Gearing up for a visit by the Flyers tonight, who are coming off a rousing 4-3 SO victory in Tampa Bay on Tuesday; Live Game Thread at 6pm. A few notes to cover before then...
- From the Words You Never Want To Hear From A Top Prospect category: "Maybe (coach DeBoer) is showing he doesn't trust me. But I want to be in Florida. I want to play for Florida." Thus spake Michal Repik.
- He's no Stephen Weiss, but newly-acquired Bruins' forward Chris Kelly may just take Boston off the market at the center position. Hello Ray Shero...
- Fact: David Booth has collected 10 points (5 goals) in 15 career games against Philadelphia.
- Eerie Fact: Steve Bernier has 6 points (all assists) in 6 games vs those very same Flyers, with a +6 to boot.
- Cheery Fact: It's game #1,000 for Cory Stillman this evening.
- Defenseman Bryan Allen is 1 point away from 100 in his NHL career. Fellow blueliner Dennis Wideman is 5 away from 200.
