*About an hour before the game last night we learned that not only was Sidney Crosby off the Covid protocol, but Joel Farabee was placed ON. Because we cannot enjoy nice things. Ever. [Inquirer]

*But the Flyers won! Mostly because Claude Giroux carried them there! RECAP!

*It would seem that the Flyers players that were unfortunate enough to contract Covid-19 did all get out of it unscathed. Travis Konecny hasn’t felt great since coming back to the team, which is a real bummer. [Inquirer]

*Despite not feeling 100, Konecny has developed some theories about why Joel Farabee is so dang good right now. [Inquirer]

*So let’s talk about Carter Hart. Charlie did the legwork here and looked at every single goal he’s allowed this year to see just how “bad” he’s been. [The Athletic]

*Tuesday’s game marked the first time the Flyers have played in front of real life hockey fans in what seems like... 100 years? And although they were in Pittsburgh, and only a small number of fans were allowed in, one Flyers fan got to be in the building to cheer on his boys. [NBC Sports Philly]

*It’s not just the Phantoms; the whole dang AHL is a lot of fun to watch right now. [The Hockey News]

*The league will be getting a new TV deal in the rapidly approaching future, and some speculation is starting to happen. Rumors! [The Athletic]

*And finally, a new Flyperbole for your Friday morning! [BSH]
