Eric Hartline-USA TODAY Sports

*The Flyers won the home opener! And they did it with good defense! What is even happening?! RECAP!

*And here's a nice rundown of the stats for last night's game, if you're into that kind of thing. [Sons of Penn]

*Biggest news yesterday was Steve Mason having to miss an unknown number of games due to a family issue. Here's hoping everything is okay for him. [BSH]

*Ed Snider also missed last night's home opener, which is rare for the Flyers' chairman. [TSN]

*Let's look back to Saturday's tire fire in Sunrise to break down what went wrong on one of the many Panthers' goals against. [Pattison Ave]

*The newly instituted coach's challenge may make it harder for coaches to keep fresh legs on the ice. [New York Post]

*With all the hype and expectations surrounding Connor McDavid, what should we really expect to see in his rookie season? [NHL Numbers]

*And finally (finally already? Blame Canadian Thanksgiving yesterday was a snoozefest), Jack Eichel is kind of good at hockey. [Puck Daddy]
