GAME DAY THREAD MUSIC
"Washington is Next" by Megadeth

Garbage Goal 03-01-2014 05:03 PM

Huge game if everything goes perfectly wrong or right. Got the opportunity to leap over the Rangers for 2nd in the division or throw away the win today.

SolidSnakeUS 03-01-2014 10:10 PM

Keep the train rolling and beat these guys!

Striiker 03-02-2014 12:11 AM

I'm not going to push my luck and make a guarantee for this games score. I'm 1 for 1 and I think I'll retire with a perfect record.

Hopefully they can pull a win out and hopefully Boston stops choking and gives us some help. It'd be great to gain ground on both the Rangers and Caps tomorrow.

JonathanHuberdoh 03-02-2014 12:17 AM

Mason starting this one again?

Probably, I doubt Berube wants to start Heeter, he's just here for emergencies. It'd be a bad idea to start a goalie who hasn't ever played in the NHL against a divisional opponent who's right behind us in points.... so actually knowing Berube maybe he will start him...

dats81 03-02-2014 05:44 AM

Another big game! Keep the gameplan and take a decisive lead early on again...let's go boys!

ilovetheflyers8 03-02-2014 09:07 AM

I'm going to the game today.

BWAVgal 03-02-2014 09:11 AM

Time to beat a team who has a worse defense than us! ;)

bennysflyers16 03-02-2014 09:37 AM

This game is huge, win and get a cushion, lose and back out of playoffs and chasing. Win these next two would be huge for any playoff push !!!!

Garbage Goal 03-02-2014 10:41 AM

Hopefully Ovechkin spent his goal scoring load yesterday.

enjoy! go flyers!

Appleyard 03-02-2014 11:08 AM

The next 6 games are huge...

all look winnable, all in conference, get 8/12 points and it puts the Flyers in a good spot, they would be on 76 in 67, which would leave them ~16-17 points to get in their last 15 games to get a playoff spot.

MiamiScreamingEagles 03-02-2014 11:13 AM

One change to Washington's lineup: insert Martin Erat.

Official lineups will be submitted in a few moments.

MiamiScreamingEagles 03-02-2014 11:22 AM

Starters: Mason, Timonen-Coburn, Hartnell-Giroux-Voracek

Starting goalies: Mason vs. Holtby

Non-IR scratches: Emery, Gustafsson, Gill, Rosehill
(Wellman and Grabovski for Washington)
Referees: Brian Pochmara (#16) and Rob Martell (#26)

RespectTheCouts 03-02-2014 11:25 AM

I'm a bigger fan of Carter than I am of Milbury, on the NBC pre-game show

bennysflyers16 03-02-2014 11:26 AM

Nice that Gus is out! Grossmanns foot speed should help vs the speedy Caps !!!!!

Flyerfan4life 03-02-2014 11:28 AM

LOL Gus scratched yet again..

there arent enuf facepalms for this...

Striiker 03-02-2014 11:29 AM

I'm so happy that we get Strader instead of Doc E and Pierre... I don't want to hear them blowing the Penguins constantly in a game they aren't in.

Garbage Goal 03-02-2014 11:30 AM

Gross man in against the Caps. Ruh roh.

So pathetic, we need speed and skating from back end and we choose slow over youth and speed and in rumours to trade for another CEnter, only in Philly.
