Projected lineups for Flyers, Maple Leafs
Here are the projected lines for the Flyers and Maple Leafs for tonight's game in Philadelphia. The Flyers had all but two players on the ice today -- captain Chris Pronger and forward Danny Briere are healthy, but opted not to skate. They didn't have full line rushes, but it's expected they'll use the same lines from Saturday's loss to the St. Louis, which were the same for Sunday's practice.

FLYERS
Brayden Schenn - Danny Briere - Wayne Simmonds
Scott Hartnell - Claude Giroux - Jaromir Jagr
James van Riemsdyk - Matt Read - Jakub Voracek
Jody Shelley - Sean Couturier - Maxime Talbot

Chris Pronger - Matt Carle
Kimmo Timonen - Braydon Coburn
Andrej Meszaros - Matt Walker

Sergei Bobrovsky will start in goal, with Ilya Bryzgalov the backup.

Forward Andreas Nodl and defenseman Andreas Lilja will be healthy scratches.

MAPLE LEAFS
Joffrey Lupul - Matthew Lombardi - Phil Kessel
Clarke MacArthur - Nikolai Kulemin - Mikhail Grabovski
Nazem Kadri - David Steckel - Matt Frattin
Jay Rosehill - Philippe Dupuis - Mike Brown

Mike Komisarek - John-Michael Liles
Dion Phaneuf - Carl Gunnarsson
Luke Schenn - Jake Gardiner

Jonas Gustavsson will start in goal, with Ben Scrivens called up from AHL Toronto to be the backup. Regular goalie James Reimer is out with a neck injury.

Defenseman Cody Franson and forward Colton Orr will be the healthy scratches. Forward Tyler Bozak, who took a puck off his foot last Thursday in Boston and didn't play Saturday against Montreal, will be a game-time decision tonight, according to coach Ron Wilson.

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.
