*It only took 69 games (nice) for the Flyers to figure out how to score a shootout goal. And then win a shootout. Ridiculous, this team. Anyhoo it was kind of a fun game, eh?

*Cam York thought seeing Justin Braun in Rangers colors was weird and he’s not wrong. [Inquirer]

*Let’s also wrap up Saturday’s loss to the Leafs with the things we learned. [BSH]

*But the big news this weekend was Mike Yeo’s decision to scratch Keith Yandle, ending his Ironman streak. Now, when none of this matters. [BSH]

*Charlie weighed in on the decision after we all learned about it Saturday morning. [The Athletic]

*Kevin Hayes, who as we know is one of Yandle’s oldest friends, was not shy about expressing his displeasure with the decision. [NBC Sports Philly]

*Carter Hart took the time this weekend to demonstrate that he really is one of the nicest guys in the league when it comes to the fans. [NBC Sports Philly]
