Thursday Morning Fly By: Allons-y the Flyers!

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

James Guillory-USA TODAY Sports

*The Habs are in town tonight, and good news: there is literally no way the Flyers can possibly be as bad as they were on Tuesday. Positivity woo! Puck drops at 7 which is also good go Flyers.

*Speaking of that Tuesday "game", Charlie takes one for the team and somehow comes up with ten things to learn from an absolute tire fire of a sports match. [BSH]

*Oh good we're scratching Ghost again, that'll fix it. [Courier-Post]

*Let's take a look at the Metro as a whole, which is still too damn good to do the Flyers any favors. [Canes Country]

*It's not all bad, the kids are still all right. German Rubtsov has a point streak going that's fun. [Sons of Penn]

*Steve Mason will wear some new gear for the Stadium Series game this month and it's all pretty cool looking. [Sons of Penn]

*Big news around the league yesterday was the Blues firing Ken Hitchcock. [ProHockeyTalk]

*Elliotte Friedman dropped his latest 30 Thoughts, which are always a great read. [Sportsnet]

*DGB on the five best team/position combos in NHL history. Random thing to rank but it's good anyway to click away. [The Hockey News]

*And finally, Ilya Bryzgalov will bring joy to your otherwise empty and miserable life. [Puck Daddy]
