Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports

*The fancystats from last night show that this was a game of bounces more than anything else. [Buzz On Broad]

*So you know how Matt Read hasn't been himself a lot this year? Turns out there is a reason for that. [Daily News]

*Rob Zepp started his second game in a row last night. What's that mean for Ray Emery? Spoiler alert: nothing. [BSH]

*Scott Laughton - who suffered some kind of upper body injury last night - is trying to break himself of bad habits he learned in juniors. [Courier-Post]

*A look at the state of the Flyers and on why patience is needed if we're all going to get through this. [Pattison Ave]

*Checking in with the prospects. The Phantoms are playing some pretty good hockey right now. [BSH]

*This Wells Fargo Center employee seems to enjoy his job more than you do. [Crossing Broad]

*The All-Star game captains are boring and the jerseys are ugly and this is shaping up to be not a lot of fun, if we're being honest. [BSH]
