Pre-Game Notes (Pittsburgh VS Philadelphia)

LINE COMBINATIONS (projected from the morning skate)
Kunitz-Staal-Kennedy
Neal-Jeffrey-Kovalev
Dupuis-Talbot-Conner
Rupp-Adams-Asham
(Tangradi-Comrie-Godard)

NOTE: Orpik rotated with the other six defensemen during drills (he HAS been cleared by the doctors to play, but is uncertain of when he'll return; talk has been about sometime next week)

BOU OR BOB??
the Flyers don't seem to have a #1 goalie as they've been dividing the time between Brian Boucher and youngster Sergei Bobrovsky ... today Laviolette gave the nod for Bobrovsky to start in the net tonight for the Flyers

Ian Laperriere (F), post-concussion syndrome - indefinitely
