Today's open discussion thread, including your daily dose of Philadelphia Flyers news and notes...

  • Last night's NHL scores... Flyers 3 - Devils 2; SJ 3 - TOR 2; COL 5 - STL 2; PHO 6 - EDM 1; ANA 4 - LA 2
  • Recaps of last night's win: [NHL] [BSH] [TSN] [SBNation] [In Lou We Trust] [The700Level] [CSNPhilly] [Inquirer] [DelcoTimes] [DelcoTimes] [Inquirer] [CSNPhilly]
  • The Flyers are tied for 7th place in the East after last night's win.
  • The biggest story from last night's game (besides the Flyers scoring goals or coming back from two goals down) was Jeff Carter's hit on Anssi Salmela.  [BSH] [Puck Daddy] [Daily News] [The700level]
  • The good news is that Salmela was up walking around and didn't go to the hospital. [Sarah Baicker]
  • Bob McKenzie called it a "clean hit on a player in scoring position.  Unfortunate result." [Bob McKenzie] [Bob McKenzie]
  • The other big news was Ray Emery's injury.  He had an MRI on his hip. [CSNPhilly] [DelCoTimes]...
  • ...Does he need surgery Mr. Holmgren? "Is it something where down the road we need to address this surgically? We need to get a feel of where he's at right now.  We all seem to think he's going to be fine for the short term, anyway. We'll have a better idea about the long term after we get the results." Great. [Daily News]...
  • ...But that won't affect contract negotiations.  Wait, what? [CSNFlyer]
  • The Flyers are lobbying to host the NHL Entry Draft and/or the NHL All-Star Game in 2012 or 2013.  Travis is all over this. [BSH] [Flyers]
  • In lobbying the NHL, Comcast-Spectacor sent impersonators to league headquarters.  Who and what? Rocky Balboa and Ben Franklin handed out soft pretzels.  Yes, really. [Daily News]
  • A couple of fluff pieces here:  One is on the Flyers dentist [Daily News] and the other is on the Flyers equipment manager heading to the Olympics. [Daily News]
  • After last night, the Flyers now have an 84.2% chance of making the playoffs. [Tim Panaccio]
  • An interview with Ville Leino. [NHLFlyers]
  • AHL news: Word is that the Albany River Rats move to Charlotte will be announced Wednesday. [Tim McManus]
  • Maybe you missed it, but a Capitals blogger got into a spat with Mike Milbury.  This is ugly for both parties. [Puck Daddy]
  • Are there any big names on the trade market still?  How about Tim Thomas. [From The Rink]
  • The Flyers were in Toronto last night scouting the Leafs.  Speculation can begin. [BSH]
  • Is Marc-Andre Fleury overrated? "With Fleury’s latest loss in the books...his save percentage on the season has dipped to a mediocre .906. That ranks him 23rd among the 30 NHL starters... Even-strength save percentage... tells a similar story, slotting Fleury 24th of the league’s 30 starting goalies." [Hockey or Die]
  • Lastly, this is a pretty funny video:
