*First of all....BIRDS BABY!!!!!!! ..ahem. Okay, anyway, with that said...

*Folks, that was an excellent weekend of hockey from your boys. And after picking up four points against divisional rivals, the Flyers are a playoff team. For now. Subject to change. First up, Maddie’s observations from the Saturday matinee win against the Devils. [BSH]

*And then yesterday afternoon the boys came up with a very exciting overtime win against the Metro-leading Washington Capitals. RECAP!

*The Flyers have uh...they’ve been playing good hockey lately. It’s weird. Don’t really know what to do with my hands. Anyhoo, a big part of the recent success has been the top defensive pairing of Ivan Provorov and Shayne Gostisbehere. [NBC Sports Philly]

*Anyone else getting excited for the Olympics? Obviously the NHL not going sucks bigly but it really is a wide open tournament with lots of chances for relatively unknown guys to make a big name for themselves. Should be exciting! [Yahoo Sports]

*And finally, the hockey team in Seattle is definitely happening. We’ve even got potential names. Pick your favorite! [Puck Daddy]
