The Philadelphia Flyers defeated the Montreal Canadiens 2-1, in Game One of their Eastern Conference Quarterfinal Series. Here are some observations.
The goalie match-up is as advertised. Not often you watch two goaltenders but on a technical display as proficient as what Carter Hart and Carey Price displayed. If there
The Flyers drafted Mason Millman 103rd overall in the 2019 NHL Draft and he could end up being a steal. I wrote this about him during last year’s rookie camp:
I had a chance to see him this year while playing for the Saginaw Spirit. They’re a good team and he’s
Voorhees - - As Flyers rookie camp is getting ready to wind down. I thought with all the press the offense was getting that I’d highlight a few lesser-known defensemen.
I profiled Wyatte Wylie here:

Wyatte Wylie is a 6-0, 188-pound defenseman who the Flyers took in the fifth round of the 2018 NHL Draft. The Everett, Washington native has made a big jump this past year and as a result, should be rewarded with an entry-level contract. So far that hasn’t happened.

Last winter the 6-0, 179-pound right winger
Today the prospects played a 3-on-3 tournament. If the score or who scored matters to you. Click off this post.
Gavin Hain – 5-11 – 194 – C – His defensive prowess showed. You don’t get to play for the NTDP without learning how to play a 200-foot game. His puck
In my estimation Phil Myers and Morgan Frost are the two best performers in camp so far. Not a big surprise there.
Sam Ersson – 6-2, 180 – He has good, smooth movements. He was battling the two shooters in drills. He covers the puck up quickly and his glove hand
As always, I will point out some things about the players. Many are shaking off the rust on the first day and I will report on these players again to mark their improvement.
Kirill Ustimenko – 6-3, 179 – G – crouches quite a bit. He’s 6-3 so there’s still
It’s hard to be an expert on this player. Nobody has really seen enough of him this season to proclaim that. He wasn’t that popular at the combine as far as the media was concerned, but teams certainly know about him. To me, I will dub him “the most interesting
