Why tinker with the first line right now? The Flyers have absolutely two stud oak trees protecting Giroux on that line. I love watching it. Albeit neither Jagr nor JVR have yet to take off offensively, they are a nightmare to move from the puck. It’s a far cry from last year with guys like Carter and Leino who didn’t give you much fight on the puck. That line has “Legion of Doom” potential written all over it.

I think they’ll go Schenn-Cooter-Hartnell and bump Read with Talbot. Read and Talbot already showed some instincts together last night. Read will still get ice time on PP, PPK and they’ll probably work him in on that 3rd line as well.
