*Merry Christmas! Happy Boxing Day! And more importantly, Happy World Junior Championship day!!!! Arguably the most fun tournament of the year, the WJC kicks off today and quite a few of our future superstars will be taking place. Here’s what we’ve got to look forward to. [NBC Sports Philly]

*The Flyers found themselves in another Festivus shootout on Sunday evening against the Rangers, just like last year against the Blue Jackets, but this year something was different. And that something was Nolan Patrick’s nifty one-on-one moves. Here’s what we learned from a holiday win in extra time. [BSH]

*You may have begun to notice that Scott Gordon’s strategies as head coach so far are bringing back something we’ve been missing here in Flyersland: fun. [NBC Sports Philly]

*Robert Hagg seems to be playing well lately, no? And not just the hits. The other stuff, too. [Philly.com]

*And finally (sorry friends, not a lot of news the day after Christmas), it isn’t Christmas without P.K. Subban being an absolute delight. It’s nice to have fun, wouldn’t you say? [Yahoo Sports]
