Esche will be the playoff starter for the Flyers. With Niittymaki as the backup, he would be riding the bench while Esche played because Ken Hitchock would not be starting a rookie goaltender in the NHL playoffs. A rookie, Burke is not.

Now, Niittymaki can actually get some playing time with the Phantoms and the Phantoms do appear to be headed the the post season themselves, so Antero should get some playing time in the AHL post season.
