*The poor NHL. Such a lovely event. Such amazing visuals. If only someone had thought of... the sun. [Mile High Hockey]

*With their start time pushed from 2pm to 730pm, the Flyers took the ice under much better conditions than the Avs and Golden Knights saw to start. And it... did not go well. Or went as well as you expected it to go, given the circumstances. RECAP!

*Now that this latest one is in the books, let’s look back on the Flyers’ earlier outdoor games. [NBC Sports Philly]

*There are some cool little nuggets all over the history of the NHL’s outdoor games. We’ve been doing this a long time now! [ProHockeyTalk]

*Mark Friedman played at forward yesterday. In case you missed that little bit of madness. [Inquirer]

*There was some speculation about how Carter Hart would look in last night’s game, given his struggles against the Bruins so far this year. [ProHockeyTalk]

*Looking back at the Rangers game, which was a very good illustration of the Flyers’ biggest problem this season: they don’t shoot. [The Athletic]

*You know who’s good? Joel Farabee. He’s really good. [Inquirer]

*So good, in fact, that in random redrafts that people do for funsies, he shoots up to the top five overall. This isn’t us just seeing things. [Morning Skate]

*The Flyers still need a high-level defenseman and Nashville might be shopping one. Let the games begin! [The Athletic]

*An early look at the Lehigh Valley Phantoms reveals some pretty talent kids that you might do well to keep an eye on. [BSH]

*And finally, life after hockey — even for players that had what could be considered good, long careers — can be really rough, we’ve learned. And it’s been rough for former Flyer Donald Brashear. But Brash is pulling himself up, and it’s a story worth reading. [The Athletic]
