Game of the night:
Philadelphia Flyers @ New York Rangers
7:00 ET… TV: NHL Net. (US), Local Networks

Records:
Overall: Flyers (21-8-4) … Rangers (20-8-4)
Away/Home: Flyers (13-3-2) … Rangers (9-3-2)
Last 10: Flyers (8-1-1) … Rangers (6-3-1)
Season Series: 1-0 Rangers

Players to watch:
PHI- Claude Giroux
Giroux had four points in his return on Wednesday and leads the NHL in points (43).
NYR- Michael Del Zotto
With 9 points and a +12 rating in 11 games, the defenseman has really turned it on December.

Starting goaltenders:
PHI- Ilya Bryzgalov (2011-12 stats: 14-6-3, 2.87 GAA)
NYR- Henrik Lundqvist (2011-12 stats: 13-7-4, 2.03 GAA)

Injury report:
PHI- Chris Pronger and Brayden Schenn (concussion, out), Sean Couturier (head, out), Erik Gustafsson (wrist, out), Blair Betts (knee, out)
NYR- Jeff Woywitka (foot, questionable), Marc Staal and Mike Sauer (concussion, out), Steve Eminger (shoulder, out), Wojtek Wolski (groin, out)

Game thoughts:
The HBO cameras will be rolling as the Flyers and Rangers face off at MSG in a preview of the upcoming Winter Classic. This will just be their second meeting of the year; Lundqvist shut out the Flyers in late November. Whenever these two get together it’s a close game, and I wouldn’t expect anything different here. Go with the Orange and Black in a feisty contest.
Prediction: Flyers 3, Rangers 2 (OT)

The rest of today’s predictions:
Bruins over Panthers
Capitals over Devils
Islanders over Maple Leafs
Hurricanes over Senators
Penguins over Jets
Stars over Predators
Avalanche over Lightning
Blues over Coyotes
Canucks over Flames
Sharks over Kings
