*The Flyers have a playoff win and they owe it to Carter Hart, whose birthday is today. Get that man all of the room services and precisely 3-4 alcoholic beverages. He’s got a game Friday. RECAP!!!!

*The story from up north is that the Canadiens proved they are good enough to hang with the Flyers. In reality, the Flyers played a bad game of hockey. And the Habs hung with that. [Sportsnet]

*Didn’t see a ton of it last night, but the Flyers will be looking to use their size advantage over the Habs in this series. [Inquirer]

*Charlie started breaking down this series before it even began, and thats why he’s the best in the business. [The Athletic]

*The Flyers have debuted a new pregame show that you absolutely CANNOT miss. [BSH]

*The Habs fans are, as they should be, optimistic that their team can find a way to win this series. So if they do, how? [Habs Eyes On The Prize]

*Our Eagles pals have joined the bandwagon! Fun!! [Bleeding Green Nation]

*Goaltending is going to be a big time storyline for the length of this series. So get ready for that. [The Hockey News]

*Oskar Lindblom is back with the team and you cannot overstate how important that is. To all of them. [NBC Sports Philly]

*Remember how the Penguins didn’t qualify for the playoffs? Mark Recchi got fired because of that lol. [Pensburgh]

*The guys making the crowd noises for these games are like, actual artists. It’s really quite neat. [ESPN]

*Unsurprisingly, having two good goaltenders is an advantage when you’re looking at back-to-back playoff games. [ProHockeyTalk]
