Damn COVID-19!

The Flyers, like the rest of the world, are dealing with issues related to COVID-19 and it just cost defenseman Ivan Provorov his perfect attendance. Provorov, along with captain Claude Giroux, was placed on the Flyers/NHL COVID-19 protocol list.

Both will miss tonight’s game against Anaheim. For Provorov, this marks the first time in his six year career that he has missed a game.

The seventh overall pick in 2015 NHL Draft, Provorov had played in 425-consecutive games, including playoffs. That’s remarkable in hockey, especially from a defenseman, considering the physicality of the sport.

The puck drops at 10:00 PM/Eastern. The Ducks are a -160 favorite. A game preview can be found HERE.
