The Flyers played a spirited preseason game on Friday night in Boston. On Monday night, the home preseason schedule continues with the Bruins making the trip to Philadelphia at 7 p.m.
Friday’s game resulted in the lone win of the preseason in a shootout over the Bruins. The next night, in the preseason home opener against the Devils, the Flyers battled back in the third before falling in overtime.
The Flyers will take another look at Tyson Foerster and Bobby Brink in their quest to make the roster. The rest of the forward group is very much a potential opening-night lineup, with both Sean Couturier and Cam Atkinson playing once again.
Cam York returns to the ice on the blue line for the first time since the preseason opener last week. He had been battling an injury. Egor Zamula also gets another game as well as Adam Ginning and Ronnie Attard.
Sam Ersson will start in goal and play the entire game.
The Bruins are, as expected, bringing a much different lineup to Philadelphia than the game in Boston on Friday night. There are far fewer veterans in the lineup, with Charlie Coyle and Jake DeBrusk headlining the forward group. Brandon Carlo and Hampus Lindholm highlight the defense.
Jeremy Swayman is expected to start in goal.
The game is televised locally on NBC Sports Philadelphia.
