in Sunday's 6-2 win over the Philadelphia Flyers.

After scoring just twice in his first 50 games of the season, Weise has now found the back of the net three times in his last seven contests. The Flyers forward has just 10 points in 57 games, which means he isn't worth owning in standard fantasy leagues.

Jordan Weal picked up a goal and an assist in Sunday's 6-2 win over the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Weal tied the game at one with less than one minute remaining in the first period and he also helped set up Valtteri Filppula's go-ahead goal (2-1) in the second frame. Weal finished the game with a plus-1 rating and three shots on goal in 13:06 of ice time. The Flyers forward has five goals and two assists in 17 games. He shouldn't pop up on your fantasy radar. "Weal continues to impress," said goalie Steve Mason after the win. "He's like a little water bug out there. He just moves, moves, moves _ and it's tough to contain him."

Mar 26 - 10:53 PM

Mar 26 - 6:51 PM

Steve Mason is projected to start for the Flyers Sunday night.

Mar 26 - 6:19 PM

Michal Neuvirth stopped 20 of 21 shots in a 1-0 loss to Columbus.

Neuvirth has now dropped his last four decisions, although this is a particularly tough loss to swallow. He has a 10-11-1 record with the Flyers this season.
Mar 25 - 4:59 PM

Travis Konecny fired a team-high five shots in a 1-0 loss to Columbus on Saturday.

Philadelphia out shot Columbus 36-21, but it didn't matter. The Flyers are now 34-32-8 as they continue to fade from the playoff race.
Mar 25 - 4:57 PM

Michal Neuvirth will probably play between the pipes on Saturday.

It will be Neuvirth's first start since March 9. He has a 2.91 GAA and .887 save percentage in 26 games this season.
Mar 25 - 11:53 AM

Travis Konecny has been gaining a great understanding of how to play in the NHL as his rookie season progresses.

"You start to realize there's more room than you think there is," Konecny said. "A lot of times you get the puck and think a guy's going to be right on you. But the NHL is all about gaps, and sometimes the guy might be pressuring you and he backs off. If you have patience and allow yourself to slow down the game a little bit, it starts to open up. That's what I'm starting to do - holding onto the puck and kind of waiting for my opportunity instead of trying to force something. It can help you make more plays." Konecny has found himself listed as a healthy scratch, but he's had a solid rookie campaign overall with 11 goals and 27 points in 61 games. He's probably never going to be a major offensive force, but he should continue to grow in that regard.
Mar 25 - 10:41 AM

Steve Mason earned his 100th career victory with Philadelphia on Thursday.

Mason ranks third on the Flyers' all-time goaltenders wins chart, behind Bernie Parent (232 wins) and Ron Hextall (240). Since joining the Flyers during the 2011-12 campaign, Mason has been more hit than miss in Philadelphia, but this season has been an exception as he has a 2.73 GAA and .906 save percentage in 53 contests. He's eligible to become an unrestricted free agent this summer and there's a good chance that the Flyers will let him walk.
Mar 24 - 10:07 AM

Steve Mason allowed one goal on 25 shots in Thursday's 3-1 win over the Minnesota Wild.

Mason allowed the first goal of the game to Zach Parise early in the opening frame, but he responded by shutting the door on the Wild after that point. Mason has now won two of his last three games, and he currently owns a 22-21-7 record. He'll enter his next start with 2.73 goals-against-average and a .906 save percentage.
Mar 24 - 12:26 AM

Sean Couturier found the back of the net in Thursday's 3-1 win over the Minnesota Wild.

Couturier tied the game at one with his goal at the 17:59 mark of the first period. He finished the game with a plus-2 rating, two shots on goal and one takeaway in 19:53 of ice time. The Flyers forward has accumulated seven points in his last six games. Couturier is up to 12 goals and 15 assists in 57 games this season. Matt Read and Jakub Voracek also scored for the Flyers.
Mar 24 - 12:17 AM

Steve Mason is expected to get the net nod on Thursday against the Wild.

In nine games during the month of March, Mason has posted a 4-4-1 record with a .913 save percentage and a 2.51 GAA. He also beat Minnesota earlier in the season, stopping 19 of 20 shots in the affair.
