Monday Morning Fly By: Bummer City, PA

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

NHL: Philadelphia Flyers at Pittsburgh Penguins Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

*Sigh. Yesterday was rough, right? We’re not ready to talk about it just yet. Let’s have a look at Maddie’s observations from the Flyers’ win over the Rangers first. Those were much nicer results. [BSH]

*But I guess we have to talk about yesterday eventually. The Flyers lost to the Penguins in overtime again. It was still a pretty wild ride, though. And you can relive it here. [BSH]

*It’s good news elsewhere, pals! Carter Hart’s been having a pretty stellar season up in Everett, and he may well be capping off his Junior career with the Silvertips’ playoff run. [Courier Post]

*Speaking of playoff, the Flyers are getting pretty close to those. Who they’d face in the first round remains up in the air, but let’s take a dip into some of those potential match-ups. []

*The Flyers have another prospect playing playoff hockey! With OSU beating Denver last night and advancing to the Frozen Four, we have another chance to watch some more of Tanner Laczynski (and spoiler: he’s doing very well!). [The Lantern]

*And as our last bit of prospects in playoffs news: yep, Morgan Frost is still very good. [CBS Sports]

*Need even more laughs in your life? Down Goes Brown has you covered, with his three stars of comedy, and more, in his weekly grab bag. [Vice]

*In this week’s weird news: there was almost a fist fight at Jets practice. Blake Wheeler’s taking responsibility, and it sure is... something [Sportsnet]

*Oh wow, Connor McDavid took the league lead in scoring on Saturday, and his team’s still going to miss the playoffs. Someone please rescue that poor boy. [TSN]
