*The Flyers are taking this... show? on the road tonight to play the Rangers in their train station. [NBC Sports Philly]

*Ahead of that, here’s what we learned from these last couple of games against the Capitals. [BSH]

*The story is the same as it has been for a while now: the defense is bad and the goaltending is floundering. [ProHockeyTalk]

*One nice thing that came from this homestand was that Oskar Lindblom finally got the standing-O he deserves. [NBC Sports Philly]

*Other than that? It’s all trade talk, folks. This team needs a shake up and literally everyone knows it. And we need this too, to see what we’ve really got once they plug up the defense. [BSH]

*Dave Scott has made it clear that ownership is 100% behind the front office should the decide to make a move. [Inquirer]

*So if a trade is made, who might we lose? Charlie runs through the roster to examine who might go, and who absolutely needs to stay. [The Athletic]

*In media availability over the weekend, Alain Vigneault and a few of his players suggested that, despite the struggles, the team is “trending in the right way.” Bill Meltzer disagrees. [Hockeybuzz]

*And good news, in a way... the Phantoms are good right now. Which should make some of those tradeable pieces look really good to the right team. [BSH]
