In this Saturday’s edition of Bailey’s Daily, we’ll be talking Philadelphia Flyers news, stories, highlights, and more from Friday.

Flyers News

  • The Philadelphia Flyers lost to the Nashville Predators, 4-2 on Thursday night after squandering a 2-1 lead early in the second period. Friday’s Flyers game wasn’t much better, at least to start. They clawed back from 5-1 down to earn a point against a desperate Detroit Red Wings team at Little Caesars Arena on Friday night, despite losing in the shootout, 7-6. [Flyers recap]
    • Carter Hart returned to Philadelphia’s lineup for the first time in 13 days, and played pretty well, all things considered. Though Moneypuck has him at -1.26 goals saved above expected, the truth is that defensively, the Flyers left Hart stranded almost all night. He’s played better games, and he’s played worse games.
  • Flyers fans will be excited to hear that Matvei Michkov is on the mend after a bout with pneumonia, and looks set to return to game action within the week. He left a two-word message on Instagram for his supporters. [Matvei Michkov]
  • The Flyers wouldn’t be where they are without the contributions of veterans like Nick Seeler and Sean Walker, who have everything to play for in their contract seasons. [Carchidi Column]

  • Jack Eichel revealed on the Empty Netters podcast that he wasn’t always headed to Vegas in his trade from Buffalo. According to Eichel, the Colorado Avalanche were frontrunners for him for quite a while. [Colorado Avalanche]
  • Diamond Sports Group LLC, owner of the Nashville Predators’ broadcasting rights by extension of Bally Sports, had filed for bankruptcy. Apparently, there is now a plan in place for the Predators and their fans beyond this season. [Nashville Predators]
