*Right back at it tonight. Just win the game. No big deal. You’ve done it a million times, boys. Just win. Anyway, before this game here’s what we learned from the last one. [BSH]

*The Flyers haven’t lost back-to-back games since way, way back in January. Looking back at the last ten losses can help us key into how they did that. [Inquirer]

*It’s pretty clear where the Flyers’ problems lie so far these playoffs: the dang offensive just isn’t getting it done. At all. [NBC Sports Philly]

*Charlie tries to determine just why these guys, who are known for scoring lots of hockey goals, just aren’t doing that. At all. [The Athletic]

*And while scoring is a problem up and down the lineup, it’s the up part that really needs to get its shit together. Specifically, the best players on the team. [BSH]

*With the current line combos clearly not working, what would you change? Let’s hear your ideal lineup heading into tonight’s game. [NBC Sports Philly]

*There are a lot of Youths running around this place these days, so you might not realize just how heated a rivalry the Flyers and Islanders used to have. [BSH]

*In other news, the stupid Bruins continue to win games despite losing their #1 goaltender. [ProHockeyTalk]

*And finally, the Penguins and Maple Leafs (these are teams that have been eliminated from the playoffs, just want to make that clear) made a pretty massive trade yesterday. Did they get better? Remains to be seen! [Pensburgh]
