All I want from this game is two goals from the first line and a win resulting from that.

Injury update:
  • Tonight's goalie choice has yet to be made.
  • Briere may play at LA or at Anaheim
  • Sbisa is playing tonight
  • Metro is questionable for tonight and Kukkonen could play

The Flyers are banged up on the front line. Center Danny Briere is out until early January with a groin injury, and center Glen Metropolit has missed the last two games with a slightly strained lower back.

Holmgren, whose team hosts Ottawa tonight, said he would not know until today if the Flyers would recall a player (Andreas Nodl?) from the Phantoms to replace Upshall.

"It depends on Metro," he said.

Metropolit has been improving and may be able to play tonight. If he cannot, there's also a chance the Flyers will dress defenseman Lasse Kukkonen and move him to the front line.

Holmgren said Briere was "coming along nicely" and would join the club in Vancouver on Dec. 30. He is not expected to be able to play until Jan. 2 (in Anaheim) or Jan. 3 (in Los Angeles).

Before Briere returns, the Flyers will have to clear about $2 million to fit him under the $56.7 million salary cap.

Gah! Scottie won't play in Vancouver and I may miss Briere by one game.

Great job on the GDT, MSE.

Last home game before a six game road trip. Maybe they'll show up in the first period tonight.

Hoping it's a very happy Flyers Festivus for everyone!

I'll be at the game spreading my drunken holiday cheer around. Definitely excited for this one.

Until I realized you lived in Canada, I was going to say you should have taken your girlfriend to the game for her birthday like my girlfriend is doing for me . But I guess that would be a pretty long drive.

Anyway, here's to a happy Birthday to me (and your girlfriend), and a Flyers win while I am in attendance

I tried doing the opposite...didn't work out, go with your girlfriend.


Senators are 0-7-2 in their last 9 road games, lets add to that


Do it for Antonio "Tony Bananas" Caponigro!

Yeah we understand each other every other game, I just can't get out of this one. Last year there was an important football game on her birthday and I snuck a few peaks at the score while we were out and she freaked out. She understands my sports obsession 364 days a year, just not her birthday.

That'd be sweet if I could do that. Hopefully she'll do it for me though, I'd appreciate it more.

Look at the names being bandied about. Stevens even considers Kukkonen a viable option as a forward now.

By the way I went to Hello, Sports Fans! in Voorhees today and they have an orange Sbisa jersey hanging on the door if anyone is interested.

Also, apparently a car hit their building last night.
