Timothy T. Ludwig-USA TODAY Sports

* Or something like that. And on that note, the Flyers have lost three in a row and that stinks so hey let's beat the Buffalo Sabres tonight at 7:00 p.m. ET please OK?

* Until then, though: still talking about that Simmonds/McDonagh incident, are we! First, Tanner Glass says he's gonna fight ol' Wayne Train on Sunday. Have fun with that! [BSH]

* Then, there's this: "I find it difficult to believe that any reasonably thinking hockey person, Vigneault included, would suggest that the blow was suspension worthy." Fortunately, no one ever accused the New York Rangers of thinking reasonably. Thank you, Kerry Fraser: [BSH]

* The Phantoms romped last night, as Taylor Leier had his first ever hat trick: [Highland Park Hockey]

* Here are some things the Flyers have to do to stay afloat without Sean Couturier: [Flyers.com]

* Travis answered your Flyers questions in a Facebook Live video on Wednesday afternoon: [BSH]

* On Michael Del Zotto's role change this year: [Philly.com]

* A look at Radko Gudas clearing the puck on the penalty kill: [NHL Special Teams]

* Trade deadline is coming up. What's happening there? [TSN]

* Christian Ehrhoff went on waivers, because it's been too long since fanbases around the league had some decent waived veteran to thirst over: [Jewels from the Crown]

* On the Maple Leafs' long-overdue teardown, which went even further with the Dion Phaneuf trade on Tuesday: [Puck Daddy]

* Joel Quenneville got asked one question at a press conference about an overturned goal so then he got mad and left: [Second City Hockey]

* Lastly, KIMMOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO (no further comment required) [BSH]
