*Pens tonight. Winning would be preferable. Puck drops at 730, check back this afternoon for a preview and a sacrifice to the hockey gods.

*Yesterday afternoon's game against the Islanders? Not so great. Not really good in any measurable way, really. Recap!

*And here's an article in which those ways are measured. [Buzz On Broad]

*The biggest takeaway from that game, if the hockey media is any indication? Sean Couturier was bad because plus/minus. [ProHockeyTalk]

*But thankfully we have people with brains here who can show you why plus/minus is stupid in about five seconds. [BSH]

*Both Nick Schultz and Carlo Colaiacovo left with injuries yesterday. Who needs defensemen anyway?! [BSH]

*AHL All-Star Brandon Manning and Oliver Lauridsen have been called up as replacements. [BSH]

*Remember when Garth Snow was kind of a joke as a GM? Yeeeaaaaah.... [Daily News]

*Steve Mason is proving he's worth every penny of his recently-signed extension. [BSH]

*Looking at the Flyers' week ahead. [Daily News]

*Former Flyer Brick, New Jersey's Own Jim Dowd is doing really well. [CBS New York]

*Peter Laviolette had one of his patented behind-the-bench Hulkrages and it was really fun to watch. [On The Forecheck]

*Sometimes it's fun to make yourself feel better by reading about the Leafs. [The Globe and Mail]

*DGB wraps up the long weekend in hockey. [Grantland]

*Ryan O'Reilly trade rumors continue to fly by the Flyers don't seem to be in the mix. [ProHockeyTalk]

*And finally, it looks like the next Winter Classic will be back in Boston. Minnesota is not amused. [SB Nation]
