*So the Flyers played some exciting hockey Saturday, but only because they dug themselves a big hole that was four goals deep, which they dug themselves out of after deciding to actually play some good hockey with ten minutes left. Only to lose in OT. But it was a fun ten minutes, eh? RECAP!

*It’s been typical for the Flyers to crumble in the face of even the tiniest bit of adversity, and this time they did not!! That’s a good thing, folks! [NBC Sports Philly]

*And there was some other good stuff, too! Claude Giroux continues to break records and that’s pretty cool. [Philly.com]

*Have you been wondering what John Boruk thinks of Alex Lyon’s influence on Carter Hart? No? Well here it is anyway. [NBC Sports Philly]

*Remember when teams dreaded playing at The Farg because of the hostile atmosphere? No? Well I swear, it was a thing. Not anymore, though. And that’s on the team, sure. But it’s on us too. [NBC Sports Philly]

*Yeah, because this team just cannot win at home. [Philly.com]

*Were we foolish to expect Ron Hextall to show the same kind of passion and emotion as a GM that he did as a player? Yes. Yes we were. [Philly.com]

*And finally, the Flyers’ goalie situation continues to be a complete and total mess. So what’s next? [BSH]
