Exhausted from the recent workload and an embarrassing four-game losing streak, the Flyers decided to put in for some vacation time on Tuesday and will reschedule all of their upcoming games for whenever they get back.

“Sometimes the best thing thing to do in the middle of a tight playoff race is to just get away and not think about hockey for a while,” said head coach Peter Laviolette. “Plus, those 96.2 hours of accrued vacation time aren’t going to use themselves.”

NHL commissioner Gary Bettman said he would approve the Flyers vacation request as soon as the team finds someone to cover their shift.
