The Philadelphia Flyers entered the back of the 2019-2020 season riding one of the best hot streaks the team has seen in years. The offense clicked, the defense stepped up, but most importantly, it looked like they found their long term answer in net with the young goalie and impenetrable brick wall Carter Hart. Then the shutdown happened, and we weren’t sure if we were going to see what this team could do in the playoffs.
