*It’s game day! And the game starts at 5:30PM! What absolute bliss! Get pumped for it by examining the team’s final roster, along with the Taxi Boys. [BSH]

*There are some new letters on some new sweaters, as well. [NBC Sports Philly]

*Carter Hart is ready to prove he’s one of the best goalies in the game right now. [Inquirer]

*It’s not all 100% roses, though, as the Flyers still haven’t quite solved the defense puzzle yet. Particular the Matt Niskanen-shaped hole. [BSH]

*Also, something is up with Shayne Gostisbehere, and no one knows what it is. [NBC Sports Philly]

*Our first opponents this year are the Pens and the Sabres, so we talked to our pals over at Pensburgh to get some Pens insight... [BSH]

*...and our new pals at Die By The Blade to learn about a team we don’t usually have to pay much attention to in the Buffalo Sabres. [BSH]

*Looks like the Flyers org has decided which corporate overlord will have a space on the players’ helmets this year. [Inquirer]

*And honestly? The advertising thing might be good for all of us in the end. [Mile High Hockey]

*It’s going to be a weird season, to be sure, but everyone is ready to embrace it. [ProHockeyTalk]

*Why not one more set of expert prediction before the season kicks off? [The Athletic]

*And finally, one thing you must do before tonight’s game, is check out our BSH Radio season preview. It’s a good way to kill an hour. Or two. [BSH]
