*Looking back to Monday's game, here are ten things we learned from the loss to the Vancouver Canucks. [BSH]

*A look at the numbers from that Canucks game shows the Flyers' depth issues were exploited by the 'Nucks. [Sons of Penn]

*Sean Couturier isn't back in the lineup yet but he is skating; here he is after morning skate addressing the media. [Flyers]

*Speaking of depth, the Flyers might have a little help in Chris Connor. [CSN Philly]

*The Flyers can't seem to score. This is a problem. [Inquirer]

*Still notably absent from the scoresheet is Jakub Voracek. Allison has some theories on why he can't seem to find the back of the net. [BSH]

*The Flyers aren't the only team struggling to score, though, and this might be symptomatic of a larger problem in the league. [CBS Sports]

*This feels relevant, given Nick Schultz's continued presence: a look at the worst decisions ever made by NHL coaches. [Puck Daddy]

*Hey you know what stinks? The Flyers defense. [BSH]

*On Chris Pronger's road to the Hall of Fame. [TSN]

*This is a pretty cool bit of insight into how a certain type of shot influences the dynamics of a breakaway. [The Score]

*It seemed for a moment that the new overtime format would lead to more penalty shots, but that hasn't really happened. [TSN]

*What even are "intangibles'? [Toronto Star]

*And finally, another great first-person account from The Players' Tribune, this time on living life on the NHL/AHL bubble. [The Players' Tribune]
