*BRING YOUR PLANTS INSIDE BABY WE’VE GOT A PERSISTENT FROST WARNING IN PHILADELPHIA RIGHT NOW. That was a fun game. Streak over. Time to start a new one. RECAP!
*Let’s start with some heartwarming on this Friday morning: Gritty visited some sick kids. One assumes there was a lot of glee. [NBC Sports Philly]
*In addition to the line scrambling that went on ahead of last night’s game, we also got a bit of good news about the roster in that Scott Laughton will be back for Saturday’s game. [Inquirer]
*Folks, we need to stop with the Johnny Gaudreau nonsense. Calgary isn’t trading him, so he won’t be coming here. Not until he’s at the tail end of his career and signs a 5-year, way-too-big 35+ contract with the Flyers. [Inquirer]
*Nick Lidstrom has a new book coming out — which will likely be a great read — and in this book he reveals that a former Flyer was a great influence on his life. [ProHockeyTalk]
*Now that the Leafs have finally rid themselves of Mike Babcock, who, it turns out, kind of sucks, you have to wonder where he’ll end up next. [ProHockeyTalk]
*And finally, new BSH Radio! In case you missed it, it was a fun crossover episode. Which you definitely don’t want to miss. [BSH]
