*The hits just keep on coming! Looks like the injury that took Michael Raffl out on Monday was a bad one; we’ll be without his services for 4-6 weeks. Will be interesting to see who replaces him (it will 100% be Corban Knight). [Flyers]

*So, what might Ron Hextall do with this opening? [BSH]

*It would appear that Ron’s patience is beginning to run thin. [Courier-Post]

*Dave Hakstol was pretty forthright with his comments after Monday’s loss. Is this refreshing or infuriating? Or both? [NBC Sports Philly]

*Speaking of, here’s ten things we learned from another poor effort on home ice. [BSH]

*Claude Giroux had himself a relatively solid game, but a glaring mistake sticks out upon further review. [BSH]

*If you’re a subscriber, Charlie’s look at the benching of Mikhail Vorobyev is worth a read. [The Athletic]

*Have you been wondering what John Boruk thinks of the Flyers top line? No? Well here it is anyway. [NBC Sports Philly]

*There are a few pesky issues that have been hanging around since just about the very start of the Dave Hakstol era, slow starts among them. When does the front office start to look at the coach? [Philly.com]

*And finally...the Philadelphia Flyers. Who even are they? [BSH]
