This is Flyers Hockey. We don't do bullet points. We do Mullet Points:

* By all appearances, it would seem Nikolai Zherdev has bought himself a season ticket plan in the press box.

I know Paul Holmgren has said that Zherdev needs to put in the work to get back into the Flyers lineup [Philly Sports Daily], but this member of the unwashed blogging masses wonders aloud if fourth-line duty mixed with a tour of NHL press boxes is the way to keep a sniper like Zherdev motivated.

Just sayin'.

* To me, Bobrovsky vs. Bryzgalov is the least interesting matchup of tonight's game against the visiting Phoenix Coyotes.

Could this be the game where 2007 NHL lottery pick No. 2 meets 2007 NHL lottery pick No. 3?

From the Phoenix Coyotes website:

"Phoenix Coyotes General Manager Don Maloney announced today that the Coyotes have recalled center Kyle Turris and defenseman David Schlemko from the San Antonio Rampage, the Coyotes American Hockey League affiliate.

"Both Turris and Schlemko will join the Coyotes today in Philadelphia and will be available for tonight’s game against the Flyers at Wells Fargo Center.

"In 46 games with the Coyotes this season, the 6-foot-1, 185 pound Turris has recorded 9-9-18 and 6 penalty minutes.

"The 6-foot-1, 201 pound Schlemko has played 25 games with the Coyotes in 2010-11, registering 0-5-5 and 18 penalty minutes."

No discussion in today's Flyers storyline of James Van Riemsdyk vs. Kyle Turris?

Can we get some JVR vs. Patrick Kane type-love here?

* Would someone with Flyers locker room access (we know some Flyers beat writers and credentialed Flyers bloggers read Bleacher Report for the sole purpose of getting all bitchy and inflamed about occasional misdeeds at this site) mind asking Mike Richards WTF the whole "Rednex Rebellion" thing is about?

It would seem he rocks that gear more than orange and black.

Is Richards the owner of the company? A silent partner? An underwear model?
