*Holy smokes they won a hockey game. With goals and everything! RECAP!

*So things are a giant mess. A big, stinky, pile of poop. A tire fire. Well, Charlie lends a little guidance to how the team, and we, the fans, should approach the rest of this season. [The Athletic]

*Bob Mackenzie had some thoughts recently about what the Flyers should be doing moving forward. [Nichols On Hockey]

*Nolan Patrick thinks this season of struggles is going to make him a better player. Any day now! []

*There’s been a lot of conversation surrounding the idea that Carter Hart might be better off playing with the Phantoms, who are not a tire fire. He’ll be fine up here, though. [NBC Sports Philly]

*Anyway, let’s talk about something good. And that something is Connor Bunnaman, who is making some waves halfway through his first season. [BSH]

*What’s the deal with Scott Gordon’s love of line-combo deception? [Courier-Post]

*Speaking of buns, on hockey butts and jeans, and why they are not a good match. [ESPN]

*So if you think you want Sergei Bobrovsky on your hockey team, first, that’s dumb, we have Carter Hart, secondly, he seems to be a bit of a diva. [The Cannon]

*The rule that punishes players for skipping the All-Star Game has a good idea at its root - that idea being that no one would go if they didn’t have to - but injuries should probably be taken into account. [Forbes]

*And finally, new BSH Radio! We’re really trying, you guys. This team is making things very difficult. [BSH]
