- Lines remain the same for tonight’s contest versus the Flyers. When you snatch victory out of Calgary by five goals, something’s going right. This is the only meeting between the Flyers and the Oilers this season. The Oilers look to make it a two-game winning streak tonight, while the Flyers are also looking for two. Edmonton is 5-4-1 in their last ten, Philly is 4-5-1.

- I like Ilya Bryzgalov because he’s quirky as hell. I’m sure that something is lost in translation here, but you get the general gist of what’s happening on this fine September afternoon. Needless to say, he’ll be starting tonight’s game for the Flyers, as he looks to find a rhythm towards the end of February. Bryzgalov is 21-11-6 with 2 shutouts, but his SV% limps in at just .898, which isn’t very good for a guy who just signed a nine year deal at 51 million clams.
- Quick, who leads the Flyers in points? That’s right, it’s Claude Giroux with 70. (23-47-70) in 55 GP. At well over one point per game, 90 points is well within his reach.
- THE NUGE has been skating as an extra at team practices for some time now. I’m not sure if he’ll be ready for Saturday’s game versus the Coyotes, but I wouldn’t be too surprised to see him back in action next week.
