*Philly sweep... because the Flyers beat the Red Wings twice and also Phil Myers finally made his way into an NHL hockey game. GET IT?? Anyway, the Flyers won games this weekend, mostly because of Carter Hart, again. He’s good, maybe you noticed. RECAP!

*Saturday’s game was a wild ride, huh? Very needlessly wild, to be sure, but wild nonetheless. Here’s what we learned. [BSH]

*One of the more... interesting things to come out of Saturday’s game were the postgame comments from Shayne Gostisbehere and Scott Gordon. Seems to be some tension there, and Charlie has the lowdown. [The Athletic]

*You may have noticed that Chucky Two Trades has made another move. Goodbye Anthony Stolarz, hello Camuel Talbot. Let’s talk this one through. [BSH]

*And Cam makes 8 goalies on the season, which is an NHL record! Woo! [Yahoo Sports]

*Chaz thinks this trade will give the Flyers an immediate boost. Which would be nice! [NBC Sports Philly]

*Charlie also thinks this trade is good for the Flyers and offers a full breakdown of exactly why it is. [The Athletic]

*Here’s a good look at the trade from the Oilers’ fans perspective, which is always interesting to dive into. [The Copper & Blue]

*One thing is for sure, we’ve got our goalie of the future. How about the coach, though? []

*Speaking of goalies, in case you didn’t know, Carter Hart is a very, very remarkably young man. [NBC Sports Philly]

*Think Gord might start juggling some lines? [Courier-Post]

*As the deadline draws near, all signs still point to Wayne Simmonds being traded. [TSN]
