The Flyers season is over, and it sets up for an interesting offseason for GM Chuck Fletcher, one that begins now that the season is over and will carry over throughout the summer and as the 2019-20 season approaches.
The Capitals didn't win Thursday's game with their stars, but their depth, getting good goaltending when they needed it and players to step up. For the Flyers, it was a reminder that a young defense can still pay the price for costly mistakes and that the depth needs to improve.
The 20-year-old rookie sensation did it again. Carter Hart is becoming a regular rock star in South Philadelphia.Hart was the center of attention again, making 41 saves in the Flyers eighth straight win, 2-1, over the Vancouver Canucks.
Saturday's game was certainly not be design, but the Flyers stayed with the game and found a way to rally back and win in overtime, defeating the Oilers, 5-4, in overtime. It has them up to seven straight wins and surging.
