Monday Morning Fly By: Does two straight wins count as a winning streak nowadays?

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

Bruce Bennett

* A win! Two straight wins, in fact! Vincent Lecavalier hat trick! Good things happened on Saturday against the Islanders. Check the comments from our crowdsourced recap on Saturday for a, uh, recap of sorts, and also read these if you'd like: [Inquirer] [CSNPhilly] [Hockeybuzz/Meltzer]

* While we're talking about the Islanders, holy crap they traded Matt Moulson and two draft picks to Buffalo for Thomas Vanek last night: [Newsday] [Lighthouse Hockey] [Die By The Blade]

* And while we're still talking about the Islanders, news broke this weekend that former top draft pick and recent amnesty buyout Rick DiPietro got an AHL tryout in Carolina's organization: [Lighthouse Hockey]

* Apparently Craig Berube referred to the team having "jam" on Saturday night, because that was pretty much inevitable at some point. []

* The power play scored a goal on Saturday but it still kinda stinks: [CSNPhilly, autoplay warning]

* The Phantoms saw a losing streak extend to six on Friday: [Post-Star] But then they ended that streak with a 3-1 in on Saturday: [Post-Star]

* Scary news out of Nashville, where apparently the injury Pekka Rinne suffered may be "very dangerous": [SBNation]

* What would it look like if the NHL had an "eye for an eye" system in place, in which it suspended players on a team for the duration of an injury caused by that player's teammate? [Copper & Blue]

* Scottie Upshall squirted Tampa defenseman Radko Gudas with a water bottle from the bench and boy howdy was Gudas pissed about it: [CBS]

* The guy leading the NHL in points per game so far this year is ... Alex Steen. Raise your hand if you saw that one coming: [Puck Daddy]

* The Flames unveiled some new third jerseys. They're ... not bad. Maybe a little too much going on there on the front, but I kinda like 'em. [Sporting News]

* Finally, a look into Bernie Parent's side job with the FBI: [Flyers Faithful]
