*Now that was a fun way to start the season! Watch that sweet, sweet Travis Konecny goal again, and take a look at we learned from a season-opening victory overseas. [BSH]

*Charlie has ten things from game one as well, and while the entire thing is great, the most interesting thing to me was just how much they relied on the dump-and-chase. [The Athletic]

*It can be hard to be optimistic about the Flyers after the last few years, but didn’t that game just have a different feel to it? [NBC Sports Philly]

*Last night the Carolina Hurricanes held the Tampa Bay Lightning to just two shots on goal through the final 40+ minutes of their game. No, really. The Metro division needs to watch out for the Canes. [Canes Country]

*Also, Anthony Mantha scored four goals! Too bad it wasn’t Joe Thornton ... [TSN]

*In prospect talk, Scott Wheeler looked at one player from each organization that could have a breakout campaign. The Flyer is somewhat of a newcomer. [The Athletic]

*Contributors across SB Nation came together to create an AHL season preview featuring all 31 teams. A look at the Phantoms, and the teams that they’ll be competing against the most in the Atlantic Division. [Blue Shirt Banter]

*Finally, we’ve got photos from the Phantoms’ season opener on Saturday! While the game might have been a bit disappointing, Casey’s shots are anything but. [BSH]
