Flyers vs. Tampa Bay Lightning
The Philadelphia flyers (12-5-2) are taking on the Tampa Bay Lightning (9-7-2) tonight.
The Flyers come into this game following a rather embarrassing 3-0 loss on Tuesday to the Canadiens. However, the Flyers are looking to defend a 7 game winning streak at home coming into tonight's game. Meanwhile, the Lightning are coming off a much needed win over the Islanders last night, so they are likely to have some momentum from that.
One other thing going against us is that the Lightning have the offensive leader on their team, Steven Stamkos. He leads the league in goals (16) and points (30). He also had 2 of those points in the last game, so the big guys on our blue line need to do a good job of containing this potent weapon.
One thing I'm kind of upset about is Simon Gagne's injury. I was looking forward to seeing the long time Flyer (now a member of the Lightning) come back and play in this building again. Oh well, I guess I'll just have to eat more $1 hot dogs. I'm pumped to go tonight!!!
