*Good god, that was a roller coaster. The Flyers were very lucky to get that win last night, and they need to tighten some stuff up and quick - particularly on the back end. A win’s a win though, eh? On to Colorado. RECAP!

*Charlie has taken a very deep-dive into Travis Sanheim’s start to the season that is very, very worth your time. Get that free trial subscription for this one. [The Athletic]

*So it seems like the Flyers are taking steps forward, particularly with regard to the defense, but that is meaningless if they don’t start winning games easier than they did last night. [Courier-Post]

*Have a listen to the locker room quotes from after Saturday’s disappointing game against Vegas. [BSH]

*Travis Konecny is keeping things light, despite scoring struggles to start. There’s a lot of that, eh? Guys playing pretty well and just not scoring. That’ll change. [Courier-Post]

*Do you guys remember Eric Weinrich?? I totally forgot about him. [BSH]

*A question for the ages: who is the better player, Auston Matthews or Connor McDavid? DGB looks at the facts. [The Athletic]

*The teams that are filling the “underdog” role in the NHL these days look different from the old guard of bottom-tier teams. [ProHockeyTalk]

*Scoring has been up across the NHL these first few weeks, and it’s bee fun. But don’t expect it to last. [LA Times]

*And finally, new BSH Radio! In which we come to a very shocking conclusion about Andrew MacDonald. [BSH]
