*The Flyers are good. GOOD. Happy Friday. RECAP!

*So Brian Elliott got his second start in a row last night, and rather than thinking of this as controversy/bad, we should be looking at it as good and stable. If they don’t Hak it up. [BSH]

*So yeah this is pretty much The Question with the Flyers right now; it remains to be seen if we will see more Brian Elliott than we might have expected at the start. [NBC Sports Philly]

*Charlie dives into the goalie thing, among other things, in his latest mailbag. [The Athletic]

*More than a couple of players have been playing well enough over these first games to garner a little attention. And while Ivan Provorov is no dud generally, there were some questions heading into this season. Good news is, he’s answered them. [BSH]

*Another early pleasant surprise has been Michael Raffl, whose presence on the fourth line has proved to be quite valuable. [BSH]

*And now he may be hurt. Which is a real bummer. [NBC Sports Philly]

*NO WE ABSOLUTELY SHOULD NOT TRADE CLAUDE GIROUX OH MY GOD PEOPLE. [The Hockey News]

*ahem. Anyhoo, big day for your earholes as we’ve got a new Flyperbole episode... [BSH]

*... AND a new BSH Radio. You could kill half of your Friday right there folks. [BSH]

*And finally, to kill even more time on this lovely Friday, DGB offers a guide to watching super-old hockey game clips on YouTube. It’s a rabbit hole you’ll fall pretty deeply into, methinks. [The Athletic]
