*This was kind of a fun weekend of hockey. Mostly because Ghost exists. First up was Friday's game against the Habs, which the Flyers dropped in a shootout. As is their way. RECAP! And also Charlie's morning observations.

*The Saturday night the boys rolled into Toronto and ran house. Sure it's just the Maple Leafs but hoooooboy was it fun. Recap from Goldie and 10 things from Charlie.

*One bad thing that happened Saturday is we learned Claude Giroux is day-to-day with an upper body injury. [BSH]

*Looking at the numbers from Saturday it looks like the new lines are coming together. [Sons of Penn]

*But seriously who cares about any of this let's talk about Ghost. [BSH]

*Ghost got himself a thumbs up from TSN. [TSN]

*Where does Gostisbehere rank among Flyers rookie defensemen all-time? [Flyerdelphia]

*Sam Gagner got himself a shot on the top line with Giroux out of the lineup. And he was good. [Inquirer]

*Speaking of shots, Nick Cousins continues to try to prove he's earned his shot at the NHL. [Flyers]

*Charlie takes a look at what might be behind the Flyers' recent swoon. [BSH]

*Stall Talk! with Michael Del Zotto. [Flyers]

*The Phantoms won a 5-4 thriller last night on a game-winning goal with 2.8 seconds (!) left in the game. [Highland Park Hockey]

*Even though they are total poop, Maple Leafs players from the Toronto area are proud to play for them. Which is why they're totally getting Stamkos. [The Globe & Mail]

*Looks like there won't be any ads on the World Cup jerseys because no one wants to buy them. [Puck Daddy]

*Here's something you probably wouldn't expect to see: a Habs fan arguing for trading P.K. Subban. [Habs Eyes On The Prize]

*Jaromir Jagr is now third all-time in career goals. [ProHockeyTalk]

*Five teams that should make a move at next week's deadline. [Puck Daddy]

*And three teams who should definitely be selling. [The Sports Quotient]
