The Flyers will still be shorthanded this evening when they take on the New York Rangers, but they will at least have their captain Claude Giroux in the lineup as he comes off the COVID protocol list. The team is coming off two-straight losses, but it has been over a calendar year since they dropped three in a row (December 31st 2019 - January 7th 2020). Yet again Alain Vigneault will be moving around his lines a bit. He'll try to jumpstart Nolan Patrick and move him from third-line center to second-line right wing. He'll also move around a few defensemen and will start Brian Elliott in net.
