In Friday’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

  • Another day, another crucial Philadelphia Flyers game; this time, the Orange and Black had to settle for the loser point after traveling to Carolina and losing 3-2 in overtime.
  • Flyers center Morgan Frost matched his career-high point streak of five games against Carolina, continuing to prove his worth and long-term value to Philadelphia over time.
  • Out of left field, Flyers head coach John Tortorella was called out by one of his former players, Brandon Dubinsky, for his treatment of captain Sean Couturier.
  • And, without Sean Couturier, the Flyers have accrued three of a possible four points in two captain-less games. Their playoff hopes are growing, but for how long?
  • In case you missed it, Flyers tough guy Nick Deslauriers dropped the gloves with Ryan Reaves on Tuesday night, stunning Toronto’s enforcer with a straight left before scoring the takedown.
