Here is what the lineups could look like tonight when the Flyers host the Penguins tonight (7 p.m. ET, NHLN-US) at the Wells Fargo Center.
The Flyers, after winning last night in Buffalo, did not have a skate today, but it's likely they go with the same lineup they used in their 4-3 overtime win against the Sabres.
The Penguins lineup obviously will be different from Monday since Sidney Crosby will be sidelined the next two games
. Forward Richard Park
and defenseman Deryk Engelland
are game-time decisions.
Here's what the teams likely will go with tonight:
- Claude Giroux
- Scott Hartnell
- Danny Briere
- Wayne Simmonds
James van Riemsdyk
- Maxime Talbot
- Jakub Voracek
- Sean Couturier
- Harry Zolnierczyk
- Kimmo Timonen
- Marc-Andre Bourdon
- Kevin Marshall
It's unclear who could start in goal tonight. Ilya Bryzgalov
played last night in Buffalo and has solid career numbers against the Pens (2-1-1, 1.73 GAA, .942 save percentage, one shutout in four games), but Sergei Bobrovsky
was very good against the Penguins last season, going 3-1-1 with a 2.17 GAA and .926 save percentage, including a win in his first NHL start the night the Pens opened Consol Energy Center.
- Evgeni Malkin
- James Neal
- Jordan Staal
- Tyler Kennedy
- Joe Vitale
- Pascal Dupuis
- Craig Adams
- Steve MacIntyre
- Simon Despres
- Brooks Orpik
- Alexandre Picard
will start in goal, with Brent Johnson
backing him up. Johnson did not skate this morning, as coach Dan Bylsma
said Johnson was sick, but Bylsma said he expects Johnson to be ready by game time.
MacIntyre has been on injured reserve since Nov. 30, but Bylsma said if the forward feels healthy, he'll be activated in time to play tonight. If MacIntyre and Park can't go, Bylsma said a forward will be recalled from AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton.
Engelland sat out Monday's game with a lower-body injury but skated this morning, and Bylsma said if the blueliner feels up to it, he'll play. There was no indication of who would sit out if Engelland did play.
