*This ridiculous team just won’t die, huh? Not yet, anyway. The boys rolled over the allegedly-good New York Islanders again this weekend, and here’s what we learned. [BSH]

*Jake Voracek was a big part of Saturday night’s win, and then he was kind of hilarious in the locker room afterward. [NBC Sports Philly]

*And for successfully avoiding being boarded by John Boychuk, Voracek was rewarded with a two game suspension. Gotta love that wheel of justice. [BSH]

*On Scott Gordon; what he’s done in his time coaching the Flyers and what his chances of winning the job permanently might be. Greater than zero, apparently. [ProHockeyTalk]

*Despite this late-season success Chaz still has a lot of work to do to turn this team into a true contender. []

*Phil Myers seems to have earned himself a permanent spot on the NHL roster. Here’s how he got here. [Flyers]

*Have you been wondering what John Boruk thinks about the importance of the next couple of games for the Flyers’ precarious playoff hopes? No? Well here it is anyway. [NBC Sports Philly]

*Looking back to the mid-week loss to Washington, sometimes it is worthwhile to examine just how everything goes wrong in a hockey game. As it did in that one. Very quickly. [BSH]

*We’ve got NHLe number for the kids through February. They remain mostly good! [BSH]

*There have been a lot of remarkable things happening this season, here are four of the most notable heading into the home stretch. [ProHockeyTalk]

*And finally, after a season during which most of the fan base completely checked out and stop caring for nearly 23 of the year and the building was pretty empty for long stretches, the Flyers have elected to raise ticket prices. Gotta cash in on that apathy, baby. []
