*The Flyers lost another game and everyone else in the division won theirs, so things are going well. Recap.

*You may have noticed that Phil Myers was scratched last night. Again. [NBC Sports Philly]

*A couple of days ago, a Phantoms game was stopped during the first intermission because of Covid protocol. But then... nothing else? That’s weird. [BSH]

*Carter Hart is really going through it right now, mentally, as he struggles to get his game back. Kid’s working really hard, though. [Inquirer]

*So one could say that Erik Gustafsson is the Flyers worst defenseman. It’s debatable, but you could say it. Naturally, that prompts comparisons for the Flyers worst defenseman of the last decade, Andrew MacDonald. Here’s why that doesn’t work. [BSH]

*It’s been a very difficult year for NHL and AHL players that have gone nearly that entire stretch without playing a single game of hockey. Carsen Twarynski is one of those players. [The Athletic]

*And finally, it’s Flyperbole Friday! And listening to this week’s episode will surely be the highlight of your day. So enjoy! [BSH]
