If this picture is an indication, it looks like Boucher is going back to his Phantoms mask.



Opening night is tonight up against the Bruce Springsteen concert. In other words, parking is going to suck.

Over/under for attendance 4500.

Flyers prospect Steve Downie was officially a Flyer Thursday, but by today might be a Phantom again. Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren put Downie on the roster for this opener - officially he was a healthy scratch, though he was in South Jersey at the time - and so it counted as a game against his 20-game NHL suspension.

Since AHL president Dave Andrews ruled that his league would honor the suspension for one month until Nov. 3, Downie has no place to play between now and then. So the Flyers will try to at least count down his suspension term while he has an extended practice season.

"We had a couple of different options we could pursue," Holmgren said of the Downie situation. "But for now we thought we could pick and choose (games). When Nov. 3 comes around, we hope we've chipped quite a few games off it."
By Nov 3 he will have 12 of the NHL games off the suspension.

After that, the only days in which Flyer and Phantom games coincide are Flyer game 20, vs Carolina on Nov 21.

Downie could play with the Phantoms 6 times, being recalled and sent down in between. A lucky bit of scheduling there.

If he sits out NHL Game 20 on Nov 21, he could be back up with the Flyers if they want by Nov 23.

Assisted. Zingoni got the goal. Matsumoto with 1, Reid with 2. Phantoms up 4-2 in the 3rd.

Sheesh, Stewart on Norfolk got a Spearing Game Misconduct. Wonder what that was about.

4-3 final. Reid, 1st star. Boucher, 2nd. Attendance: 6864. Wow.

I'm impressed with the 6864 attendance. If anyone was there, is that legit or is that a typical inflated Phantoms number?

This isn't the same Norfolk team the Phantoms have had to deal with in the past as Tampa is their parent club this season. I expect Norfolk to be towards the bottom of the standings. Regardless a win to start the season is a good thing.

Rejean Beauchemin was assigned to Dayton of the ECHL yesterday, leaving Boucher and Munroe as the Phantoms 2 goalies.

Anyone have any idea of what happened to Jeremy Deschenes? He isn't on Wheeling's opening night roster.

I thought I saw somewhere that he was recalled to the Phantoms but I don't know why he would have been.

There is no transaction on the AHL website nor is he on the Phantoms roster at the moment.

He isn't on the Wheeling Nailers roster and was reassigned to the Phantoms, according to the ECHL Website.

I wonder if he was assigned to the Phantoms while the Flyers look for somewhere to put him for the season?
