Special teams, suspensions, and flying sausages in today's edition of the Morning Fly By...
Today's open discussion thread, complete with your daily dose of Philadelphia Flyers news and notes...
*While special teams are the Flyers' most obvious problem, could the real issue be their inability to hit the target? (BSH)
*The league has handed down a two-game suspension to Islanders forward Colin McDonald for his hit on Penguins defenseman Ben Lovejoy Tuesday night. Reasonable? Eeeehhhhh....(SB Nation)
*Flyers' forward Sean Couturier has hit a bit of a defensive slump. Couturier and the other 23 guys, no? (Philly.com)
*Goaltender Kari Lehtonen makes it two incredible saves in as many days. (SB Nation)
*Is it too early to take a serious look at McKenzie's draft rankings? (TSN)
*Right now, the Flyers sit at the bottom of the Atlantic. Only 4 points back from the first place Devils, though. Small victories. (The 700 Level)
*Over in Voorhees, the Flyers spent an entire practice working on the power play. Probably a good idea since it's just awful. (Courier Post)
*Unbelievably, someone threw a sausage onto the ice during the shootout in Boston Tuesday night. A sausage. (Puck Daddy)
*X-rays reveal that Ryan Callahan suffered a minor shoulder injury during Tuesday's game against the Flyers and will miss about two weeks. (Blueshirt Banter)
