The Philadelphia Flyers were just heating up when the NHL suspended the season on March 12 as a result of the pandemic.

After coming off a lackluster season, the Flyers brought in head coach Alain Vigneault in April 2019. It wasn’t until January when they were able to turn things around, going 19-6-1 from Jan. 8 on and losing only one of their last 10 regular season games.

Goaltender Carey Hart will be the make-it-or-break-it factor going into what will be his first Stanley Cup run. At just 21-years-old and coming off a recent injury, Hart will rely on veterans like Matt Niskanen and Justin Braun in a big way.
