Lineup in Philly

Here’s what we’ll be looking at tonight in Philadelphia:

43-Fleischmann, 19-Backstrom, 38-Klepis
50-Motzko, 15-Gordon, 21-Laich
87-Brashear, 39-Steckel, 27-Clymer
56-Bourque, 16-Sutherby, 10-Bradley

26-Morrisonn, 23-Jurcina
4-Erskine, 44-Eminger
78-Boumedienne, 9-Pollock

1-Johnson, 37 Kolzig

Johnson will start and go all the way in goal. Lots of bubble guys in the lineup today, so effort should not be a problem against the Flyers.

And because I know you all want to know, here are the pertinent times and dates for upcoming roster machinations around the league (Anaheim and Los Angeles notwithstanding). The final time for players to be put on waivers before the final roster is set is Monday Oct. 1 at noon. Those players will have 24 hours to clear waivers, and then the final 23-man rosters are due on Tuesday, Oct. 2 at 3 p.m.

Also, just got an update from Johnny Walton up in Bingo where the Bears are playing the Binghamton Senators in a morning preseason contest (11 a.m. start). He reports that Hershey is up 2-0 after the first frame. Daren Machesney has made a dozen stops while Scott Barney and Kyle Wilson have provided the lamp-lighters.

I am awaiting the arrival of the Corey Masisak chariot. He, Tarik and myself are car-pooling up to Philly this afternoon. More from Wachovia Center later.

UPDATE: Bears win 4-2, Wilson adds an empty netter for his second of the game, Paul McIlveen had the other at even strength. Sasha Pokulok had three assists in the game.

    An all energy roster tonight. What if we win with this?!?

  2. Mark Says:

    Mike – would they prefer to send a guy like Steckel down to play every night, or keep him around as a healthy scratch, and get in to a game or two a week?

    Thanks for the Hershey update; a nice start for Pokulok

    no surprise seeing Wilson’s name in the boxscore

  4. Jordana Says:

    It’ll be interesting to watch Backstrom focus on centering a line tonight.

  5. Kurt Says:

    A lot of guys tonight will have a lot to prove. Should be an interesting night, especially with Philly dealing with the Downie incident.

    Still, the Flyers looked damn good against the Rangers, and will probably be a threat all year.

    Looking at the Flyers’ lineup, looks like it could be a rough game.
