Flyers preview: 11/29/08

Posted 9:50 AM ET | Comments 0
After an overtime loss yesterday against Carolina, the Flyers look to begin a new winning streak when they take on the Leafs in Toronto tonight. There are going to be questions heading into this game. Will Jeff Carter play? That's the big question, after Jeff hurt his shoulder awkwardly into the boards yesterday. On Post game live on CSN yesterday, Jeff said he was fine, but you never know. Hopefully he's ready to go tonight because you know he wants to play, because of the fact that Toronto is about an hour away from his hometown in London, Ontario. I know he's had this game circled on his calendar for a long time. Another question in this game, is Marty Biron healthy enough to play tonight? Marty got hit around the neck area yesterday with a puck. He stayed in and played the rest of the game, so I guess he's fine, but you never know. John Stevens might just go with Niitty anyways so that Marty gets a break. You want to make sure that you have two goalies who are fresh, so I see Niitty being in there tonight. The key for the Flyers to win is to match the hard-working effort by the Leafs. The Leafs are not the most skilled, talented team, but they work hard every night for Ron Wilson, and that's why they have a chance to win every night. The Flyers have to match that effort tonight, and if they can, they will have a good chance to win this game. My prediction for this game is the Flyers 4-2. If Jeff plays, he will score twice, Gags will score, and Mike Knuble will score one.
