*Okay, one game down. Who made it through to the final horn? RECAP!

*So starting the season on the road sucks, particularly when the road is many time zones away, but if you recall, the Flyers were total trash on the road last season. We’ll get to know early if that’s improved. [CSN Philly]

*As per long-standing tradition, your friends here at Broad Street Hockey have placed our bets on what the Flyers will do this season. First up, the over/unders on individual performances. [BSH]

*We also wagered on how the team will perform as a whole. These are shockingly optimistic, folks. [BSH]

*The Flyers and Sharks have some interesting history you may not know about. It involves a pick swap. [BSH]

*We’ve got season previews out the ass over here, but this one feels particularly relevant for us: every NHL team is actually bad. [Deadspin]

*Puck Daddy has the Flyers on the outside of the playoff bubble looking in. Jerks. [Puck Daddy]

*Let’s go team by team and see what we should expect this season. []

*Friedman’s always amazing 30-ish Thoughts this week has a little nugget about our Captain contained within. [Sportsnet]

*With a new season comes new narratives. Here’s the storylines to watch. [Fox Sports]

*Finally, the NHL is a young man’s game now, and that has made the game better. Which is why it’s fantastic that our coach likes his dynamic young talent to watch games from the press box. On to LA; let’s go Flyers! [Washington Post]
