*If yesterday didn’t make it clear that the Flyers are 100% ready to go, perhaps this little message from the organization will:

*But the Flyers were ready to go, coming out, shaking off some rust, and beating the Penguins 3-2 in overtime. It felt so, so good. We missed this. RECAP!

*You know who looked good? Like, real good? Shayne Gostisbehere. [Inquirer]

*Anyhoo, this whole empty arena thing is going to take some getting used to — for them and for us — but might it actually be a good thing for some Flyers players? [Inquirer]

*While the hockey gods will almost certainly curse all of us with another Boston-Toronto first round series, we could play the Leafs too. And match up... not too badly! [BSH]

*Sean Couturier has a couple of goals. Really attainable goals. [NBC Sports Philly]

*Now that they’ve been contained within for a bit now, teams are starting to really adjust to life in the bubble. [ProHockeyTalk]

*Michael Raffl’s regular season was, as is his usual, reliable, steady, and pretty good-not-great. [NBC Sports Philly]

*It’s going to be a little while before we have any idea how the first round matchups will shake out, DGB wants everyone to be prepared. So he’ll hype you up for every possible combination. [The Athletic]

*And finally, with the real games coming up here quick, do you remember everything we learned about the Flyers this season? Back in the Before Times? Well, you can test yo’self. See how you do. [Inquirer]
