*Holy moly the games have arrived! Preseason games, but still. Real hockey games on your television. VERY EXCITING. Ahead of the real game, here’s a look at what happened in the friendly scrimmage that closed out training camp. [Flyers]

*Sean Couturier is not at all nervous about living up to his new contract this season. Which makes sense, since he already has. [Inquirer]

*If you are anything like us at Broad Street Hockey, you’re very interested to see how these new defense pairings look in these preseason games. In camp, at least, it seemed like the Ellis-Provy pair is going to work out just fine. [NBC Sports Philly]

*Speaking of that pair, Ryan Ellis doesn’t just want to be a good partner on the ice. He wants to be a good buddy, too. [BSH]

*Sticking with our badass new defense, Keith Yandle doesn’t care about his Ironman streak. He’s just good at playing hockey. [Inquirer]

*Once again, the Metro Division is shaping up to be the toughest in hockey. Hooray! [The Hockey News]

*And finally, pals, it’s been a long Summer. A busy Summer. The Flyers might be good again. And tonight, we start to get a look at them. Enjoy the game, everyone! Let’s go Flyers!!
