Likely lineups for Flyers, Maple Leafs
TORONTO -- Here are the expected lineups the Flyers and Maple Leafs will use Thursday when they face off at Air Canada Centre:

MAPLE LEAFS
Matthew Lombardi - Tyler Bozak - Phil Kessel
Clarke MacArthur - Mikhail Grabovski - Matt Frattin
Carter Ashton - Tim Connolly - Joey Crabb
Jay Rosehill - Colby Armstrong - Mike Brown

Carl Gunnarsson - Dion Phaneuf
John-Michael Liles - Luke Schenn
Jake Gardiner - Cody Franson

Jonas Gustavsson
Jussi Rynnas

With James Reimer out with an upper-body injury, Gustavsson likely will start the remainder of the games.

David Steckel will be a game-time decision because of a lower-body injury.

"I've got a sheet of paper, there's about 15 different combinations I have put down there." said Leafs coach Randy Carlyle. "I would think that you are going to see Tim Connolly go to the middle with Carter Ashton and (Joey) Crabb, that is tentatively on one of those little pieces of paper."

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

Braydon Coburn - Nicklas Grossman
Matt Carle - Marc-Andre Bourdon
Pavel Kubina - Erik Gustafsson

Sergei Bobrovsky
Jason Bacashihua

The Flyers are without goalie Ilya Bryzgalov and defenseman Kimmo Timonen, neither of whom made the trip. Bryzgalov has a chip fracture in his right foot, while Timonen is taking a game off to treat an upper-body injury.
Quote of the Day

Great players need great players to play with. That's why we'll have a training camp and we'll find who the best two guys are suited to play with Stamkos.
