*What’s better than the Flyers’ top line? Nothing! Nothing at all! RECAP.

*So even after that long break, we didn’t see Nolan Patrick return last night. Glad to see they aren’t rushing the kid. []

*Of course, because we can’t resist, there’s talk of Patrick maybe going back up to Brandon. Which is just madness. [Courier-Post]

*Sean Couturier continues to get the attention he deserves for kicking all of the butts so far this season. [Flyers]

*This very in-depth breakdown of Brian Elliott’s rather...unconventional goaltending style is absolutely worth the subscription. [The Athletic]

*The Blackhawks are bad and stupid, but they invited the guy from Philly who was their emergency backup that time back to the game last night, which is very cool. [Chicago Sun-Times]

*Perhaps you’ve heard, but Danick Martel can’t stop scoring goals. Let’s look at all 14 of them! [Sons of Penn]

*There are lots of predictions made during preseason. A lot of them end up being way off. [ESPN]

*These new strict faceoff rules are leading to a lot of weird things. [ProHockeyTalk]

*In the NBA, teams regularly rest their big stars to keep them healthy for the season. Should the NHL try this approach? [Toronto Sun]

*The Tampa Bay Lightning: maybe actually good. [TSN]

*And finally, you’ve seen some weird pre-game rituals before but this one is absolutely nutty. [SB Nation]
