*It’s game day! Time to get super excited and pumped up and spend the day politely ignoring the fact that Sean Couturier might be hurt. Also, Dave juggled some lines. Go Flyers. []

*We’ve got some thoughts about all of this. [BSH]

*Charlie’s got some ideas about what the team should do if Coots is, in fact, out. [The Athletic]

*Wayne Simmonds is going to see his role increased with these new line combinations and the Flyers really need him to be better. [NBC Sports Philly]

*If Couturier is out, the Flyers’ lack of depth is going to be exposed big time. But even if he is in, that lack of depth is part of the reason we’re down in this series. [Hockeybuzz]

*There’s been a lot of conversation about the apparent lack of production from the Flyers top players. And some more conversation about the kids playing better than the vets. But what is really happening here? [BSH]

*The Flyers aren’t good enough to win, they’re rebuilding, blah blah. Best team on paper doesn’t always win. That’s why the NHL playoffs are the best. []

*Let’s take a look at what the enemy is focused on heading into tonight’s Game 4... [Pensburgh]

*This playoff format continues to be annoying, as first round rivalries give way to more predictable and less fiery later rounds. [SB Nation]

*And finally, kill some time this afternoon with this week’s episode of BSH Radio! It’s a big one, folks, and we have a lot of ideas about what this team needs to do to turn things around. [BSH]
