NHL: Ottawa Senators at Philadelphia Flyers Eric Hartline-USA TODAY Sports

*Night one of the ploffs is in the books! Everyone enjoy? If you’ve not yet picked a team to root for, we’ve got reasons why you might want to pick each of the 16 teams competing. [BSH]

*Anyway, the Flyers. Chuck Fletcher will be speaking today at 11am, if you want to set yourself a little alarm for that. In the meantime, Charlie has graded the team, and the results are about what you’d expect, I think. [The Athletic]

*Late night news! Mike Yeo will not be returning as Flyers head coach, Kevin Weekes reported from the booth in Minnesota. [BSH]

*Here are some things you can look forward to as these playoffs move along. [FiveThirtyEight]

*Since we literally have no idea what it takes, as Flyers fans, it’s worth considering what it takes to go from contender to winner. [ProHockeyTalk]

*And finally, it wouldn’t be the playoffs without The Experts and The Insiders weighing in on who will win what, so first up here are some picks from the folks at the broadcast network... [ESPN]

*... next up some picks from The Insiders up north... [Sportsnet]

*... and the best for last, because what could be better than the thoughts of Anonymous NHL Executives. Happy playoffs, friends! [The Athletic]
