The Flyers will be without Brayden Schenn, who is suspended, and Scott Hartnell who is out indefinitely with a foot injury.
At CSN Philly, Tim Panaccio writes that playing the Rangers may be just what the winless Flyers need.
Peter Laviolette told Panaccio, “They’re a tough team, period. We’ll have to make sure we’re prepared. They have a good team and play a good game. We need to play a hockey game. We got a long way to go and a lot of hockey games.”
Wayne Simmonds called tonight’s game against the Rangers a must win.
