*Winning. It’s so nice, huh pals? Jake Voracek was on the ice for nearly two entire minutes in overtime and won the game for the Flyers. Did the game only get to OT because the Flyers looked like crap for most of the game? IRRELEVANT. Recap!

*It was a game that saw the return of Starter Hart and Michael Raffl and folks! They looked alright. [NBC Sports Philly]

*Nolan Patrick has looked better recently. That’s good. It would be very nice for him to make an impact every night. [Inquirer]

*But despite what AV will tell you, none of what we’re looking at lately screams “trending the right way.” [BSH]

*In that vein, Charlie takes a look at the process. Is it as bad as the recent results would suggest? Maybe. Maybe not. [The Athletic]

*We need Chuck to make a trade. There’s no getting around it now. The defense is not good enough. [BSH]

*But despite how easy it is to make trades on your Playstation or whatever, it’s not going to be easy! [ProHockeyTalk]

*Trades, you say? Well let’s take a look at the prospect pool, because some of these dudes might be headed out if we’re lucky. [BSH]

*And finally... Philadelphia Flyers: Cautionary Tale? Is that where we’ve ended up? It wasn’t supposed to be like this, and Chuck doesn’t need to let it end like this. So let’s hope he doesn’t. [On The Forecheck]
