NHL Daily: Flyers slip, McDavid ‘Traded’ to Isles, Eichel Sticks it to Sabres



Carter Hart, Philadelphia Flyers
Carter Hart didn't receive much help as the Flyers fell to Columbus, giving the goalie his first regulation loss this year.

The turnover-plagued Philadelphia Flyers slipped against the woeful Columbus Blue Jackets, and head coach John Tortorella slipped out of Nationwide Arena without talking to the media.

The New York Islanders acquired Edmonton superstar Connor McDavid — ah, if only you could trust those verified Twitter accounts — and Vegas’ Jack Eichel stuck it to his former team, Buffalo, and their boo-happy fans.
