Flyers defenseman Ivan Provorov is coming off his best season since debuting in the NHL in 2016-17, and it was noticeable in how the Flyers played too.
He scored 36 points (13 goals, 26 assists) in 69 games and was on pace for an NHL career-high 42 points before the pause.
Provorov was plus-11 after being minus-16 with 26 points in 82 games in 2018-19.
The Flyers finished tied for seventh in goals-against per game (2.77) last season. They were 29th (3.41 per game) in 2018-19, when Provorov struggled.
