*We’ve got a game tonight, folks. Against the Canadiens. And you’re going to see another new-look fourth line in this game, as AV continues to try to tweak it into something that isn’t so awful. [NBC Sports Philly]

*And it’s a home game, and if you didn’t know... the Flyers are good at home. [Flyers]

*These up-and-down shuffles are probably going to continue as the Flyers balance on-ice needs and salary cap issues while Nolan Patrick and Scott Laughton are sidelined. [Courier-Post]

*The Flyers’ coaching staff are finding a lot of value in Matt Niskanen as some of the main cogs on the blueline continue to struggle. [NBC Sports Philly]

*One thing that’s not been a big struggle so far is the Flyers’ power play. [Flyers]

*If the front office is going to continue needing to pull guys from Allentown to fill holes on the big club, good news: there’s a whole lot of talent to choose from on the Phantoms this season. [BSH]

*Have you ever just been taking a nice walk, minding your own business, when you think to yourself, “Man I wonder what Ville Leino is up to...”? [The Athletic]

*The offside review is bad, top to bottom. Just terrible. Can this be fixed? [Stanley Cup of Chowder]

*And finally, DGB on seven old-timey NHL awards that the league needs to bring back. [The Athletic]
