Morning Skate: More COVID cancellations
It’s our second day here at Philly Hockey Now, and it looks like we had great timing with our launch as the Philadelphia Flyers are now on pause due to COVID protocol. Tuesday night’s game was postponed the day of, just a day after the Flyers’ contests against the New Jersey Devils later this week had the same fate.
The Flyers are now off until at least Sunday when they are scheduled to visit the New York Rangers at Madison Square Garden. However, with three players now on the COVID list, who knows how that may end up.
Welcome to the Morning Skate, Philly Hockey Now’s roundup of links from yesterday on this site as well other sites around the National Hockey Now network and hockey world!
In case you missed our launch content yesterday, there is plenty of relevant content to get caught up on during the Flyers’ mini break.
