*The Flyers scored a touchdown Monday, the Pens returned the favor last night. Way she goes, right? RECAP!

*Joel Farabee really has been a bright spot this season, and he’s been good by Flyers standards but also league standards. Good all around. [NBC Sports Philly]

*Sometimes hockey players make plays that are amazing to watch because of their high level of skill. And sometimes, they just get lucky. [Inquirer]

*Speaking of good hockey players... it’s the prospect report! [BSH]

*In league news, Connor McDavid might actually get to 100 points in a 56-game season. That’s wild. [ProHockeyTalk]

*It has probably been clear to you from months now, but just in case it wasn’t, these players are so tired right now. This has been a rough season, to say the least. [AP]

*And now to the big news yesterday... Tom Wilson was fined $5k by the league for punching Pavel Buchnevich in the back of the head while he was face down on the ice. [Japers’ Rink]

*For balance, this was how our pals at the Rangers blog felt about that, with a detailed breakdown of what he actually did. [Blueshirt Banter]

*Tom has, as we all know, a bit of a history with this kind of thing. [ProHockeyTalk]

*The Flyers will be taking on Wilson and the Caps Friday night, fun times! [Inquirer]

*And finally, in what is probably the spiciest thing to happen in the NHL in quite some time, the New York Rangers were not having any of this. Should be interesting to see what comes of this.
