Quick game thread today as the Flyers cap off a weekend back-to-back with their first game of the year against the Columbus Blue Jackets, who as you may have heard recently had a very long winning streak. They’ve since lost two in a row, including a gut-punch of a loss last night to the Rangers, so we’ll see how they look tonight.

Today’s game is on TCN and can be streamed on CSNPhilly.com through your cable provider. Elsewhere, you can view this one on Fox Sports Ohio, NHL.TV, or NHL Center Ice.

No word on lineup changes, but after yesterday’s strong showing from the Flyers we’ll assume that the only change made is in net, where In terms of lineup changes, Roman Lyubimov will be back in the lineup today in Boyd Gordon’s place. In addition, Steve Mason will likely start against his old team.
