*Giving the Devils a Bettman Point wasn't the best idea but Brayden Schenn was nearly gutted by a hockey skate and came back to win the game in overtime. That's awesome. RECAP!

*Right back at it tonight, at home, against the Montreal Canadiens. Check back for the preview.

*So....Team Canada. Does not contain any Claude Giroux. Seems foolish. [BSH] [Philly.com]

*Claude Giroux addressed the media about being left off of the roster. [Flyers]

*Rosters for both the Swedes and the Russians were also revealed yesterday. Sweden looks pretty stacked, while the Russians are kinda week on defense.

*All told, the Flyers will send five of their players to Sochi in a few weeks, meaning most of our key guys will get some much-needed rest. [Flyers]

*The Flyers are focusing inward rather than trying to play catch-up with the Division-leading Penguins. [CSN Philly]

*A look at the ten biggest Team Canada snubs. [Puck Daddy]

*The easy target on the Canada roster seems to be Chris Kunitz, who Steve Yzerman maintains absolutely belongs on his team. [ProHockeyTalk]

*Eric T. looks at the numbers to see how playing with Sidney Crosby affects Chris Kunitz's game. [SB Nation]

*Another enjoyable anecdote from Paul Stewart, about a trip he took to Montreal during his reffing days. [Hockeybuzz]

*On why the hockey world really, really needs to calm down with the outdoor games. [SBN College Hockey]

*NHL attendance numbers are beginning to surpass NBA numbers. [CSN Chicago]

*And finally, an all-snub international roster of hockey playing misfits that could challenge any team in Sochi for the gold. [PD]
