*We’ve got to wait until Sunday for our boys to kick off, but the league kicks off tomorrow and man, it’s going to be fun.

*Anyhoo, should the Flyers even be trying to win these games? I mean, there’s literally no way to stop these guys from trying to win games so let’s lean in if you ask us. [Inquirer]

*The Flyers will not be the only team faced with this conundrum as the round robin tourney kicks off this weekend. [ProHockeyTalk]

*Vigneault has pretty explicitly said that these games are going to be used as a testing ground, to find the best possible lineup for when the games really start to count. Shayne Gostisbehere is one of the guys that needs to prove he’s ready for the playoffs. [BSH]

*That exhibition game against the Penguins went well, given the result. But the Flyers didn’t look great. You want these dudes in the first round? [NBC Sports Philly]

*One of the guys that contributed to that not-great look the Flyers gave us on Tuesday was Travis Sanheim. He had a good season, though. [NBC Sports Philly]

*The Flyers broadcast team is going to work really hard to make it feel like a home game for us, the folks watching at home. Which is pretty neat. [Flyers]

*So, the Bruins on Sunday. A good team, to be sure. Technically the best team in the league! But there are flaws. Weaknesses to exploit. Ways to win. [NBC Sports Boston]

*The qualifying series are going to be interesting to watch. We made some predictions. For funsies. [BSH]

*And finally, in case you missed it, new BSH Radio! The gang talks about the playoffs and hilarity ensues. Have a great weekend, pals! [BSH]
