It seems the Philadelphia Flyers are headed for a more extreme lockdown after two more players were added to the covid list. Something that may effect their participation in the Lake Tahoe game vs the Bruins next Sunday.
After Travis Sanheim was placed on the list Sunday, six more Flyers have now been placed on the covid list.
Claude Giroux & Justin Braun were placed on the list first. Then, Jake Voracek & Morgan Frost. Now, Oskar Lindblom & Scott Laughton have been added to the list.
With now seven players on the list, it seems the NHL is putting into motion removing the Flyers from the Lake Tahoe game next week.
According to Crossing Broad’s Russ Joy, the Flyers are expected to be removed for the New York Rangers.
With 7 Flyers now on the NHL's Protocol list, expect formal announcement of the New York Rangers as the Flyers' replacement for the Feb. 21st game in Lake Tahoe. #Flyers

While it’s still not official just yet, it is the right decision. With the Flyers rise in cases & for the safety of everyone, this is & should be the decision.
