There’s not much to say about this, we actually don’t have a team at the moment. Our protocol list is now extremely lengthy and features almost every important player in the organization.

Carter Hart made some comments following the loss last night that made it clear where the team stands with the current testing process.
“Guys are testing positive with no symptoms or mild symptoms. I mean, the league’s got to find a way to change that. We’re either going to keep playing shorthanded all season long or games are going to keep getting postponed. I think’s a joke. It’s got to change.”— Jordan Hall (@JHallNBCS) January 5, 2022

The Flyers are supposed to be taking on the Pittsburgh Penguins at home tomorrow but I hope that this one gets delayed. I’ve seen the NHL postpone a game for less serious outbreaks and our team is completely decimated.
Honestly, what a dark year. I wasn’t expecting a cup run or anything, but my god can one thing go right for this team? The captain of the team couldn’t even find a way to watch the game last night and I’m glad. Giroux would’ve been destroying his hotel room enduring that performance.
Claude Giroux was unable to watch the #BringItToBroad vs #FlyTogether game last night while quarantining in his hotel room due to regional blackouts. Does any other sport have this issue? pic.twitter.com/8CrNsDmlvA— NHL Chirps (@nhlchirpz) January 5, 2022
