*This whole “leading by one late in the third, give up the tying goal late, lose in OT” script is almost funny at this point. Almost. Slightly less funny against a team as bad as Montreal. RECAP!
*With Scott Laughton out of the lineup for the foreseeable, the Flyers had no choice but to give Morgan Frost another look. Once again, he’s hoping to seize the opportunity. [Inquirer]
*After the Risto signing the rumors surrounding the Flyers’ defense didn’t die, in fact lots of speculation is being kicked up amongst the talking heads. That’s fun. [BSH]
*We’ll put a bow on the extension with Charlie’s piece, which is, of course, outstanding. This contract signaled a lot of things for the future of this team. None of them are good. [The Athletic]

*Perhaps you’ve noticed, but the Flyers are suffering from some pretty low attendance numbers this season. [Inquirer]
