Wednesday Morning Fly By: The return of Scoreacek

New, comments

Today’s open discussion thread, complete with your daily dose of Philadelphia Flyers news and notes…

NHL: Montreal Canadiens at Philadelphia Flyers Eric Hartline-USA TODAY Sports

*After a rather disappointing 57 minutes Jake Voracek took the game into his own hands and scored the game tying goal AND the game winning in overtime. What a beaut. RECAP!

*Yesterday afternoon we learned that the Oskar Lindblom call-up, which is very good, is the result of a rather significant injury to Wayne Simmonds, which is less good. Simmer will be out at least two weeks. [Philly.com]

*With Simmer out for a couple of weeks and Michal Neuvirth out for the rest of the season, the Flyers have a couple of holes to fill with a couple of new bodies. Hopefully the adjustment period will be a short one. [NBC Sports Philly]

*In making the trade for Petr Mrazek, Ron Hextall made it clear that he believes this team is in a position to make a push and that he was going to get the pieces needed to give this team the best shot possible. That vote of confidence hasn’t been lost on the players. [Courier-Post]

*Charlie takes a little bit of a deeper look at what the Mrazek move reveals about Hextall for the subscribers. [The Athletic]

*Please to enjoy our latest Prospect Report, with zero Oskar Lindblom news, because our little baby’s alls grows up. [BSH]

*31 Thoughts, with a focus on what it means to be an “untouchable” player in the NHL. [Sportsnet]

*Since the NHL didn’t go to the Olympics maybe the NHL should...copy the Olympics? [Vice Sports]

*And finally, these week’s episode of BSH Radio is an absolute blast because we got to react to Ron’s moves in real time. Consider giving a listen, I think you’ll like it. [BSH]
