Saturday Morning Skate: Let NHL trade deadline weekend commence




The Philadelphia Flyers have a season-changing back-to-back this weekend ahead of the NHL trade deadline on Monday. If they beat Boston in regulation and win against Buffalo, they’re back in it. If they split or lose both, it could be a fire sale on Monday.

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!
