*Last night, Oskar Lindblom took part in the pregame skate. Absolute beauty. He looked great. The Flyers, however, lost the game. Way she goes, boys. Way she goes. Recap.

*After a two day pause meant to call attention to, and take a stand against, systemic racism in America, the Flyers returned to action Saturday night and looked like absolute trash. Here’s some numbers for you. [BSH]

*Alain Vigneault took a little heat for some comments over the weekend, but it would seem that his heart is in the right place. [NBC Sports Philly]

*The players themselves let us know why they paused and what they hoped to accomplish. [The Athletic]

*There was a bit of almost-controversy Saturday night as one of the Islanders goals looked a liiiiiittle bit offside, but it didn’t matter anyway. Also, probably wasn’t offside. [Inquirer]

*Charlie takes a look at how the Islanders are beating the Flyers, sort of at their own game, and why the Flyers can’t seem to get past it. [The Athletic]

*And finally, 31 Thoughts, mostly centered on the events of the past few days. [Sportsnet]
