*It was really our first experience with the new-look Flyers and the result was favorable. Which seems good! [NBC Sports Philly]

*While it was definitely a lineup that seemed like what we might see opening night, there are still roster battles happening as we head into this week’s games. [Inquirer]

*One of those roster locks, Joel Farabee, is already looking impressive, even in the games that don’t count. [BSH]

*One of the healthy, peak-condition professional hockey players who had Covid over the summer will miss the season because, well, death isn’t the only negative outcome, folks. [ProHockeyTalk]

*Let’s look at ten things we should expect to happen as we head into opening night. [Sportsnet]

*The Metro Division gets the preview treatment. [The Hockey News]

*If you aren’t on Twitter, you missed quite a... thing over the weekend. Involving, allegedly, you’re Flyers. [ESPN]

*The league hopes to speak with Robin Lehner about this but as of now, no idea what is going on. What a mess, if even partly true. [Sportsnet]

*And finally, to leave you on a lighter note, amid the search for a new goal song, some Flyers players have revealed their own choices. Some interesting ones. [NBC Sports Philly]
