*What’s up you beauties?? Your Flyers are the #1 overall seed in the Eastern Conference. Undefeated since the return. You absolutely love to see it. [BSH] [NBC Sports Philly] [Inquirer]

*WEDNESDAY. Get ready. [BSH]

*So how’d these boys go about sweeping their way through the round robin? [Flyers]

*Charlie points to perhaps the best part about this team, and the thing that will get them far these playoffs: a Mariana Trench-level depth of talent down the lineup. [The Athletic]

*Speaking of that depth, we finally saw Joel Farabee bring his A game and it was pretty great. We broke down his previous game, which showed the potential building. [BSH]

*And right above those bottom six is the second line, which was a smoke show against the Capitals on Thursday. [BSH]

*So first place means we’ll be facing those Montreal Canadiens in the first round. Might be worth looking at the ways in which they managed to beat the Pittsburgh Penguins. [Montreal Gazette]

*The hockey minds up at TSN seem to think that Montreal has the advantage in net. [TSN]

*And one can easily see why one would come to that conclusion. Worth noting, however, that while Carey Price tops the ranks right now, Carter Hart has been much, much more consistent this season. [Charting Hockey]

*Charlie’s study of the Flyers’ forecheck has concluded, and what we learned is this: they’ve got one of the best groups of forecheckers in the whole dang league. [The Athletic]

*There’s no clear idea of how long the Flyers will be without Jake Voracek, but hopefully not for long since losing him is no small loss. [NBC Sports Philly]

*Despite all of the fun we’re having and the success they’re having, the Flyers would prefer a return to the regular old playoffs once this is all over. [Inquirer]

*And finally... in case you missed it Friday, new Flyperbole! The boys are pumped for the playoffs and it shows. [BSH]
