*Sean Couturier was named Player of the Game yesterday in Canada’s win over France. There’s no story here, I just wanted you guys to know.

*Over there at Worlds Sean and his bud Carter Hart (and now Phil Myers) are getting a chance to learn what it is like to play for Alain Vigneault. []

*Speaking of Worlds, Big Al took a break from his coaching duties to sit down and speaking Darren Dreger about why he chose the Flyers. [TSN]

*Remember that time the Flyers came back from a 0-3 deficit to beat the Bruins in seven games? 2010 was so darn fun. [The Athletic]

*Past Flyers are getting a lot of attention lately, as they figure in a new documentary about the powerhouse Detroit Red Wings teams from the late nineties. []

*The Dallas Stars signed one of their young defensemen to an extension yesterday, a deal which will likely set the floor for a Sanheim or Provy deal this summer. [Sportsnet]

*The whole hockey world (Twitter, but I digress) was losing their minds yesterday in the wake of the Sharks’ overtime game winner that may have come as the result of a hand pass. But don’t expect all of this outrage to lead to any kind of meaningful result. [WEEI]

*And more video review is not the answer you are looking for, since at present that is a giant mess. [The Hockey News]

*Rod Brind’Amour disagrees with this. [ESPN]

*And finally, new Flyperbole! Always a nice way to start the weekend. [BSH]
