*Five. Five losses in a row. Quite an accomplishment! At this point, a late-game comeback just adds to the frustration and anger. Recap!

*A lot of things have contributed to the Flyers ending up in their current state of disarray. Many, many things. So many things. Anyhoo, here are five of the major ones. [NBC Sports Philly]

*The Flyers themselves, however, don’t seem to have a lot of answers to the “what the hell is going on here” question. [Courier-Post]

*It’s also going to be a big year for Chaz Fletcher, who came to the team with a flurry of quotes about a bias for action and things of that nature, but as of yet, Chucky 2 Trades has done, well, fewer than two things. Time to start making some moves. [NBC Sports Philly]

*One of the easiest moves for Chaz to make, both intellectually and like...actually physically do, is to call up Phil Myers, who is absolutely killing it in Allentown this season. It’s time for this kid to get a long look. Certainly can’t hurt! [The Athletic]

*Our series on the best European players to grace the Flyers’ roster continues with #3, the guy causing all kinds of disagreements this season: Jake Voracek. [BSH]

*We also learned that a couple of Phantoms will be heading to the AHL All-Star Game. [BSH]

*Looks like this year’s Winter Classic was a success, with the event drawing its best television ratings in four years. [WEEI]

*But that doesn’t mean that the league doesn’t have any room for improvement. There are probably a few ways they can bring a bit more excitement to the game. [The Comeback]

*And finally, new BSH Radio! In which we continue to try and figure out where this team goes from here. Here being just about as low as they can go. [BSH]
