Game Thread: Flyers Host Coyotes


Marty Biron put in one of his best performances of the season last night and shut out the Sabres. The Flyers will look to build off of that tonight as the Phoenix Coyotes come to sunny Philadelphia. The Coyotes have dropped four straight while the Flyguys will look to win their fourth in a row.

While Marty B. was great last night, he may get the night off this evening:

With both Martin Biron and Ilya Bryzgalov having started last night and
both clubs in the midst of a busy stretch of games, the clubs will
likely turn to their backups. Antero Niittymäki will make his first
career start against the Coyotes while Mikael Tellqvist (2-1-0, 1.68
GAA, .940 save percentage, one shutout against the Flyers) will make
his fourth career start against the Flyers. Tellqvist has only appeared
in two games to date this season.

Puck drops at 7:00.
