*... yesterday was even better. [BSH]
*And yesterday was win number 700 for Alain Vigneault! Here’s to 700 more.
AV on his 700th career win: “I’ve worked for great organizations. Look where I am now. Had some great GMs. Guys that really had my back. Those GMs gave me some real good teams and I’m very fortunate…I’m working on that one thing I don’t have yet.” #AnytimeAnywhere | #PHIvsBUF pic.twitter.com/9pQ69dsfxw— Philadelphia Flyers (@NHLFlyers) February 28, 2021
*Claude Giroux’s outstanding efforts over the weekend really set the tone. He’s been a man possessed since coming back from his bout with Covid. [Inquirer]
*Saturday we saw the return of Justin Braun to the lineup and... he looked really good? More like the Braun we saw last season. An excellent development. [NBC Sports Philly]
*After an objectively great weekend of hockey, it’s a very fair time to ask: are the Flyers finally getting it together? [The Athletic]
*Like what seems to be most NHL hockey players, Chris Therien’s life after hockey hasn’t been all sunshine and roses. But he’s come a long way and is now using his experience to help others, which is very neat. [Inquirer]
*And finally... the trade rumors are getting spicier. It’s going to be a fun month, friends!! [BSH]
