*It’s time for the Penguins, and a prime opportunity for the Flyers to recover from... whatever that was on Long Island. Here’s what we learned from that steaming pile of trash poop. [BSH]

*If it makes you feel any better, the Islanders are one of the hottest teams in the league right now. Allegedly. [Sportsnet]

*Also, as is his way, Charlie is here to talk us down. Despite Sunday’s loss, the Flyers’ numbers are still relatively good. [The Athletic]

*Big question heading into tonight’s game is who will be in goal. Do the Flyers let Carter Hart play through this dip in performance? Or do they lean on Brian Elliott, again? We’ll see! [Inquirer]

*Speaking of BAMFBE, he’s the NHL’s third star this week. Well earned, to be sure. [BSH]

*Taking a look down at the Phantoms, Morgan Frost and The Germ continue to be outstanding at the AHL level. [NBC Sports Philly]

*A power ranking of the NHL’s mushy middle, you say? Surely you won’t find the Flyers there. Dead middle. Mediocre as ever. [The Athletic]

*And finally... have you signed up for Fanpulse yet? You should! It’s populated by extremely smart people with extremely good opinions about things. [BSH]
