  • Dan Carcillo: Hero. [DelcoTimes] [CSNPhilly]
  • Along with Dan Carcillo stories, there are a ton of Mike Richards stories out today.  First, "When your leader and captain goes all out like that it's contagious," Ian Laperriere said. "I'm the oldest on this team and I get goose bumps when I see him hit and just give his body." [Daily News]
  • Second, "He's got the worst body on the team but he puts his body in front of everything, whether it's a puck or anything," Laperriere said while comparing Richards' physique to his eight-year-old son. [DelcoTimes]
  • Did you know Claude Giroux eats grilled cheese sandwiches before games?  Man, I don't know what I would have done if this story wasn't written. [Daily News]
  • From Rob Parent, "it’s a good thing that the Flyers themselves realize that making the referees their friends is going to help them win this series." [DelcoTimes]
  • Love Chris Pronger standing in front of the net on the PP?  Well, it was his idea. [DelcoTimes]
  • There's an agreement in place that has Sergei Bobrovsky reporting to Flyers training camp next year. [euroflyers] [BSH]
  • Jacob De Serres stopped 33 shots in Brandon's 4-2 Game 1 win... [Luber's Lounge]
  • ... and 28 saves on 31 shots as Brandon dropped Game 2.  Calgary scored the game-winning goal on a 5-on-3 power play in overtime. [Luber's Lounge]
  • Lastly, Julian engaged in a hysterical e-mail war with William Houston.  The same William Houston who took shots at James Mirtle. [Pension Plan Puppets]
