The New Jersey Devils
confirmed Johan Hedberg
would start in net, and Philadelphia Flyers
coach Peter Laviolette
confirmed a few minutes ago that Sergei Bobrovsky
would start in goal for the Flyers.
With both teams having played their No. 1 goalies last night, there's no real surprise with these decisions.
In 20 (19 starts) against the Flyers, Hedberg has a career record of 7-10-1 with a 3.03 goals-against average and .899 save percentage. Last season, he went 3-3-0 against Philadelphia, including a 26-save effort in a 3-1 Devils win Jan. 11, his last start in Philadelphia.
Bobrovsky started just once against the Devils, stopping 23 of 26 shots Dec. 4, 2010, in a 5-3 victory in Philadelphia.
