*Claude Giroux is BACK, babies!!! (officially a game time decision for this evening but let’s get serious, no way he doesn’t play) [BSH]

*And while the Flyers will be getting a big-time player back, the Rangers will be without their biggest. [Blueshirt Banter]

*Speaking of big-time players... Sean Couturier, ladies and gents. [BSH]

*In a move that we all hope might get him going, Alain Vigneault is going to give Nolan Patrick a try at wing. [Inquirer]

*With players beginning to return to the lineup, the replacements are going to start heading back down. First up, Mark Friedman. [BSH]

*The Mattias Ekholm rumors are going to persist until he’s traded, so we might as well keep going. Charlie and his Nashville counterpoint discuss the possibility of the Flyers as a Predators trade partner. [The Athletic]

*Sure the Phantoms have been doing well, but Jay O’Brien is the star of this week’s prospect report. [BSH]

*Bit of good news, Henrik Lundqvist is back on the ice after his heart surgery. Good to see! [ProHockeyTalk]

*This shouldn’t come as much of a surprise, but the NHL lost a ton of viewers when they had to postpone the Saturday game in Tahoe. [Yahoo Sports]

*Despite that, will we be seeing more of these kinds of outdoor games? [The Hockey News]

*The NHL has made some more schedule changes. Again. [BSH]

*And finally... we’re all having some Carter Hart feelings right now, it seems. Let’s talk it out. Group therapy sesh for all of us. [BSH]
