Behind Enemy Lines: In Lou We Trust
In the second to last preseason tune-up of the year, the Flyers travel to North Jersey to take on the Devils in the back end of a home-and-home. Brian Boucher is expected to play the entire game in goal while Martin Brodeur will play the entire game at the other end. The Flyers have not released a lineup for tonight's game, but the Devils will be lining up a roster closer to what we'll see from them all year. Zach Parise, Jamie Langenbrunner, Travis Zajac, Brendan Shanahan and Jay Pandolfo will all take the ice tonight for New Jersey. Tough guy Andrew Peters will also be in the lineup, so it'll be interesting to see if the Flyers counter that move.
The biggest question surrounding the Flyers tonight is the status of defenseman Randy Jones. Several sources reported yesterday that the Flyers would be waiving Jones by the end of the weekend, but as of now it hasn't happened. Will Jones be in the lineup tonight? UPDATE: Jones has been put on waivers, according to CSNPhilly.com. Are his expected replacements, Danny Syvret and Ole-Kristian Tollefsen, in tonight's game? Hopefully we'll get a long glimpse at them tonight.
We shall see. 7 PM puck drop from Newark. No TV coverage in Philly or NJ, but you can listen to the game at 610wip.com.
