*No win, no goals, and no Radko Gudas. This is fine. This is all fine. Everything is fine. RECAP.

*So what’s awesome is Ivan Provorov is becoming a star right before our very eyes. []

*And so is Sean Couturier. All it took was some real linemates and he’s off and running. [The Hockey News]

*How’d the Flyers look during the first month of the season by the numbers? Well, not awful. So that’s something. [BSH]

*Danick Martel is becoming a real star up in Allentown. As he should be. [The Morning Call]

*Recently, the Flyers put out a nice little puff piece on Andrew MacDonald. They also did some heavy defense of him to Elliotte Friedman, which he details in his latest 31 Thoughts. If you haven’t accepted that he’s here to stay, you might want to do that now. [Sportsnet]

*Anyhoo let’s all have a hearty laugh at the misfortunes of the Pittsburgh Penguins. [ESPN]

*Both Team USA and Team Canada revealed their 2018 Olympics jerseys yesterday. And uh....yiiiiiikes. [Stanley Cup of Chowder]

*I am issuing you a challenge: read this interview with Joe Thornton and then tell me he is NOT one of your favorite players ever. [ESPN]

*And finally, new BSH Radio! Halloween edition! With bonus stats debate. It’s a party. [BSH]
