VOORHEES, N.J. --
It was almost full attendance for the Philadelphia Flyers
at their morning skate Tuesday, as the team got ready for Game 2 of their Eastern Conference Semifinal series with the New Jersey Devils
(7:30 p.m. ET, NBCSN, CBC).
The only player missing was forward James van Riemsdyk
, who played a major role in the Flyers' win in Game 1, with a goal, three shots on net and a screen on Devils goalie Martin Brodeur
that allowed Danny Briere
's game-winning goal to get through.
It was van Riemsdyk's third game back after missing nearly seven weeks with a broken foot, but a Flyers official told NHL.com that van Riemsdyk will be in the lineup when the puck drops.
skated in van Riemsdyk's usual spot at the morning skate, but here's how the lineup likely will look when the game starts:
- Claude Giroux
- Jaromir Jagr
James van Riemsdyk
- Danny Briere
- Jakub Voracek
- Brayden Schenn
- Wayne Simmonds
- Sean Couturier
- Eric Wellwood
- Nicklas Grossmann
- Kimmo Timonen
- Erik Gustafsson
and Andrej Meszaros
skated as a fourth defense pair, but neither likely will play -- Meszaros is still working his way back after back surgery in March, while Kubina will be a healthy scratch.
Rinaldo and Jody Shelley
also will be healthy scratches.
