2. POWER STREAK
The Flyers will look to make it six straight games with a power-play goal today… They have goals in five straight games on the man-advantage, going 8-for-20 for 40 percent in that span.
3. SLOW STARTS
The Devils have scored 75 percent of their goals in the second & third periods. They have just 29 goals in the first period, compared to 56 in the second and 41 in the third period.
4. Player to watch DEVILS: David Clarkson
Clarkson has recorded three goals and five points in his last two games for the Devils… In his last six games, he has eight points (4G-4A) and currently ranks second on the team in goals scored (19).
5. Player(s) to watch FLYERS: The Rookies
Flyers rookies have contributed at least one goal in 13 of the team’s last 15 games, including 10 of the last 11… Matt Read tallied the game-winning goal in the Flyers last game, a 4-1 win vs. Nashville on Thursday.
PROJECTED LINEUPS (subject to change)
Hartnell - Giroux - Jagr
Rinaldo - Schenn - Simmonds
Talbot - Couturier - Voracek
Sestito - Read - Zolnierczyk/Shelley
Timonen - Coburn
Carle - Bourdon
Lilja - Meszaros
Parise - Elias - Kovalchuk
Sykora - Zubrus - Clarkson
Ponikarovsky - Josefson - Bernier
Boulton - Mills - Janssen
Volchenkov - Toarmina
Greene - Fayne
Salvador - Foster
Parise dives and gets the Devils a 2 man advantage which they score on.
Simmonds avoids a big hit from Boulton which draws a crowd and a penalty on Boulton....id say boulton vs shelley or Sestito is a lock....
End of the period after the refs gave the Devils another goal on a blatant missed call, Simmonds and Hartnell are pissed and going after Volchenkov and Zubrus.
lol flyers really got smacked around today!
I thought it was a nice gesture from the Devils to spot Philly 4 goals in the 3rd. :)
were horrible and dictated the flow of the game from the outset.
Everyone in the Devils lineup besides Kovy had their gloves cemented on.
As Lavy would say, this game lacked jam.
2yt4u, your logo needs more wrist. they are soft.
I'm sure the Flyers were offering fights left and right and the Devils were too scared to drop them. It's not like they were up 6-0 or anything....:scared:
