Philadelphia Flyers Trade Value Rankings: Part 3 by Wes Herrmann
This week’s serving of Broad Street Buzz content you might have missed.
The Philadelphia Flyers kicked off the week looking to stay white-hot and extend their winning streak to eight games against the Vancouver Canucks.
Carter Hart did more Carter Hart things and helped lead the Flyers to a 2-1 victory over the Canucks at home.
