*As the Phantoms start the playoffs we are going to see Alex Lyon between the pipes. Should be fun to get a look at what the kid brings to the table. [Highland Park Hockey]

*Lyon has learned a lot during his rookie year. [The Morning Call]

*Guess who else we are going to get a look at (hopefully)?! Phil Myers! The team announced yesterday that he’ll be joining them for the ‘yoffs. [BSH]

*Scott Laughton is ready to make some noise in the AHL playoffs since the Flyers don’t seem to want him in the NHL. [Inquirer]

*Not one, not two, not three, but FOUR Flyers will be joining Team Canada at Worlds, woo! [Flyers]

*Man, Flyers fans are at it again, acting like assholes at sporting events. [BSH]

*So torn between what is best about this story: the fact that Jack Eichel is acting a little like a bratty tool OR the fact that he’s absolutely right and Dan Bylsma SUCKS and finally someone is saying it. [Puck Daddy]

*....or maybe not. [TSN]

*Team USA has been absolute shit at most of the recent big international tournaments. Why do they struggle so much to build a winner? [ESPN]

*And finally, since some of your bandwagon teams may be on their ways out, DGB brings us the five kinds of playoff losses and how you should react to them. [The Hockey News]
