*We’re between games, which means we have time to look at six interesting stats from the Flyers’ two games against the Islanders. [BSH]

*The penalty kill has been good. Really good. That’s a statistic, in a way. [Inquirer]

*Despite the messiness and the periodic ugliness, the Flyers are winning games by hook and by crook and in the process getting off to the best start since the 2002-03 season. Bet you didn’t even realize. [NBC Sports Philly]

*Charlie points out the ways in which this weekend’s games weren’t just another couple of wins, they were wins that showed clear signs that the team is taking steps forward. The process is improving. [The Athletic]

*Speaking of improvement, James van Riemsdyk. Joel Farabee. Scott Laughton. [Inquirer]

*Anyhoo... prospect report! [BSH]

*Around the league, things are getting a little messy again Covid-wise as the New Jersey Devils are postponing all their games this week after having TEN PLAYERS enter Covid protocol. Oof. [All About The Jersey]
