Bryzgalov to make NHL-high 19th start

The Flyers held their morning skate at their suburban practice facility in Voorhees, N.J., with the most significant news being that Ilya Bryzgalov will make his League-high 19th start in net.

He enters 9-8-1 with a 2.77 goals-against average and .902 save percentage. He stopped 34 of 37 shots in Saturday's 5-3 win against the Winnipeg Jets, and after saying he was "exhausted" during an interview with a Philadelphia radio station, he sounded more energized after Saturday's game. When asked after the game how he felt, he answered, "Good, like always."

Here is the lineup the Flyers likely will use when they face the Maple Leafs on Monday:

Scott Hartnell - Claude Giroux - Jakub Voracek

Brayden Schenn - Danny Briere - Wayne Simmonds

Zac Rinaldo - Sean Couturier - Maxime Talbot

Mike Knuble - Ruslan Fedotenko - Tye McGinn

Braydon Coburn - Nicklas Grossmann

Kimmo Timonen - Luke Schenn

Bruno Gervais - Erik Gustafsson

Ilya Bryzgalov

Brian Boucher

Scratched: Tom Sestito, Harry Zolnierczyk, Kurtis Foster

Injured: Andrej Meszaros, Michael Leighton, Matt Read, Jody Shelley

Quote of the Day

Just the feel for the direction they were headed and what they're trying to do, it just felt that this is a really good thing for this organization. They've got the pieces. We can put something together and go on a run or two and be together for a while, and I'm really excited about that opportunity. The team we have here has an opportunity to win, and that's the most attractive thing.
