The Flyers face the Montreal Canadiens in the first round, and there’s certainly plenty of storylines to look at in this series. Here are five to watch for.
The 2018-19 season was another year in what has been a roller-coaster career for Shayne Gostisbehere, who followed up a career-high 65 points with a career-low 37 points. So the question arises again: which version of Gostisbehere will the Flyers get this season?
Defenseman David Schlemko was placed on waivers by the Flyers on Sunday for the purposes of terminating contract. The team will buy him out.
One day after they acquired defenseman Matt Niskanen from the Capitals for Radko Gudas, they officially placed defenseman Andrew MacDonald on waivers for purposes of a buyout. MacDonald is expected to clear waivers and have the contract bought out, making him a free agent.
There would be no magical comeback on this night. The Flyers were never able to solve the Canadiens at even strength and Montreal claimed a 3-1 win over the Flyers on Tuesday night at Wells Fargo Center.
With the NHL’s trade deadline hitting on Monday at 3 p.m., the time has come for Chuck Fletcher’s first chance to make his mark on the Flyers and their future.
The weekend provided fodder for many different topics as the trade deadline approaches, from the Flyers acquisition of Cam Talbot, to Wayne Simmonds’ deadline fate, to signs of a possible moving on from Shayne Gostisbehere.
GM Chuck Fletcher said that both Schlemko and Froese will report to the Lehigh Valley Phantoms and that left the Flyers with 12 forwards and six defensemen on the roster. To add to the roster, the Flyers called up defenseman Phil Myers from the Phantoms.

Goals by Travis Konecny and James van Riemsdyk and another solid game in goal from Carter Hart led the Flyers to a 3-1 win over the Winnipeg Jets for their fourth straight win.
While this was far from perfect for the Flyers and their play still showed some of the familiar flaws that had them on a lengthy losing streak to begin with, this was also a game where the Flyers got some bounces, played to their strengths in the game and got some help from the guy in goal.
The Flyers finally made a move on Monday after another slow start to the season and two embarrassing losses in the same week. It was certainly shocking when it was GM Ron Hextall on the way out. A move was necessary, but was this the right one for the Flyers?
The Maple Leafs scored four goals in the first 12:20 of the game, en route to a 6-0 rout over the Flyers on Saturday night.
Getting back on the right side of the win column won’t be easy against one of the NHL’s best and most dangerous lines. The Flyers face the Bruins in Boston at 7 p.m.

It was difficult to find many positives out of this game, a 3-0 loss for the Flyers to the Islanders, and an injury to Travis Sanheim only added to it.
