Place: Wells Fargo Center
News & Notes:
- Hawks are coming off a 4-1 win over NYI in Chicago on Saturday
- Patrick Kane has a league-high 6 points (3G 3A) to date
- Rookie Artemi Panarin is a player to watch; he has 4 points playing alongside Kane and Anisimov
- Flyers are coming off of a 1-0 win over FLA on Monday, the first of the Dave Hakstol era
- The lineup is expected to remain the same from Monday, as RJ Umberger is still dealing with a UBI and Radko Gudas put together a solid performance
- Steve Mason will participate in the morning skate; it is unknown who will get the call in net at this time
In addition, the Flyers will be honoring Kimmo Timonen tonight. It still gives me chills when I see pictures and videos of Kimmo holding the Cup over his head. He is one of my all-time favorite Flyers, and my only regret is that he couldn't win it all in Philadelphia.
I wish Kimmo all the best in his retirement from the game, and I look forward to seeing him within the Flyers organization at some point in the future.
