*Bit of an up and down weekend for us, eh Flyers fans? Friday's game was great; Mason was awesome. Yesterday there was something that resembled a hockey game but it was terrible and sucked and the Flyers need to turn it around.

*Probably the only good thing to come out of yesterday's game was Claude Giroux scoring his first of the series. Craig Berube thinks he needs to be more patient with the puck. [Inquirer]

*Giroux spoke with the media post-game. [Flyers]

*Yesterday's game was one missed chance after another. [CSN Philly]

*If you missed last night's edition of BSH Radio, check out the podcast. Good stuff here. [BSH]

*The Flyers have come back when it counts all season long. [ProHockeyTalk]

*Kevin looked at how losing Grossmann might affect Mark Streit. One assumes we won't see Hal Gill tomorrow. [BSH]

*ASF on Matt Read & Sean Couturier play this series. [Flyers]

*A full roundup of the weekend action, including the Bruins defeat of the Wings that will have them meeting the Habs in the second round. That's going to be a great series. [SB Nation]

*The nominees for the Vezina Trophy have been chosen. [NHL.com]

*The Washington Capitals have fired coach Adam Oates and will not renew GM George McPhee's contract. [SBN]

*A more in-depth look at how McPhee lost his job. [SBN]

*And finally, this is a cool story about a hockey team trying to build a fanbase in the Philippines. [Manila Bulletin]
