*The Capitals are back tonight and looks like we’ll see Josh Bailey back in the lineup; he was recalled from Allentown yesterday. [BSH]

*Unfortunately, the addition of Bailey seems to be because Jakub Voracek is still out with his undisclosed lower body injury. [Philly.com]

*Thankfully, it would appear that the “Shayne Gostisbehere is expendable” chatter seem to have quieted. [NBC Sports Philly]

*There was a big wrestling show in Philly Monday night and apparently one of the wrestlers used the opportunity to roast Gritty. Which is hilarious. [BarDown]

*Speaking of Gritty, Alex Lyon is the latest Flyers goaltender to put the mascot on his mask. [NBC Sports Philly]

*We recently spoke with a couple of Flyers’ legends to get some insight into how NHL organizations relate to and with their players, current and former. [BSH]

*Last week, The Athletic ran its poll of NHL players, in which they were asked about various facets of the game and their fellow players and whatnot. This week, they are seeing just how well the players did at evaluating their peers. [The Athletic]

*NHL Gms have proposed a new rule that might go a long way towards helping to prevent head injury. [Sportsnet]

*And finally... new BSH Radio! We try to sort out this team’s true talent level and it’s worth a listen. [BSH]
