Thursday Morning Fly By: Blah.

Bruce Bennett

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

*Steve Mason deserved a better game from the team in front of him. Here are some links assembled before the world fell apart and a Rothencap of the game if you like torturing yourself.

*The Kings completed their comeback against the Sharks & the Wild beat the Avs to move on. [SB Nation]

*Claude Giroux is up against Evgeni Malkin in TSN's Play of the Year Showdown; go forth and vote for him if you feel so inclined. [TSN]

*Former Flyers coach Mike Keenan has won his first Gagarin Cup, making him the first coach to win both an NHL and KHL title... [ProHockeyTalk]

*...and he celebrated by attempting Russian karaoke. As one does. [Puck Daddy]

*The Florida Panthers have fired another head coach. Not a lot of stability in that job. [The Hockey News]

*Does a tough first round series hurt a Stanley Cup run? [Grantland]

*Parity means that a 3-0 series lead isn't what it used to be. [Sportsnet]

*Jaromir Jagr, Manny Malholtra, and Dominic Moore have been named Masterton Trophy finalists. [NHL.com]
