Niitty Looking for First Home Win


With all of Antero Niittymaki's recent success, it's easy to forget that each of his seven wins has come on the road. Tonight the Flyers will host the Florida Panthers, who are plodding along with a sub-.500 record in the relatively weak Southeast Division. While the Flyers are thinking playoffs and gunning for a division title, the Panthers could likely be sellers at the trade deadline.

However, they still have a shot at winning their division, and so far this season, the two teams are dead even in head-to-head games, so the Panthers can't be taken lightly. Florida won the first contest, and the Flyers took the second with a 1-0 Niittymaki shutout. Hopefully he won't need to be that good tonight.
