Thursday Morning Fly-By: Drunk with masthead power!

Today's open discussion thread, complete with your daily dose of Philadelphia Flyers news and notes...

Geoff got the day off to rest him for the playoff push so in his stead I shall do my best Geoff impersonation-with some bad jokes thrown in, because that's what I'm known for now, apparently.

  • Recaps of last night's win over my second favorite team, the mighty Panthers of Florida [BSH] PhillySportsDaily] [FlyersFaithful] [CSNPhilly] [Inquirer]
  • Because we need to talk about Nodl more, he ended his scoring drought last night. Haters still gonna hate? [PhillySportsDaily]
  • Blackhawks Coach Joel Quenneville was hospitalized yesterday, not something you'd wish on any team []
  • Atlanta Thrashers Ownership Claims 'Sense Of Urgency' As Relocation Talk Gets Louder...and Byfuglien's getting LAAAARRRGGERRRR [] [Puck Daddy]
  • Ville Leino missed last night's game with a lower body injury (insert your own bad joke here) [PhillySportsDaily][BSH]
  • With Leino out, Lavi chose Shelley over Zherdev, which says A LOT about Zherdev [InTheRoom]
  • Blah blah blah token advanced stats article blah blah blah [ObjectiveNHL]
  • Hartnell is streaky and knows blogs keep tallies of his falls. Why don't we do this? [PhillySportsDaily]
  • 21 saves on 23 shots for Jakub Kovář in a 5-2 win over Litvínov. [EuroFlyers]
  • Jakub Kovar is starting enough games to make Marty Brodeur jealous. []
  • Atlanta probably overpaid for Byfuglien...but that's the future owners' problem. [Behind The Net]
  • Boston is looking for a defensmen at the deadline, preferably one that won't choke. []
  • Rumors, and not the Fleetwood Mac kind. []
  • Lastly, since I love the Panthers so much here's a random article about them. [LitterBoxCats]
  • The price for players like my beloved Stephen Weiss went up because of the Versteeg deal []
  • Lastly, (see what I did there) You think the designer would do a Fly-By without linking to a design article? Ha! You jest. What if the Wild weren't the Wild? [Icethetics]
