Hmm, so not only do we have former Flyer Ville Leino centering the first line, but Roy is at the point on the power play, with Gragnani out of the equation. Might we get a Mike Weber sighting? Lindy wouldn’t say, but it wouldn’t be a huge surprise. The Flyers come in without Danny Briere who is nursing sore ribs. Sorry, boo-birds, your ownly chance to boo him will be when they announce the scratches. Pronger is also out after nearly having his eye scooped out.
I know that it’s the first meeting after the Flyers eliminated the Sabres from the playoffs, but I just don’t feel any great anger at them for it. I mean, I always dislike the Flyers, and that didn’t increase it any. Maybe it’s the hangover from the Pegula effect. Leino will doubtless have some butterflies playing his old mates, perhaps moreso because it hasn’t gone that well here.
It’s another 7:30pm start time tonight, and it’s on Versus, so plan accordingly.
