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

*The Philadelphia Flyers: Getting At Least A Point Until The Sun Devours The Earth. Has a nice ring to it, doesn’t it? RECAP.

*Big news! Claude Giroux is the Flyers’ nominee for the Bill Masterton Trophy. He won’t win it, because Brian Boyle, but he’s certainly deserving of the honor of the nomination. [BSH]

*The Flyers also signed goalie Felix Sandstrom to his ELC yesterday, which is exciting. [Flyers]

*Someone has suggested that the Flyers may end up being a threat in the playoffs. The Flyers. A threat. Hmm. [Philly Voice]

*Do you like hockey? Probably, since you’re here. Do you like the Flyers, specifically? Even more likely. Do you like network situation comedies? Maybe! If so, you’re in luck, as there is a Flyers-themed episode of a show called The Goldbergs airing on your television tonight. []

*Our old friend Hal Gill shared some stories from his NHL career and they’re all gems. You’ll enjoy this. [The Players’ Tribune]

*The league officially approved the change to the goalie interference that will take the review process from the ice to the war room. Effective immediately. [Sportsnet]
