Monday Morning Fly By: We all needed that.

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

*BSH recaps what we're loosely calling the "game" against the Bruins on Saturday. (BSH)

*This weekend marked the long-awaited return of Andrej Meszaros to the lineup. He looked a bit rusty, but that's kind of expected. (CSN Philly)

*The Flyers made an odd and seemingly useless roster move this weekend, sending Boucher back to Glens Falls and bringing Michael Leighton back to Philly to backup Bryz. (

*This weekend also saw the end of that insufferable Blackhawks streak. Good riddance! (SB Nation)

*The Phantoms won an exciting come-from-behind win against the Whale on Saturday. (Flyers Faithful)

*The Flyers need to play with more urgency if they want to turn this thing around, says Sam Carchidi and everyone else on earth. (

*Canadian fans will likely see the Heritage Classic staged more frequently, which is great. (SB Nation)
