In Sunday’s edition of Bailey’s Daily, we’ll be talking the latest Philadelphia Flyers news, stories, highlights, and more from the last day.

Flyers News

  • The Philadelphia Flyers, Anaheim Ducks, and the rest of the hockey world mourn the loss of former defenseman and scout Glen Cochrane. Cochrane, aged 65, tragically lost his battle with cancer on Saturday.
  • The Flyers, led by Cam Atkinson and Sam Ersson, honored Cochrane during the Flyers game on Saturday night with a fierce 2-0 shutout effort against the Winnipeg Jets.
  • For PhHN+ subscribers: Although he didn’t play on Saturday night due to illness, Jamie Drysdale has revolutionized the look of the Flyers’ defense. We took a look at the history of the rover, how John Tortorella has used it, and how Drysdale has affected the rest of the blueline.
    • PhHN+ subscribers also get access to this story about Ryan Poehling, as well as other stories from the rest of the National Hockey Now network. You can use code “Jon10” to save $10 on an annual subscription here.
  • GM Danny Briere and the Flyers might have been after Colorado Avalanche defensemen Bowen Byram, but I think most Flyers fans are happy with Drysdale.

NHL News from National Hockey Now

  • In the midst of a hotly-contested playoff race, the Pittsburgh Penguins came out flat and sloppy in their overtime loss to the Carolina Hurricanes, much to the dismay of a dejected Mike Sullivan.
  • Farther east, the New York Islanders are just barely holding onto their wild card spot. But, how good are they really? These Islanders grades tell the more complete picture.
  • Chicago Blackhawks forward Nick Foligno had some choice words for New Jersey Devils defenseman Brendan Smith’s decision to hit Connor Bedard on the play that broke the rookie sensation’s jaw.
  • Two more Colorado Avalanche players got voted into the NHL All-Star game, but one will come as a surprise.
  • What did Barry Trotz and the Islanders learn from each other during their time together? Quite a lot, and it’s left a residual effect on the organization in a positive way.
