New, comments

Today's open discussion thread, complete with your daily dose of Philadelphia Flyers news and notes...

Bruce Fedyck-USA TODAY Sports

*The Flyers are back at home tonight woo! The Avalanche slide into town (get it?!) tonight, puck drops at 7PM.

*The Flyers might be messy in a lot of places but one place they are decidedly not messy is in net. [Flyers]

*Don't let that fool you into thinking there is some kind of goalie controversy, though. The Flyers are clear that Steve Mason is the number one guy. [Courier-Post]

*And here are Mason, Neuvirth, and Dave Hakstol commenting on how great it is to have two good goalies. [Flyers]

*Speaking of, on Dave Hakstol and what it means to tank. [Pattison Ave]

*Last night Chris Pronger was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame; this morning, read about how he influenced Claude Giroux during his time as a Flyer. [CSN Philly]

*Prospect Radel Fazleev is having himself a pretty good year so far in Cal-gree. [CSN Philly]

*There's been a lot of talk lately about the lack of scoring in the NHL these days. Maybe the league needs to stop going out of its way to disallow goals? [Habs Eyes On The Prize]

*Once again, Gary Bettman wants you to know his league is in no rush to expand. [Toronto Sun]

*And finally, the praise continues to pour in for the NHL's new overtime format. [SB Nation]
