Playoff Briere's going to kick in after picking the puck off Hartnell for his quote.

Likely scratches tonight: Gill, Gustafsson and Newbury (not yet confirmed, skate is ongoing).

Good choice for goalie.

Agree with the decision.

If I remember correctly, the Flyers lost every game last season where they had a chance to bring their record to 0.500. Does the trend continue over to this season?

I believe they did get the record to .500 for a game or two; I think it was getting over .500 where they lost every time?

Maybe I'm thinking of the Phils.

I think you're right. Either way it's really similar and either way they suck.

If we can't even beat Montreal (a team we match up very well against and have owned in recent seasons) then the level of suckage is greater then even I thought.

It was an optional skate but it appears that Newbury will replace Laughton as one scratch, otherwise, same 12 forwards from last game (confirmation comes when rosters are submitted near game time).

If it has not already been posted Max Pacioretty is out with and arm injury sustained vs Toronto.

Edit: Haha, MSE beat me to it by seconds!

The Canadiens held an optional practice Saturday morning in Brossard and the only player who didn’t skate was Josh Gorges. Defenceman Nathan Beaulieu, who was called up from the AHL’s Hamilton Bulldogs on Friday night, took part in the practice.

I don't really get Rosehill over Newbury. Parros is out, I understand they still have Moen and Prust but still I don't see the need for Rosehill. Whatever I guess.

Edit: Pacioretty out is good news for Flyers fans. If I remember correctly he's been piling up the points against them recently. This is just one more reason the Flyers need to come away with two points tonight, and I'm confident they will.

The Flyers actually finished the year one game over 0.500. It was the winning streak at the very end of the season that got them there, and the only time they reached or exceeded 0.500 on the season.

I don't think it's clear at all. In fact, I think that's a pretty bold prediction. There's a reason the Flyers bought him out, and that's because he doesn't score enough in the regular season.

He had a goal & five assists in three games against us last year so you are correct.

It should be a big boost for us tonight.

Yeah Briere and DD kind of suck and they're on a line together so if they light us up that's just sad.

With Paciorretty out if they shut down the trio of Galchenyuk, Gallagher, Eller there's really no excuse for being scored against tonight.

Eller looked fantastic in their last game.

You're really setting yourself up for disappointment.
