*The Flyers are all in the Caribbean or some other warm sunny paradise and we are here, in the cold, reading links about them. What are we doing with our lives, hmm? Anyhoo, Radko Gudas, bless his heart, thinks that the Flyers still have a chance to make the playoffs now that they’ve remembered how to play hockey. []

*And really, if we want to be honest with ourselves, Radko, Carter Hart is the real reason for this bit of a turn around. But is this the worst possible time for our goalie savior to save us? [BSH]

*While we are talking about Radko, and we might as well settle on a theme here since nothing is happening this week, Maple Leafs nation is all worked up over William Nylander’s lack of production since he finally signed and joined the team. Which is hilarious, because Willie Nylander is pretty good at hockey. The Leafs need a right-handed defenseman. Radko, you’re up! [Yahoo Sports]

*Have you been wondering what John Boruk thinks of the Flyers’ goaltending performance this season? No? Well here it is anyway. [NBC Sports Philly]

*Let’s take a look around the Metro, shall we? The Flyers aren’t last anymore! Woo? [Pensburgh]

*One thing that’s great about today’s NHL is that whenever you feel bad about your team or maybe just yourself personally, the Edmonton Oilers are always there to remind you that you’re definitely not that dumb and things are most certainly not that bad. [ProHockeyTalk]

*And finally, the Calgary Flames would like you to know that hockey players are very passionate about their sticks. Thank you and good night. [Flames]
