Yeah, and they're going to try and get the Sutter line out against Giroux as much as possible I would assume. The line matching could ultimately determine this one.

Tbh though Sutter has been pretty poor in the 3C role compared to Staal, both so far this year and last year as well... in fact, Giroux has been facing tougher defensive minutes than Sutter and been doing better.

The best linematching for the Flyers will be:

G on Crosby
Couts on Malkin
Lecav on Sutter

But yeh, doubt Pitt just let that happen.

The NHL is pathetic. A nationally televised game and they make Philly travel to Pittsburgh on the second night of a back to back while giving the Penguins 3 days off? Absolutely ridiculous.

Eh, the scheduling generally has a way of working itself out. It does suck that they're playing the Penguins on the second day of a back to back, but they'll get the tough one eventually too.

Flyers last night seemed to be in a rythm..hopefully the layoff will be a detriment to Pitt and the Flyers can jump them and Mason can hold the fort if Pitt turns it up.

I think you gotta go Mason tonight even though its a b2b. Mason wasn't challenged TOO much last night.

Despite yesterday's great win, it didn't do much for our position in the standings, we need to keep it going. Nothing better than a win against these fruitcakes. Get 'er done

What's kind of interesting stat

Pittsburgh, 17 Games, 40 Goals Against
Philadelphia, 17 games, 44 Goals Against

Its the offense that was losing these games. If and we still have to wait and see, but if this offense has found its gear, they are back to being a good hockey team.

That includes that 7-0 debacle as well. Interesting indeed. I hope the forwards get their **** together. Last night was certainly promising.

It's like Hartnell and Voracek remembered that they can score goals again.

If they play anything like they did last night they will be right in this with a good chance to pull out a win.

Revenge game, back 2 back statement game. A lot on the line here and the G line is finally waking up at the right time.

Better see Mason out there.

Emery is starting tonight.

Also, Raffl remains out of the lineup with the flu per ASF:

No lineup changes for the #Flyers tonight except one - Emery will start in goal. Raffl (flu), Gill and Meszaros (healthy) are the scratches.

Don't like this move at all. Mason in a groove. What's wrong with starting Emery in WPG on Friday? Don't get it.

So they put the goalie with the lateral movement of an 80 year old in net against a team that likes to go cross ice a lot. This ought to be good.

Probably because it is the second half of a back-to-back.

Obviously. But it's not unheard of for a goalie to play both games in a b2b situation. Especially given the Flyers current situation in the standings. Stupid move. It's November, not March.

I gotta agree with you here. Mason has been the saving grace of this team. Emery has looked pretty shaky in almost every game he's been in.

Eh, I don't mind the Emery move. At least if the Flyers lose we can just use the excuse that it was because Mason wasn't in.

Ehhh... if they were going to split the games between the goalies, I would have rathered Emery play Ottawa (even though the Sens were leading the East in goals per game).

This times 1000. Don't like this decision at all

But at least Mason goes in Wpg where a win makes my life a lot easier

Honestly, considering how we shut down Ottawa, who can be very good offensively, I think we shouldn't have too many problems if we play the same kind of game. Emery could let 2 in, but I have a feeling we can light up MAF. Plus, we have a great record in the CEC.
