*The league suspended Shayne Gostisbehere for two games for his late push of Mark Friedman. In a vacuum, fair. But the DoPS is not operating in a vacuum this week. [BSH]

*The Flyers did some stuff too, signing a couple of prospects to their ELCs. Notably, Halifax Moosehead phenom Elliot Desnoyers. [NBC Sports Philly]

*Anyhoo, as we enjoy this second day off in a row, here’s what we learned from that split with the Penguins. [BSH]

*Among all of the Very Bad Things about this season, the penalty kill may be one of the worst. Let’s discuss. [Inquirer]

*Right so yesterday the Rangers were center stage again, this time for firing both their GM and President of Hockey Ops. [Blueshirt Banter]

*Now, the org is saying this had nothing to do with the statement made about George Parros and the DoPS. Personally, don’t believe that. Do you believe that? [Sportsnet]

*The reason, allegedly, is that ownership doesn’t believe the rebuild is going well enough. [The Hockey News]

*A couple of hours later, they announced that they were handing Chris Drury the keys to the car. All the keys. [Rangers]

*In other news, TNT has brought in Kenny Albert to be their lead broadcaster. He’s good. Good move. [NY Post]

*DGB finds some positive things to look forward to for the teams that are missing the playoffs this year. [The Athletic]

*And finally... new BSH Radio! Have a listen, like and subscribe, etc. [BSH]
