Friday Morning Fly By: Insert shootout complaints here.

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


*Enough already with the comebacks. Also, shootouts. RECAP.

*Scott Hartnell played last night and addressed the media before the game about his injury. [Flyers]

*The Flyers have put themselves in a come-from-behind position way too often this season and their ability to successfully comeback is probably not sustainable. [Inquirer] [CSN Philly]

*Perhaps they could try scoring early and holding the lead? It's crazy but it just might work. [Daily News]

*Team USA's women's hockey goalie, Jessie Vetter, isn't allowed to have the constitution on her goalie mask. Stars and stripes yes, words, no. Seems arbitrary. [Puck Daddy]

*The Broad Street Hockey team is middle of the road in terms of how many naughty words we use. We can do better. [Battle of California]

*In case you missed it, our own Eric T. makes an appearance in this article about the rise of fancystats in the NHL. [Sports Illustrated]

*Paul Stewart talks penalty shots and their proper utilization. [Hockeybuzz]

*And finally, Canadian zookeepers play hockey with lions. What a delight. [PD]
