Is Philadelphia Turning Into a Hockey Town?

As much as the City of Brotherly Love is passionate about our sports teams, it’s apparent that Philadelphians play favorites. To be more specific, the city has always primarily focused on the Eagles and the Sixers above all else. Every now and then, the Phillies will steal the spotlight, such as in the late 2000s and early 2010s. But under very rare circumstances has Philadelphia ever been a hockey-centric town, with the Flyers falling at the bottom of the city’s four major sports teams. However, that has started to change over the recent weeks. Continue reading

As the 2019 NFL season wraps up, the Philadelphia Eagles are beginning to see how they can improve their roster and improve from two consecutive disappointing 9-7 seasons. While they did manage to steal the NFC East crown away from the Dallas Cowboys this year, they did it with what was mainly a practice squad offense, as their key running backs and wide receivers either couldn’t stay healthy or proved to be ineffective.  Continue reading

So…Are the Flyers Actually This Good?

We’re more than two months into the season, and the Philadelphia Flyers are squarely in the mix as legitimate Stanley Cup Playoff contenders. They’ve been dominating in games played at the Wells Fargo Center, allowing fewer goals than all but four teams, killing over 80% of opposing power plays, and winning more faceoffs than anyone else. They’re currently neck-and-neck with the Pittsburgh Penguins, and well ahead of the Tampa Bay Lightning and Toronto Maple Leafs. Just like everyone expected!

With all the hype and expectations that had been built up during the offseason, one would expect the Sixers to be a bit more dominant in the East thus far. After a scorching-hot 5-0 start, Philly has cooled off a bit and seems to be struggling to finish out games they should be winning. When the Sixers go into these kinds of slumps, it’s easy for the finger-pointing to start – whether it’s towards coach Brett Brown or Ben Simmons or some other factor. This time around, however, there seems to be a culprit gaining traction that some believe is the cause of their demise: load management. Continue reading
