Here is what the teams could look like when the Islanders and Flyers skate tonight in Philadelphia.
The Flyers didn't practice line combinations, but with a healthy Danny Briere and coming off a mostly solid effort in a 1-0 loss in San Jose Tuesday, coach Peter Laviolette could stick with the same lineup Thursday.
The Islanders will stick with the same lineup they used Tuesday against Washington, which means rookie forward Nino Niederreiter again will be a healthy scratch.
Evgeni Nabokov will start in goal, with Anders Nilsson the backup. The last time Nabokov faced the Flyers, he stopped all 45 Flyers shots in regulation and overtime, and then two more in the shootout in a 1-0 Islanders win.
