No matter what, games against the Flyers are always a big deal.
The Flyers have definitely been struggling, but we feel like they'll bring it tonight. If they don't bring it tonight, the probably don't have anything to bring. Two points through the first seven games is the lowest the Flyers have had at in their history. They've scored a total of 10 goals in those seven games.
Max Talbot, Adam Hall and Hal Gill are all Flyers now, btw. It doesn't look like Gill will be in the line-up though. He's probably still slowly making his way to Philadelphia.
Harry Zolnierczyk used to be a Flyer.
On the injury front, Scott Hartnell and Vincent Lecavalier are out for the Flyers. Beau Bennett, Kris Letang and James Neal are all still out for the Penguins.
EDIT: It looks like Dustin Jeffrey will be a scratch and Deryk Engelland will play forward on the fourth line. That means even more pointless fights! Yay! *Sigh*
Maybe Ray Shero wasn't telling the truth that time he said the NHL needed to look at fighting.
Or maybe he meant that the league should watch the Penguins fight. We're not sure.
