*Oh sweet, sweet Eastern Time Zone hockey. You’ve been missed. It’s been far too long. We’ve got the reigning Western Conference champs the Nashville Predators tonight at the blissfully reasonable time of 8PM. Here’s what the Flyers need to do to pick up a win. [Flyers]

*If you’re a subscriber to The Athletic, Corey Pronman’s latest is a deep-dive into what scouts think of Morgan Frost’s skating abilities. Good stuff. [The Athletic]

*And even if you are not a subscriber (which you should be, it’s cool), you can still read Charlie’s very cool breakdown of advanced stats and how to use them. [The Athletic]

*Wayne Simmonds was named third star of the league this week, which is pretty dang awesome. [Inquirer]

*The Flyers acquired another goalie for the Phantoms yesterday. Which seems like bad news for Anthony Stolarz’s future. [Phantoms]

*Let’s check in on the kids, shall we? [NBC Sports Philly]

*Pascal Laberge in particular had a nice little weekend of hockey. [Sons of Penn]

*The Flyers had a pretty good start to the season so far and a big reason for that has been their third period dominance. We have conditioning to thank for that. [Courier-Post]

*It’s become clear that Samuel Morin is not making this team right now. Why, though? [NBC Sports Philly]

*And finally, let’s take a look around the league with DGB. He’s probably the best tour guide. [Sportsnet]
