*That game was an absolute delight. It could not have gone any better (apart from Kimmo Timonen getting hurt. Could've done without that.). On to California! RECAP!

*Ed Snider had some thoughts on the Flyers' slumping ways. [CSN Philly]

*Forty years after their Stanley Cup win, the original Bullies were honored in downtown Philadelphia Monday night. [Inquirer]

*Speculating about Brayden Schenn's next contract. [BSH]

*Paul Stewart's latest is pretty much the best thing ever. Let's just say he isn't a Mike Milbury fan. [Hockeybuzz]

*Five team stats you may find interesting (and annoying, thanks Flyers) and five individual stats you might enjoy as well.

*Former Flyer and all-around likeable player Vinny Prospal announced that he will retire after sixteen years in the league. [Puck Daddy]

*Thirty Thoughts, including trade rumors, the upcoming first trade deadline, and Olympic concerns. [CBC]

*How the Olympic break works for NHL players. [Globe and Mail]

*The New Jersey Devils continue to insist on playing Martin Brodeur to their own detriment. Ha. [Backhand Shelf]

*Ryan Miller's Olympic goalie mask has been revealed. [PD]

*DGB's impression of the Stadium Series game at Dodger Stadium and a look at how successful the remaining outdoor games might be.

*And finally, the story of Joe Rogers; he was born with only one hand, but that didn't stop him from becoming the goaltender for the Fighting Irish. [SBN]
