*The Flyers played two abysmal periods of hockey and then one pretty good one and came away with the win. Why not! RECAP!

*Well, we saw some changes on defense last night, as requested. And Nate Prosser wasn’t bad! [Inquirer]

*You have to assume that these moves were meant to light a flame under the butts of the defense. [NBC Sports Philly]

*The Flyers’ early struggles this season have manifested themselves all over the place, but mostly at 5-on-5. What’s up with this? [BSH]

*It looks like Phil Myers is getting close to returning which, honestly, should really improve things exponentially on the back end. [NBC Sports Philly]

*The Flyers commuted to Newark for these last two games, which for some reason is unusual even though the players prefer it. It’s like... right there. No need to sleep there. [Inquirer]

*Speaking of things that would help the defense, we take a deep dive into what Cam York has been doing at college so far this year. [BSH]

*The NWHL bubble in Lake Placid was really looking like it would work flawlessly but the virus has gotten in and pushed one team out entirely. [The Ice Garden]

*Early in the season it is hard to know how things will ultimately shake out, but a few of these teams that are tearing it up right now definitely aren’t just getting lucky. [USA Today]

*DGB’s mailbag breaks down what it is that makes a trade a “hockey trade,” among other good stuff. [The Athletic]

*And finally, it’s Friday, which means that if you missed it yesterday, we’ve got a new BSH Radio for your weekend enjoyment. [BSH]
