*The Flyers sure did that hockey all over the Bruins In a 4-1 win yesterday afternoon, folks. [BSH]

*The nerds. The nerds still know what’s up with the Flyers. [Moneypuck]

*No seriously, the Flyers are going to win this wacky tournament. Even Charlie is on board!! [The Athletic]

*As we move through this round robin, AV’s going to have some decisions to make as he plays around with the lineup. One of the biggest questions falls on the second line. [BSH]

*One thing is certain, though: we know who the starting goaltender is. [Inquirer]

*While the Flyers are all set in their net, it would appear that a lot of teams still have some uncertainty surrounding their goaltending situation. [AP]

*Anyhoo if you missed any of this weekend’s opening action don’t worry, we gotchu. And will continue to do such through these ‘yoffs. [BSH]

*Some of the Big Things from this weekend’s games were the Penguins losing, lol. The Habs, who are bad, seemed to match up well with the Pens in one key area. [Habs Eyes On The Prize]

*The Pens weren’t the only team upset, though, as the Oilers lost to the Blackhawks. In a five gave series, going down one kind of already puts you up against it eh? [Yahoo Sports Canada]

*We’ve already got some questionable behavior out of these guys, notably Drake Caggiula already earning himself a suspension. [NHL]

*We also saw noted jerk Matthew Tkachuck pull some real messy stuff on Mark Scheifele, though he maintains his innocence. Sure. [The Athletic]

*Through all of this we’re continuing to take a look at potential draft picks. This latest one has the coolest name ever. [BSH]

*And finally, you may no longer need a video to get yourself hyped up for the Flyers, but just in case. They’re here to hype you. [NBC Sports Philly]
