*Tampa Bay beat Boston yesterday. A shame, really. Here’s what that means for the Flyers. [Inquirer]

*This, of course, means that Boston has lost the number one overall seed. Which is objectively just hilarious. []

*But enough about those dorks; the Flyers will be playing the Capitals this afternoon (4pm!), and the lineup is going to look a little bit different from the Boston game. [Inquirer]

*Meltzer’s got some various and sundry news and notes. [Hockeybuzz]

*Biggest news to come out of yesterday? Oskar Lindblom will be joining the team, and the team is thinking it’s not out of the question that he will play. []

*Next up in our draft profiles is a Swedish winger with a cool name. So many cool names in this upcoming draft. [BSH]

*It certainly doesn’t seem like the lack of fans is, in any way, affecting the intensity of these games, eh? [AP]

*DGB offers some advice on how fans should feel after the first few days of the return to play. [The Athletic]

*And finally, it’s time to just relax and accept the truth: the Flyers are just a really dang good hockey team. Enjoy the game this afternoon! [NBC Sports Philly]
