Matt Read Scores 12th on the Year

Standard Spin: Brayden Schenn?  Sean Couturier?  How about Matt Read, who scored his 12th goal of the season Thursday and is clearly the Philadelphia Flyers' top rookie for '11-12.  Read hasn't been on fire, but he has been consistent - although he has cooled through December after his fast start.  He's currently 4th in rookie scoring with 12 goals and 22 points in 33 games.  Of note: Couturier returned to action from injury on Thursday and picked up 2 assists. (Dec.30)
