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

Kate Frese / SB Nation

* Good morning! Nice win on Saturday against the Fighting McDavids. Bring it here for your recap, photo montage, post-game reactions, and next-day observations.

* The other big news of the weekend dropped on Sunday afternoon, when it was announced that Andrew MacDonald will miss 4 to 6 weeks after blocking a shot on Saturday. Our reaction on what the Flyers may do now: [BSH]

* This news broke minutes after the Flyers dropped a big, long article about how much everyone loves Andrew MacDonald, which felt a little targeted if you ask me: []

* Who gets credit for Scott Laughton’s evident improvements this year? One name you may not know about: his old skating coach. [NBCS Philly]

* On Shayne Gostisbehere’s improvements in his own end of the ice: [CPSJ]

* Elsewhere! “In games Niemi starts the Penguins are 0-3 and have been outscored 22-6, losing games by margins of 10-1 and 7-1.” Ooooh, that’s the stuff. [ProHockeyTalk]

* Vegas is 6-1, which, I mean ... what? How? [Knights On Ice]

* DGB’s Grab Bag, featuring a very neutral and even-handed perspective on whether the Leafs get too much coverage from the media: [Vice]

* But no matter how good the Leafs are, they still can’t beat the juggernaut that is ... the Ottawa Senators, apparently: [Silver Seven]

* Finally, there was a Hockey Nerd Conference this past weekend in Rochester, and it featured a panel with BSH Radio’s own Steph Driver! You can watch that here [YouTube, autoplay warning]; you can check out any of the other talks and slide decks here [Hockey-Graphs].
