*A game ending in regulation sure was nice, eh? Good win for the boys. RECAP!

*You may have noticed that Shayne Gostisbehere was scratched, again, last night. It seems like this guy is going through it at the moment. [NBC Sports Philly]

*It seems like Joel Farabee has been with the team forever, no? Or at least a bit longer than a few weeks. Let’s take a look at his performance so far. [BSH]

*Ghost doesn’t seem to be the only one who has worked his way into AV’s doghouse, if ice time is any indication. Because James van Riemsdyk is not getting any. [NBC Sports Philly]

*It’s been a while since Alain Vigneault was behind the bench in Vancouver, but there’s still a good chuckle to be had over one of the more notable times behind that bench. [Courier-Post]

*You may not realize it, but not only is Brian Elliott responsible for a few Flyers’ wins this season so far, but he’s also a pretty important part of the framework that will let Carter Hart grow into a superstar. [The Hockey News]

*Know who else is helping the kids thrive? Your captain, Claude Giroux. [The Athletic]

*The college kids are having a great week... it’s the prospect report!! [BSH]

*You guys see this Mike Babcock story? Good lord, this guy is uh... not a nice person. [Sportsnet]

*And speaking of, now that Babcock’s been canned, who is next? DGB ponders. [The Athletic]
