*Another two-game weekend, another Monday of depressed reflection. This can't go on forever, right? If you missed out on the fun, recap Friday's Coyotes game here, Saturday's Red Wings game here.

*Penalties are an obvious problem for this Flyers team, and Craig Berube thinks that's been the case for too long. (CSN Philly)
