*The Flyers dropped the game AND gave up first place in the Metro to the Pens last night and they’re right back at it tonight against the stupid Bruins. Gird your loins. Things are getting serious around here. RECAP!

*Mary Clarke spoke with the Flyers ahead of last night’s game about the storied rivalry with the Penguins. [The Athletic]

*The NHLPA has released the results of their yearly players’ poll. There are some interesting results; this is a pretty fun thing to look through. [NHLPA]

*And if you don’t feel like reading a lot and forming your own opinions, the fine folks at Yahoo have distilled the entire poll into what they consider the most interesting results. [Puck Daddy]

*This is a cool read: a deep dive into the differences between actual salary and cap hit and how all of that translates into what an NHL player actually takes home. [Hockey Graphs]

*And finally, new episode of Flyperbole! Just what you need on a Thursday. Enjoy it. [BSH]
