*The Flyers really had no business winning that game, were lucky to get a point, and the shootout still stinks. RECAP!

*We got some good news yesterday on the defensive depth front:

*Things are not super great on the virus front generally, though. The Flyers play the Devils next week, and they might not have a goalie:

*And then the Canes have had their season paused until question mark thanks to an outbreak. [Canes Country]

*The Capitals will be without four of their best players after the broke Covid protocol... [AP]

*... and on top of that, their goaltender has tested positive. All of this is hanging together by a very thin thread, friends. [Japers’ Rink]

*Anyhoo, the Flyers. Now that we know that Phil Myers and Morgan Frost will both miss significant time, we get to see how the Flyers adjust and respond. [NBC Sports Philly]

*The first two next men up were Connor Bunnaman and Mark Friedman, who both made their debuts last night. They looked fine. [Inquirer]

*So... are you all feeling optimistic or pessimistic about this team right now? If the socials media are to be trusted, the fan base isn’t feeling great right now. We’re only five games in, fam. [The Athletic]

*And finally, in that vein, the latest episode of BSH Radio, in which assessments are made. Please to enjoy. [BSH]
