Projected lineup for Flyers
The Philadelphia Flyers opted to cancel their morning skate today in Anaheim, so here's a guess as to what their lineup could look like when they hit the ice at the Honda Center tonight.

Jaromir Jagr will play after missing most of the last six games with a lower-body injury. James van Riemsdyk is with the team, but will sit out due to an upper-body injury. Defenseman Matt Walker cleared re-entry waivers, and it's likely he'll play tonight in place of rookie blueliner Kevin Marshall.

Scott Hartnell - Claude Giroux - Jaromir Jagr
Wayne Simmonds - Danny Briere - Matt Read
Brayden Schenn - Maxime Talbot - Jakub Voracek
Harry Zolnierczyk - Sean Couturier - Zac Rinaldo

Braydon Coburn - Kimmo Timonen
Matt Carle - Marc-Andre Bourdon
Matt Walker - Andrej Meszaros

Ilya Bryzgalov will make his first start in net since Nov. 23, with Sergei Bobrovsky the backup.

Quote of the Day

My job was to get that puck and put it on net, and his job was not letting me do it. I got the best of that, but that game's over and to be honest I already forgot about it.
