  • Flyers' Samuel Ersson: Falls in finale

    Ersson stopped 16 of 17 shots in Tuesday's 2-1 loss to the Capitals.

    Ersson was solid Tuesday, holding Washington to an Alex Ovechkin goal in the first period. However, with the Flyers needing a regulation win to stay alive in the playoff hunt, Ersson went to the bench with the game tied 1-1 in the third period, allowing TJ Oshie to score the game-winner in an empty net. While it was an inconsistent year for Ersson overall, he finished strong, going 2-1-0 while allowing just two goals on 62 shots over his final three outings. He'll finish the season 23-19-7 with an .890 save percentage and 2.82 GAA.

    Ersson made 20 saves in a 1-0 win over the Devils on Saturday.

It was his second consecutive game where he allowed one or fewer goals after he surrendered 26 goals in his previous six starts. Ersson has four shutouts on the season, and he's the first Flyers' netminder to put up four since Steve Mason did it in 2015-16.

  • Flyers' Samuel Ersson: Mercy pull against Habs

    Ersson surrendered five goals on 17 shots Tuesday before being pulled in the second frame of a 9-3 loss to Montreal.

    His team seemingly forgot how to play and left Ersson on his own. His pull came after giving up four goals in under three minutes of action in the second period. Fatigue may be playing a role for Ersson, who is 0-4-1 in his last six starts with two early departures. He has started 46 games this season, a huge spike from last season when he started just 10 contests.

    Ersson struggled in his last start Saturday against Columbus, surrendering six goals on 33 shots en route to an ugly 6-2 defeat. He'll try to snap his personal four-game losing streak in a road matchup with a struggling Montreal team that's lost four of its last five games.

  • Flyers' Samuel Ersson: Surrenders six goals

    Ersson stopped 27 of 33 shots in Saturday's 6-2 loss to the Blue Jackets.

    Ersson had a very tough night. He allowed two goals in each period, including one on the power play, yet he faced six fewer shots than opposing netminder Jet Greaves did at the other end of the ice. Including Saturday's performance, Ersson has not had a save percentage above .900 since March 23, which unsurprisingly was his last victory. The Flyers are battling for a playoff position, but Ersson is a difficult goalie to trust for fantasy managers.

  • Flyers' Samuel Ersson: Yanked after first period

    Ersson allowed two goals on six shots in the first period before getting pulled during Monday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Islanders.

Even without those recent rough starts, he's at an .891 save percentage through 46 games. With how he's been playing, there are almost certainly better options in net for fantasy managers on any given night.

  • Flyers' Samuel Ersson: Facing Blackhawks

  • Flyers' Samuel Ersson: Falls to Habs

    Ersson turned aside 13 of 15 shots in Thursday's 4-1 loss to the Canadiens, with Montreal's final two goals getting scored into an empty net.

    The 24-year-old netminder wasn't busy, but the Habs took advantage of their chances -- both pucks that beat Ersson came from in close, as the Flyers' defense gave Nick Suzuki and Jesse Ylonen a little too much space in front of the net. Ersson has seen a heavy workload in March, going 4-4-3 over 11 starts with a 3.34 GAA and .875 save percentage as Philly clings to a playoff spot in the Eastern Conference.

  • Flyers' Samuel Ersson: Starting on Thursday

    Ersson will patrol the visiting crease in Montreal on Thursday.

    Ersson's play has been spotty over the last seven games, as he is 3-2-2 with a 4.16 GAA and an .861 save percentage over that stretch. Overall, he is 21-14-7 with three shutouts this season. Ersson picked up the win in his only appearance this year versus the Canadiens, giving up two goals on 19 shots in a 3-2 shootout victory Jan. 10.

  • Flyers' Samuel Ersson: Falls in OT on Broadway

    Ersson turned aside 21 shots in Tuesday's 6-5 overtime loss to the Rangers.

    After a scoreless first period, the game began to get away from both netminders, and what looked like it might be a goaltending duel between Ersson and Igor Shesterkin turned into a barn burner. The six goals were the most Ersson had given up since he got beaten seven times by the Ducks on Oct. 28, but the performance continues a shaky March for the Flyers rookie. Over 10 outings on the month, he's gone 4-3-3 with a 3.48 GAA and .876 save percentage. Philly is now only one point up on Washington for third place in the Metropolitan Division, and three points up on Detroit for the final wild-card berth in the Eastern Conference.

  • Flyers' Samuel Ersson: Starting in New York

    Ersson will guard the road goal against the Rangers on Tuesday, Jordan Hall of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.

    Ersson was decent in his last start Saturday versus the Bruins, turning aside 18 of 20 shots en route to a 3-2 victory. He'll attempt to secure his 22nd win of the season in a rough road matchup with a New York squad that's 25-9-0 at home this year.

  • Flyers' Samuel Ersson: Nabs win over Boston

    Ersson made 18 saves in Saturday's 3-2 win over the Bruins.

    Ersson had a shutout bid that wasn't interrupted until a Justin Brazeau goal midway through the third period. The 24-year-old goalie was beaten again, this time by Danton Heinen, but Ersson still did enough to collect his 21st victory of 2023-24. The netminder's numbers have taken a step back in March, perhaps due to fatigue as he has seen a big workload for the first campaign in the NHL. Ersson has gone 4-3-2 with an .889 save percentage through nine outings this month.
