Monday Morning Fly By: Start planning your playoff bandwagon jump.

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

Kevin Hoffman-USA TODAY Sports

*Well, much like Thursday's game against the Leafs, Saturday's game against the Bruins was a must-win if the Flyers were going to realistically make a run at a wild card spot. And like Thursday, they did not win. Recap!

*So for some reason, in the third period of a tie game that is must-win, Dave Hakstol decided to play like he had a 4 goal lead. Makes sense. [Inquirer]

*The Flyers will need to try and mentally rebound after two crushing losses. [Inquirer]

*Claude Giroux is going to do his best Chris Pronger impression to try and rally his troops. [Inquirer]

*Speaking of Giroux, and bad coaching, it'd be nice is Claude got some better matchups, particularly on the road. [CSN Philly]

*Jakub Voracek had some things to say about the NHL's stance on Olympic participation. [CSN Philly]

*And really, he's right. This league needs to, for once, think about its fans and its players and its overall exposure rather than their bottom line. It'll likely benefit them in the long run. [BSH]

*And finally, Saturday's game featured another lengthy and ridiculous offside review after a coach's challenge. If the NHL is going to insist on keeping this a part of the game, why not use available technology to make the process easier and faster? [Habs Eyes On The Prize]
