Flyers Training Camp Notes: Giroux, Couturier on Same Line, Simmonds Still Out

Flyers head coach Dave Hakstol hinted that there would be slight changes to the groups that skated on Monday, but there was very little different to those groupings on Tuesday.

While the groups remained heavily the same, the lines were not. Claude Giroux and Sean Couturier skated on the same line with Giroux playing the wing. The line of Oskar Lindblom, Nolan Patrick and Travis Konecny also skated together, just as they did for the team's first preseason game on Sunday.

Wayne Simmonds was also not on the ice for a second straight maintenance day. It is expected he will be back on the ice on Wednesday.

Taylor Leier filled in once again for Simmonds. The only other change to the groups was the addition of T.J. Brennan to Group 1. Travis Sanheim skated with Group 2.

The lines for Group 1 were as follows:

Claude Giroux-Sean Couturier-Jake Voracek
Oskar Lindblom-Nolan Patrick-Travis Konecny
Jordan Weal-Valtteri Filppula-Dale Weise
Michael Raffl-Jori Lehtera-Matt Read
Taylor Leier-Scott Laughton-Colin McDonald

Shayne Gostisbehere-Robert Hagg
Ivan Provorov-Andrew MacDonald
Sam Morin-T.J. Brennan
Brandon Manning-Radko Gudas

Goalies for the two groups remained the same as Monday, with Brian Elliott, Michal Neuvirth and Alex Lyon skating with Group 1.

The lines from Group 2 were as follows:

Phil Varone-Greg Carey-Nicolas Aube-Kubel
Corban Knight-Mike Vecchione-Danick Martel
Cole Bardreau-Mikhail Vorobyev-Ivan Kosorenkov
Connor Bunnaman-German Rubtsov-Carsen Twarynski
Tyrell Goulbourne-Radel Fazleev-Pascal Laberge

Travis Sanheim-Phil Myers
Will O'Neil-Mark Friedman
James de Haas-Mark Alt
Reece Willcox-Maxim Lamarche

Leland Irving, Carter Hart and John Muse were the goalies in Group 2.

The Flyers morning skate times for Wednesday are still to be determined, but those sessions should give us a better idea of how the lines will stack up for that night's split-squad action against the Islanders. Expect a mix of players from both groups to appear at each of the games. Both games, taking place in Allentown and Brooklyn, begin at 7 p.m.
