COVID is still running wild in the NHL and the rest of the world, but the Flyers make their return with five new additions to the COVID protocol list over the last several days, but also three players back from protocols. They will face the Seattle Kraken in their return, opening up a four-game road trip on Wednesday night.
The Flyers 6-1 win over the Seattle Kraken on Monday night was more than just the contributions from new faces and plenty of familiar ones on the scoresheet. It was another early indication that this team is already tight with each other and willing to go to battle and defend each other.
The Flyers faced both the Capitals and Bruins on home ice, and at the time, each was at least in a tie for the most points in the NHL. Their only remaining road game before the All-Star break and bye week is also against a team tied for the most points in the standings. The defending Stanley Cup champion St. Louis Blues await in a Wednesday night matchup.
Here is a preview of the Stanley Cup Final between the Boston Bruins and St. Louis Blues, including each team’s candidates for Conn Smythe, how they got to the Final and what they need to do to win the Cup.

In a battle between two of the NHL’s bottom five, the Flyers were the inferior team, making things rather easy for Jordan Binnington, the 25-year-old rookie making his first NHL start. The 3-0 loss to the St. Louis Blues was the team’s seventh straight, and just another step to a forgettable season.
