Philadelphia Flyers coach John Tortorella has once again stirred controversy with his decision to healthy scratch Bobby Brink, the NHL's third-leading rookie scorer, for tomorrow's game. Instead, Morgan Frost will retain his spot in the lineup.

Brink, who took to extra skating after practice today alongside rehabbing players Rasmus Ristolainen and Felix Sandström, finds himself sidelined once more. Tortorella acknowledged a recent dip in Brink's play but expressed a desire to see him back in action soon. The decision to keep Brink out for tomorrow's game is attributed to the team's impressive three-game winning streak.
Tortorella emphasized that when Brink returns to the lineup, he wants to see the rookie forward making plays and taking calculated risks on the ice. This strategic move aims to maximize Brink's potential impact when he is back in action.
