*Some thoughts on the defeat from Maddie. [BSH]

*Kate’s photos from another killer day at the rink. [BSH]

*Is it 5-on-5 play that is dragging the Flyers down during this losing streak? The numbers don’t necessarily indicate that. [BSH]

*Is it the penalty kill? Sure hasn’t been helping the team over the last few weeks...or last few seasons. [BSH]

*I want to say yes, but who, the fuck, actually knows? []

*ONE POSITIVE: Shayne Gostisbehere, like we already knew, is a Pretty Cool Guy! [BSH]

*ANOTHER POSITIVE: Nolan Patrick isn’t overwhelmed early in his NHL career! []
