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

  • Get excited, out-of-towners: tonight's game against the Pittsburgh Penguins is on NHL Network. [NHL.com]
  • Jeff Carter missed practice on Wednesday with a "maintenance day," although it might be a little more than the Paul Holmgren and the Flyers are letting on. [Philly Sports Daily] [@AnthonySan37]
  • The Flyers signed Bemidji State Beavers captain Matt Read to a three-year deal on Thursday. The Courier-Post spelled Bemidji wrong in a headline, so they're not getting a link. [BSH] [Philly Sports Daily]
  • Read will join the Phantoms for the rest of the season. [Up North Sports Report]
  • Danny Syvret was sent down to the Phantoms yesterday. Also, Andrew Rowe returned to the team from Greenville now that he has enough games under his belt to qualify for the ECHL playoffs. He'll go back down to get some playoff experience. [PostStar.com] [PSD]
  • Speaking of the Phantoms, we'll be in Glens Falls this weekend to take in the action on Friday and Saturday night. Anything you'd like us to cover, in particular? Drop us a line.
  • Panotch on the goaltending issues, namely Bob's Tuesday night performance. [CSN Philly]
  • Okay, so today calls for a dedicated row for Philly Sports Daily. Dave Isaac is clearly following in Steve Whyno's footsteps, writing 900 stories a day, including these two features: The Flyers aren't concerned about the goaltending woes [PSD], but the Crosby-less Penguins still worry them [PSD].
  • Jim Jackson compares last year's "Big Four" defensemen to this year's "Big Five." There's a Drexel = Sean O`Donnell joke in there somewhere. [CSN Philly]
  • Mike Chen broke down the numbers to find out which team is the dirtiest in the league and which player cheats the most. Hint: they'll both play at the Wells Fargo Center tonight. [SBNation.com]
  • Finally, it appears as though God hates the Calgary Flames. [SBNation.com] [Puck Daddy]
