*Well, so far, so good! Game one of the Gordon era, game one of the Carter Hart era, and the boys got a win. And Hart looked good. Sure it’s just the Red Wings, but let’s enjoy this one, shall we? RECAP!

*So, we’ve had a look at Scott Gordon as head coach of the Philadelphia Flyers. But what should we expect long-term? For that we turn to our resident Phantoms experts to do a deep-dive into just who Scott Gordon is as a coach. [BSH]

*We aren’t the only ones looking though, as Katie Strang goes back through Gordon’s past NHL experience as well as his time with the Phantoms to try and gauge what we should expect. [The Athletic]

*Have you guys been checking out our Return Flight series this season? It’s been a lot of fun heading back in time to remember Flyers past. [BSH]

*On Dave Hakstol’s goalie utilization and why it contributed to the loss of his job. [BSH]
