Monday Morning Fly By: Break time!

Today's open discussion thread, complete with your daily dose of Philadelphia Flyers news and notes...

NHL: Colorado Avalanche at Philadelphia Flyers Eric Hartline-USA TODAY Sports

*The Flyers are off until Thursday, and they did not end this stretch of games on a high note. First shootout game, first shootout loss. Way she goes, boys. Way she goes. RECAP!

*And somehow, we’ve plucked ten things to learn from this game that is not just “don’t score own goals” ten times. [BSH]

*But seriously, Saturday’s game was sloppy as hell. And you won’t win a lot of sloppy hockey games, folks. [NBC Sports Philly]

*Saturday’s game also featured one of the things that have really been hurting the Flyers lately: a slow start. []

*Anyhoo, on to the good stuff. Will O’Neill was sent back up to Allentown yesterday, but he got to play in an NHL game after 11 years of pro hockey and that’s pretty damn cool. []

*Robert Hagg has been throwing a lot of hits lately and oh boy is that extremely the Flyers’ shit. [Courier-Post]

*Dave Hakstol deserves every bit of criticism he gets from this fan base, but credit where it is due: the first line is a revelation. And Sean Couturier is evidence of that. []

*Michal Neuvirth came into Saturday’s game off of a very strong showing in St. Louis and a real opportunity to distance himself from Brian Elliott. He did not do this. [Yahoo Sports]
