I finally broke down and got Youtube TV for this, so they better play well. Most importantly is stay healthy, but only slightly less important is making the Flyers realize that they actually suck.

Bradley Marchand is in mid-season stick-handling form. He just had 3 flyers ride him to the goalie and forced the rushed clear that resulted in an ice. The little things like that lead to opportunities.

The absence of fans affords some novel camera angles that I’ve appreciated. There was a shot of the puck at the players feet a while back I’ve never seen before, and got a better sense of what they’re doing

From a production standpoint these games look much better than NBA, IMO

Refs in midseason form
Ha! That's what I said to my wife.

One of the things I don't think we talk about much with this team, and the changes that Cassidy has made, is how much fun it is to watch the defense push the play, in every zone. Claude's defensemen were so good at being responsible, but man it was always tough when they would get stuck in the back end of the defensive zone passing the puck back and forth behind the net. You almost never see that with this club anymore, and watching a guy like Lauzon activate in the offensive zone is awesome. Cassidy has been a revelation for my viewing entertainment.

So why would the refs create a situation that automatically gives Philly an advantage by not blowing it dead when the net came off its pegs when it happened?

There was no advantage for Philly by not blowing it dead, but it did ensure that when they lost the puck they would get most likely an offensive zone faceoff?
