Friday Morning Fly By: One, two, three, FOUR!

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


*Four wins in a row!! We're in uncharted territory here, friends. The good: Cooter had a great game. Ditto Rosehill. The bad: Timonen went down in the third with an undisclosed injury. Here's hoping he isn't sidelined for long. We're losing one guy a game; enough already, hockey gods! Recaps:, CSN Philly,, BSH.

*So who were the winners of the incredibly boring deadline day competition? (SB Nation)

*Advanced stats: the picture book edition. Great stuff from the Habs fans. (Habs Eyes on the Prize)

*Philadelphia, home of the World's Best Hockey Fans™, is curiously far down this list of sports towns ranked by interest level. (

*The anatomy of Bryzgalov's duck from Wednesday's Habs game, about which we can all share a hearty laugh since the Flyers won the game. (Flyers Faithful)

*The Flyers will likely resign Steve Mason, who for some reason did not start last night. (CSN Philly)

*The charges against top Flyers prospect Nick Cousins have been dropped; he'll head to Glens Falls now. (BSH)

*On Sunday the league will announce the same Winter Classic that they announced last year. We'll see the jerseys, too. (SB Nation)

*Sidney Crosby is not suffering from concussion-like symptoms, says the Pittsburgh media. (Puck Daddy)

*Wondering who to root for if you want the Flyers to squeak into the playoffs (or if you want them to miss)? Bookmark this page.
