*What we learned from a disappointing night in Florida, which will hopefully be the final game of this current winless streak. [BSH]

*Morgan Frost made his NHL debut that night, and the level that he played at was pretty exciting! Here’s to hoping this continues. [BSH]

*The price you pay for spitting on an opponent is apparently three games. Licking got Brad Marchand zero games, so just stick to that. Or, you know, maybe just don’t do either. [Japers’ Rink]

*The Phantoms broke their losing streak last night, but like the Flyers they had been struggling to get a victory of late. Our weekly rundown. [BSH]

*While I’d be all for seeing Johnny Gaudreau play for the Flyers, it’d probably be looked back on as a pretty dumb move from the Flames’ perspective. [NBC Sports]

*Do you know which Hockey Hall of Famer that played for the Flyers appeared in the fewest games for the franchise? [The Athletic]

*The first coaching change of the season has arrived! The Toronto Maple Leafs have fired former head coach Mike Babcock. [Pension Plan Puppets] [ESPN] [Sportsnet]

*And just prior to that going down, the people spoke and they did not foresee Babcock being the first coach to go. Who else might be on the hot seat? [BSH]

*Finally, a look back at some of the contracts that were signed during the 2016 offseason. It’s just one big yikes. [The Athletic]
