The Flyers’ Thursday and Saturday games against the New Jersey Devils have been postponed. That’s due to 16 Devils players being in the COVID protocol.

Goalie Brian Elliott says everyone is just trying to do the right thing.
“It was an early game and a lot of us were getting up at a similar hour so I don’t think it was that crazy of a wake-up for most guys and it’s just unique. You gotta roll with the punches a little bit and if you get hung up on those little things and let those things bother you, I think that’s the wrong path to go down so let’s roll with the punches, laugh it off a little bit and try your best to stay healthy and keep your teammates safe,” Elliott said.MORE NEWS: 'You're Not Welcome Here' Flyers Posted On Northeast Philadelphia Kids Dance Studio
