Friday Morning Fly By: Just close your eyes and shoot, baby

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

NHL: Philadelphia Flyers at Boston Bruins Bob DeChiara-USA TODAY Sports

*Folks, if you can’t win a game in which Jori Lehtera scores a shorthanded goal, well... get your shit together, to be frank. RECAP!

*So Dave Hakstol finally gave Alex Lyon a start last night. Perhaps this mean he will manage his goalies better going forward? []

*The Flyers are the only team in the league currently in a playoff spot that has a losing record at home. Why do the Flyers struggle so much in Philly? []

*To take things back to the last home game really quickly, a lot of things went wrong. As often is the case in a loss. But what was glaringly obvious was that the Flyers’ defensive depth is a liability against good teams. [BSH]

*Jordan Weal was hoping getting back with familiar linemates would reignite his scoring. Instead, he found himself scratched for Matt Read. C’est la vie. []

*And finally, 31 Thoughts, a number of which focus on the things going on down in Raleigh, which are pretty juicy. [Sportsnet]
