Tuesday Morning Fly By: Stevens, Referee Bias, Leclair to the Hall, and BSH Radio Tonight at 7 PM ET

Your daily dose of Philadelphia Flyers news...

  • Last night's NHL scores... BUF 3, TOR 0 - PIT 5, NYR 2 - WSH 3, CAR 2 - ATL 4, FLA 3 - CBJ 5, STL 2 - COL 3, TBL 0 - DET 4, DAL 1 - CGY 5, NSH 0
  • John LeClair will be inducted into the US Hockey Hall of Fame tonight in Boston. Former Flyer Tony Amonte is also in the induction class. []
  • Monday night was a weird one around the NHL, especially in the first half hour or so of the hockey night.
  • First, Keith Ballard took out his own goaltender with a two handed chop across his head. He obviously meant to break his stick over the post, but he missed, and Tomas Vokoun's face got the brunt of it. [Litter Box Cats]
  • Second, Alex Ovechkin collided knee-on-knee with Carolina's Tim Gleason. AO got the worst of the blow, an adding insult to the injury for the Caps, he received a major penalty and a game misconduct. He'll be getting an automatic suspension from the league as well, given that this is his second major penalty in the last week. [YouTube]
  • Back to the Flyers now... John Stevens speculation led the discussion all day on Monday. It continues. [CSN Philly]
  • A look at who could replace Stevens, if it comes to that. [Flying P]
  • The other news on Monday was that Jared Ross was sent back to the Phantoms. But more important than anything else is that Simon Gagne unexpectedly skated on the Skate Zone ice. [Gormley]
  • Also in the Gormley link, Emery practiced in the pads he's expected to wear in the Winter Classic: Ray Emery showed up at Monday’s practice wearing old school goalie equipment, complete with plain, brown pads, brown waffle blocker with white circles and a brown catching glove.
  • Those damn refs are biased... toward the home team. Great statistical breakdown by Gabe Desjardins and J.P. [Behind The Net] - [Japers' Rink]
  • Rich Peverley wins his feud with Mike Richards... or something? [Bird Watchers Anonymous]
  • NBC and the NHL are preparing this year's Winter Classic commercials. Details here... [Puck The Media]
  • Speaking of the Classic, it looks like the Blackhawks are turning their outdoor threads into permanent third jerseys. [Blackhawks]
  • It looks like a huge attempt to gain forum members to me, but The NHL Arena is running a "blog-off" in which they pit different blogs against each other in a tournament format. There are only 21 votes total in the first round for the Flyers division as of this writing, so this clearly doesn't mean too much. But here it is, either way. [The NHL Arena]
  • BSH Radio. Tonight at 7 Eastern. Right here.
