*A win is a win is a win, and while it wasn’t the best Flyers game we’ve ever seen, they were the better team for most of it and came away with the W. We all needed that one. RECAP!

*And last night was the game that made Claude Giroux the longest-tenured captain in Flyers history. And he learned from the best. [Inquirer]

*It was also Ghost’s first game back and you know what? Was he perfect? No. As good as we wish? No. A marked improvement?? Absolutely. [BSH]

*Claude is aware that the Flyers need to get better quick. Here’s hoping last night was a move in the right direction. [Inquirer]

*One thing the team is trying to do to get through this tough spells is keep things light. [NBC Sports Philly]

*NHL teams are starting to make plans for fans to return to arenas. Hmm. Would you go to a Flyers game right now? [Blueshirt Banter]

*The Hockey Hall of Fame nomination process has always been... sus. There’s not a lot of transparency. It’s hard to imagine that’ll ever change, though. [The Athletic]

*31 Thoughts, mostly on the big-time Pierre-Luc Dubois/Patrik Laine trade. [Sportsnet]

*And finally, have you checked out the Flyers Forecast? It’s a fun way to preview the week ahead in Flyers action. Give it a try! [BSH]
