  • A stunning seven-game losing streak has put the Philadelphia Flyers in danger of falling from first in the Atlantic Division to out of the playoff race. The Ottawa Senators, meanwhile, have only needed three consecutive defeats to drop out of sole possession of the Eastern Conference lead. Both teams hope to end their respective skids Tuesday night when they meet at Scotiabank Place.

Who will be his (Giroux) linemates?
JS: "We don't know yet. I have an idea, but I don't want to speculate. We may even look at him with a guy like Danny Briere. Both of them think the game very well. He may play with a variety of people, but he will get the opportunity to play with some very good players.
Giroux's status:
Quote:
http://www.courierpostonline.com/app.../1017/sports04

According to Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren, once an NHL team falls under 12 healthy forwards -- and the Flyers dropped below that number with injuries to Joffrey Lupul (right high ankle sprain), Simon Gagne (concussion), Steve Downie (concussion) and Denis Tolpeko (concussion) -- it can recall a player under contract from his junior team. Because of an agreement between the NHL and Canada's major junior leagues, Giroux can remain with the Flyers only if there are no other players to take his place and his recall does not conflict with his junior team's schedule. Giroux currently leads the Quebec League with 33 goals and 55 assists for 88 points in 47 games with the Gatineau Olympiques. He is expected to play on one of the Flyers' top lines tonight and could see time on the power play, where he's scored eight goals for the Olympiques this season.

Stevens said he has different possibilities to consider and Giroux/Briere is just one of many that could be tried even during the game.

Great job MSE.

I have no expectations whatsoever going into this game, good or bad. I'm looking forward to seeing Giroux though. And hoping to see a commitment to defense, and energy for 60 minutes.

I think this one's going to be interesting. Cannon's sure gonna have his hands full with that top line and man is our injury list growing. Well, whatever happens, happens; I'm going to try not to stress over this one.

Here's a gem from the sens board.

I think Downie came down with a case of the "Ottawa Flu." He should be fully recovered by Wednesday


Anyway, can't wait to see Giroux. Slick passing and creativity for the win!

Haha, I guess that Ottawa flu is spreading in the locker room fast. And has been dormant there for awhile.


Great G-T-D-M-S-E!

I am hoping that no one gets injured this game, that is all. Also Alffy shoots the puck at Cote and gets the beating of his life. GO FLYERS!

We are going to dominate this game. Hatty by Hartnell.

Oh, hell, throw in a couple Flyer concussions while you're at it. Keep the status quo.

Flyers finally with a complete and utter meltdown, with 3-4 trades happening by the end of the 2nd intermission.

8-0 Sens.

Be prepared for a brand new team by next game.

First 10,000 fans get 5 Upper Deck Sens cards. I predict most will be on the ice after the Flyers win 6-1.

Ottawa can't be happy that Montreal has caught them in points, this is not going to be an easy game for Philly.

7 - 2 Sens. Flyers are on their way of matching their 35 game without a loss streak with a 35 games without a win streak.

Good job with the line combinations. I believe Giroux was on the line with Carter and Upshall in preseason. It's funny how hatcher gets hurt and Kukkonen will probably still sit out. Maybe if Kukkonen was sent down to the Phantoms and Stevens went back to coaching AHL where he belongs than maybe Kukkonen can get some respect
