9 Game Review #6: Steamrolling into the Second Half

After what was by far their worst stretch of hockey during the 2019-20 season, the Philadelphia Flyers knew that they were at rock bottom. Things could only get better, and they would have to if they wanted to be playing for the Stanley Cup come April. They faced a daunting road with matches against some … Continue reading 9 Game Review #6: Steamrolling into the Second Half
