*Nice little weekend of hockey for the Flyers, who came out and dominated the Los Angeles Kings on Saturday. And it was a new-look line that led the way. [Inquirer]

*And with our old pal Jeff Carter back in town the rumor mill kicked into gear. [NBC Sports Philly]

*Saturday also brought the return of Justin Braun from injury, ahead of schedule, too. Good news for the blueline. [Inquirer]

*Charlie looks at why there may have been no game more representative of this Flyers season than the loss to Montreal on Thursday night. [The Athletic]

*Just in time for tomorrow night’s game the Penguins are hot as heck; yesterday they came back from a 3-0 deficit to beat the Bruins. Greeeeaaaat. [Pensburgh]

*The Flyers have quite a few very (potentially!) good goalie prospects, collected from recent drafts. So whose job is it to keep an eye on these kids? [Courier-Post]

*This is an interesting look at how NHL teams can misuse their bottom-six forwards. [St. Louis Game Time]

*And finally, a long read on the special relationships between NHL defensemen, outside of the relationships with other teammates. [Sportsnet]
