The Philadelphia Flyers will complete their four game road trip tonight in Buffalo when they face the Sabres at 7:00 pm EST. These teams enter tonight's game with different lineups from their first matchup in early November. See how they matchup.
Yes, the Philadelphia Flyers showed something in their small west coast swing last week. Yes, they came back against the lowly Anaheim Ducks and won. Yes, they started strong and cruised to a win in Phoenix over the Coyotes. Yes, the team took care of business and did what they were supposed to do.
Was it a litmus test? In terms of the ability to win on the road after a long layoff and a plane trip longer than one in-flight movie, it was.
Zac Rinaldo has quickly established himself as the physical presence on this year's team. TCL's Matt Brigidi had the opportunity to talk with Rinaldo about his hitting game, his influences and his future. Check out what he said.
In their first game on a short west coast swing, the Philadelphia Flyers looked awful. They turned the puck over. They blew defensive coverage in front of their net. Goalie Ilya Bryzgalov looked like he was 'lost in the woods' yet again.
Somehow, some way, the Flyers came back and defeated the Anaheim Ducks 4-3 in overtime.
The Philadelphia Flyers head out on a West coast trip this weekend. Their first stop is in Anaheim to face the flightless Ducks at 10:00 pm EST. It will be the debut of coach Bruce Boudreau with his new team and the question is, just how much will the coaching change effect this game tonight ?
