* The Flyers played well and won! For the third game in a row! Wow! Recap!

* Thing that did not happen in this game: Craig Berube and Dustin Byfuglien fighting. Though I think we all know how that would've ended up. [BSH]

* But enough about the game whatever who cares KIMMO MAY BE BACK SOON?!?!?!?!? Hextall is denying it but it sure is looking that way. [BSH]

* Lots of great stat-compiling work here on transitions between zones for the Flyers: [Pattison Avenue]

* Not as great a night last night for the Phantoms, who lost to Albany (again). [BSH]

* The big news in hockey yesterday actually came from the AHL, where it was officially announced that next year we'll see an AHL West division: [SBN]

* The other big news in hockey yesterday: Martin Brodeur officially retired ... as a member of the St. Louis Blues. Still weird. He will join their front office for the remainder of the season as a senior adviser to Doug Armstrong: [NHL.com]

* As such, let's remember Martin Brodeur's seven best games as a member of the St. Louis Blues: [Sporting News]

* Prospect update! [BSH]

* On bad contracts that are slightly less bad than other bad contracts, and Alex Semin: [TSN]

* Jason Spezza returned to Ottawa for the first time since being traded last summer and boy did the Ottawa Sun have something to say about it: [Puck Daddy]

* DGB recapping the NHL's current set of goalie controversies: [Grantland]

* Here's a guy in the Swedish leagues scoring a nice OT winner and doing the moonwalk: [TheScore]

* Finally (and, err, I don't know, probably NSFW?), something rather odd happened during last night's Predators broadcast... [SBN]
