*LET THE SPINNING WHEEL SPIIIIIIN! The hits just keep on coming (that’s a pun, I don’t care) as Joel Farabee has been suspended for three entire games for his hit on Mathieu Perrault. Sure. Why not. [BSH]

*And if you’re keeping count at home that makes for a mere eleven available forwards for tonight’s game against Anaheim. Suboptimal! [NBC Sports Philly]

*Good thing Nicolas Aube-Kubel didn’t look half bad in his debut Sunday night because hoo boy do we need warm bodies out there. [BSH]

*The Flyers continue to do well on various and sundry power rankings, a thing which we may want to enjoy while we can. [ProHockeyTalk]

*Good day to take a look at the prospects, considering we may soon be icing a team of undrafted high schoolers or something. Anyway, Bobby Brink continues to shine! [BSH]

*Late yesterday afternoon the Arizona Coyotes acquired Taylor Hall from New Jersey for peanuts. Which like... cool? The Coyotes are having a solid season so far but not sure Hall puts them over the top and no waaaaaay he re-signs there this summer. Also, did you know the New Jersey Devils won the offseason? People forget. [Five For Howling]

*As we continue to try and remain hopeful about Oskar Lindblom’s future, we can look toward the story of an ex-NFL player who beat this cancer. [Inquirer]

*And finally, there aren’t many big gestures a fan can perform in support of their favorite players, but this idea to vote Oskar Lindblom into the All-Star Game might just be one we can all do together. [BSH]
