  • Recaps of last night's game: [BSH] [Japers' Rink] [] [Flyers Faithful] [CSNPhilly] [Flyer Files] [Inquirer] [] [Philly Sports Daily] []
  • Looking at the two biggest hits of the night and asking which was better: []
  • Andreas Nodl had himself a great game. And he gets a great look from Dave Isaac for it: [Philly Sports Daily]
  • Our old friend Stephen Whyno analyzes the game from a Caps perspective: [Washington Times]
  • From Bruce Boudreau's post-game quotes: "[The Flyers] have gone through ten game stretches where they have only won two games. I think every team has gone through that, except for Vancouver this year. That doesn’t marvel at me. I knew that we would fight until the end." [Flyer Files]
  • Tons of stories on the Flyers goaltending. First, Phil Sheridan, then Jack McCaffery, then Anthony SanFilippo, and finally Frank Seravalli. You like (or find anything to like) in any of them?
  • John Smallwood chimes in with a story entitled "Flyers aren't looking like a team headed to Stanley Cup Finals". Anything good in here? [Daily News]
  • The Phantoms lost to the Checkers last night, 5-2. Zac Rinaldo got another game misconduct, this time for "deliberate attempt to injure." Yay. []
  • Jody Shelley will miss 4 weeks after fracturing a bone in his face: [BSH] [Philly Sports Daily] [Frequent Flyers] [Flyer Files] [CSNPhilly] [] [Daily News] []
  • Despite last night ending in a shootout, the team said playoff mode began yesterday. [Philly Sports Daily]
  • The Flyers recalled Danny Syvret last night. There are rumors I do not believe, so will not link to. [Philly Sports Daily] [Flyer Files]
  • Notes from yesterday's Phantoms practice, including Marc-Andre Bourdon being sent to the ECHL: []
  • Nothing factual, but just an FYI: Teemu says Joacim Eriksson plans to come to NA before the 2012-2013 season, when his contract is up: [euroflyers]
  • Somehow, I missed this. So thanks to mtitantic for finding it (in the Flyers Faithful article). Brendan Ranford was suspended for six games last week after he cross-checked a referee. Awesome: [Kamloops Daily News]
  • Justin Williams is going to be injured for awhile. Sad, but... at least he signed a 4-year contract before getting hurt this time. [Puck Daddy]
  • Looking at Craig Anderson's new deal with the Senators: [Hockey Prospectus]
  • How many points will it take to make the playoffs in the Western Conference? []
  • Another in the Frequently Asked Questions installment, this time dealing with luck. M, this one is for you: [Behind the Net]
  • Lastly, a great editorial from Travis: "Get the message through that no, Matt, you don't need to elbow people in the face to stay in the NHL." []
