It took until the fifth period of play for us to get a disgusted Bryz shoulder shrug. I had the over-under set at three periods. So, that’s something.

Not a good start for the Flyers. All the relevant links and reading in the roundup.

Let’s hit it!

The roundup:

– Fans aren’t staying away. NBC had its best non-Winter Classic regular season ratings ever on Saturday. The Blackhawks-Kings and Penguins-Flyers games, on concurrently on Saturday afternoon, received a 2.0 overnight rating, which is the best ever for a non-Winter Classic regular season game(s). The same for local ratings– the game got an impressive 19.4 rating in Pittsburgh and a 7.8 in Philadelphia.

– Tyler McGinn may replace Zac Rinaldo, who required 20 stitches after having his leg cut by a skate yesterday.

– Bob Ford of the Inquirer gives high-praise to 18-year-old rookie Scott Laughton. So does CSN’s Sarah Baicker.  

– Chip Kelly will reportedly make $6.5 million per year with his five-year, $32.5 million deal. He was spotted at a Chili’s in Philadelphia over the weekend. 

– The Eagles will reportedly name Pat Shurmur their offensive coordinator. Tim McManus of Philly Mag tells you more about Shurmur.

– The Eagles are reportedly interviewing Jim Herrmann for the defensive coordinator position.

– The Dallas Stars’ jumbotron took a swipe at Manti Te’o.

– Most cost-effective way to get a Claude Giroux jersey with a “C”? Cut out the “C” from your Mike Richards jersey and sew it on a G sweater like reader Victoria’s son, Pocket Utley, did. It gets you the ladies.
