Henrik has not looked good so far...I'd say play him to get his confidence going. he always gets up for the Flyer games.
he does have a good W-L record against the Flyers, but if my memory serves me right, his other numbers aren't that good, e.g. save%. Could be that I'm way off, but that's my impression.
However, I think he will play. He said already before the start of the season that it's unlikely he will be on top of his game right away so I'm gonna give him the benefit of the doubt. Have Biron play next Tuesday against the Flyers, leaving Lundqvist some more days off between games.
I think that 3rd line would be a nice forechecking line and maybe Kreider & Hagelin on the same line would put some tremendous pressure on the D with their skating. Boyle probably can't dish out the puck to them, but have them play a dump & chase and pressure the D into mistakes.
I mean Callahan and Boyle on the same line is like waiting for light to escape the black hole so why not Kreider & Hagelin on the same line?
I live in Philly and just saw the local sports news.
Schenn suspended tonight
Hartnell out indefinitely, out for sure tonight
Briere out until at least the weekend
Rangers should have their way with this team. Match Girardi/McD up with Giroux and they have nothing. I forsee a fight to start the game to get the crowd into the game. Rangers will come out on top and the Flyers fans will see how screwed they are with Nash in their division now. Rangers will win 5-1.
