  • Photos from last night's game: [SBNation]
  • Without a recap for last night's loss, here's my comment of the night"I want to believe that Boosh just let that one go by and thought to himself "How do you feel when someone doesn’t play for you mother f---ers! Take that!" - KreiderDesigns
  • A depressing stat:  "Flyers have been down 3-1, 2-1, 2-1, 2-0 after the first period of their last 4 games." [John Boruk]
  • But Jacob De Serres won both games for Brandon this weekend, stopping 48 of 53 shots. Game 2 recap: [Luber's Lounge] Game 1 Recap: [Luber's Lounge]
  • Rare highlights from Joacim Eriksson's last game.  He lost 4-2. [euroflyers]
  • Johan Backlund was in the building last night, so expect him to be the backup soon. [DNFlyers]
  • Why is Leighton to Boucher bad? [Behind The Net]
  • Hey, Chris Pronger "knows Flyers can't afford to take nights off."  Wow, I'm glad he's aware of this.  UGH. [CSNPhilly]
  • At least he's in contention for the Norris Trophy. [DelcoTimes]
  • Saturday's terrible loss?  Coach Laviolette says it wasn't Brian Boucher's fault.  I think we all knew that. [Inquirer]
  • Flyers have the 17th best PK unit?  Nah, they're "having success". [Daily News]
  • A bunch of stories from around the league:  First, the Senators are "Jekyll and Hyde": [Hockey or Die]
  • Tomas Vokoun let it a terrible goal, but the Panthers defended him. [Puck Daddy]
  • Thought the Avalanche were playing over their head?  So are the Sharks. No, really. [Behind The Net]
  • An amazing fight took place over the weekend between Cam Janssen and Pierre-Luc Letourneau-Leblond.  It lasted three minutes, so that alone should make it worth your time. [SBNation]
  • As a Michigan fan, this story is great.  A no-name goaltender backstops the Cinderella Wolverines hockey team. [Puck Daddy]
  • Lastly, another very good story.  Anthony SanFilippo asks:  Would you rather the Flyers make the playoffs (and surely get bounced) or collapse? [In The Room]
