It was a beautiful day at Flyers' practice today. 

Both Nolan Patrick and Carter Hart took the ice and skated with their teammates at practice. 

It's gotten everybody excited as the Flyers continue to fight for a playoff spot. 

After practice, head coach Alain Vigneault spoke to the media and gave some updates on Patrick and Hart. 

When it comes to Patrick, while he was skating as a regular, he still hasn't been cleared for contact. Vigneault added that today was strictly a "skill day" so there would have been no contact involved anyway.

As for Hart, he's not ready to return yet either. The Flyers head coach revealed that Brian Elliott would face the New Jersey Devils tomorrow. 

Either way having both around at practice definitely means they're trending up.
