PANACCIO’S FLYERS WEEK IN REVIEW: JAN 31-FEB 6

…Pretty interesting that the Costa Rica Line (Briere, Hartnell, Leino) is a -3 as a whole since the All-Star Break.  They haven’t looked all that dominant since the lay-off, save Leino’s two-goal performance against Nashville on Thursday.

Bobrovsky to Start vs. Senators

CSNPhilly.com’s Tim Panaccio is reporting that Peter Laviolette will turn to Sergei Bobrovsky for the second consecutive game, as the rookie Russian netminder will start tonight against the Ottawa Senators.

…Why not? Bob shut down one of the NHL’s more explosive offenses in Washington on Tuesday, and is closing in on his 20th win of the season. All year long, Lavvy has made a living riding the hot hand between Bob and Brian Boucher, and in Bobrovsky, Laviolette has the streakier goaltender at the moment.

FLYERS BOUNCE BACK FOR WIN WITH BIG THIRD PERIOD

…It was important to snag two points after how the game against Boston went on Thursday night, and the Flyers were able to do just that.  The Hartnell-Leino-Briere line is just flat out uncontainable when they are rolling, and that was the case in the third period last night.

FLYERS PREGAME NOTES: PRONGER SKATES IN FULL PADS

…While Chris Pronger’s return is being anxiously awaited by just about everyone associated with the Flyers, his skating this morning is nowhere near as important as the Flyers getting two points in Atlanta tonight.  Given the way they lost last night – five goals on Tim Thomas should be enough to win you a hockey game – the Orange and Black will need to get things together in a hurry as they play the second-half of a back-to-back tonight.  Atlanta will be raring to go, looking to prove to the Flyers and the NHL that they should be considered amongst the elite in a wide-open Eastern Conference.

The Flyers will need to match their intensity, improve their defensive style, and, most importantly, play a strong enough road game that will result in a victory.  A tough test looms Sunday at Madison Square Garden, and the Flyers MUST focus on tonight’s contest and leave the South with two more points to their name before they venture up to New York City.
