*Game three tonight. Big game. Huuuuuge game. Ray Emery will be in net again; check back later today for some questions with Blueshirt Banter and a preview of the game.

*Steve Mason says that Emery's competent play is giving him time to fully recover. [Flyers]

*We always knew that goaltending would be a big story this series. Don't think we knew that this would be the story, though. [BSH]

*Craig Berube did well to make the necessary adjustments between games one and two to give the Flyers a better chance to succeed. [Daily News]

*Kurt looked at how the Flyers and Rangers matched lines and pairings in game two. [BSH]

*Meltzer on the Flyers' continued resiliency. [Hockeybuzz]

*ASF on the Flyers' "better than advertised" defense. [Flyers]

*Much has been (rightly) made of the no-goal call in Sunday night's Habs-Bolts game. The call perfectly illustrates why it is time to close the loophole in the NHL's goalie interference rules. [Puck Daddy]

*Last night Matt Cooke reminded the world that he's Matt Cooke and Matt Cooke is a scumbag. [ProHockeyTalk]

*Our own Dr. Eric T. gets some love in this article on the art of hockey analytics. [Winnipeg Free Press]

*In light of the Chicago Blackhawks/David Backes incident, why on-ice chirping is so frequent among players. [Backhand Shelf]
