Coming off last night's 5-1 loss in Montreal, the Philadelphia Flyers
opted not to skate today, so there's no real guarantee on what their lineup could look like heading into tonight's game against the Winnipeg Jets
. The Jets, meanwhile, will play the first game of their season-long seven-game road trip tonight, and had every player on the ice this morning.
Here is what the Flyers might look like, and what the Jets will look like tonight:
- Claude Giroux
- Jaromir Jagr
- Danny Briere
- Wayne Simmonds
James van Riemsdyk
- Matt Read
- Jakub Voracek
- Sean Couturier
- Andreas Nodl
- Braydon Coburn
- Andreas Lilja
- Matt Walker
Coach Peter Laviolette
was non-committal on his goaltender for tonight, but the guess is Sergei Bobrovsky
gets the start, considering Ilya Bryzgalov
played last night, in addition to the fact that he's given up at least four goals in three straight games.
The other change in the lineup could be Jody Shelley
drawing in on the fourth line in place of Nodl.
- Nik Antropov
- Evander Kane
- Bryan Little
- Kyle Wellwood
- Tim Stapleton
- Blake Wheeler
- Jim Slater
- Chris Thorburn
- Dustin Byfuglien
- Zach Bogosian
- Randy Jones
will start in goal, with Chris Mason
serving as the backup.
will be a healthy scratch, as Slater returns to the lineup after missing Monday's game with an upper-body injury suffered Oct. 22 against Carolina.
also skated with the team; check back in a bit for more on him and his recovery from offseason shoulder surgery.
