*Guess we’ll have to settle for 81-0-1, huh? Oh well. The Flyers were the last team to lose in the Eastern Conference, so we have that. Anyhoo, the shootout is bad, the Flyers can’t win it, time zones are bad. Here’s what we learned. [BSH]

*There were a few interesting things of note from that game, worth taking a look at. [NBC Sports Philly]

*Through three games Ivan Provorov and Justin Braun and building a nice little bit of chemistry on the Flyers’ top pairing. [Inquirer]

*Some folks (me) were a little wary about the new-look top six when AV rolled them out to start the season but uh... they’re looking really good, friends. Really good. We may want to get used to them. [BSH]

*What other developments have you found surprising so far? [NBC Sports Philly]

*Joel Farabee is doing his best to make sure that he isn’t stuck in Allentown too long. [NBC Sports Philly]

*In other good news, Nolan Patrick has begun skating with the team. He’s still week-to-week, so it’ll be a while, but this is a good step forward for the kid. [Inquirer]

*On firing coaches, and why perhaps NHL teams should pull that trigger a little bit faster. [Arctic Ice Hockey]

*And finally, sure the Flyers lost — TECHNICALLY! — on Saturday. But you should be excited about this team right now. You’re allowed to enjoy it. [BSH]
