Friday Morning Fly By: Taking the streaking into the weekend

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

*FIVE. A Five game winning streak, friends. That’s a nice little streak. JJ said last night it’s the first time they’ve won five in regulation in a row in SEVEN YEARS. That’s nuts. RECAP!!!

*Sean Couturier is absolutely having a Selke Trophy season, and here’s hoping that the people with the votes recognize that. [NBC Sports Philly]

*Speaking of Cooter, this is a really nice read about the path that has lead him to the #1C spot here in Philly. []

*So uh...between this and The Honeybees, I’m starting to think the Flyers are a bunch of adorable little marshmallows rather than big tough hockey men. []

*Evidently there’s a big movie coming out today? The People seem excited? Anyhoo here’s the latest NHL power rankings with every team as a Star Wars character. [ESPN]

*A Canucks fan won a car at the game the other day and was inordinately calm about it. [SB Nation]

*Remember yesterday we learned about how Joe Thornton is just a big sexy nerd playing Risk online with internet strangers? That was fun. How’s about some other games NHLers can use to kill their free time on the road? [SB Nation]

*And finally, while the subject may be a bit heavy for a Friday, this long read about a former NHL player who is living on the streets is worth your time. [TSN]
