Have the Whalers ever beaten the Flyers by more than two goals?

Because technically that would make it an error.

Cannon needs to have a big game. He's been kinda down and out lately. You offer him $5.75 mil/year, he better start scoring.

Can't wait! Hope I get the Carolina feed on Center Ice, cause it's always a good laugh. The announcer loves the word "Punishment."

He had three assists two games ago (and a butt-goal). I wouldn't really cally that down and out lately.

If Hatcher is in (as reports seem to indicate) and Picard was called up then that leaves eight D-men when you include Rory. There is the outside chance of dressing seven D-men like Carolina did last night.

Is Kukkonen 100% out tonight? Because that means I don't wear his jersey tonight.


Cote doesn't need to play because Carolina doesn't have anyone who will fight him.

Nothing definitive but all signs point to a Hatcher return and the assumption is Picard was recalled to play. If that is the case, that means a 7th D-man would have to dress if Kukkonen was to play or someone (Jones?) else would have to sit.

This is the closest to a specific answer I have seen:

http://www.delcotimes.com/WebApp/app..._Story_1271909

And he’s right about the lack of an injury situation. Derian Hatcher, who missed two games with a tired right knee, is expected back in the lineup tonight as well.

To make room for Picard, the Flyers sent center Ryan Potulny down to the Phantoms.

With the Flyers now carrying eight defensemen, two healthy players need to be scratched.

Rory Fitzpatrick seems like an obvious choice for one of the two, but the other is a bit murky. And Flyers coach John Stevens wouldn’t commit to a name just yet.

“That’s a decision we’ll make (today) before the game when we know for certain about Hatcher,” said Stevens.
