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

  • It doesn’t get much more embarrassing than that, does it? Columbus emerged with a blowout 6-2 win in Saturday night’s Philadelphia Flyers game, which could prove to be the fatal blow to the Orange and Black’s playoff hopes.
  • Defense has been a central theme in the Flyers’ late winter collapse, and the numbers don’t lie: the team misses Rasmus Ristolainen way more than you might want to give credit for.
  • After successfully recovering from two back surgeries and making his return to the ice this season, Flyers captain Sean Couturier was dubbed as the team’s 2024 Bill Masterton Trophy nominee.
  • Carchidi: Flyers head coach John Tortorella took two gambles this week, each in a different way. Based on this weekend’s results, neither gamble paid off the way the veteran coach would have hoped.
  • In case you missed it, the Flyers and newcomer goalie Ivan Fedotov are reportedly working on a contract extension that would keep the Russian around for several years.

NHL News from National Hockey Now

  • The Pittsburgh Penguins, led by Sidney Crosby, suddenly own sole possession of a playoff spot after defeating Tampa Bay on Saturday afternoon, and now “We’ve just gotta keep going.”
  • Boston Bruins winger Pat Maroon, who once defeated the Bs as a St. Louis player in 2019, never viewed the team as “soft”, even though he’s challenged them a few times in his career.
  • If you can really believe it, the Chicago Blackhawks stunned the Stanley Cup-favorite Dallas Stars with a 3-2 upset win on Saturday evening.
  • In what will surely be of interest to the Flyers, the Carolina Hurricanes signed Russian prospect Gleb Trikozov to an entry-level contract on Saturday.
