COVID update Friday afternoon from Flyers head coach Alain Vigneault:

The Flyers played with a depleted squad last night and they’ve got the Lake Tahoe game coming up on Sunday. Justin Braun, Claude Giroux, Travis Konecny, Scott Laughton, Oskar Lindblom, and Jake Voracek won’t be playing, which is a bummer.

From that point on, they’d start coming off the list based on when they first went on it. That would mean Giroux and Braun come off first, then Voracek, then Laughton and Lindblom, and then Travis Konecny. The soonest they would get anybody off the list and onto the ice would be for the Rangers game next Wednesday, and then they follow it up with the Buffalo trip a few days later.

Not an ideal situation, and it’s going to tarnish the Tahoe game, but it is what it is. It’s a COVID world and we’re living in it.
