Tuesday Morning Fly By: Closing out the road trip in Newark.

Eric Hartline-USA TODAY Sports

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

*The Flyers are finally back East tonight to take on the Devils at 730. Check back later for the pregame write-up; in the meantime, check out this fanpost on Marty, puck handling, and the NJ Devils.

*Both The Inquirer and CSN Philly have noticed that Claude Giroux is more effective the fewer minutes he plays. This was a great article when ASF wrote it three weeks ago.

*Bill Meltzer wraps up the performance of the Flyers' prospects at the World Junior Tournament. [Hockeybuzz]

*Phantoms goalie Cal Heeter has been named AHL Player of the Week. [Flyers]

*The Flyers will need to keep the pedal down if they want to remain a playoff team for the second half of the season. [Daily News]

*It's starting to look like Matt Read's "upper body injury" is a concussion, which is terrible news. [Philly.com]

*In better injury-related news, Erik Gustafsson is taking "huge steps" in practice and we might see the return of Michael Raffl tonight. Hooray!

*Team Canada will announce their Olympic roster today. [ProHockeyTalk]

*Yesterday we got roster announcements from the Czechs, the Slovenians, and the Swiss. [IIHF]

*Those roster announcements came with good news for Mark Streit and Jakub Voracek, who will both represent their countries in Sochi.

*Even before their roster announcement, Canada remains on top of the current Olympic power rankings. [SB Nation]

*Paul Stewart on the "staged fight" between Jay Rosehill and Paul Bissonnette the other night in Pheonix. [Hockeybuzz]

*It's always fun to see whose sweater was the best selling of the year. Nice to see number 7 on the list, number 1 in your hearts Captain Claude Giroux make an appearance. [Puck Daddy]

*And finally, this interview with a former amateur hockey player who suffered a spinal injury after crashing into the boards is worth a listen. He's trying to push for a kind of NHL warning track, the "look up line", that would alert players looking at the puck that they're going to hit the boards. [Here & Now]
