    Flyers' Wayne Simmonds: Simmonds snags goal in route of Buffalo

    Simmonds added a goal in Thursday's 5-1 drubbing of the Sabres. That's goal number 20 for the lengthy winger, whose 36 points and 110 PIM are only dampened by his minus-7 rating. With just under 30 games to play, Simmer looks poised to surpass his totals from last year, but still fall short of career highs.

    Flyers' Wayne Simmonds: Avoids Suspension

    Simmonds has avoided supplemental discipline from the league after receiving a match penalty Saturday, and will be in the lineup Sunday to take on Washington, Dave Isaac of the Courier-Post reports. Simmonds won't have his match penalty rescinded, leaving him with two for the year, meaning his next game misconduct will carry an automatic one-game suspension. Since being moved to the top line with Claude Giroux and Jake Voracek, Simmer has six goals and eight points in his last five games. Don't expect Simmonds' close brush with supplemental discipline to keep him from being a physical factor in Sunday's game.

    Flyers' Wayne Simmonds: Tossed from Saturday's matinee

    Simmonds was ejected Saturday afternoon after punching Rangers defenseman Ryan McDonagh in the head with his glove on. Simmonds received a match penalty and game misconduct, adding up to a whopping 20 penalty minutes in what ended as a 3-2 win for the visiting Rangers. A match penalty is assessed when there is a deliberate attempt to injury another player. In the first period, McDonagh responded to a hit from Simmonds by cross-checking him near his upper-body. The gesture didn't go over well with Simmonds as he slashed the defenseman and punched him in the face, resulting in McDonagh leaving the game with an apparent injury after 4:21 of ice time. Thirteen penalties were handed out in this contest - including slashing and hi-sticking minors for McDonagh. Per NHL rules, Simmonds is suspended as a result of the match penalty, pending official review by league Commissioner Gary Bettman.

    Flyers' Wayne Simmonds: Nine points in five games

    Simmonds exploded for two more goals -- one on the power play -- and an assist Thursday in a 6-3 victory at Nashville. He added two PIM and a plus-3 rating. Simmonds has been burning it up over the last five games, racking up six goals and three helpers, and it's caused him to slow down his PIM production a bit, well, fantasy owners aren't complaining. After all, he's picked up a power-play point in every game of this streak and is still providing a strong dose of hits.

    Flyers' Wayne Simmonds: Declaring open season on opposing goalies

    Simmonds took eight shots and scored two goals -- one on the power play -- in Tuesday's 4-2 victory over the Canadiens. That's now four goals and six points in the last four games for Simmonds, who's taken a stunning 24 shots on goal in that span. Like most of the Flyers, he slumped through the beginning of the season, but January was Simmonds' best month (nine points in 11 games) and February is certainly off to a fine start. His combination of power-play production and pugilism remains quite welcome on fantasy rosters of nearly all shapes and sizes.

    Flyers' Wayne Simmonds: Scores two goals on nine shots in loss

    Simmonds scored both Philadelphia goals Monday but it wasn't enough in a 3-2 loss to the visiting Bruins. He also fired a whopping nine shots on goal. Simmonds threw a ton of rubber at Tuukka Rask but wasn't able to deliver the hat trick in a game where he also racked up five hits and a minor penalty. He's now got 14 goals to go with his 14 assists, 88 PIM and 111 shots on goal this season and will continue to be relied upon by Philly for secondary scoring behind Claude Giroux and Jakub Voracek.

    Flyers' Wayne Simmonds: Grabs helper in shootout win

    Simmonds collected a helper and two PIM in Sunday's 2-1 win over Detroit. He nearly had himself a three-game goal streak and a game-winner, but referees called him for interference on goalkeeper Petr Mrazek. He does, however, own a three-game points streak, and he'll see if it continues when he faces the Maple Leafs Tuesday at home.

    Flyers' Wayne Simmonds: Tallies late in loss

    Simmonds grabbed a power play goal in the third to help force overtime in Saturday's shootout loss to the Rangers. Goals in back-to-back games has Simmonds inching up toward a high-20s goal pace, where you hope to see him. The production has come a little slower this year, but it's a good sign that the well is far from dry.

    Flyers' Wayne Simmonds: Scores power-play goal in win

    Simmonds potted a power-play goal in Tuesday's 4-3 win over Montreal. Despite playing just a shade under 15 minutes, Simmonds managed to find the net on one of his two shots, deflecting Shayne Gostisbehere's rifle to find cloth. Simmonds has registered a point in three straight games, and he'll look to further that streak Thursday in Minnesota.

    Flyers' Wayne Simmonds: Adds assist in Wednesday's loss

    Simmonds collected helper number 11 on the season in a 4-2 loss to the Sharks. Simmonds is on pace for his worst offensive season in three years, but is eyeing a career-high in PIM (186). With the holiday break behind him, Simmer will look to avoid another 16-game stretch in which he tallies a mere four points (he did that in an October/November drought). He's been more consistent of late, and there's no doubt he can turn things around in the second half of the season. But he'll need his team to continue showing signs of life. He faces the Kings on Saturday afternoon, a team which blanked him earlier in the season.
