*The apathy is overwhelming. Recap.

*So Michal Neuvirth was back in the lineup last night, and he earned that spot by playing very well against AHL competition. Wow! [BSH]

*And Travis Konecny was back on the top line! Thank god. []

*There is a very long list of things that are going wrong for the Flyers at this point, and Charles takes a look at which ones are really bad and which ones might get better going forward. To make us feel slightly better. [The Athletic]

*So the slow starts thing? It’s been happening for a while. [BSH]

*Anyway whatever let’s look back at a time when the Flyers were the *most* fun. Remember when this was fun?! [BSH]

*Noted blowhard Glenn Healy thinks that goalies like Brian Elliott should quit their whining about the smaller equipment. [Sportsnet]

*Healy also says that NHL alumni are all-in on marijuana if science shows that it can help players. [The Score]

*The latest 31 Thoughts has some stuff about the goalie equipment too. And like 30 other things. [Sportsnet]

*Gary Bettman did the right thing and upheld Tom Wilson’s 20 game suspension with a lengthy explanation. []

*And finally, a new Flyperbole for your weekend! Go birds. [BSH]
