Heather Barry

*The Flyers took care of the Buffalo Sabres Saturday night to make it 1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8-NINE straight wins. This is so fun. Here’s what we learned. [BSH]

*The win made Carter Hart a part of NHL history. First time of many, one assumes. [Inquirer]

*It wasn’t a great start to the game for the boys, but Claude Giroux took control of things in the second and never looked back. [ProHockeyTalk]

*But don’t discount the importance of Carter Hart, friends. And don’t say his friggin’ name with a Boston accent COME ON. [ProHockeyTalk]

*We’ve got a tough week ahead of us here though. A Real Test™, as they say. [Inquirer]

*Meltzer has a few obvs from this weekend’s game, and also the Phantoms. [Hockeybuzz]

*Speaking of the Phantoms, here’s what they got up to last week. [BSH]

*Alain Vigneault wants this whole damn city to be Flyer’d up, so tell you friends the Good News about the Philadelphia Flyers this week. [Inquirer]

*This success seems to be fueled by many things, but chief among them might just be how close this team is off the ice. [NBC Sports Philly]

*So! Let’s start thinking about playoff matchups. [BSH]

*Everyone is losing their minds about coronovirus, so the NHL are kicking the media and their dirty hands out of locker rooms. [Yahoo Sports Canada]

*The Flyers, though, have let the germy media remain for now. [Courier-Post]

*In really bad new, though, the IIHF has canceled the Women’s Worlds that was to be played in Halifax this month. Nova Scotia folks was super pumped about this tournament so it’s a real bummer that it won’t be happening. [The Ice Garden]

*Bryce Harper is Flyer’d up. [NBC Sports Philly]

*Chad Ochocinco is Flyer’d up?? lmfao okay! [NBC Sports Philly]

*Last week we brought you the first of many bandwagon guides for new fans, but here’s another one in case your friends need some help before hopping on. [Courier-Post]
