Eric Hartline-USA TODAY Sports

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

*Sens tonight. They're in a freefall, the Flyers' playoff hopes are essentially crushed...should be a good time. Preview the game here and be sure to check back for the BSH take at 1:00.

*So yesterday NAPGATE 2013 burst into being, with the media going nuts over claims that Ilya Bryzgalov fell asleep during a meeting.

*This came on the back of Bryz's widely reported "Why should I care?" comments, which were really, really overblown. (Sports Illustrated)

*Icetime: who is getting it? (BSH)

*USA Hockey is giving Canada a run for it's money in pretty much every international tournament at this point and that's awesome. (SB Nation)

*Paul Holmgren still holds out hope for a postseason this year. That's adorable. (CSN Philly)

*It's Frozen Four time; let's take a look at the likely draft picks playing in this year's final four. (Western College Hockey)

*Grossmann is out 2-3 weeks with a concussion. So we'll see you in October, Gmann. (Flyers Faithful)

*For some reason, Rihanna wore an Ottawa Senators jersey without pants the other day. Now it's a meme. Oh internet, never change. (SB Nation)

*And finally, Don Cherry's twitter feed is every bit as hilarious as you'd want it to be. (Backhand Shelf)
