NHL: Philadelphia Flyers at Dallas Stars Tim Heitman-USA TODAY Sports

*Were you awake? Were the Flyers awake? Who cares! Two points! RECAP.

*You may have noticed this, but Michal Neuvirth is back! Or, well, uh, he was back. This was written before he got hurt mid-game last night. [BSH]

*Depending on how serious that injury is, Alex Lyon may be rejoining Anthony Stolarz for the Phantoms’ playoff push. Stolarz is fighting for his future with this organization after missing much of the year with knee injuries. [Courier-Post]

*Okay let’s look all the way back at Tuesday night’s game with five things we learned. [BSH]

*Nicolas Aube-Kubel is a name we started to hear a bunch this year as the Phantoms marched their way into the post season. But he never made the jump up to the Flyers, so it’ll be interesting to see what he looks like in camp next fall. [Courier-Post]

*So, do you ever feel like practically every single Flyers game goes to overtime? Well, it’s not you. It’s them. [BSH]

*31 Thoughts, on bad GMs, World Championships, and possible future trades. [Sportsnet]

*Did you know we are living in the golden age of NHL iron man streaks? Well it’s true. We are. [ESPN]

*What is a team to do when they tank, pick high, and still can’t buy a win? Looking at you, Buffalo. [Associated Press]

*The NHL is, allegedly, very committed to cutting down its environmental impact. Which is, theoretically, a good thing. [USA Today]

*And finally, ranking this year’s Stanley Cup contenders. Prematurely. Because why not. [Puck Daddy]
