*Before we get to the game, the biggest news of... the decade, really: The NHL will be moving back to ESPN. [Sportsnet]

*Anyhoo, the Flyers won last night. After the Sabres took them to the shootout. The Buffalo Sabres. RECAP!

*The Flyers getting their full lineup back was supposed to be a good thing. Instead, AV seems to be struggling to find lines and pairs that can stick. [Inquirer]

*Jim Jackson and the rest of the broadcast team have done a remarkably good job calling games remotely while no one has been allowed in the arena. Here’s how the magic happened. Love a peak behind a curtain. [The Athletic]

*Speaking of broadcasters, Scott Hartnell has begun his second life as a television broadcaster. He’s doing his best. [Inquirer]

*The latest 31 Thoughts, with a couple of them relating to the Flyers. [Sportsnet]

*If you were to make a roster of the most disappointing players of this season thus far, would there be any Flyers on it? Technically, no. [The Athletic]

*So, this whole pandemic thing over the last year has lead to quite a lot of us feeling anxious, depressed, unsure of wtf life is like anymore. Turns out hockey players are just like us. [ESPN]

*Finally, we’ve got a lot of hockey left to play this week, and Flyperbole is here to set the stage for us. [BSH]
