*That game was absolutely terrible in almost every way but Carter Hart pitched a shutout on Carey Price’s birthday and the Flyers won to go up 2-1 in the series. But hoo boy do they gotta do better next time. RECAP!

*Oskar Lindblom practiced with the team yesterday and watched the game from the club box. And it was absolutely beautiful to see. [NBC Sports Philly]

*The Flyers’ downfall in Game 2 was allowing their strengths to be used against them. There was more of that last night, but luckily, Carter Hart. [The Athletic]

*The also pretty completely abandoned Carter Hart again, which first, isn’t nice, and second, won’t win you a lot of playoff games. [BSH]

*But the Flyers had a whole season of turning things around when the hockey got bad, so they know how to do this. They’re built for this. [NBC Sports Philly]

*So what, exactly, went wrong through the first two? It’s important that the team learned from those games if they’re going to win this series. [BSH]

*Anyhoo, the big news out of the bubble over the weekend was that Tuukka Rask decided to leave it. [Stanley Cup of Chowder]

*Also, overtime. SO MUCH OVERTIME. [USA Today]

*One of the cooler things the league decided to do was take little bits of each team’s home arena experience and transport them to Toronto and Edmonton. [ProHockeyTalk]

*If you need to convince some of your dumbed friends to join the Flyers bandwagon, there are several good reasons to jump aboard. [Winging It In Motown]

*And finally, while he didn’t work out here, ultimately, always remember — if you see Ron Hextall in the wild, buy him a bev and thank him for setting us up for several years of really, really good hockey. [The Athletic]
