*The Flyers snapped their losing streak this weekend in a win over the Rangers, with Big Sammy Morin scoring the game winner, and suddenly we can all feel a little more positive about this hockey team. Here’s what we learned from the latest with the Rangers. [BSH]

*It’s still March so the Flyers are right back at it against the Sabres tonight, who have lost 17 games in a row. [Inquirer]

*Back to this weekend’s action: Samuel Morin. He got his first NHL goal, won the game, and had a relatively solid defensive game. You quite genuinely love to see it. [NBC Sports Philly]

*Honestly it was the one moment of joy this team has brought its fans in... months? Probably months. [NBC Sports Philly]

*Nolan Patrick scored the other goal in that 2-1 win so maybe he’ll get going? That would be really good. [Inquirer]

*It was a big weekend for the Phantoms too, specifically rookie Tanner Laczynski. [BSH]

*The trade deadline draws ever-nearer and, at the moment, Chuck Fletcher really isn’t dealing from a position of strength. [Inquirer]

*Charlie dove into the trade prospects and more in his latest mailbag. [The Athletic]

*The overall national-media storyline about the Flyers right now is, understandably, about a team in rapid freefall. [The Canadian Press]

*In fact the Flyers have fallen all the way to the absolute bottom of some power rankings. BELOW THE SABRES. [The Athletic]

*And finally... so what, exactly, does Chuck do to fix this? It’s really a choose-your-own-adventure of possible solutions heading into the deadline. [BSH]
