Cousins adjusting to pro game

"In juniors, everything was pretty straightforward, you have four good years, you get drafted, everything’s good," Cousins said. "You come here and you think it’s going to be easy, but it’s not. It’s not easy at all."

The Pope owns a Flyers jersey

Pope Francis actually got jerseys of six Philadelphia sports teams: The four major sports, a Union jersey — which is at least a sport that’s popular in both Italy and the former Jorge Mario Bergoglio’s native Argentina — and [a] St. Joe’s Prep football jersey.

On the flight home from Sochi, the Hockey Night in Canada crew travelled with Team Finland. Kimmo Timonen was sitting not far from us. At one point, we asked if he would reconsider his decision to retire following this season because he's at such a high level. He laughed it off. Now comes word he's re-considering. Good. He can still play and he's a smart, smart quote.
