*The Flyers have pulled a defenseman onto the taxi squad, and one can only presume that is because they will be pulling one from the taxi squad. Doesn’t seem to bode super well for Phil Myers, eh?

*We’ll know more this morning, per Slammin’ Sammy:

*Heading into tonight’s game against those Bruins, here’s what we learned from a split series with the Sabres. [BSH]

*First we lost Coots, then Myers, then Frost... and for the most part, the Flyers have kept it together pretty well. Will this last as long as it needs to? [Inquirer]

*It’s nice to find a bright spot in a bad situation, and one that emerged on Tuesday night was a new-look Nolan Patrick line that was pretty outstanding to watch. [BSH]

*Travis Konecny is a part of that Patrick-centered line, but even outside of it he’s been an absolute force so far this season. [BSH]

*The boys are moving up in the power rankings so something must be going right, eh? [ESPN]

*31 Thoughts, which, even when they contain zero Flyers-related content whatsoever, are always worth a perusal. [Sportsnet]

*And finally, in case you missed it, have you been checking out Bill’s postgames? They’re a lot of fun and a nice alternative to the boring old Comcast postgame. You can catch them live on our Twitch channel, if you’re into that sort of thing. [BSH]
