NHL: Stanley Cup Playoffs-Philadelphia Flyers at Pittsburgh Penguins Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

*There are plenty of reasons that the Flyers’ season is over, but the lack of depth —scoring and otherwise— is perhaps the biggest. [BSH]

*Jake Voracek says the Flyers need to win “at least a playoff series next year,” though the teams’ youth and resilience did shine through this season. [Courier-Post]

*Speaking of resilience, the laundry list of injury issues for Wayne Simmonds this season was revealed at cleanup day, which explains a lot of what happened with the Flyers’ power forward this year. [Courier-Post]

*Charlie’s postmortem goes into the good, the bad, and the ugly of the 2017-18 Flyers. And then what could/should be on the horizon for the Orange and Black. [The Athletic]

*Who doesn’t love a glance at the Flyers’ goaltending situation? Nobody, that’s who. [NBCSP]

*The NHL has announced the finalists for the Jack Adams Trophy and in a total shocker, Flyers coach Dave Hakstol is not among the finalists. [NHL]

*The NHL still kind of has a head shot problem...from the hits themselves, to the way punishment is doled out, and how that punishment is justified. [Sportsnet]

*The Caps face the Penguins (again) in the second round, so here’s a look at just how painful those memories have been for the DC hockey club against their nemesis. [ESPN]
