A healthy Flyers team is the one team that the Sens can't beat. Thankfully, they aren't healthy Cheering

Marc-Andre Bourdon - Matt Carle
Braydon Coburn - Nicklas Grossmann
Erik Gustafsson - Pavel Kubina

I can't believe that's their D. I know it is and has been, but wow is it different than it could have been with Mez, Pronger, and Timmonen. If they still picked up Grossman

Pronger-Carle
Timmonen-Grossman
Coburn-Mez

would be pretty fantastic!

So was his foot broken or was it not? Maybe we should just make sure and brake it better.

They called it a chip fracture...

Not sure if they did anything for it.

Flyers play Sat and Sun... so "returning this weekend" could be either of those games.

Nope, as Yahoo said: Sens trail 2-1. But of course you are separating losses and overtime loses, when it is just easier to say they have won 1 and lost 2, instead of saying won 1, lost 1, and lost 1 in overtime.

October 18: 7-2 Loss @ Ottawa
January 7: 3-2 OTL @ Philadelphia
January 8: 6-4 Win @ Ottawa
