*The Flyers lost last night — twice, really — but the real fun came from the inaugural TNT hockey broadcast. The chaos was beautiful. But yeah, the game itself was not a pretty one for Your Boys. RECAP!

*ANOTHER PROSPECT IS INJURED WHAT IN THE WORLD IS GOING ON HERE???!? [NBC Sports Philly]

Ahem.

*Thankfully, this one doesn’t appear to be too too too terrible:

*In better news, so far Derick Brassard is looking like a solid pickup. Yes, it is only preseason. Yes, it’s still good to see. [BSH]

*Given how amazing Wayne Simmonds is, it’s really, really enraging that he has had to deal with so much... bullshit. Sorry, no other word. And despite it, he’s amazing. [Sportsnet]

*Margarita Bob, still bad at retirement, has already anointed next year’s #1 overall. So that’s cool. [TSN]

*Boy, Evander Kane just refuses to be a decent human being, huh? What a shame. So much talent. [Fear The Fin]

*And finally, DGB, ever the optimist (for a Leafs’ fan), finds hope in the hopeless. [The Athletic]
