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

  • Yay Kimmo's back!: []

  • Danny Briere was pretty happy about that empty-net goal: [SB Nation Philly] [CSNPhilly]
  • The Phantoms went 1-7 on the power play and gave up two goals in the final seven minutes to lose 2-1: [PostStar]
  • Mike Richards thought he broke his own 20+ game goal drought, and even had it credited to him for a minute. Then it was taken away: [the700level]
  • I honestly don't even know what is trying to be said here, but the Flyers' don't need a Captain since they have one: [Backhand Shelf]

  • The NHL confirms there is a significant league-wide drop in penalties: [Edmonton Journal]
