We'll be kicking off the Flyers-Rangers HBO 24/7 liveblog just ahead of the 10 PM airing of the episode tonight, and we hope you'll swing by and watch it with us. Until then, a few links to serve as an appetizer.

We’ll be kicking off the Flyers-Rangers HBO 24/7 liveblog just ahead of the 10 PM airing of the episode tonight, and we hope you’ll swing by and watch it with us. Until then, a few links to serve as an appetizer.

First, a sobering look at how dramatically concussions have impacted the Flyers team and the lives of some excellent players in recent years. Our good friend Rev. Paul Revere as always does a great job tying the recent past into one of our team’s present situations. [House That Glanville Built]

The Flyers did not provide the anticipated update on Chris Pronger tonight. The update on Claude Giroux is that his status remains the same.

Too sobering? Well wash it down with Puck Daddy’s 24/7 Drinking Game. Pretty solid, and I’d be lying if I said I didn’t print out a few copies and plan to half-assedly play along while chirping at you all on the liveblog. What’s your drink tonight? [Puck Daddy]

Also enjoyed PD’s Seven Humble Requests for the series. [Puck Daddy]

Broad Street Hockey’s #hartnelldown shirt is pretty sweet, nicely designed. Now, Hartnell himself has started selling one too, with proceeds going to charity. Also a real nice looking T, and how great is it to see him embracing that hashtag after every game? He even bought the domain, and has a running counter of hartnelldowns. Really hope Harts plays a big role in the 24/7 series. [hartnelldown.com]
