I see Simmer is still on the first line for tonight, hopefully with 2 days of practice we can see something better from the top line

My problem is more with Hartnell. They play extremely similar games so having both is really redundant, even more-so when they're both struggling. Beyond that Simmonds is the better all-around player so I'd move Hartnell off that line if possible.

I see nothing wrong with trying it out. Let's see what happens. If it continues not to work then change it around.

Greiss in, so queue the built in excuses that the Flyers suck against back-up goalies.

Dave Tippett's last NHL team as a player was the Flyers. 20 years ago. Played under Terry Simpson, his junior coach. Yikes.

Not sure I'd say Simmonds is the better all around player yet but he could be some day soon. I'd take Hartnell in the defensive end and I think he has a better shot. I haven't seen enough of Simmonds in front of the opposing net this season...hope that changes tonight.

Boston's GM is in the building tonight scouting for Team Canada, primarily looking at Giroux.

Hopefully he can finally step up & give him a good showing.

Still not a fan of these lines, especially the number one. I would rather see something along the lines of

Hartnell-Giroux-Voracek
Read-Lecavalier-Simmonds
Schenn-Couturier-Rinaldo
Talbot-Hall-Rosehill

but as others have mentioned, maybe a few full practices under their belts will work wonders. The top line, certainly, can't look any worse than it has.

Hartnell needs to focus on getting an open shooting lane when he sets up in the slot. Giroux has fed him probably a half dozen passes there and I think every single one has been blocked by a defenseman. They just need one to get through and I think they'll get the monkey off their back.

My local team once scored seven goals on Greiss, I've had a hard time seeing him as a legit NHL-goalie ever since.

He played against the Flyers for San Jose and had a strong effort.

Agh. Giroux's line is forever chasing the puck.

We've sustained more pressure already tonight than we did last game, total.
