The Philadelphia Flyers continue to stay hot since the All-Star break, winning their fourth straight game on Monday night against the Arizona Coyotes that saw the Flyers offense come to life. From the performances of Samuel Ersson to Scott Laughton, the Flyers continue to remain undefeated since the break. After last night's win, the Flyers head coach had some high praises for one of his young players.

On Saturday night, 24-year-old center Morgan Frost recorded his 200th game of his career. On Monday night, Frost turned in arguably the best performance of his career and showed off why the Flyers drafted him in the first round back in 2017.

In the second period, Frost delivered an incredible penalty shot goal in the second period, to tie the game and get the Flyers on the board. Although it only tied the game, Frost's goal helped refocus the Flyers and seemed to be a spark to get the offense rolling.

After the game, head coach John Tortorella spoke to how impressed he was with Frost's performance on Monday night. This is a resounding sight considering back in January, Frost was benched for a game and had a passionate meeting with Tortorella.

"One of the best games I've seen him play in a while, I thought he tried to put the team on his back."

Frost himself also spoke to how much he loves playing for Philadelphia and how this group of teammates is creating something special.

"I feel pretty good. Been preparing well for the games. My teammates have a lot of confidence in me. They are pumping me up out there. I love everyone on this team."
