NHL: Philadelphia Flyers at Columbus Blue Jackets Aaron Doster-USA TODAY Sports

*Imagine a world with defense and goaltending. Can you do it? We sure can’t. RECAP!

*Mikhail Vorobyev was a healthy scratch last night. Fair, kid’s not been great. But here’s hoping Dave doesn’t send him the Travis Sanheim route. [Courier-Post]

*The Flyers defense has been...not good. It’s a big problem. Charlie does an examination of what is going wrong. [The Athletic]

*Look back on an insanely good goal that Claude Giroux scored against the Blue Jackets five years ago. It’s so good. [BSH]

*The rise in concussions in goaltenders is forcing the NHL to take a long look at the equipment. [TSN]

*This article is super cool; Katie Strang speaks with NHL pros to learn what the “tells” are for certain situations. Really fun read. [The Athletic]

*Have a listen to the Flyers’ locker room post-game comments from Tuesday’s shootout win over the Panthers. [BSH]

*And finally, we’ve got a brand new episode of Ice Sport Radio for your Friday morning. [BSH]
