Emery is expected to start on Wednesday vs. the Pens.
Emery allowed three goals on 38 shots in a loss to the Habs on October 11th; his only start of the season. He recorded a win last Saturday in relief of Steve Mason, but with the Flyers playing their second game in two nights and taking on a great Penguins team, it is hard to have faith in Emery as a reliable spot-start tonight.
Coburn (lower-body) ended up being a late scratch on Tuesday.
Coburn took part in warmups and it appeared as if he was going to return to the lineup, but he ended up missing his fifth straight game with a lower-body injury. He could return Wednesday vs. the Penguins.
Coburn (lower-body) is a game-time decision on Tuesday.
Coburn has missed the last four games with a lower-body injury but was once again on the ice with the Flyers this morning. He originally skated on the fourth pair, which suggests he won't play, but then participated in penalty kill drills which suggests otherwise. So, we will have to wait until pregame warmups.
Mason was pulled after allowed four goals on 18 shots in the Flyers comeback win over the Stars on Saturday. Despite Ray Emery leading them to the W, the Flyers will go back to Mason tonight in Chicago. He is still searching for his first win of the season, but it won't come easy tonight on the road vs. the Hawks.
Mason allowed three goals on 28 shots in a loss to the Ducks on Tuesday. He has yet to chalk up a win while posting a 3.29 GAA and .884 SV% in his first three starts. It will not get any easier on Mason tonight when he takes on Jamie Benn, Tyler Seguin and the Dallas Stars.
Coburn (upper-body) could return to the lineup on Saturday.
Coburn was back on the ice for practice on Friday, but the Flyers won't make a decision on his status for tomorrow's game until after the morning skate. He skated with Andrew MacDonald this morning, which is a good sign that he is ready.
Coburn (lower-body) was back on the ice for practice on Wednesday.
Coburn did not take part in line rushes originally, but did towards the end of the skate, which suggests he could be back for Saturday's clash with the Stars. With two more days before their next game, the Flyers have time to take a good look at Coburn before deciding if he is ready to go.
Coburn will miss his third straight game tonight, but getting back on the ice tomorrow would be a big step for the Flyers defenseman who was originally expected to miss a lengthy period of time. There is no timetable for his return, but the injury is not nearly as serious as the Flyers originally feared.
Mason gave up five goals on 25 shoos in a 6-4 loss to the Devils last Thursday. Ray Emery looked sharp on Saturday, but the Flyers will go back to Mason tonight at home vs. Anaheim. It is not an easy matchup whatsoever and on a busy nit across the NHL take a look at your other matchups first.
Grossmann (illness) is on the ice for the Flyers morning skate.
Grossmann missed yesterday's practice with a stomach virus, but is back on the ice this morning and should play tonight vs. Anaheim. He has no points with a plus-1 rating while average 18:31 TOI in three games.
Lecavalier was off to a nice start to the season, with one goal and two assists in the first three games, but will miss two weeks with the lower-body injury. He will likely land on IR for a brief period of time. Expect the Flyers to recall a forward from Lehigh Valley (AHL).
Raffl will replace Brayden Schenn on the flyers top line Saturday.
The Flyers are off to a slow start at 0-2 so they have shaken up all three of their top lines in search of more offense. Whoever is playing with Giroux and Voracek is bound to produce at a higher level but Raffl is not a great fantasy option because his job on the top line may be short lived.
