*Well, three days off were nice, right? We’re back at it tonight with the New York Rangers, who are coming off a 6-1 loss to the Islanders, so surely they’ll be glad to be playing the Flyers. [Blueshirt Banter]

*The Flyers’ expansion draft plan still remains up in the air, and their recent re-signing of Scott Laughton might affect how they choose to proceed. [BSH]

*Several current Flyers quite rudely commented that they weren’t born when Patrick Marleau started playing in the NHL. [NBC Sports Philly]

*Aww remember Michael Raffl? He’s getting settled with his new team and is ready to make a strong run in the playoffs. [Japers’ Rink]

*This year’s draft is really going to be a mess; these kids have had so much trouble even getting to play this year. [ProHockeyTalk]

*In other news that is a bummer, it is starting to look like the women’s World Championship to be held in Halifax this year is going to be cancelled because of the ongoing Covid issue in Canada. Was looking forward to a little Canada-USA action. [ProHockeyTalk]

*Ever notice that the Dallas Stars always seem to find these players that come out of the gate flying in their rookie seasons? Annoying! [Defending Big D]

*If Robin Lehner’s recent comments are any indication, there seems to be some growing tension between the league and the players with regard to the Covid protocol. [ESPN]

*And finally... we’ve got a new BSH Radio! Please to enjoy. [BSH]
