*That game was infuriating. In a number of ways. But, as our own Maddie Campbell pointed out, this might be for the best as it all but guarantees we won’t get the Penguins in the first round. If there is a first round at all. Because this damn team just can’t get out of its own way. RECAP!

*So we’ve only got two games left. Two games to find out how Brian Elliott is doing. If that’s going to happen, the Flyers are going to need something approaching reliability from Petr Mrazek. [Philly.com]

*On Claude Giroux, respect, and a career season no one saw coming. [The Athletic]

*The Phantoms had a very good March. Read up on how the kids have been doing heading into the AHL playoffs in this months’ Phantoms Report. [BSH]

*Speaking of the Phantoms, they signed forward Carsen Twarynski to an amateur try out. [Phantoms Hockey]

*Dave Hakstol seems to have just stopped trusting Robert Hagg, after an entire season of relying on the rookie defenseman. What’s up with this? [NBC Sports Philly]

*DGB on the ten types of games you’ll find in the waning days of the NHL season and why you’ll want to watch them. [Sportsnet]

*A group of hockey players in a very unlikely place are trying to bring ice hockey to the desert. [ESPN]

*A player playing 1,000 NHL games with a single team used be kind of rare. Not anymore. [ProHockeyTalk]

*Which current NHLers do you think are locks for the Hockey Hall of Fame? [USA Today]

*And finally, new BSH Radio! In which the praise of Claude Giroux is sung loudly from the rooftops. Or something. [BSH]
