Fun fact: in the NHL, two points are awarded for a win, one
point is awarded for a tie at the end of regulation, and the teams with the highest
number of points at the end of the regular season are entered into a tournament.
Philadelphia doesn’t have an automatic berth in the playoffs or anything like
that.

The Flyers seem to be aware of this, at least they’ve talked
about it a lot on a number of occasions. Unfortunately the NHL does not award
two points based on having the locker room that talked the most about winning that
night, or else the Flyers might be in first place in the Atlantic Division
right now.

Instead they are in last place, and the most positive storyline
you could find about the team on Friday was, “Well, they’re kind of sort of not
quite out of it yet technically,” which really is all anyone can say. Philly is
only five points out of the eight seed with 20 games left to play, so postseason
hockey is still very much a reality at this point – you know, if things ever
turn around.

What expectations would be like in May, that’s something
else entirely. To even get that far, the Flyers are going to have to tune out
all the trade rumors and calls to fire the head coach over the next month. Winning
sometimes would help, too. Ending a seven-game losing streak against the Devils
that dates back to last year’s playoffs would even be a nice start.

It would’ve been a nice start back on Wednesday as well.

So here we go, Flyers. That’s about the extent of the
enthusiasm we can muster right this moment, because while you’re not finished
just yet, you certainly look and sound like a team that is headed for an early
tee time.

Eagles Injury Update: Rodney McLeod questionable; others ruled out

Eagles Injury Update: Rodney McLeod questionable; others ruled out

Rodney McLeod will be a game-time decision on Sunday against the Giants. 

And the Eagles are really hoping he's able to play. 

McLeod is questionable with a hamstring injury he suffered against the Chiefs, while his backups, Corey Graham and Jaylen Watkins, have been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Giants with hamstring injuries of their own. Earlier in the day, head coach Doug Pederson said Graham and Watkins would be game-time decisions too; turns out that isn't the case. 

McLeod said he has been healing throughout the week but truly won't know if he'll be able to play or not until Sunday before the game. He was a limited participant in Friday's practice after missing Wednesday and Thursday. The other two members of the Hamstrung Trio missed all three days. 

In addition to Graham and Watkins, Destiny Vaeao (wrist) and Ronald Darby (ankle) have also been ruled out for Sunday. Torrey Smith (illness) is questionable. 

After injuring his hamstring early during last Sunday's game, McLeod was visibly hurting and upset about the injury. He said he's been focusing on treatment all week and is starting to feel better. 

Missing Sunday's game will be tough for Graham because it will snap his 159-game consecutive streak. It was the second-longest among defensive backs in the league. It hurts the Eagles even more. 

With two safeties already ruled out and one questionable, the Eagles are in a tough spot at safety. Their only truly healthy players at the position are Malcolm Jenkins, Chris Maragos and newcomer Trae Elston. 

What are the options if McLeod can't play? 

"Just look at the roster, see who we got," Pederson said. "There's Maragos, we signed Trae. If those two guys, who else you going to ... I'll go back there and play if I have to."
