NHL: Washington Capitals at Philadelphia Flyers Eric Hartline-USA TODAY Sports

*It’s game day! Get pumped for tonight’s match against the Panthers by watching Jakub Voracek deke a bunch of Washington Capitals out of their skates over and over again. It’s fun. Puck drops tonight at 7PM, GO FLYERS. [ProHockeyTalk]

*Talent and depth have fueled this team’s pretty uncharacteristically fast start. It’s a nice change. []

*Being able to roll four actually-good lines is definitely a new thing for this team, and the fourth line has been an absolute delight. Also a delight? What they’re calling themselves. [The Athletic]

*And they’re called Sean Couturier “The Answer” hahaha this team is amazing. []

*Another big change for this team is the amount of speed we’ve seen out of these guys. Think they can keep it up? [Courier-Post]

*The coaching staff has primarily been using Valteri Filppula in the power play spot vacated by Brayden Schenn. Craig takes a deep dive in to see how that’s working so far. [BSH]

*It would appear that, if nothing else, the Flyers are feeling really confident right now. And that’s a very good thing. [Courier-Post]

*Let’s check out how the kids did this weekend! [CSN Philly]

*And finally, we here at Broad Street Hockey like to keep a finger on the pulse of the fan base, so do us a favor and let us know: do you approve of the job Ron Hextall and Dave Hakstol have done? [BSH]
