*...all the way to a five game win streak, baby! We’re back tonight, this time against the Very Good Tampa Bay Lightning, and here’s hoping the streak stays alive. []

*Before tonight’s game, let’s look back on win #4 with 10 things. [BSH]

*So it seems like the Flyers have figured out how to win in overtime with some regularity. That’s a good thing! [Courier-Post]

*Good news everyone: the organizations still thinks Travis Sanheim is good, despite having sent him down to the Phantoms. They just don’t think he’s as good as Brandon Manning. It’s fine. []

*Sometimes it’s fun to look at the Flyers from the other side, like this analysis of the recent win over the New Jersey Devils. [All About The Jersey]

*Has John Boruk ever had an idea that is good, or makes logical sense? No. The answer is no. Which, coincidentally, is the answer to the question “Should Mark Recchi’s number be retired in Philadelphia?” [NBC Sports Philly]

*Poor, poor Jack Eichel and poor, poor Connor McDavid. Things have to get better for these two at some point, right? [ESPN]

*And speaking of the Oilers, just when you think you have a grasp on just how bad this season is going for them, you find out nope, it’s even worse than you though. [SB Nation]

*The Skills Comp is, by far, the highlight of the All-Star festivities, but it could be better. [ESPN]

*One of the league’s best personalities (arguably the best, really) answers some All-Star weekend-related questions in his own words. [The Players’ Tribune]

*And finally, big old Zdeno Chara, feeding pigeons. By hand. You’re welcome. [Stanley Cup of Chowder]
