Wednesday Morning Fly By: The East Tightens, Prospect News, and Donnellon Defends Richards

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

  • Last night's NHL scores... BOS 1 - NJ 0 (OT); ATL 3 - TOR 2; OTT 5 - WAS 4 (OT); CLB 3 - TB 2; NYR 4 - NYI 3; DET 5 - EDM 4; LA 2 - NAS 0; STL 4 - CHI 2; VAN 4 - PHX 1
  • The Flyers are still in 6th, but with Boston and Atlanta winning last night, 9th place is only 2 points behind the Flyers, with the Rangers sitting 4 points back in 10th.
  • In case you missed the story yesterday, Dan Carcillo was suspended two games for his high stick on David Clarkson. [BSH] [Flyers]
  • A story on recently signed forward Mike Testwuide, and a rather optimistic "expect him to challenge for a roster spot next season."  [Flyers]
  • In news that has apparently escaped everyone, the Flyers have signed defenseman Erik Gustafsson out of Northern Michigan University. [euroflyers] He has some pretty good offensive skills, apparently. [euroflyers]
  • His mother had some, interesting, words of praise for her son. [euroflyers]
  • The Phantoms' playoff hopes are still technically alive, but not really. [PostStar]
  • Jussi Rynnas update:  He's in North America talking to NHL GMs. [euroflyers]
  • The game against the Devils was Fan Appreciation Night.  Here's the intro video. [Flyers]
  • Flyers' prospect Jakub Kovar is now a free agent in Europe. [euroflyers]
  • An interesting take on Mike Richards' season: [FGSB]
  • Andrei Popov is having an impressive postseason. [euroflyers]
  • And he supposedly has an agreement in place with the Flyers for next season, just waiting for his KHL contract to officially run out. [euroflyers]
  • Ville Leino got another story written about him, this time in the [Inquirer]
  • Yesterday, it was said Joacim Eriksson may be coming over the the States.  Apparently, there is still at least one GM interested in bringing him up to the SEL. [euroflyers]
  • Jonathan Bernier recorded his first shutout in the NHL in just his 6th start.  Could he be among the "young goalies" the Flyers are targeting in the offseason? [NHL.com]
  • The missing questions from ESPN's NHL player survey.  Good for a chuckle. [Down Goes Brown]
  • A very interesting take on the Mike Richards by Sam Donnellon.  I highly recommend the read. [Daily News]
  • Lastly, Donnellon used a parallel that I used in the radio show, taped last night (he stole it!), which will be up later today.
