*It’s game day again! The first against the stupid Penguins. Well, some of them. They’re dealing with a bit of a Covid outbreak and have lost Sidney Crosby again. [Pensburgh]

*Before this game, take a look at what we learned from the last one. [BSH]

*The Penguins aren’t the only shorthanded team in this match. The Ryan Ellis situation appears to be getting... worse? Not better, at least. He’s out tonight. [NBC Sports Philly]

*Tonight’s game in Pittsburgh kicks off a very hard stretch for the Flyers. Charlie looks ahead at what the Flyers need to do to be successful. [The Athletic]

*The Flyers scored three goals in their last game against the Coyotes, after a long stretch of not-great hockey against that not-great team. Let’s look at how those goals happened. [BSH]

*Ian Laperriere’s tenure as head coach of the Lehigh Valley Phantoms is off to a... uh... really bad start. But he’s feeling positive about things! Good for him, truly. [Inquirer]

*The newest news on the Jack Eichel front has him landing in Calgary, which I honestly did not see coming. [Matchsticks & Gasoline]

*And finally, Wayne Simmonds continues to be great. As a human being. [Sportsnet]
