Believe it or not there's a game tonight - 830est

DALLAS (Ticker) -- Coach Ken Hitchcock visits his former team for the first time Monday night as the Philadelphia Flyers face the Dallas Stars.

Hitchcock coached Dallas for parts of seven seasons before getting fired 50 games into the 2001-02 season. He compiled a 277-166-60 record in 503 regular-season games with the Stars, reaching the playoffs five times.

The Stars made consecutive appearances in the Stanley Cup Finals in 1999 and 2000. His team beat the Buffalo Sabres in 1999 and lost to New Jersey the next year.

Hitchcock faced the Stars last December 17 at Philadelphia and the teams skated to 2-2 tie. Stars center Mike Modano suffered a concussion after being knocked head-first into the boards by Jeremy Roenick in the first period.

The Flyers enter this matchup one point ahead New Jersey for the lead in the Atlantic Division and three behind Toronto for first place in the Eastern Conference.

Philadelphia fell to 0-2-0-1 on a season-high eight-game road trip after blowing a late lead in Saturday's 3-2 overtime loss to Colorado. The Flyers got a shorthanded goal from Sami Kapanen and a third-period tally from Radovan Somik.

Jeff Hackett made 28 saves and started and lost his sixth straight decision as the Flyers fell to 1-3-2-3 in their last nine contests.

Dallas is trying to extend its season-high four-game winning streak and is 6-1-1 in its last eight games.

Modano has two goals and four assists on a four-game points streak. He scored eight seconds into Saturday's 4-3 win at Columbus as Dallas moved to 13-2-2 when he registers a point this season.

Dallas is 5-1-2 in its last eight home meetings with Philadelphia.

Is Esche still out, or can we expect him in net tonight?

From philadelphiaflyers.com:

For Philadelphia, it is unknown who will be in net as Robert Esche has been out of the lineup for most of the month of December with a pulled groin. It is likely that Esche will attempt to play tonight after skating in practice the last couple of sessions.

So, hopefully we get to see Esche tonight, I'm also hopeful that Seidenberg will make his season debut tonight or tomorrow night.

Hitchcock stated in another article that Comrie has looked good in practices and will increase his ice time from the 6:26 he played against Colorado.

A couple weeks ago Modano couldn't score to save his life....is it just me, or do NHL teams woes seem to end right before we play them?
Hope Esche goes tonight and the defence settles down and sticks to the game plan.
We need some of our exp. "stars" to start scoring again. The JR,Recchi, Amonte line hasn't done much since the loss to the Senators. Of course than was when most of our problems started!
