UNIONDALE, N.Y. -- Everyone will be watching Flyers goalie Ilya Bryzgalov, who will look to extend his shutout streak beyond the 196:13 he carries with him into Thursday's game here against the New York Islanders.
Bryzgalov is just 31:27 shy of John Vanbiesbrouck's Flyers record of 227:40, set in October 1999.
One player standing in his way will be Islanders forward P.A. Parenteau, who returns after missing Tuesday's game with an upper-body injury.
Here are the projected lineups both teams will use when the puck drops here at Nassau Coliseum:
Scott Hartnell - Claude Giroux - Jaromir Jagr
Eric Wellwood - Danny Briere - Jakub Voracek
Matt Read - Brayden Schenn - Wayne Simmonds
Sean Couturier - Maxime Talbot - Zac Rinaldo
Braydon Coburn - Nicklas Grossmann
Matt Carle - Kimmo Timonen
Erik Gustafsson - Andreas Lilja
Ilya Bryzgalov will be in goal, with Sergei Bobrovsky the backup. Bryzgalov tied Vanbiesbrouck's club record with his third straight shutout in his last start, a 17-save, 3-0 victory against the New Jersey Devils on Tuesday.
Matt Moulson - John Tavares - Kyle Okposo
Michael Grabner - Frans Nielsen - P.A. Parenteau
David Ullstrom - Josh Bailey - Nino Niederreiter
Matt Martin - Casey Cizikas - Jay Pandolfo
Travis Hamonic - Andrew MacDonald
Mark Streit - Milan Jurcina
Mark Eaton -Dylan Reese
Evgeni Nabokov will start in goal, with Al Montoya as the backup.
