*RECAP! That’s eight wins in a row! Eight! The golden goaltender makes 41 saves en route to his personal seventh consecutive victory.

*Noted good hockey boy Carter Hart has also received another in-season award! This time he’s been named the NHL’s second star of the week. Number one in our hearts though. [BSH]

*Although better of late, this season has been pretty dreadful to get through overall, but maybe that’s just what this team needed to be successful long term. [BSH]

*Speaking of long term success, this off-season the Flyers will have a lot of cap space to spend, and a lot of decisions to make. [BSH]

*While the Flyers are the hottest team in the league, the Avalanche might just be the coldest. Well, besides the Ducks. What’s gone wrong for Colorado? [NBC]

*Pierre LeBrun takes a look at some trade deadline decisions looming, and I don’t know about you, but I sure think that Jakob Silfverberg would look pretty good in orange and black. [The Athletic]

*And finally, if you’re not like me and actively trying to avoid thinking about Dave Hakstol ever again, you can read about how he’s going to be spending some time with Sweden’s national team. [BSH]
