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

  • Recaps of last night's win: [BSH] [CSNPhilly] [Philly Sports Daily] [delcotimes.com] [Flyers Faithful] [Inquirer] [The700level] [Flyer Files]
  • Last night, the Zherdev - Carter - Giroux line had a pretty fantastic shift. What's forgotten? The team played like crap for a good 8 minutes afterwards: [Philly Sports Daily]
  • The Flyers won their 1,000th home game last night, becoming the first expansion team to do that: [Philly Sports Daily] [Daily News]
  • They took advantage of power plays last night, which was a welcome sight: [delcotimes.com]
  • Possibly a coincidence, but the Flyers win when Dan Carcillo plays: [Daily News]
  • Making the case - mostly Carcillo making it - that he should play more: [In the Room]
  • The agent for Ville Leino expects a deal to get done, and the Flyers say they have $4.1 million in tagged cap space: [Inquirer]
  • Chris Pronger is wearing protective guards on his skates, as the Flyers protect their investment: [Flyers Goal Scored By...]
  • John Paddock went on NHL Live yesterday and gave up a lot of information, mainly that the team will look to get "deeper" at the deadline: [Philly Sports Daily]
  • John Smallwood writes about the Flyers, and this sentence sums up his article: "There is no logical downside to the Flyers finishing with the most points." Gee, thanks. [Daily News]
  • Read the transcript of Tim McManus' live chat yesterday here: [PostStar.com]
  • Previewing tonight's Phantoms' game against Binghamton: [PostStar.com]
  • Power Rankings for this week, where New Jersey gets out of the basement: [SBNation.com]
  • Looking at score effects on shooting percentage: "This is significantly less than the 70% due to luck or the almost 30% due to other factors like shooting talent, shot quality and scorer bias." [Behind the Net]
  • A story about THE CODE from a FORMER HOCKEY PLAYER (and MarioD's favorite columnist): "In this current era of the professional hockey, it's far more intimidating to play a guy who can hit than one who can fight. I have to believe it's only a matter of time before more general managers realize this, and stop paying thugs like Derek Boogaard(notes) one-point-anything million per year to not impact the game." [Puck Daddy]
  • Lastly, a fantastic - and lengthy - feature on Dancin' Shawny: [Philly Sports Daily]
