*The Flyers played, overall, a terrible game of hockey, Carter Hart stole them a point, and then let in a rather weak wrap-around goal to lose in OT. NOT GREAT, BOB. RECAP!

*Missed this the other day, but Shayne Gostisbehere may be gone from the Flyers, but he still holds fond memories about the city and his time here. [NBC Sports Philly]

*The flyers kicked off a fun new thing last night during the Penguins game. Each month, they will be holding a watch party for an away game at a different venue. Seems like a fun way to watch the Flyers game with a bunch of other Flyers fans, which is always a party. [BSH]

*Anyhoo, let's take a look around the Metro Division. See how things are going. [Canes Country]

*You may have heard, it was kind of a big deal, but Jack Eichel is now a Vegas Golden Knights. Somehow, they always make the big trade. [Knights On Ice]

*There's going to be a lot going on between now and Eichel’s debut, though. [ProHockeyTalk]

*This is a very interesting look into what it might be that makes defenseman decline faster than other players. [Top Down Hockey]

*Another thing that is interesting is the yearly look at which teams are bigger, older, etc. Helps paint a picture of the league. [The Athletic]

*And finally, brand new Flyperbole! Kurt R. joined Steve on this one and that is always a good time. [BSH]
