*TOMORROW IS THE DAY! The boys are finally at home and we’re going to open up the season with a win, you heard it here first. If you’re headed to the game tomorrow evening, stop by and say hi to some of the BSH crew at our fun little tailgate party! [BSH]

*It’s been a long stretch between the last game and this next one, and Dave Hakstol has used this down time to try and learn from his mistakes. Which seems good. []

*After being horrendous on the road for really all of last season, we should find a lot of hopefulness in the Flyers’ 2-2 start on the road this year. [Courier-Post]

*Meltzer has some good insight on the Samuel Morin situation that’s worth a read. [Hockeybuzz]

*Evidently Matt Read was pretty shocked to be sent down, but it hanging in. [The Morning Call]

*Smaller defensemen like Shayne Gostisbehere are finally getting some respect in the NHL, thanks in part to guys like Erik Karlsson. [The Hockey News]

*Our old pal Mark Streit has been waived by the Montreal Canadiens, which might spell the end of the road for him. [Habs Eyes On The Prize]

*It used to be that the KHL is where NHL careers went to die, but now, thanks to the league’s refusal to go to the Olympics, it is becoming a springboard to national teams. [Reuters]

*And finally, Ed Snider will be honored with a statue in the sports complex before the game against the Predators on October 19. []
