*The Flyers, who played a couple of good games under their new coach, went back to ass last night and dropped a SO loss to the actual worst team in the Eastern Conference. Streak’s over. Look for some things we learned from this game later this morning.
*In case you missed it, Charlie had an excellent article yesterday on what is a rather quickly-growing Covid problem in the NHL right now. [The Athletic]
