NHL: Philadelphia Flyers at Detroit Red Wings Raj Mehta-USA TODAY Sports

*Oh good, we’ve got a game tonight. A chance to turn things around. To not turn another streak of wins into a streak of losses. Before tonight’s match against the Rangers, let’s look back at the loss to the Red Wings with the things we learned. [BSH]

*The Flyers made a big huge trade yesterday. Not really, but it’s a trade, and on the surface it seems like a good move for the team. [Flyers]

*Carter Hart has won yet another major award. Les you forget that he’s amazing. [BSH]

*One thing that could be a good thing about how insanely tight in the Metro Division is that all of the teams have essentially been in a playoff for the last several weeks, and as such are SUPER ready for the real thing. Just gotta get in. [Yahoo Sports]

*One guy who is continuing to do his part to make sure the Flyers actually do get in? Captain Claude Giroux. [Courier-Post]

*We knew this yesterday but it’s worthy of a mention, so it gets proper enjoyment: the Chicago Blackhawks have been eliminated from playoff contention. [USA Today]

*The GMs didn’t take the goalie interference review away completely, but they have elected to take it out of the hands of the on-ice refs, which should improve things a bit. [ESPN]

*The salary cap is going to take a nice little jump up next season, which is great for the Flyers, who will eventually need to sign quite a lot of young talent. [NHL Numbers]

*This is pretty cool: evidently, a lot of NHL players are taking the time to finish their college degrees. [The Washington Post]

*And finally, kill some time before tonight’s game with a new episode of Flyperbole. The boys are excited about Travis Konecny and you should join them. [BSH]
