*The Flyers took it right to the Anaheim Ducks last night, winning a definitive 4-1 match on their first night back on home ice. RECAP!

*There can be little doubt that what sparked the Flyers back up was being able to see their friend Oskar. [NBC Sports Philly]

*Charlie took a look at the Flyers’ goalie pulling strategy, which is being driven by data. Which is cool. [The Athletic]

*Just like you and me, Alain Vigneault has had about enough of the DoPS shenanigans. [NBC Sports Philly]

*I’ve seen some people kicking around the idea that grabbing Ilya Kovlachuk, he who walked out on yet another contract in LA recently, would be a good idea for the Flyers. Good news is the Bruins fans have laid out what this idea sucks and is bad. [Stanley Cup of Chowder]

*There’s also been a lot of talk about the Flyers’ attendance woes over the last few years. Our team isn’t the only one struggling, though, and the easy answer is that it’s just too damn expensive. [On The Forecheck]

*And finally, Bernie Parent’s daughter Kim’s company (Biscuit Tees; they’ll be at Festivus Saturday, come hang out!) is selling teeshirts in support of Oskar Lindblom’s fight against cancer. Grab one if you can. [Inquirer]
