As the National Hockey League returns to play and heads towards the Stanley Cup Playoffs, the Philadelphia Flyers have finished their Phase 3 Training Camp and set off for Toronto, the Flyers assigned “Bubble City”. The players — 31 in total — will only have each other and select staff members to interact with inside the bubble as they shelter themselves from the COVID-19 Pandemic. During this time, Lehigh Valley Phantoms and Flyers goaltender Alex Lyon will bring you an inside look at what goes on inside that bubble. Over the next few weeks, his thoughts, sarcasm, antics and activities will be documented in Alex Lyon’s Bubble Blog.
Today, I thought it might be interesting to share a little about what the players and staff inside the bubble are talking about, or rather, NOT talking about. This episode is titled, “10 Things You Won’t Hear Inside the NHL Bubble”.
NHL players, and hockey players in general, are not complainers. In fact, we typically try to keep things as close to the cuff as possible. I hope this can be some insight into our lives as well as some of the emotions we experience that fans may not be able to see.
As always, I appreciate you watching and have a great day.
