Eric Hartline-USA TODAY Sports

*We have so little, let's enjoy this one. RECAP!

*And we are back at it tonight against the Devils; hopefully just as good as last night! Puck drops at 7PM, thank god. Go team!

*What's going on with the Flyers' penalty kill? [BSH]

*So we've been talking about this for pretty much this entire season, non-stop, but really: is the problem them team or is the problem the coaching? (note: the answer is actually both). [Sports Talk Philly]

*On the coaching side of things, Dave Hakstol's undeniable and mind-boggling obsession with Chris VandeVelde. [Sons of Penn]

*Looks like the Flyers are going to try some more NCAA talent. Wouldn't be a bad thing, probably. [Inquirer]

*So one of these NCAA free agent targets went to Union College. Know who else went there?? Shayne Gostisbehere that's who. [Inquirer]

*The US Women's Hockey team has decided to boycott the World Championship because of a compensation dispute. They're disputing the fact that they pretty much aren't compensated at all, which is pretty gross. [ESPN]

*Looks like we are going to have a NYC Winter Classic next year. [Newsday]

*And finally, a Flyers fan has tattooed an Ilya Bryzgalov quote onto his body, because why not: an oral history. [Puck Daddy]
