NHL: Vegas Golden Knights at Philadelphia Flyers Eric Hartline-USA TODAY Sports

*After that nice little win on Sunday, the Flyers handed Marc-Andre Fleury his 400th career win by dropping a close one to the Golden Knights. Boo. RECAP!

*Travis Konecny has been hot fire since Dave Hakstol moved him up to the top line, and the Flyers are really going to need him to keep that up as we head into the home stretch. [The Athletic]

*You know who else has been - improbably - good over the last couple of games? Jori Lehtera. Also, Brian Elliott is skating again HOORAY! []

*Jim Jackson has some thoughts on how players like Lehtera are contributing to the team right now. [NBC Sports Philly]

*So...about those role players. The guys like Lehtera and MacDonald and Manning. Do they actually help the team, the way that Dave Hakstol seems to think they do? We try to quantify that. It’s hard, but we try, and it’s worth discussing. [BSH]

*You’ll be shocked to open our monthly prospect report and find that Morgan Frost continues to be an absolute phenom. [BSH]

*Prospect reports from The Other Guys highlight Cooper Marody’s efforts to get his team to the Big Ten tournament. [NBC Sports Philly]

*And speaking of prospects, the Flyers have signed another member of the 2017 draft class to his ELC. [BSH]

*Sean Couturier is featured as one of the players in the league who’s taken his game up a notch this season. [ESPN]
