The Philadelphia Flyers lost to the Minnesota Wild, 4-1, at Xcel Energy Center on Tuesday night. The regulation loss officially ended Philly’s playoff hopes, although those dreams were dead back around Christmas.
But now, having wrapped up the March portion of the schedule, all that stands between the Orange and Black and one of the most important off-seasons in franchise history are 15 April games.

That’s it. We’re so close, fam. So close.
Oh, and Morgan Frost scored the Flyers’ lone goal tonight, giving him three for the season. He now has more goals than Zack MacEwen.
And big props to Nick Seeler for his scrap on Tuesday with Nicolas Deslauriers. Kid can throw and definitely isn’t intimidated out there. Philadelphia needs A TON of talent, but they could use some players with Seeler’s edge. But also, way more skill.
That’s it. Listen to the Postgame.
