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

*Saturday's afternoon game against the Bruins was an absolute heartbreaker. If you weren't on the Tank Train, your heart was likely crushed. You probably spent the afternoon doing weird depressing things like crying over White Russians or watching weird music videos online. It was a bad day to be a Flyers fan. Recap.

*And then Sunday afternoon the Flyers decided that Saturday's nearly-playoff-killing loss wasn't bad enough, they were going to just totally suck in a terribly flat loss to the Devils. It's not really fun anymore. Recap.

*We learned late Saturday that the Flyers had called up Brandon Manning from Lehigh Valley, and yesterday we learned that it's because Michael Del Zotto is hurt. [BSH]

*In even more weird/bad news, Friday afternoon goalie coach Jeff Reese left the organization for reasons unknown. Luckily, Frank Seravalli found some answers. Not so luckily? It makes the team look not good. [Daily News]
