Preview:

In a rematch of Wednesday’s game the Flyers travel to DC to take on the Caps. The Caps played a much watered down lineup in the 2-1 loss Wednesday without the likes of Alex Ovechkin, Chris Clark, Michal Nylander, Victor Kozlov, Tom Poti, Brian Pothier, Matt Pettinger, and Alexander Semin. Expect a much deeper lineup this time around. Four Flyers were injured in their game Tuesday vs. Ottawa so watch for some of their younger players trying to step up. Also, Coach Hanlon will be looking to see who the final cuts are going to be for the Caps. On the hot seat: Forwards - Matt Bradley, Brian Sutherby, Brooks Laich, Ben Clymer, Jakub Klepis, David Steckel, Joe Motzko, and Chris Bourque Defensemen - Jame Pollock, John Erskine, Steve Eminger, Mike Green, Jeff Shultz, and Josef Bomedienne.
