Need to keep the pressure on chasing teams and a win tonight could kill the Flyers hopes. They'll be short one starter on D because of a suspension. Not sure about CJ's line changes but I assume Dano is back in.

Danault confirmed in

so we'll probably see

Drouin - Danault -Gallagher

Tatar - Domi - Shaw

Byron - JK - Armia

4th Line is the question

Lehkonen/Thompson for sure ...

I suspect not ... Drouin - Danault - Gallagher were showing some chemistry as was Tatar/Domi/Shaw

They were but he reunited DomiDrouin for last game & a period or 2 before that so...   Guess we'll see.   Im an advocate of getting all your top players used to each other so that when the playoff comes around you can deal with injuries or the potential need to break up lines for matching better.  I dont like crazy "Therrible blendering" but our top 6-8 guys are all pretty solid so i dont see a huge concern mixing and matching for now.

Last 15 games Flyers are 12-2-1.

Yeah they've definitely turned it around lately.

Yeah. Just when you think they've seen the light.

In farness Peca doesnt seem to bring much besides speed and poor hudon looks lost out there (cant blame him it seems like they are asking to play a game that is not suited to his skills) but either still has the potential to be better than Dlo in pretty ever facet except skate-size.

Peca is in, but I'm still curious about what Jake Evans could do... all the more important to have a Hudon or Evans or talent player in over D Lo or Weise when you have a Lehkonen already on the line. Skill helps skill.

Peca in for DLO???
