Today's probable goaltenders:
Flyers Projected Lineup
Kind of hard to project the lineup with Jagr's absence. Instead, we'll just note that Andreas Nodl could return to fill that spot on the bench, leaving Jody Shelley as the healthy scratch.
Injuries: Erik Gustafsson (wrist), Brayden Schenn (foot)
Winnipeg Projected Lineup
Kane - Little - Burmistrov
Ladd - Antropov - Wellwood
Glass - Slater - Thorburn
Jaffray - Stapleton - Wheeler
Oduya - Byfuglien
Stuart - Bogosian
Kulda - Pavelec
Arctic Ice Hockey notes that Eric Fehr could make his Jets debut today, which would shuffle the lines and likely push Jason Jaffray out of the mix.
Injuries: Ron Hainsey (upper), Derek Meech (lower), Randy Jones (ankle), Tobias Enstrom (collarbone), Festerling (upper)
Questions to Answer
- How do the Flyers replace Jaromir Jagr?
- Whoever gets back into the lineup for Jagr, be it Shelley or Nodl, how do they look? Been a while since either of them played.
- Defensively, the Flyers were horrible against Winnipeg last time out. I mean, obviously. What adjustments are made, and are those adjustments anything more than Oh, Chris Pronger Is Here?
- The Jets are another team that takes a lot of penalties. Conversely, the Flyers PP has languished a bit lately. Seems like a good recipe, no?
- How is Ilya Bryzgalov received from fans in Winnipeg that he insulted while with the Coyotes?
