FLYERS AT PANTHERS SECOND PERIOD THREAD After Danny Briere backhand bitchslapped the puck top shelf to give the Flyers the lead late in the first, the guy who runs the sound board at the Bank Atlantic Center elected to play "Hold Your Head Up" by Argent, the sweet track embedded above. I went to a Zombies concert a few months ago in Maryland, and Rod Argent played a version of this song that lasted about fourteen minutes. It was pretty awesome, but I have to admit I was distracted by the 60-year-old man standing a few feet away from me who was dressed up as a female cheerleader and was wildly waving his pompoms. Whatever makes you happy, dude. 1-0 after one.

Go See MikeFive Live in Concert NOW

You know who's awful? The Eagles. You'd really be better off not watching them today. Save yourself the pain. ED NOTE: Ben is stupid and from DC and a Redskins fan and didn't know the Eagles had a bye this week. You know who isn't awful? BSH Musician-In-Residence MikeFive, who is taking the stage at Java INK (near the East Falls SEPTA station) at 4 P.M. If you heckle him loudly enough, he'll probably sneak in a live premiere of his new track for BSH, which will be debuting on the next edition of BSH Radio.

CAPITALS AT FLYERS SECOND PERIOD THREAD The last time I was at the Wells Fargo Center, I never took my eyes off DS:OD. This time is the same. Dany Sabourin: Opener (of) Doors is proving a fascinating presence. As for the players who step on the ice: Claude Giroux is good, everyone else not so much. Long way to go.

You know who has scored as many times tonight as the team who decided that he was too good for them to cope with? Our Latvian Wolf, Oskars Bartulis. Drop pass from Schenn. One period to go.
