*He’s back, baby! Tonight the Flyers will face off against the Capitals at home and Carter Hart will make his first start in weeks. Very excite. [NBC Sports Philly]

*These next two games are huge, as you well know, because every game is huge for the Flyers right now. But they got no help from the rest of the league during their little two day break, so they have even more ground to make up. [NBC Sports Philly]

*In fact, this four game stretch is probably the most important of the season. [BSH]

*Big news yesterday was that Gary Bettman elected to uphold Jakub Voracek’s two game suspension, so he will not be participating in tonight’s game. Tomorrow, though. He’s coming for you, the Leafs. [BSH]

*The Flyers aren’t the only team making a push toward the playoffs. The Phantoms are in the hunt too. [BSH]

*And just in case the Flyers don’t make their way into the postseason, let’s take an early look at some offseason options. [BSH]

*The NHL is absolutely terrible at marketing its own product, and now someone who is pretty good at marketing products is saying it out loud. Maybe they’ll listen! [Yahoo Sports]

*And finally... new Flyperbole! Two thumbs up, fine holiday Thursday morning fun. [BSH]
