NHL: All Star Game-Skills Competition Aaron Doster-USA TODAY Sports

*How are we holding up, friends? Being isolated is hard, so if you know people for whom “social distancing” means being at home alone for days on end, check in on them. We can take care of each other. Anyhoo, the way things are developing has lead to the NHL pushing back the expected date of a return to hockey and is letting players go home to self-isolate. [AP]

*Let’s brighten things up a bit with a look at the best things about this year’s Flyers from our pal Charles. [The Athletic]

*And there may be no real hockey but there can always be fake hockey. [BSH]

*If the NHL season does end early there is no man with a better case for Coach of the Year than Alain Vigneault. [NBC Sports Philly]

*There have been a lot of ideas kicking around for what the NHL should do with the playoffs if they elect to have them. But this 24-team thing is the worst one, if you ask me. [ProHockeyTalk]

*There are much better and more reasonable ways to determine a winner of the Stanley Cup. Like these. [BSH]

*Power rankings, frozen in time, like what’s-his-face in the space metal or whatever. [ProHockeyTalk]

*Speaking of rankings, DGB is using his social distancing time to self-reflect and look back at his worst power rankings of the season. [The Athletic]

*And finally, what better time than now to learn a little bit about the folks here at Broad Street Hockey. So we’re going to let you in on what we’re doing to keep busy without the Flyers. Now you’ll know what a bunch of weirdos we are. [BSH]
