Defensmen pairings in Flyers

Could you please write me, how do defensemen in Flyers play? In which pairs do they play(mostly) and, also, I would like to know about their sides (left or right side)...I guess it depends on player shot hand, but don't know exactly...
Who plays (mostly) in PP/PK?

Yesterday it was:
Timonen - Coburn
Carle - Väänänen
Sbisa - Alberts

However, that might have only been for yesterday because Timonen - Coburn worked very well last year in the playoffs against the Caps. Before that we had:
Coburn - Carle
Timonen - Väänänen
Sbisa - Alberts

However, our defense is Subject to change as Randy Jones is about to come back, possibly today, and Ryan Parent could be back soon too.

On the power play we had Coburn - Timonen and Sbisa - Carle if I'm not mistaken, but that might change too when Brière returns in early January. Then Mike Richards might man the blue line on the first unit.

Not sure about the PK defensemen because I see almost every D out on the PK a time or another.

Jones will probably get time on the 2nd PP unit. When he's back.

I'm hoping it wasn't because Stevens wanted them to defend Ovechkin. You could see how much more effective Coburn was as a player. I thought Carle-Vaananen looked good as well, and I was pleasantly surprised with Sbisa-Alberts.
