The Philadelphia Flyers are set to take on the New York Islanders on Saturday and it turns out their lineup will look a little bit different. It appears via the morning skate that forward Travis Konecny will be a healthy scratch.
Travis Konecny will be a healthy scratch today for the Flyers. Had just 1 shot on goal in the last 3 games, is a 5G+3A=8P, +5 in 8GP this season. Samuel Morin comes into the lineup as a forward #AnytimeAnywhere https://t.co/92XbQQaV0U

Konecny has disappeared of late and several of the team’s core players were recently called out by the coaching staff. Looks like the punishment is not playing on Saturday for Konecny who has eight points in eight games.
The Flyers are 5-2-1 on the season and it’s early but the team is holding players accountable for their efforts. You have to applaud the move, unless you have Konecny in the pool of course.
