9/26/07: Washington Capitals at Philadelphia Flyers
Washington sends most of its B team up to Philadelphia tonight to take on the Flyers. The Flyers look as though they'll be icing half of their healthy top level talent tonight, including two of their big name offseason additions in Daniel Briere and Kimmo Timonen (who'll rake in a cool $18M this season between the two of them). Wingers Joffrey Lupul and Scottie Upshall won't be in the lineup, after both suffered broken wrists last night. They will will miss two weeks and up to two months, respectively. Wingers Mike Knuble and Scott Hartnell will also not be in the lineup.
With the Caps dressing the likes of Donald Brashear, Matt Bradley, Brian Sutherby, John Erskine and Ben Clymer and the Flyers dressing Jesse Boulerice, Riley Cote, Boyd Kane and Ben Eager, you can bet there will be some fisticuffs tonight. Hopefully, no one gets injured thanks to a torn jersey during a throwdown...
