The NHL rules require teams to open their locker room to the media five minutes after the last player leaves the ice at the conclusion of the game.
The Flyers are usually very good at this. Their media relations guru, Zack Hill, can often be found standing outside the locker room with the timer on his phone running so we all know when it’s going to open up.
So when Zack cracked open the locker room door and the media sauntered in last night, there wasn’t a player in the room.
Usually there are still some guys undressing.
