*The Flyers are not the better team in this series, but regardless of talent level, they’ve played this series like losers. And it’s been really, really annoying. Don’t think losing Coots even moved the needle. They were just as lackluster before he went down. Here’s a recap.
*The penalties. The problem has been consistent. Taking too many penalties. [The Athletic]
*But hey, good news! Sean Couturier is a Selke Trophy finalist! And boy did he ever earn that nomination. [BSH]
*We had a lot of time to kill before last night’s game and to do so, we answered some of your questions about the state of this team. [BSH]
*There is always a lot of talk, as the playoffs kick off, about how rookies won’t fare as well as veterans because they haven’t been to the dance. Or whatever. Turns out, nope! Good players are good! Imagine it! [ProHockeyTalk]
*Anyhoo, the Flyers’ prospects currently in the CHL playoffs are making a good showing. [Sports Talk Philly]
*And finally, in case you missed it, a brand spanking new episode of Flyperbole for your listening enjoyment. [BSH]
