Panthers make few changes after blowout loss

One game after their 7-0 loss at the St. Louis Blues, it appears the Florida Panthers will face the Philadelphia Flyers with almost the same lineup.

According to the Miami Herald, the only change based on the team's morning skate at Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia appears to be Drew Shore replacing Krys Barch at right wing on Scott Gomez’s line.

It appears Tim Thomas will make the start in net, one game after allowing five goals on 28 shots in two periods. In eight career regular season games in Philadelphia, Thomas is 8-0 with a 1.86 goals-against average and .947 save percentage. He's allowed 15 goals in those eight games.

Here is the lineup the Panthers likely will use when they face the Flyers on Tuesday:

Jonathan Huberdeau - Marcel Goc - Kris Versteeg

Tomas Fleischmann - Aleksander Barkov - Brad Boyes

Tomas Kopecky - Shawn Matthias - Jesse Winchester

Scottie Upshall - Scott Gomez - Drew Shore

Tom Gilbert - Brian Campbell

Ryan Whitney - Erik Gudbranson

Dmitry Kulikov - Mike Weaver

Tim Thomas

Jacob Markstrom

Scratched: Joey Crabb, Matt Gilroy, Krys Barch

Injured: Ed Jovanovski (hip), Steven Pinizzotto (hip), Nick Bjugstad (concussion), Sean Bergenheim (abdominal surgery)

Quote of the Day

I don't have a crystal ball. Predicting is a real complicated thing. If we stay healthy, have enough depth and get the good goaltending we think we're going to have, you can go all the way. But a lot of things have to happen. There's going to be a lot of teams that think the same thing. Everyone made deals. We're all are optimistic about where we'll end up.
