Greetings:

 

Well, we have a matinee against the Islanders, who give up nearly a goal less than we do per game.  They are favorites (-140), and win about 2/3 of the time in that role.  

 

Here is lineup, per NHL.com.  It looks like a repeat of the Nashville game:

 

Islanders projected lineup
Anders Lee -- Brock Nelson -- Anthony Beauvillier

Zach Parise -- Mathew Barzal -- Oliver Wahlstrom

Josh Bailey -- Jean-Gabriel Pageau -- Kyle Palmieri

Matt Martin -- Casey Cizikas -- Cal Clutterbuck

Adam Pelech -- Ryan Pulock

Zdeno Chara -- Noah Dobson

Andy Greene -- Scott Mayfield

Ilya Sorokin

Semyon Varlamov

Scratched: Ross Johnston, Sebastian Aho, Kieffer Bellows

Injured: None

Flyers projected lineup

James van Riemsdyk -- Derick Brassard -- Cam Atkinson

Joel Farabee -- Kevin Hayes -- Gerry Mayhew

Oskar Lindblom -- Morgan Frost -- Travis Konecny

Max Willman -- Patrick Brown -- Zack MacEwen

Ivan Provorov -- Cam York

Travis Sanheim -- Rasmus Ristolainen

Keith Yandle -- Justin Braun

Carter Hart

Martin Jones

Scratched: Kevin Connauton, Nick Seeler, Claude Giroux

Injured: Ryan Ellis (lower body), Nate Thompson (shoulder), Scott Laughton (concussion)

 

Mayhew was waived, so his status may change.  Brassard and Braun are showing in the lineup despite trade rumors.  

This is the official start of the post-Giroux era.

Good news though.

 

However i will say Braun is playing some of his best hockey since he has been in Philly right now. Good for him he has been a good soldier. I wish him well.

Braun won’t be going to the Leafs, anyways.  They just acquired Giordano from Seattle.  Not sure what other teams are looking for defensive depth.

Zach MacEwen is everywhere on his shifts hunting down the puck, whipping it on net whenever he can - throwing his body into every check...Perfect 4th liner.

 

I wish we could transplant his energy and drive into Morgan Frost. Supposedly Frost is playing center today but you'd never know it.

MacEwen got high sticked in the last game and it broke his tooth.  The ref only called a 2-min penalty on the Sens.  A little while later, he spit the rest of the tooth out.

 

Well there went the Flyer's Cup chances right there...

 

 

:rage:

Didn’t watch a second of the game. I guess Hayes is playing better since his “infected groin” finally healed. 
 

I assume the Flyers had to face their #1 nemesis, an empty net during the final

minutes? Did they even get out if their own zone and take a crack at scoring on the empty net?

Idiots. Did they keep Atkinson, Brassard, JVR, Yandle, Jones, Braun, Brown out of the line up today for trade purposes?

 

They didn't have time for callus the Phantoms didn't get back in town till 3 am this morning and they had to ice a team.

 

I'm holding out hope some of this dead weight can still be moved...

I think Koneckny got close from 150 feet away but they played tenacious D and Hart was great. I also think this was the Isldd with game in 7 days, and they may have been drained.
