Let’s be honest, going this long without hockey and it not being the offseason has been … difficult. The season was winding down, the playoff seeding would’ve begun to officially take shape and now that is at a halt.
Luckily, the NHL realized just how frustrating this has been for fans and has decided to make NHL.tv free for the time being. So this way, you can at least go back and stream every game from the season.
While there are, of course, a ton of games to view across the whole league — here are the top Flyers games of the season with which you might want to kick off your binge-watch.
Oct. 9, 2019 — Flyers home opener against the Devils
There was a lot of talk by the end of the offseason saying the Devils won the offseason from drafting to free agency signings and, well, that turned out to be false.
Carter Hart kicked off his 2019-20 Wells Fargo Center dominance with his first career NHL shutout.
Nov. 2, 2019 — Flyers vs. Maple Leafs
After 65 minutes of hockey, we were able to witness a battle of the goaltenders that should probably go down as a top-five goalie moment of the season throughout the league.
Flyers fans were able to witness 11 rounds of a shootout and while this game resulted in a loss, boy was it a fun and thrilling game to watch. All with Brian Elliott in net for Philadelphia. It was an exciting game to root for Elliott, showcasing he still has it.
Nov. 29, 2019 — Flyers vs. Red Wings
This was one of those games in which the Flyers needed to show off their talent against a poor club. The Red Wings were in a rut, the Flyers were on the verge of a three-game win streak — on paper, this is a game you want to see a blowout. Luckily, that’s just what the Flyers did.
Six different Flyers made their way on the scoreboard, with 12 different players registering at least one point. What’s difficult is trying to decide which is crazier — the fact six different players scored a goal and 12 registered at least a point … or the fact Claude Giroux didn’t have any of them.
Jan. 21, 2020 — Flyers vs. Penguins
Who doesn’t love a quality win over a division rival? And what’s better than shutting out the Penguins? Not only did Elliott stop all 19 shots he faced, this was one of the better defensive performances from the blue line all season.
This was first time the Flyers shut out the Penguins since March 15, 2017, and this win added a ton of momentum heading into the All-Star break.
Feb. 8, 2020 — Flyers at Capitals
This had "redemption game" written all over it. The Flyers just took a beating from the Devils in their previous game, losing, 5-0, and were now headed to the barn of the best team in the Metro. Not only that, but Washington captain Alex Ovechkin was on fire and inching closer to that 700-goal mark.
Not only did Ovechkin go scoreless, but Giroux picked up his 800th NHL point and the Flyers continued to put their name on the radar for the season.
Feb. 18, 2020 — Flyers vs. Blue Jackets
The game that started their season-best nine-game winning streak. This win put the Flyers in third place in the division and they haven’t looked back since.
Outside of their last win during this streak against the Sabres, this was probably their worst game of the stretch. That being said, they still found a way to win — and knowing eight more wins are to follow after this one definitely makes for this to be a great starting point in a binge-watch.
Let’s do that hockey … kind of.
