Today’s open discussion thread, complete with your daily dose of Philadelphia Flyers news and notes…

NHL: Montreal Canadiens at Philadelphia Flyers Eric Hartline-USA TODAY Sports

*You may have heard, but the Alex Lyon and the Phantoms had themselves a very impressive Wednesday night. Here’s what we learned. [BSH]

*So we know that Alex Lyon’s 94 saves was goddamned incredible, but where will in rank in the annals of history? [ProHockeyTalk]

*Lyon might’ve blacked out at some point, which to be honest is completely understandable. []

*When a game goes to five OTs, the numbers start to get pretty wild. Here are five of the craziest stats from Wednesday night/Thursday morning’s win. [NBC Sports Philly]

*The community draft rankings continue with big ol’ power forward Brady Tkachuk. [BSH]

*We’re also continuing our post-season player grades, looking at the guys who were perfectly average. [BSH]

*Our old pal Pierre-Edouard Bellemare is being heralding as the “glue guy” for the Vegas Golden Knights, in case you forgot why he got so much ice time on a Dave Hakstol-coached team. [The Athletic]

*Speaking of Dave, it kind of does seem like Ron’s decision to take a guy from college has ushered in a whole new era of coach-picking. [Denver Post]

*And finally, we’ve got a brand new episode of Flyperbole that is, quite frankly, amazing. Enjoy. [BSH]
