*The Flyers played their best 60 minutes of hockey in weeks and lost in overtime on a wrap-around goal. It’s just like that right now. Recap.

*You may have noticed that Shayne Gostisbehere was back in the lineup last night. That’s good, theoretically. Given the current state of the defense, of course. But the why of his multi-game scratching should be considered. [BSH]

*So the season seems to have gotten out of control. Charlie came up with 10 reasons why this is happening. Narrowing it to 10 is impressive! [The Athletic]

*In case you missed it, Cam York is headed to the bracket. [BSH]

*Bill Meltzer examined the state of the team at the midway point the other day. There’s a lot to work on. Obv. [Flyers]

*The first Canadian Division game was postponed last night due to Covid protocol. Even the safety of the north couldn’t keep things running smoothly for the whole season. [ProHockeyTalk]

*The Flyers are back at it tonight against the Devils. P.K. Subban looks... better this year than last. Could that get him on the trade block? [TSN]

*And finally, not a ton of news to speak of so why not check out our pregame with John Fischer of All About The Jersey? It’s a nice way to kill half an hour.
