Morning Skate

Sunday Morning Skate: One Mattias Ekholm, please




The Philadelphia Flyers need something. They dropped their third game of the week to the Capitals on Saturday night. Once again, they dug themselves into an early hole and could not climb out of it. They climbed back into it with the goalie pulled, but couldn’t find the equalizer.

The Flyers will now embark on a four-game road trip up north to take on the Rangers and Islanders.

Welcome to the Morning Skate, our roundup of links on Philly Hockey Now as well as other sites around the National Hockey Now network and hockey world!
