*Sometimes when you mess with the monkey’s paw, the monkey’s paw messes with you. Did someone wish to get a good long look at Morgan Frost this season? Well, Sean Couturier is out for at least two weeks. Not great. [BSH]

*Only two games into the season with four lines looking really, really good, Alain Vigneault has been forced to figure out something new with the 1C sidelined. [NBC Sports Philly]

*Thankfully, no one on the coaching staff decided to try galaxy-brain this thing and they did the thing we all wanted them to do: pop Morgan Frost into Coots’ spot and let those other three lines keep rolling. [Inquirer]

*And if Morgan Frost was hoping to get a shot, well... you’re the 1C now kid. Better run with it. [NBC Sports Philly]

*If there is one positive to find in all of this, it’s that Friday night, when Couturier went down early, some of the teams’ younger players stepped all the way up and made sure the Flyers came out with a definitive win. [The Athletic]

*Before tonight’s first game against our new neighbors the Buffalo Sabres, here’s what we learned from our first mini-series of the season. [BSH]

*What in the world is going on in Minnesota?! [Hockey Wilderness]

*And finally... Jake Voracek. Is a madman. And we love it? [BSH]
