*No comeback magic from the Flyers on Saturday, which sucks. Recap of the game here. Tonight the boys take on the Minnesota Wild at home; maybe they'll come out and give us 60 minutes of dominance that results in a definitive win. A Festivus miracle!

*Meltzer and ASF on Saturday's loss, respectively. [Hockeybuzz] [Flyers]

*Vincent Lecavalier made a surprise return to the lineup this weekend. He looked good. [CSN Philly] [Inquirer]

*Unfortunately, it looks like the team will be without Steve Downie for the near future. [Philly.com]

*Paul Holmgren says that Downie's "upper body injury" is not a concussion. If that's true it's good news. [CSN Philly]

*The Flyers organization has reached a settlement with their season ticket holders, resolving the lawsuit that stemmed from the Winter Classic package the ticket holders were forced to buy for the 2012 Classic. [Philly.com]

*Buried in this Larry Brooks article on player safety is a rumor that suggests that the Flyers are going hard after Montreal's Max Pacioretty. [New York Post]

*Apparently the Flyers tried to deal both Mike Richards AND Jeff Carter to Columbus. [Blue Jackets Xtra]

*Reviewing and recapping episode two of HBO's 24/7, in which Mike Babcock yells a lot. [Puck Daddy]

*This shootout goal is pretty, pretty nice. [SB Nation]

*The ten best Twitter moments in hockey of 2013 and the ten best shootout goals of 2013.

*On how size relates to winning and offense in the NHL. [NHL Numbers]
