    IGT: Colorado Avalanche at Philadelphia Flyers

    Time: 7:00pm
    Place: Wells Fargo Center

    News & Notes:

    - COL is coming off a 4-3 SO win over Toronto
    - After a slow start, young COL star Nathan MacKinnon is now tied with Matt Duchene for the team lead in points with 10; both have 4 goals and 6 assists
    - COL is 4-6-5 this season, a far cry from their 13-0-1 start last year
    - Flyers are coming off of a 4-1 win over FLA on Thursday; it was their 2nd straight win and 2nd straight win by that margin
    - Braydon Coburn will make his return to the lineup tonight; he will replace Carlo Colaiacovo and be paired with Luke Schenn
    - Steve Mason will make his 4th straight start; he has raised his season SV% to .911 over the past 3 games

    Flyers don't play again until next Friday, so it looks like Berube is trying to ease Coburn into a game here by pairing him with Schenn, see how he holds up.

    Kinda wish it was Schultz sitting; I liked how CC and Schenn were playing together and I REALLY want to see Coburn and MDZ together.

    But Schultz is higher on the depth chart, and CC can probably use a little more conditioning.

    Lol very impressive. He keeps this up, he'd join the untouchable list... Which matt read has played his way off of imo.

    What a shot by G.

    Couts line was great 5v5. Schenn has really been playing well. Looks completely engaged.

    Mason looks sharp.

    Coburn looks pretty good so far. Not much rusty.

    MacKinnon play wasnt malicious but it was stupid. No need to crosscheck in that situatiom even if it wasnt hard.

    And Giroux.....um yeah that was ****in dirty.


    Voracek now 8 game point streak.

    Schenn deserved that goal....Great play and hustle by Read to set it up....

    Voracek and Giroux are just imposing their will on Colorado...it's not fair at this point.

    And, in much more depressing news, Ghost is done for the season with a torn ACL. Very unfortunate.

    That's insane. Stupid Crosby. I don't understand how Buffalo is so bad....

    Less a different look and more Brayden Schenn in the box with a fighting major.

    Flyers are pretty much dominating, particularly the top 2 lines. Absolutely fantastic.

    Looks like Schenn may have finally found a home, and Couts and Read have finally found a linemate.

    Yup. Schenn looks great on that line -- he's creating space for Read and Couturier, he's playing physical hockey and he's putting points on the board.

    Still didn't force it repeatedly to vinny. That's key

    I agree. Vinny also made a great pass to Giroux for the fourth goal. He can still play a bit, but his mediocre skating ability is being exposed repeatedly.

    MDZ down. Schenn likely gone with separated shoulder. Ghost done for season. This is not good for our already bad defense....
