A new era began for the Flyers on Tuesday night with Scott Gordon's first game behind the bench and Carter Hart's first game in goal. The Flyers managed a 3-2 win in their debut.
Things get a little normal for the Flyers again — no major changes before this home game — as they prepare to face one of the West's best. The Nashville Predators are in town, providing a test for a team that may still be fragile from a lot of changes.
Game time is at 7 p.m.
In his NHL debut, Carter Hart got the win making 20 saves. He gets another shot against much tougher competition on Thursday against the Predators.
Pekka Rinne continues to be one of the NHL's elite netminders. The reigning Vezina Trophy winner is off to a great start this season and looks to continue his success on Thursday.
Flyers Projected Lineup
Injuries: Brian Elliott, Anthony Stolarz, Corban Knight
Scratches: Jori Lehtera, Jordan Weal, Christian Folin
No changes to the lineup for the Flyers from Tuesday's game. Under Scott Gordon, the lines are subject to change as well. Claude Giroux shifted to center and played with James van Riemsdyk and Travis Konecny in Tuesday's game, even though pre-game line combinations were similar to the above.
Predators Projected Lineup
Injuries: Viktor Arvidsson, Filip Forsberg, P.K. Subban, Colton Sissons
Scratches: Rocco Grimaldi, Anthony Bitetto, Dan Hamhuis
