*It’s big test time! Sure the Bruins are a good hockey team, but the Washington Capitals are the best hockey team. At the moment. Time to see what these boys are made of. [Inquirer]

*The Caps are on a seven game point streak and have won six of their last seven, so you could say they’re playing pretty well! [Yahoo Sports]

*Charlie’s got some thoughts on what has been going right for the Flyers during this streak as well as the tough schedule ahead. [The Athletic]

*Did you notice that the Flyers have, arguably, the best line in hockey? No? Well, it’s true, folks. [BSH]

*Kevin Hayes has been struggling a bit, points-wise, but his value to the team can’t be overlooked, despite the struggle. [NBC Sports Philly]

*A bit of good news: we may be getting Scott Laughton back soon, which should solve that little fourth line problem we’ve been having. [Inquirer]

*More prospect news, including a Jay O’Brien update that should make you feel good. [NBC Sports Philly]

*And finally, this is a really good read on what number of games is the ideal number of games for a goalie to start. Interesting stuff. [Pension Plan Puppets]
