The only "regional" Flyers game I get to go to a year. I say "regional" because it's still 5 hours away, but hey, I'll take it.

Also, I'll most likely be sporting my orange behind the CBJ bench about 4 rows up.

LGF!

I'm a philly fun through and through, but I've always liked Rick Nash. Hockey is the only sport where I can like players who aren't on one of my philly teams. Have a soft spot for Todd Marchant too.

don't worry about it... i have a bit of a mancrush on mikko koivu.


as far as the game goes, i'd like to see philly not let an inferior team come out and lose (cuz teams don't just roll over for you if you're projected as a contender). they need to go out like they did against the leafs and actually score a few goals.

4-1 final.

Me too. Nash is always a fun player to watch. Nothing wrong with being a fan of some of the opposition.

Umbergerler! Still miss that guy. Here's to hoping the Flyers keep going from that game on Saturday, and get another win. Hoping for big games from Richie again, Giroux and JVR. Need moar fantasy stats.

I usually pop over to the opposition thread to post our lines, but you're way ahead of me. Very well done GDT.

The CBJ have been a bit of an enigma so far this season. 3-0 on the road, 3-0 on the back end of back-to-backs, 0-3 on Fridays, 2 horrible blowouts at home (versus Chicago opening night & last Friday versus Calgary).

I don't know which team is going to show up. The one that looks like crap (and doesn't appear to care) or the one that came back after being down 2-0 in Chicago on Saturday.

We shall see.

For the record - Umberger has been VERY good this season (easily top 3 on the team if not #1)

Great job MSE, and I love the song - there really isn't a bad time for an AC/DC song!

I really hope we don't hear the cannon tonight!

I really like Columbus, and I have a soft spot for Mase - glad he's not getting the start tonight.

Hopefully we see more of the same from Saturday night, and it would be nice to see the PP really get going.

LET'S GO FLYERS!!

I've heard he has a big shot but have yet to see it.
Meszaros and Timonen were both standouts, too.

Here's a good article about Powe:

Read more: http://www.philly.com/philly/sports/...#ixzz13NoEPrIa

Quote:
COLUMBUS - Since arriving last December, Peter Laviolette has clamored for accountability, effort, discipline - and, most of all, consistency.
Darroll Powe may just be his model hockey player.

Powe, one of the Flyers' most noticeable players through the first seven games, was rewarded with a game on the first line on Saturday night. Laviolette bumped Powe - usually reserved for the checking line - up to play with Mike Richards and Claude Giroux.

The line clicked. Richards posted his first goal of the season and picked up two assists, pacing the Flyers to a 5-2 victory over Toronto, one of the hottest teams in the Eastern Conference. But Powe was the man behind the scenes.

Powe, 25, is a rarity in today's NHL. And it's not his Ivy League degree in sociology from Princeton that sets him apart.

Powe is undersized (at 5-11) for a grind-line winger. He was undrafted out of college. But he caught the eye of former Flyers coach John Stevens, who helped mold him into the role he fills today.

Sometimes when a coach like Stevens is fired, players like Powe lose their jobs, too.

Instead, Laviolette has found him to be an integral cog among the Flyers' working parts. Powe has carved out a nice living for himself with the Flyers.

According to Aaron Portzline (Columbus Dispatch reporter), Huselius is out for tonight - Boll is in.

http://twitter.com/aportzline

That will shuffle the lines (probably). Boll should end up on the 4th line. He's been out with back problems. I would hope that he doesn't fight tonight and re-injure himself.


Possibilities:

Wilson/MacKenzie - Pahlsson - Clark
Filatov - MacKenzie/Wilson - Boll

Same here. Do yourself a favour and play JVR this week. I just dropped him, so he's due to go ******* right about now.
