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

*CLAUDE GIROUX. That game winner was something to behold. Hell of a 100th goal. That third period was the opposite of pretty much every third period this team has played so far this year. What a great game. Official recap can be found here; we'll probably see a BSH recap later. SBN wasn't cooperating last night.
