*Two days in your weekend, two Flyers games for you to enjoy. Well, watch. I have no idea if you enjoyed them. The first of the two didn’t go well, and here’s what we learned from Carter Hart’s very first L. [BSH]

*But last night’s game was a different story with the boys picking up a shootout win over the Rangers in another Festivus shootout that ended better than last year’s. RECAP!

*Hart wasn’t the reason for the loss, though, and the kid still looks good. And he’s giving Chaz a little leeway when it comes to making a trade for a goalie ASAP. [Philly.com]

*In fact, the boost we’ve gotten from Hart is really just what the Flyers needed to start steering the ship in the right direction. [ProHockeyTalk]

*But with Sergei Bobrovsky coming in and shutting the Flyers down on Saturday afternoon, the question of if the Flyers are good enough in net still remains [NBC Sports Philly]

*So you may have noticed that Scott Gordon likes to have a little fun with his lineups before the team actually hits the ice. [BSH]

*Speaking of Scott Gordon, he’s known for about a decade that Claude Giroux is a very special player. [NBC Sports Philly]

*Dan Carcillo is doing a lot of important work since his retirement and seems to be aiming to use his legacy to protect his fellow hockey players. [SB Nation]

*And finally, Carter Hart is a chatty young man, and we’ve got the audio here for your listening pleasure. Merry Christmas, everyone! [BSH]
