*Happy Monday, pals. It’s going to be a big one. Tonight and tomorrow, we’ve got the Bruins. The Flyers are four points back from the Bruins heading into these games for the fourth spot in the East. BIG GAMES! [Inquirer]

*This weekend we suffered through another loss, this time to the Islanders, but there was a tiny little glimmer of hope. Carter Hart looked good. Fingers crossed. Here’s what we learned. [BSH]

*That’s the big question. Is Carter Hart back? We’re going to find out. [Inquirer]

*So depending on how things go the rest of this season, we might see a little Cam York with the Flyers. They’re certainly not ruling it out. [NBC Sports Philly]

*Last week Scott Laughton appeared on Seravalli’s Trade Bait list, perhaps this was surprising, perhaps not. Players like him can be in high demand around deadline day, though. [NBC Sports Philly]

*Speaking of the deadline, there’s no doubt that Chuck is working the phones. Zero doubt at this point. But one thing we all need to accept is that this year is screwy in a million ways and as a result, the deals aren’t coming very easy. For anyone. [TSN]

*The Vancouver Canucks are having a serious Covid outbreak situation right now that is getting progressively more concerning as time goes on. [ProHockeyTalk]

*In that vein, the idea of doing another playoff bubble is being kicked around. [Sportsnet]

*And finally, there is no better way to start a new week than a Flyers quiz made by Charles O’Connor. He’s gonna stump you. [The Athletic]
