Monday Morning Fly By: Up and down in South Florida

Joel Auerbach

We welcome a new Fly By writer and look back at a busy weekend of Flyers hockey this Monday.

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

* Welcome Kelly, one of our new Fly By writers. (Yes, *one of*.)

* The Flyers (with Briere!) took it to South Florida in a fun 7-1 win over the Cats on Saturday night. Game recaps from NHL.com, Sports Illustrated, ESPN, Philly.com, & BSH.

* The fun didn't continue in Tampa, however, last night as the Flyers dropped one to the Bolts, 5-1. Full round-ups of Sunday's game from the Daily News, the Inquirer, Anthony SanFilippo, Bill Meltzer, CSN, Flyers Faithful, and Raw Charge.

* Penalties have been an issue. A full breakdown of every Flyers penalty this year: [DN]

* Matt Carle is finally appreciated in South Florida. [DN]

* The return of No. 48 sends Wellwood back to Adirondack. Bummer, kid's got wheels. We'll have more on Wellwood here at BSH later today. [Star-Ledger]

* Scott Laughton has been sent back to the OHL; excellent choice, front office! [BSH]

* Brandon Manning replaced Erik Gustafsson in tonight's AHL All-Star Game. He hopes he's turned a corner after a rough stretch earlier this season. [Post Star]

* Injuries! Rumors! When players go down, rumors spark up. [Sporting News]

* Waived Titans goalie Niko Hovinen was claimed by the Oilers. [ESPN]

* Meltzer explains why last week's defeat of the Rangers is the kind of character win that successful teams are built on. [Hockeybuzz]

* Speaking of characters: Bryz. You'll catch onto this "Flyers hockey" thing at some point, comrade. Never change. [The 700 Level]

* Edmonton's Nail Yakupov became an instant favorite last week after scoring an incredible game-tying goal (and celebrating awesomely) against the defending Cup winners ... and somehow this is controversial? [TSN] [SBNation.com]

* Matt Read completed his first career hat trick on Saturday, and it was excellent. Relive the video: [NHL.com] And read how it was a rare night for Reader: [Daily News]

* Teams hiring in-house beat writers. The future? [Puck Daddy]
