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

Kate Frese

*The Flyers, energized by bombogenisis, absolutely destroyed the Islanders last night. This team is so weird. Sometimes it is fun. RECAP!

*Big news yesterday was the Flyers recalling Tyrell Goulbourne ahead of last night’s game. Unbelievably, our own Bill Matz predicted this would happen literally an hour before it actually did. We’re good here, folks. [BSH]

*And after all the fuss, the kid couldn’t even get to Philly because of the dang snow. Plow your roads, Pennsylvania!! [BSH]

*The Flyers are hoping Goulbourne will provide a spark of energy whenever he actually joins the team. [Philly.com]

*You can check out the full version of this week’s episode of BSH Radio, which is actually quite good. As we do. [BSH]

*If you’re looking for something to do on a lovely winter Saturday morning, free public ice skating is being offered in Philly thanks to the Ed Snider Youth Hockey Foundation. [Philly.com]

*A couple of the Phantoms’ most remarkable players have been named to this season’s AHL All-Star Classic. [Sports Talk Philly]

*The fine folks at Hockey Graphs always do some interesting stuff, and this piece on how goal scorers score goals is no different. Excellent Friday morning reading. [Hockey Graphs]

*We’ve reached the medal round in the World Junior Championship and the Americans will not be competing for gold. [Habs Eyes On The Prize]

*Ron has some thoughts on how the Flyers’ prospects have performed at the tournament. [NBC Sports Philly]

*And finally, NAZEM KADRI RIPPED JOE THORNTON’S BEARD OUT OF HIS FACE. Horrors. [SB Nation]
