It’s been quite a year for the Philadelphia Flyers and the team is hoping to end it on a high note.
2015 is almost at a close. So many things in the world of sports have happened. For the Philadelphia Flyers, it’s a year that has seen some ups and downs. The loss of Mark Streit. The miracle and surprise that is rookie defensemen Shayne Gostisbehere. There are a lot of things that the Flyers can be grateful for as the year ends. A win over the San Jose Sharks would seal the deal and maybe serve as a good luck entering the new year. With only one day left in 2015, tonight could be a good way to ring out the Flyers’ year. So pull up a chair, grab your favorite Flyers fan and read the latest headlines on Wednesday’s Buzz on the Street.

The San Jose Sharks and the Philadelphia Flyers will each have a key player return to the lineup when they meet at the SAP Center on Wednesday. Sharks center Logan Couture will be back in action after missing the past seven games following right thigh surgery to stop arterial bleeding. Defensemen Mark Streit (pubic plate surgery) was activated from injured reserve and will return after missing the past 19 games for the Flyers, who will have Michal Neuvirth in net.

By putting Sam Gagner on waivers Tuesday to make room for Mark Streit, the Flyers also cleared enough salary-cap space to keep impressive rookie defensemen Shayne Gostisbehere on the roster. Now that he knows that he’s staying, Gostisbehere won’t rest on his laurels. He has 14 points in 19 games.

Sometimes things just come together that look like they would make for a perfect picture. Cole Palmer at The Hockey Comic found a perfect opportunity to draw up a potential scenario. Sunday’s game against the Anaheim Ducks saw five of the Flyers’ players in the penalty box in the first five minutes of the game. The Hockey Comic created a scenario where instead of being miserable in the sin bin, everyone seems to be having a good time. Click the link above to see the picture.
