*We learned yesterday afternoon that Shayne Gostisbehere will be scratched for a third straight game tonight against the Blue Jackets. What in the world is going on with this dude? [BSH]

*In better news, Jakub Voracek seems to be coming on, finally. [NBC Sports Philly]

*Back to bad stuff... another guy we need to talk about a bit? James van Riemsdyk. [BSH]

*Travis Konecny has quickly turned into one of the most valuable players on this team, and we probably have Alain Vigneault to thank for that. At least a little. [The Province]

*The Flyers have had an issue with slow starts over the last few seasons, and it turns out that, despite more favorable results this season, the team is still kind of trash in the first period. [BSH]

*Monday’s game was Hockey Fights Cancer night at The Farg, and a special guest joined the team for the evening and made a huge impression on everyone in the room. [Inquirer]

*This is a really interesting look at what it takes for a player to make the jump from the AHL to the NHL. [Habs Eyes On The Prize]

*And finally, no better way to spend your sort-of-fake-Friday-Wednesday than to learn which players other players think has the best hockey hair. Happy Thanksgiving, fam! [ESPN]
