*One can assume that the league isn’t very happy about all of these lottery wins leading to high picks for not-the-worst teams, because they’ve proposed a bunch of changes to the lottery process that are aimed at stopping this from happening. Because the league, famously, hates fun.

*Anyhoo, the Flyers. Right back at it again tonight, this time against the Sabres. It should be a chance for them to get a good win in and move in the right direction. Before that, here’s what we learned from the disappointing effort against the Capitals on Sunday. [BSH]

*Charlie has some stuff as well, including the worrying idea that the Flyers have no idea how to fix their power play. [The Athletic]

*At the end of the day, it certainly wasn’t the kind of game you want to see played in front of fans who’ve been allowed to come to a hockey game for the first time in nearly a year. [Flyers]

*So, tonight. This is the time for these boys to get it together. No more excuses. [Inquirer]

*Travis Konecny is just one member of the 2015 draft class that are currently dominating the league. [TSN]

*The Capitals and Tom Wilson won’t be fighting his seven game suspension. They will, though, be doubling down on some really cringey comments about the whole situation. [Sportsnet]

*And finally, the story of one of the 3,100 fans that attended the game on Sunday. A long journey, in both time and distance. [Inquirer]
