*Saturday's game in Dallas was...not great. Particularly for that one minute in the second. Recap here if you missed it, and scoring chance summary from BSHer RedWire here for an in-depth look. Flyers are in Ottawa tonight to take on the Senators at 7:30. Preview to follow.

*Zac Rinaldo started the game off badly and left the Flyers to deal with a seven minute long penalty kill right off the bat. [CSN Philly]

*Bit of craziness in the Bruins - Penguins game Saturday. Brooks Orpik sent Loui Eriksson to the dressing room. Then James Neal kneed a defenseless guy in the head. Then Shawn Thornton sent Orpik to the hospital. Total madness. Both Neal and Thornton have well-deserved hearings with Shanny. Don Cherry had some words about the incidents.

*On zone entries in the NHL. [Grantland]
