The Philadelphia Flyers had a NHL-mandated day off on Monday, but that couldn't stop the Flyers from coming together.
On Tuesday, head coach Alain Vigneault revealed to the media that the team still showed up to practice.
Only two players were absent because both Scott Laughton and Matt Niskanen had scheduled doctor visits.
The team wanted to prove their dedication and determination to put on a show for the Flyers' home opener on Thursday.
This was an interesting revelation. Only Scott Laughton and Matt Niskanen didn’t skate and they were both at the doctor. Good attendance for an NHLPA day off. https://t.co/FF11vcQFmX
