The Philadelphia Flyers will open their eight-game preseason schedule tonight against the New Jersey Devils at the Wachovia Center (7:00 p.m.). The game will be carried right here via webcast in the local television viewing market courtesy FlyersTV.
NOTES: The Flyers are only required to dress eight veterans for their first preseason game tonight when they host the New Jersey Devils at the Wachovia Center at 7 p.m ... Stevens wouldn't say which players are slated to dress for the opener, but re-confirmed Simon Gagne would not be in the lineup ... Marty Biron will start in goal and play two periods ... The Flyers will practice Tuesday before leaving for Canada where they will play Ottawa and the New York Islanders at a neutral site.
"It's a little different situation now going into Philly than it was when I started," Rolston said. "It seemed like they had nobody under 6-5 back then. You'd be going into that atmosphere in the Spectrum. It seemed like the fans were on your back."
Damn I can't believe the (pre)season starts tonight. I'm so stoked. I hate it when the weather gets cold, so the hockey season honestly is what gets me through fall/winter. If it wasn't for the flyers, I'd be living in Florida right now!
So pumped....hopefully I get the stream here at the Jersey Shore. I did last year.
