Following Monday's preseason opener, a 3-1 loss to the Islanders, the Flyers will get right back on the ice for another preseason tilt on Tuesday.
This time, a largely new group of players heads to Long Island to face the Islanders again. Game time is at 7 p.m.
It will be the preseason debut for several players, including Scott Laughton, Michael Raffl, Travis Sanheim and Robert Hagg. In addition, Carter Hart will make his preseason debut, getting the start in goal.
The game group skated on Tuesday morning, but lines were not firm with some players not participating in the skate after playing in Monday's game. Four players from Monday's lineup are back in on Tuesday -- German Rubtsov, Mikhail Vorobyev, Maksim Sushko and Chris Stewart.
The Flyers roster on Tuesday will be as follows:
Forwards: Andy Andreoff, Michael Raffl, Scott Laughton, Mikhail Vorobyev, Kurtis Gabriel, Chris Stewart, German Rubtsov, Nicolas Aube-Kubel, Maksim Sushko, David Kase, Matthew Strome, Carsen Twarynski, Connor Bunnaman
Defensemen: Travis Sanheim, Robert Hagg, Chris Bigras, Tyler Wotherspoon, Nate Prosser, TJ Brennan, Mark Friedman
Goalies: Carter Hart, Jean-Francois Berube
Like in Monday's game, Hart is expected to play half of the game before Berube takes over. The Flyers have 13 forwards and seven defensemen traveling to the game. One from each group will be scratched.
The Islanders roster for Tuesday's game will be as follows:
Forwards: Mathew Barzal, Steve Bernier, Ryan Bourque, Derick Brassard, Michael Dal Colle, Jordan Eberle, Tanner Fritz, Mason Jobst, Ross Johnston, Anders Lee, Kyle MacLean, Oliver Wahlstrom
Defensemen: Samuel Bolduc, Noah Dobson, Nick Leddy, Adam Pelech, Ryan Pulock, Parker Wotherspoon
Goalies: Thomas Greiss, Jared Coreau
