NHL: Anaheim Ducks at Philadelphia Flyers Eric Hartline-USA TODAY Sports

*The Flyers are back on the ice tonight, up in Ottawa. And after a very scary hit on Tuesday night, it would appear that Nolan Patrick is okay. []

*But before tonight, let’s go back to Tuesday’s big pile of trash poop. Here’s ten things we learned. [BSH]

*Our pal Charlie also has ten things, but you have to pay for them because they’re super good. [The Athletic]

*So, how can the Flyers bounce back from their first real stinker of a game this season? [Flyers]

*Did we need a reminder that this team is a work in process? I think that’s something we’ve all known from game one. []

*The Flyers media team sat down to discuss what this team is so far. [Flyers]

*Know what might be the best thing about this young season? Robert Hagg. It’s hard to overstate how valuable he’s been to the team thus far. [NBC Sports Philly]

*So Michal Neuvirth has the best save percentage in the league. Stats aren’t real. [Courier-Post]

*So this is a look at what the Flyers’ defense will look like tonight when Erik Karlsson hits the ice. [ProHockeyTalk]

*It’s super fun that the Flyers are no longer considered when making a list of the league’s biggest tire fires. [ESPN]

*Speaking of tire fires, the Edmonton Oilers can’t score goals. Turns out Connor McDavid canNOT carry 20 guys on his back. [SB Nation]

*For funsies, what kind of hockey fan are you? [Wayfair Canada]

*And finally, even when the hockey is bad, Kate’s pictures are still good. [BSH]
