Thursday Morning Fly By: Greetings from the bottom of the Atlantic

Special teams, suspensions, and flying sausages in today's edition of the Morning Fly By...

Elsa

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

*While special teams are the Flyers' most obvious problem, could the real issue be their inability to hit the target? (BSH)

*The league has handed down a two-game suspension to Islanders forward Colin McDonald for his hit on Penguins defenseman Ben Lovejoy Tuesday night. Reasonable? Eeeehhhhh....(SB Nation)

*Flyers' forward Sean Couturier has hit a bit of a defensive slump. Couturier and the other 23 guys, no? (Philly.com)

*Goaltender Kari Lehtonen makes it two incredible saves in as many days. (SB Nation)

*Is it too early to take a serious look at McKenzie's draft rankings? (TSN)

*Right now, the Flyers sit at the bottom of the Atlantic. Only 4 points back from the first place Devils, though. Small victories. (The 700 Level)

*Over in Voorhees, the Flyers spent an entire practice working on the power play. Probably a good idea since it's just awful. (Courier Post)

*Unbelievably, someone threw a sausage onto the ice during the shootout in Boston Tuesday night. A sausage. (Puck Daddy)

*X-rays reveal that Ryan Callahan suffered a minor shoulder injury during Tuesday's game against the Flyers and will miss about two weeks. (Blueshirt Banter)
