#Flyers @mreader24 scored twice and added an assist in his debut, a 4-3 win over Tingsryd. #NYRangers Carl Hagelin had two assists. — Matias Strozyk (@MaStrozyk) October 9, 2012 Meanwhile, before the game, Hockeyexpressen.se spoke with Hagelin about expectations going into today's game... "I do not have too high expectations. I hope to get into the game well, get some good first byte and able to help the team with some energy. I'm in good shape, but it's always hard in the first game. I have not played since May." Hagelin played on a line with Flyers center Matt Read and Damien Fleury. ...my only expectation for Hagelin is to remain healthy. Although I wouldn't mind him working on becoming a more consistant offensive threat. And it looks like today was a good first step.
