*It was a rough weekend of hockey for the Flyers. Real rough. Here’s what we learned from two losses to the Boston Bruins. [BSH]

*Perhaps the most concerning thing about the Flyers right now is that it doesn’t seem to be just bad play that is sinking them. It’s bad play and bad process. And that might be harder to fix. [The Athletic]

*To the surprise of no one, the team is frustrated. Just like all of us! [NBC Sports Philly]

*One player in particular, Carter Hart, was very visibly pissed off after Saturday’s loss. It’ll be interesting to see if the team responds. [Inquirer]

*One guy in particular that needs to step up is Kevin Hayes. [Inquirer]

*In other fun and exciting news, NBC is planning to kill NBC Sports. [BSH]

*We learned on Friday when the Lehigh Valley Phantoms’ season would begin as well as some interesting details about how different it’ll look this year. [BSH]

*Can you believe it has been fifteen entire years since Claude Giroux was drafted?! [Inquirer]

*Outside of the Flyers completely imploding, the biggest news this weekend was the blockbuster trade between the Winnipeg Jets and Columbus Blue Jackets. [The Cannon]

*Also big this week were the first games in the NWHL bubble, which seemed to be a big hit with hockey fans. Get the details of their season here. [The Ice Garden]

*Did you catch the newest Flyperbole? There’s a new Flyperbole! [BSH]

*And finally, on Oskar Lindblom, who continues to be an inspiration to everyone who knows his story. [NBC Sports Philly]
