*Meltzer offers up a few things we may want to look at when evaluating Dave Hakstol's success as the season goes on. [Flyerdelphia]

*Claude Giroux has one of the goals of the week, because he's awesome. [ProHockeyTalk]

*The Flyers struggled to win games without Sean Couturier in the lineup and then also with him in last night. Exactly how does his presence impact the Flyers' play? [Sons of Penn]

*Kerry Fraser weighs in on whether or not the Flyers are to blame for the loss of Connor McDavid. [TSN]

*The move to 3-on-3 overtime has resulted in fewer shootouts, which is never a bad thing. [NHL.com]

*ECHLers don't often make the leap to the NHL. What makes them more likely to succeed? [Hockey Graphs]

*There will not be an expansion vote when the NHL Board of Governors meets next month. [ProHockeyTalk]

*And finally, we're nearly out of hockey things to strap a GoPro camera to, so here's what happens when you strap one to a puck. [TSN]
