Alex Lyon’s Bubble Blog – Episode 3

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. 

I’ve decided to dub this episode ‘Thunderdome’.

That’s right, two men enter, one man leaves.

Is it a play on words in regards to the bubble?  Possibly.

I challenged fellow netminder Kirill Ustimenko to a ping pong duel inside the HotelX squash court.  If you ask Kirill, he may say he won.  If you ask me, I would say that some environmental factors skewed the results, therefore no winner could be crowned, you decide for yourself.

Thank you for watching another episode and have a good day.
