    After digging themselves into a significant hole early on this season, the Philadelphia Flyers found a way to get themselves back in the playoff conversation thanks to an outstanding last few weeks. Thanks to some steady goaltending from Carter Hart and a more aggressive approach overall, the Flyers were able to rattle off 12 victories in 14 games between Jan. 14 – Feb. 17. If general manager Chuck Fletcher was using this final week before the trade deadline to decide whether or not he'd hold on to Wayne Simmonds, he got his answer.

The 18-year-old Williamson, who has been averaging 22.4 points per game, was dribbling near the free throw line on his team's first possession when he planted his left foot and his sneaker blew apart.

Here's the full deal: Capitals receive: Carl Hagelin Kings receive: 2019 third-round pick, conditional sixth-round pick in 2020. The Athletic's Pierre LeBrun reports that the Kings will retain 50 percent of Hagelin's salary/cap hit, which would be the second time a team retained a portion of the winger's salary, as the Penguins retained a small chunk of his cap hit earlier this season in the Tanner Pearson trade.

    Dustin Pedroia's goal isn't merely to come back from his knee injury. The challenge for the Boston second baseman this time is to return at the right time, to stick around longer than three games, and to help the Red Sox get back to the World Series with his play, instead of by cheering them on from the dugout. ''The human body is on its own program, man,'' Pedroia said after working out with the other infielders on Thursday, a day before the defending champions open their exhibition schedule against Northeastern University.

The trade was completed Wednesday, and later that night after the B's beat the Vegas Golden Knights 3-2 in a shootout, Boston head coach Bruce Cassidy met with reporters and explained why he believes the Coyle addition will improve the team.

    Well, turns out that there was a catch: a full one-third of that was deferred money, reducing the deal considerably in terms of present value. From MLB.com: Sources told MLB.com on Wednesday that the Nationals have no plans to give Harper a mega-deal comparable to Machado's 10-year, $300 million contract with the Padres, likely ending any chance for Washington's longtime face of the franchise to remain with the club. The Nationals offered Harper a contract worth $300 million over 10 years before the end of the 2018 regular season.

    Ferrari's new SF90 has reliably featured at the top end of the timesheets throughout the first week of the Barcelona test, as Sebastian Vettel headed the opening day and Charles Leclerc went quickest on the second. In addition to the usual testing caveats over engine power and fuel load, Ferrari's performances have been flattered by the fact reigning champion Mercedes has left it late in the week to run the softer compounds. But after Lewis Hamilton said on Wednesday that the Italian cars were looking “very, very strong”, teammate Bottas went as far as to suggest Ferrari had an initial edge.

    Duke might have to figure out what the Zion Show will look like without its namesake. All because of a freak injury to arguably the most exciting player in college basketball in the opening minute of the sport's fiercest rivalry, one that helped turn a widely anticipated matchup - in front of yet another crowd of celebrities, this one including Spike Lee and former President Barack Obama - into a blowout. As his Nike shoe blew out, Williamson sprained his right knee on the first possession of what became top-ranked Duke's 88-72 loss to No. 8 North Carolina on Wednesday night.

    The Anaheim Ducks have taken Jakob Silfverberg off of the trade market with an unofficial five-year extension. Salary cap “tagging” issues could explain why the deal is unofficial – and could be unofficial until March – but various reporters (from The OC Register's Elliott Teaford to Eric Stephens/Jon Cooper of The Athletic) confirm that the deal with Silfverberg, a 28-year-old who would have become an unrestricted free agent. Sportsnet's Elliotte Friedman reports that the cap hit will be $5.25 million beginning in 2019-20, backing up Cooper and Stephens' report (sub required) that it would-be in the low-$5M range.

    The Boston Bruins have desperately needed scoring depth for the entire season and tried to address that hole on Wednesday evening by acquiring forward Charlie Coyle from the Minnesota Wild in exchange for Ryan Donato and a conditional fifth-round pick. The 26-year-old Coyle has 10 goals and 18 assists in 60 games this season and is still signed for more full season at a salary cap hit of $3.2 million. Even though the Bruins' offense has been ridiculously top-heavy this season with almost all of their forward production coming from the trio Patrice Bergeron, David Pastrnak, and Brad Marchand, they still have one of the league's best records and entered the day with the second-highest point to...
