Flyers Look To Snap Skid As They Host Toronto
By Matt Leon
PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — It’s been a rough week for the Flyers, as they have dropped three in a row, all to division rivals (Devils, Rangers and Islanders). The Orange and Black will look to return to the win column tonight as they host the Toronto Maple Leafs.
Despite this recent rut, the Flyers remain in second place in the Atlantic Division with 67 points, they are four points behind the New York Rangers.
Toronto is playing pretty good hockey this season as they are skating second in the Northeast Division with 62 points. They are six points behind first-place Boston.
Sergei Bobrovsky is set to get the start in net tonight for the Flyers as Ilya Bryzgalov is battling an illness. As a precaution, the Flyers have also recalled goaltender Jason Bacashihua from their American Hockey League affiliate, the Adirondack Phantoms.
KYW’s Matt Leon spoke with Sarah Baicker, who covers the Flyers for CSNPhilly.com, about this match-up with the Maple Leafs.
