The NHL plans for the Flyers to return to action against the visiting Rangers on Thursday — 11 days after their last game — and to meet Boston in an outdoor game Sunday in Lake Tahoe.
The Flyers had seven players on the COVID-19 protocol list yesterday, and they have had four straight games postponed since a 7-4 win in Washington on Feb. 7.
“We have stayed in close communication with the Flyers during the last 7 to 10 days regarding the status of testing and player availability issues,” Bill Daly, the NHL’s deputy commissioner, told the Inky yesterday.
“It continues to be our intention that the Flyers will resume the regular-season schedule on Thursday and will participate in Sunday’s game in Lake Tahoe. We will, of course, continue to actively monitor the situation.”
About an hour later, the Flyers’ scheduled yesterday was postponed.
