The Flyers will be shorthanded for Thursday night’s game against the Rangers.
It is what it is. They have a number of guys on the COVID list, and as such, the lines looked like this at Wednesday’s practice:

Maksim Sushko and David Kase are Phantoms call ups, while Sam Morin is playing as a converted defenseman. Andy Andreoff hasn’t played a game for the Flyers this year and Connor Bunnaman has five appearances. Because the Flyers had to recall so many players, or put them on the taxi squad, the Phantoms have had Friday’s game postponed until next week.
It’ll be interesting to see what the books do with this game. Playing at home, right now the Flyers are a -159 favorite against the Rangers, who have lost four-straight games. They are 4-7-3 and truly stink. Good value out there for both teams if you wanna jump on one of them.
