Your daily dose of Philadelphia Flyers news...

  • Last night's NHL scores... CAR 6, TOR 5 (SO) - BOS 4, ATL 3 (SO) - OTT 6, PIT 2 - STL 3, PHX 2 - NSH 3, NJD 2 - CBJ 4, DAL 1 - CHI 7, CGY 1 -  ANA 4, TBL 3 (OT)
  • We're gearing up for tonight's showdown with West-leading San Jose with previews from the InquirerNHL.com, and San Jose Mercury News. Slim selection today...
  • Ray Emery will be in net this evening.
  • Out in San Jose, they won't get a chance to see every East Coast team. Thanks, NHL. [Mercury News]
  • Get your Flyers and Sixers at recession buster prices. Someone tell them the recession is over... [Gormley]
  • The Flyers defense has been good. [Daily News]
  • Notably, Matt Carle has been good. The effects of The Pronger rear their head... [CSN]
  • Jari Kurri runs things in Finland, and he likes Mika Pyorala's game. The word Olympics has been mentioned. [Bucks Co. Times]
  • The Flyers are usually plagued with injuries, and while we haven't be exempt this season, it clearly hasn't been as bad as in recent years. Philadelphia ranks 20th in the league, on pace to lose 183 man games to injury this season. [From The Rink]
  • There was another incidence last night where referees had to use their discretion on the "intent to blow the whistle" rule. I don't think it was as bad, nor as obvious, as the terrible call in the Stars/Wings game the other night, but this one was in OT, so it's clearly not good. It went against the Leafs, so we need a Toronto-based site to break this down. Just for laughs, if nothing else. [Pension Plan Puppets]
  • Dallas' James Neal scrambles Derek Dorsett's eggs. Suspension worthy? [Kukla's]
  • Scott Niedermayer tries to give a stick to a little girl, but two drunken idiots decide they want it more. Brawling ensues on live television. [Puck Daddy]
