Boring weeks mean there aren't a lot of pictures to choose from. Looking back into the archives is never a bad idea in these cases.

Your daily dose of Philadelphia Flyers news...

  • Last night's NHL scores: Capitals 4, Sharks 1Avalanche 3, Canadiens 2Wings 5, Kings 2 - Senators 7, Lightning 1 - Blackhawks 3, Predators 1 - Coyotes 3, Blues 2 OT
  • The Flyers are back tonight. NHL scheduling has them playing for the first time since Saturday, and after tonight they're off until next Thursday. How's that happen in an Olympic year when the schedule is supposed to be condensed? We're not alone, at least. Atlanta is in the same boat. [Twitter]
  • Gotta raise the question, here. Which league is worse at scheduling, the NHL or MLB? Playoff games ending at 2:15 AM without extra innings or two games in 12 days?
  • Regardless, the Flyers are looking forward to ending this current layoff. [CSN Philly]
  • Also in the Panaccio article, JVR will return and play with Arron Asham and Mika Pyorala.
  • In case you don't scroll down, you might miss this. Reader DragonGirl0583 uploaded a video of the supposed "dirty" hit by Danny Briere. As you will see, James Wisniewski is a joke. [BSH Comments]
  • You've heard of six-on-five hockey; you pull the goalie, it's not a hard concept. But um, seven-on-five hockey? To close the game? For twenty seconds? There's video if you don't believe it. [NHL FanHouse]
  • Islander fans have been nervous over the past 36 hours or so, as it looked like owner Charles Wang had finally pulled out of the proposed Lighthouse Project that would cement the teams' future on Long Island. Wang says the project is still on the table, though. [Newsday]
  • Another round of jersey fouls! [Puck Daddy]
  • A Q&A session with former Flyer favorite Scottie Upshall. [FanHouse]
  • We now know what the Vancouver 2010 medals look like. Jury still out? [LA Times]
  • Old story, but I couldn't find it last week when the whole Hartnell "biting" incident went down. This ran on this Pittsburgh newspaper blog back in March, and it shows how cool a guy Hartnell really is. [Empty Netters]
  • Phils take game one in LA! [Phillies Nation] - [The Good Phight] - [The Fightin's]
