NHL: Preseason-Boston Bruins at Philadelphia Flyers Eric Hartline-USA TODAY Sports

*There was a games yesterday, but no one could watch it. Did it really happen? Schrodinger's Hockey Game. The Flyers lost, so yeah let’s just pretend it never happened. RECAP!

*We DID get to watch the one before that, though. And the Flyers won, and we learned some stuff. [BSH]

*Judging by Alain Vigneault’s comments yesterday, today is the day the final roster starts to get finalized. Exciting!

*To that end, the Flyers made some not-all-too-surprising cuts yesterday. [BSH]

*Meltzer has some thoughts on the latest at training camp. [Flyers]

*The roster isn’t the only thing that needs figuring out, though. The preseason games are a great place to try and figure out how to make your special teams actually work. [Inquirer]

*Charlie gave us 10 Things from that Boston game the other night, always good stuff. [The Athletic]

*Charlie mentions it in his article but it bears calling out: Robin Lehner has walked back his comments on AV, claiming he never meant to suggest the Flyers or Vigneault were involved in this whole medications accusation. Lehner is now involved in talks with the league to try and get some resolution. [ESPN]

*And finally, the full season predictions and models are dropping, and DGB’s got some ideas about how all 32 teams will shake out. [The Athletic]
