NHL Hockey is just around the corner! In just over two weeks, the Flyers will host their Regular Season opener against the Western Conference Champion Vegas Golden Knights, a game which is sure to sell out. Right now, however, preseason continues to roll on, and the Flyers have gotten through 3 of their 8 scheduled exhibition contests. All three of these games were against the Islanders, whom the Flyers’ Dev Camp squad beat last week.
It’s been two weeks since Lou Lamoriello was appointed as the Islanders’ president of hockey operations and he’s wasted little time in making sweeping changes as key personnel pay the price for the teams underperforming season.
