*Last night’s game was the last before the home opener; we have to wait until Saturday but the boys are coming home! They played well on the road. Not great, but not a bad start. RECAP!
*One of the best surprises of these opening games has been the overall outstanding play of the fourth line. [Philly.com]
*We’ve also seen Nolan Patrick settle into things a little bit. Some hiccups, sure, but this is what you get with rookies. [NBC Sports Philly]
*Poor Samuel Morin just wants to play hockey. [Philly.com]
*Ahead of last night’s game, we took a look at how the Preds’ 2017 postseason run had some roots in Philadelphia. [BSH]
*Could the Toronto Maple Leafs turn into the Eastern Conference version of the Chicago Blackhawks? That’ll be objectively fun to watch but hoo boy that team is going to be a tall wall to climb if the Flyers hope to make it to a conference final any time soon. [The Hockey News]
*And finally on this week’s BSH Radio we spend a lot of time praising that excellent fourth line and also doing the opposite of praising Dale Weise. [BSH]
