BOSTON BRUINS vs. PHILADELPHIA FLYERS

7 p.m. | TV: CSN | RADIO: 97.5 The Fanatic

* The Flyers have recalled goaltender Alex Lyon from their AHL affiliate, the Lehigh Valley Phantoms, today.

* Of the six preseason games played thus far, five have gone past regulation and decided in overtime… All six preseason games have been decided by one goal.

* Tonight's game is a rematch of the Flyers-Bruins preseason game at Boston on Sept. 21… Bruins forward Kenny Agostino scored on a breakaway in overtime to give the Bruins a 2-1 win.

* A Flyers defenseman has recorded a goal in each of the last five preseason games for the Flyers.

* Travis Sanheim leads the team with three goals and leads the Flyers with a plus-minus rating of +3.

* Travis Konecny leads the team in scoring this preseason with four points (2g-2a) in five games and leads the Flyers with 16 shots on goal.

* Five Flyers have played in five out of the possible six preseason games (Hagg, Konecny, Raffl, Patrick & Sanheim)… Only two of those players have played an additional game - the Flyers rookie game vs. Islanders (Patrick & Sanheim).

* Austin Czarnik (2g-1a) and Riley Nash (0g-3a) lead the Bruins in preseason scoring, each with three points, however neither are in the lineup tonight for Boston.
