NHL: Philadelphia Flyers at Florida Panthers Robert Mayer-USA TODAY Sports

*Tonight’s big huge important game against the Pittsburgh Penguins is one of these insufferable 8pm Rivalry games on the national broadcast, but you’ll see a familiar face on tonight’s broadcast team: Philadelphia Eagle Mychal Kendricks. The Eagles won the Super Bowl, in case you forgot. []

*Dave is making some moves, lineup-wise, ahead of tonight’s game with Wayne Simmonds coming back into the lineup. Let’s see who’s earned a move up or down in the last week with Charlie’s stock report. [The Athletic]

*You read that correctly: the Wayne Train is back! [NBC Sports Philly]

*Big news yesterday was the Flyers re-signing Phantoms defenseman T.J. Brennan to a multi-year contract extension. [Flyers]

*Ron Hextall became GM of the Flyers in 2014. Can you believe it’s been so long already? 2014 ended up being a big year for new GMs in the NHL, and DGB looks at Hexy’s cohorts to see who’s done the best job thus far. [Sportsnet]

*You’ll be happy to learn that Andrew MacDonald no longer appears on lists of the worst contracts in the NHL. Time truly does heal all wounds. [ESPN]

*And finally, the best way to kill time before a late puck-drop: a new episode of BSH Radio! [BSH]
