Best Flyers YouTube Video We Could Find: In honor of NBC butchering covering today's game, here's former Flyers forward Tim Kerr fighting former Bruins defenseman and current NBC analyst Mike MIlbury:
-Marc-Andre Fleury (30-16-6, 2.73 GAA, .911 SV%) and Martin Biron (23-15-5, 2.77 GAA, .915 SV%) are the expected starters in net.
-Check out this insane save Biron made on Buffalo's Tim Connolly Friday night:
-Mark Eaton is more than familiar with the Penguins-Flyers rivalry.
-Dan Bylsma defended Evgeni Malkin's hit on Wayne Simmonds.
-Fourth place is on the line today.
-How long should Dan Bylsma be the interim head coach?
-Chris Kunitz admits he's somewhat streaky.
-Martin Biron (right) thinks Sergei Gonchar's return is the secret to the Penguins' recent success.
-The Flyers have built up their impressive record against weak teams.
-Is Penguins-Flyers as intense as the Pirates-Phillies rivalry of the 1970s?
-Flyers defenseman Randy Jones (hip) will be a game-time decision.
-The Penguins will be marketing wearing their dreaded blue throwback uniforms today. They are 2-5-2 in those rags and have been outscored, 27-19, in them.
