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

Flyers News

  • Saturday night’s Philadelphia Flyers game was yet another devastating loss at the hands of the Boston Bruins; if not for some late-game heroics, it would have been another blowout for the Orange and Black.
  • With the ongoing defensive carousel significantly affecting the team’s play on the ice, Flyers head coach John Tortorella went to bat for rookie goaltender Sam Ersson: “I don’t have any complaints about Sam.”
  • Speaking of the defense, there’s one guy people seem to have forgotten. Emil Andrae, playing with the Lehigh Valley Phantoms, could emerge as a viable option after starting the year with the big club.
  • Apparently, despite being placed on and clearing waivers, Ryan Johansen is on the Flyers’ roster. If he is injured as reports have indicated, that would be the reason.
  • ICYMI: Is Cam York the NHL’s most underrated defenseman? The Flyers’ young stud rearguard played over 27 minutes against Boston, collecting two assists in the defeat.

NHL News from National Hockey Now

  • The Montreal Canadiens announced Saturday that head coach Martin St. Louis had taken a personal leave and will be away from the team for an indeterminate period of time.
  • Despite other teams, like the Flyers, continuing to lose, the New Jersey Devils just don’t appear capable of making up ground. Why? Travis Green thinks, “A bit of it is immaturity.”
  • Like the Devils, the Pittsburgh Penguins aren’t making much progress either, but at least Valtteri Puustinen is making strides as an NHL regular.
  • With the Canadiens in town, the Calgary Flames turned to rookie goaltender Dustin Wolf, and boy did he deliver in a huge Flames victory.
  • They did it; the Detroit Red Wings snapped their seven-game losing streak, thanks in large part to an unlikely hero in James Reimer, the third goalie.
