Thursday Morning Fly By: We live, we die, we live again!

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

Eric Hartline-USA TODAY Sports

*WE LIVE TO FIGHT ANOTHER DAY!! One down. Just get one more. We keep living. RECAP!!

*Scary stuff as Scott Laughton went hard into the boards and had to be stretchered off the ice. Here's hoping he's okay. [BSH]

*The Flyers tee-shirt giveaway last night was pretty nice. [CSN Philly]

*If you do nothing else today, read Charlie's look at the Flyers' penalty kill and his take on why it's been an absolute garbage fire in this series. [BSH]

*Our ECHL affiliate, the Reading Royals, are killing it in the playoffs right now. Bright future etc. [Sons of Penn]

*Philly people are doing yeoman's work trying to make sure hockey fans realize that we are not at all like what the national media wants us to be. Not most of us, at least. [Washington Post]

*This feels relevant in light of the PEBs suspension: on physicality, finishing checks, and why those things don't actually matter. [Hockey Wilderness]

*Speaking of suspensions, the NHL is a total joke. Kris Letang was neither penalized nor faced a hearing for this insanely dirty and very clearly deliberate play. [SB Nation]

*Jaromir Jagr is so darn lovable, go Panthers. []

*One guy got tired of hearing about the Flying V, so he decided to ruin everyone's fun by proving why it's actually a terrible hockey play. [TSN]

*And finally, HAPPY BIRTHDAY GHOST you magnificent bastard! [BSH]
