NEWS & NOTES
Flyers head coach Craig Berube won't be behind the bench for today's Flyers-Capitals rookie game at the Virtua Center Flyers Skatezone in Voorhees, NJ. But that doesn't mean he won't be keeping a close eye on it.
"Practice is one thing. I was a practice player too, but then you get into the game at the game changes," said Berube. "So we want to see how guys perform under pressure, how they think under pressure and things like that."
Lehigh Valley Phantoms head coach Terry Murray will coach the rookies as they take on the Caps for the seventh time in the last eight years, owning a 4-2 mark.
Last year's game marked the third consecutive game that the outcome was a one-goal margin with the Flyers rookies winning the last two contests, include a thrilling 1-0 victory in Virginia in 2013.
"I feel great. From here on out I'm not even thinking about the hip injury, it's a thing of the past," said Stolarz, who was a big part of that 1-0 shutout win over the Caps last year. "I just want to show that I'm 100 percent and I'm back. Obviously it's a long camp and there will be plenty of opportunities to play, but for me its about getting on the ice and playing in a game-like atmosphere is the biggest thing."
Scott Laughton is another veteran of the rookie game, and knows the importance of what this game represents not only for showing management what you can do, but for what it means in the locker room.
"When you're battling for three days as hard as you can against each other it's nice to form together and go against another opponent," added Laughton. "I'm looking forward to it again. It's going to be really high-paced."
For all three days of camp Laughton has been skating alongside Taylor Leier, who is also in the lineup and scored the only goal in the Flyers' 1-0 victory against the Caps last year, and second-round draft pick this year, Nicholas Aube-Kubel, and has stood out to the coaching staff.
"I thought he skated really well out here for three days," added Berube. "It's very noticeable when he skates and has the puck."
Puck drop is at 3 p.m. Fans can watch a live stream of the game, courtesy of CSNPhilly.com above.
For those fans coming out to witness the game first-hand, the first 300 fans in attendance will receive a Flyers “Philly Approved” orange t-shirt and 2014-15 schedule pop out card.
