*Well, friends. Here we are. The brink is before us. Considering how they’ve looked over the last couple of games, it’ll be interesting to see what this team does with their backs against the wall. Find your balls, boys. [NBC Sports Philly]

*Dave is making lineup changes again, and, in a bit of good news, Sean Couturier will be traveling with the team and will be a game-time decision tonight. [Philly.com]

*We learned some things from Wednesday’s game, and let’s hope the Flyers did as well. [BSH]

*Tonight would be a very good night for Claude Giroux to get going. Considering the lines Hakstol ran in practice today, I’m not sure that’ll happen without Couturier in the lineup. [Philly.com]

*Over the course of this series there’s been a lot of talk about the goaltending. Has it been great? Nope. Not even close. But if you’re looking at goalies in a series where the team can’t buy a goal you might want to adjust that focus. [Philly.com]

*But hey, the Phantoms start their playoff push tonight and surely they will do better than the Flyers have done. We’ve got a preview of their first round series against the Baby Bruins. [BSH]

*Eric Lindros continues to lead the way in the push to make the league take concussion prevention more seriously. [Philly.com]

*And finally, we could all use a bit of fun tonight, wouldn’t you say? Mic’d up players are always fun. Let’s go Flyers. [Puck Daddy]
