Philly-Buffalo Info

Here’s some information for today’s game against the Flyers at the First Niagara Center. I’ll update it as the day the goes along.

 

Update (12:43): Brayden Schenn won’t be playing because of an “upper-body injury” so Harry Zolnierczyk will play in his place. The projected forward lineup for Philly tonight has been updated. Also, Cody McCormick passed his baseline test, but will not play tonight. My guess is that his conditioning’s not quite up to snuff just yet. That means that Corey Tropp will play.

 

-The game will be on Versus at 7:30. (Ugh.) You’ll have to listen to the game on WGR if you want to hear RJ.

-Chris Pronger’s on LTIR due to knee surgery and won’t play. The same goes for forward, Blair Betts and defensemen, Erik Gustafsson and Andreas Lilja.

-Jody Shelley (F), Matt Walker (D), and Harry Zolnierczyk (F) will probably be healthy scratches.

-Andrej Meszaros has a shoulder injury, but is expected to play. James Van Riemsdyk (UBI) and Danny Briere (Virus) are expected to play as well, despite their ailments.

-Joe Finley will still play for Jordan Leopold. Finley has barely averaged over six-minutes of ice time in his last two games, so expect Ruff to ride his other five guys.

-Jochen Hecht will play and Cody McCormick is a possibility for tomorrow after passing his concussion tests. Corey Tropp would go back to Rochester if McCormick can play.

-Paul Gaustad won’t play because of the injury he sustained during the scrum in the Nashville-Buffalo game. Nothing’s changed with Kaleta, Boyes, Weber, and Myers.
