*The outcome of last night’s game is less important to me than the absolute embarrassment that was the officiating. It’s completely unacceptable that at this time of year, with two teams who are, foolishly or not, pushing for the playoffs, that a game should be affected by this kind of mickey mouse nonsense. Anyway. Recap.

*And folks, Jake Voracek is your new assistant to alternate captain! Well earned. He’s clearly a leader in the room and well-liked by his teammates. [BSH]

*Have you been wondering what John Boruk thinks of the Flyers’ current position in the standings and what it means for the team going forward? No? Well here it is anyway. [NBC Sports Philly]

*In case you didn’t realize just how good Oskar Lindblom has been, we’ve gone ahead and quantified it for you. [BSH]

*There’s no doubt that Wayne Simmonds had a huge makeup on the DNA of this team over the last eight years. His teammates will tell you all the ways. [Philly.com]

*Mike McKenna continues to be an absolute gem of a human. [NBC Sports Philly]

*The Athletic has done another poll of active NHL players and, as usual, the results are very interesting. [The Athletic]

*Fans of the New York Islanders should maybe uh... consider getting over it. [Yahoo Sports Canada]

*At least our favorite Islanders fans have a sense of humor about it. [Lighthouse Hockey]

*And finally... new BSH Radio! And it’s a fun one. [BSH]
