Tonight I am watching one of the last few Flyers ‘rewinds’, the game in Montreal played on November 30th. While I didn’t watch this game live since … Continue reading The Flyers are Back!

In what can only be described as the best news of 2020, the Philadelphia Flyers announced today that Oscar Lindblom is cancer free. They posted the following video of Oskar ringing the bell on the teams official Twitter. https://twitter.com/nhlflyers/status/1278742954736320512?s=21 When the Flyers win the Cup and dedicate it to Oskar, there will be a cheesey … Continue reading Oskar Lindblom is Cancer Free!
