Flyers believe Couturier has earned top-line chance

MONTREAL -- Sean Couturier was a longshot to make the Philadelphia Flyers' roster out of training camp, but just over two months into his NHL career, he finds himself filling a major role on one of the League's top teams.

With the NHL's leading scorer, Claude Giroux, sidelined indefinitely with a concussion, the 19-year-old Couturier -- the eighth pick of the 2011 Entry Draft -- is being asked to fill the void between Scott Hartnell and Jaromir Jagr on the Flyers' top line.

Thursday's game against the Canadiens (7:30 p.m. ET, NHL-US, TSN) will be his second in that role, and while some may be surprised to see a junior-age player in such a prominent position so soon on a top team, coach Peter Laviolette feels the rookie is ready for the added responsibility.

"Early on in training camp we had him killing 5-on-3's, we had him on the power play, we had him playing against other teams' top players," Laviolette said of Couturier. "After camp was over, I made a decision to not change that. He did everything as well as he could and we decided to start the season with the same responsibilities for him. He hasn't disappointed us."

Thursday, 12.08.2011 / 12:19 AM / NHL Network

NHL.com

First place in the Atlantic Division will be on the line when the Philadelphia Flyers host Pittsburgh in one of 12 games on the NHL's Thursday night schedule.

The Flyers trail the Penguins by a point as they return home after Wednesday's 5-4 overtime victory in Buffalo, a game that saw them rally from a 3-0 deficit to win for the second time in less than a week. The Penguins have been off since Monday's 3-1 home loss to Boston, and they'll be without captain Sidney Crosby, who will sit out Pittsburgh's next two games.

The NHL Network will air the game in the United States beginning at 7 p.m. ET.

Five other games also start at 7, including three in the New York metropolitan area.

Penguins-Flyers rivalry sees some faces in new places

Thursday, 12.08.2011 / 12:00 AM / NHL Network

Adam Kimelman - NHL.com Deputy Managing Editor

"I talked to Mario (Lemieux, team owner) once on the phone. But I know a lot of people are probably mad about my decision. But I felt like the (Penguins) management didn't really want me. I think the fans (made them make) the offer. That's the way I felt. If I was wrong, I apologize, but that's the way I felt." -- Jaromir Jagr

One of the major facets of the recent realignment talk was sustaining classic rivalries. One of those rivalries will be played out Thursday, when the Pittsburgh Penguins visit the Philadelphia Flyers (7 p.m., NHLN-US) at Well Fargo Center.

The teams are separated by just three points in the Eastern Conference standings, with the Penguins' 36 points putting them at the top of the conference, with the Flyers close behind in fifth.

There will be one major element missing from the game, however. The Penguins will be missing team captain and star center Sidney Crosby, who will sit out the next two games following a hard collision with teammate Chris Kunitz during Monday's game against the Bruins.
