Your daily dose of Philadelphia Flyers...

  • Last night's NHL scores... DET 3, NYR 1 - OTT 4, ATL 3 (SO)
  • Dan Carcillo was suspended four games by the NHL yesterday (link). Reaction from around the web...
  • ... beginning with the Philly MSM via Panaccio [CSN Philly] ...
  • ... the enemy reaction [Japers' Rink] ...
  • ... the outsiders views [Hockey Or Die] and [Puck Daddy] ...
  • ... and the local reaction from [The 700 Level] and [FGSB].
  • Here's an interesting piece that revolves around the same suspension, analyzing media bias from our MSM journos. I know it's from Washington, but I happen to agree with a lot of what they have to say here, unfortunately. At least take the read and get the perspective out of it. [Japers']
  • Meanwhile, back in Philly/Voorhees, the Flyers are prepping for the Canadiens, who they take on tonight in Montreal. Preview and game thread later, the game page for now. [SB Nation] ...
  • ... Peter Laviolette ran his first lengthy practice yesterday, and by all accounts it was a long, difficult skate. [CSN Philly] and [Bucks Co. Times]...
  • ... and that kind of skate seems necessary, as this week is a major crossroads in the Flyers season [Inq] ...
  • ... in which they hope they can find a fresh start [Globe & Mail] ...
  • ... and, in one writers opinion, the captain has stepped up. Will the rest of the team? [Daily News]
  • Another preview of tonight's game from the neutral perspective [NHL.com] ...
  • ... but only one from the Montreal perspective [Gazette], as they seem forever occupied in their 100th anniversary celebration, which was supposed to end Friday after about a year and a half of chest-thumping. Be sure to check out SBN's Eyes on the Prize for everything Habs, though.
  • Despite a slow start, it seems Ken Hitchcock's job is safe in Columbus. [Dispatch]
  • Happy birthday to Peter Laviolette.
