• Philadelphia Flyers Soar

    When the Flyers went into the offseason, they were worried about their defense. It’s no wonder either, since the team went 44-27 during last season and lost to the eventual champions in the first round of the playoffs. They have had trouble getting themselves the big plays during the post season over the last few years, and it tends to be because they have a weak defense that hasn’t made stops well. But this year will be different. The Flyers went out and picked up Chris Pronger, one of the leagues very best defensemen. He is, in fact, one of the top 5 in the NHL and gives the team that extra level of physical play that they need to add on defense. This is especially helpful when the team reaches the postseason against teams like the Penguins who are well-known for their physical style of play. And Pronger knows how to win, having won a Norris Trophy and contributed to a Stanley Cup team. They will also be relying on their effective offense that has worked well for them over the last few years. It’s going to be an exciting year for them, and you can get Philadelphia Flyers tickets to watch as they try to gain the upper hand in the Eastern Conference once more. Make sure that you are part of the Flyers’ new season by catching at least a game or two this year. The team is about the light up the ice and it’s going to be amazing to watch them do it!
