*Well, it’s do or die for the kids up in Allentown. Big game tonight and you can watch it! [Flyers]

*Before tonight’s Game 4 let’s look back at Game 3, which was, to be frank, a complete and total cluster. But we learned some stuff. [BSH]

*I hate to even link this because of the sheer absurdity of it, but it’ll be a fun thing for all of you to make fun of on a Friday: are Travis Sanheim and Phil Myers not NHL ready because the Phantoms aren’t making the Calder Cup Final? [NBC Sports Philly]

*Charlie on whom the Flyers might target in free agency to improve their painfully bad penalty kill. [The Athletic]

*Looks like Samuel Morin won’t be an option for the Flyers at camp this season. Yikes. [Courier-Post]

*So we’ve got a Stanley Cup Final set! Good on the Caps, if you ask me. I’m not sure how you can not like Alexander Ovechkin. [ESPN]

*Speaking of Ovie, he did not shy away from touching the Prince of Wales Trophy. Did you know that it was the Flyers that started that whole “don’t touch the Trophy!!!” thing? Let’s see if it really is bad luck. [On The Forecheck]

*Obviously the Caps will be meeting the Godlen Knights, and they’ve still got the odds-on favorite to win the Conn Smythe. [ProHockeyTalk]

*And finally, the best thing to come out of the success story that is the Vegas Golden Knights is that is destroys a lot of hockey’s long-help conventional wisdoms. Learn stuff, Hockey Men! [Sportsnet]
