Flyers vs. Capitals: Finally, the preseason ends

Bruce Bennett

Finally, we've reached the end of the preseason. There are still some very distinct roster spots up for grabs, and we'll expect Scott Laughton and Chris Vandevelde in the lineup as they battle for those spots.

On defense there are still decisions to be made too, with Erik Gustafsson, Nicklas Grossmann, Andrej Meszaros, Hal Gill and uhh, I guess Bruno Gervais battling for the final spots on the Flyers blueline. Will they all be in the lineup tonight? Will one preseason game really make enough of a difference for any of them? Who knows.

Ray Emery is expected to start in goal for the Flyers, and Michal Neuvirth will be in goal for Washington.
