*Well, a 1-1 start on a west coast road trip isn’t bad. On to Anaheim! RECAP!

*Let’s look back at the opener with all the things we should’ve taken away from the big win in San Jose. [BSH]

*And ten observations from the folks at the newspaper. [Inquirer]

*And if you’ve missed Charlie’s 10 things column from his time at BSH, good news: his first one of the season over at The Athletic is a freebie. Enjoy. [The Athletic]

*Did you know Wayne Simmonds’ hat trick was the first opening night hatty in team history? That’s pretty cool. [Sons of Penn]

*Hey, the Phantoms’ season kicks off this weekend! Here are five players to watch up in Allentown this season. [The Morning Call]

*So one thing that I think sometimes happens with fans is that when the team is winning games, criticism of front office decisions goes out the window and is met with derision. The team won Wednesday night, and it was awesome. But that doesn’t mean Hakstol should be off the hook. [BSH]

*But anyhoo fun stuff: Steph and Bill were on TV again! [BSH]

*Hmm this article on the Metro Division’s top ten left wings seems to have left off the top left wing in the Metro Division. [Japers’ Rink]

*It’s pretty cool when hockey players get to play for the team they rooted for as kids. Let’s hear from Kevin Shattenkirk about how awesome it feels. [The Players’ Tribune]

*And finally, let’s all hope that the Flyers don’t see a lot of overtime this season, because it is absolutely going to kill us all. [Science Mag]
