Projected lineups for Flyers, Stars
Here are how the lineups could look tonight when the Dallas Stars host the Philadelphia Flyers at American Airlines Center:

FLYERS
Scott Hartnell - Claude Giroux - Jaromir Jagr
James Van Riemsdyk - Danny Briere - Jakub Voracek
Tom Sestito - Maxime Talbot - Wayne Simmonds
Harry Zolnierczyk - Matt Read - Zac Rinaldo

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

Sergei Bobrovsky
Ilya Bryzgalov

Scratches: Erik Gustafsson, Ben Holmstrom, Jody Shelley, Matt Walker.

Injuries: Blair Betts (knee), Sean Couturier (head), Chris Pronger (concussion).

Notes: Lilja is poised to return after a 10-game absence due to a high ankle sprain. He last played on Nov. 25 against Montreal. Bobrovsky will start in goal tonight, his 13th game of the season. He last appeared between the pipes for the Flyers in mop-up duty against Boston on Saturday. Bobrovsky's last start was Dec. 15 at Montreal, a game Philadelphia won 4-3. Bobrovsky is 6-2-1 this season with a goals-against-average of 2.72.

STARS
Loui Eriksson - Jamie Benn - Michael Ryder
Brenden Morrow - Mike Ribeiro - Steve Ott
Eric Nystrom - Vernon Fiddler - Radek Dvorak
Jake Dowell - Tom Wandell - Adam Burish

Sheldon Souray - Stephane Robidas
Nicklas Grossman - Trevor Daley
Alex Goligoski - Mark Fistric

Richard Bachman
Andrew Raycroft

Scratches: Adam Pardy, Toby Petersen.

Injuries: Philip Larsen (quad contusion), Kari Lehtonen (groin), Tomas Vincour (MCL).

Notes: Robidas will be a game-time decision after taking a puck to the skate during morning skate. If Robidas is unable to go, Pardy will step into the defensive rotation, likely alongside Souray, Robidas' normal D partner. Bachman (4-1-0, 2.25) will make his sixth straight start between the pipes for Dallas. Tonight's contest is the second of a three-game homestand for Dallas.
Quote of the Day

He is, in my opinion, one of the best defensemen in the NHL and continuing to grow. I think his game, from an offensive standpoint, he continues to drive our offense... I think there's still tremendous upside for Oliver.
