It's been 11 days since the Flyers last played a game, but they are finally able to field a full roster for a game after the recent COVID-19 spread the team experienced. The team is still without six regulars in their lineup, which means that the roster for tonight's game will be filled with a couple of Lehigh Valley Phantoms.
Fans should expect to see some rust since most of the team has barely skated over the past 11 days, but it could be perfect timing as the team will be facing a Rangers squad that has lost four in a row and sit in seventh place in the eight-team conference. Hopefully the injection of youth in the lineup will provide a bit of a spark, and veterans like James van Riemsdyk and Sean Couturier will hopefully be on their A-game to pull off a victory.
