Here is your Philadelphia Flyers Gameday FAQ for Wednesday, October 5, 2013.


When and where are the Flyers playing?

The Philadelphia Flyers (0-1-0) play their second game of the season against the Montreal Canadiens (0-1-0). The teams are slated for a 7:00 pm start in the Bell Centre.


How can I watch this game?

This game will be shown on Comcast Sportsnet (CSN Philly) locally and on CBC and RDS if you’re up beyond the wall.

The game will also be broadcast on 97.5 The Fanatic for those who prefer the smooth sounds of Tim Saunders and Chris Therien.


Who do I have to look forward to seeing in orange and black?

We’re expecting the lines to come together line this; however, this is always subject to change:

Scott Hartnell – Claude Giroux – Brayden Schenn

Matt Read – Vincent Lecavalier – Wayne Simmonds

Max Talbot – Sean Couturier – Jakub Voracek

Jay Rosehill – Adam Hall – Zac Rinaldo


Kimmo Timonen – Braydon Coburn

Luke Schenn – Mark Streit

Andrej Meszaros – Nicklas Grossmann


Razor Ray Emery will be making his first start of the season for the Flyers.


Who do I have to look forward to booing? 

Rene Bourque – Tomas Plekanec – Brian Gionta

Alex Galchenyuk – Lars Eller – Brendan Gallagher

Brandon Prust – David Desharnais – Danny Briere

Travis Moen – Ryan White – Michael Bournival


Josh Gorges – P.K. Subban

Andrei Markov – Raphael Diaz

Jarred Tinordi – Francis Bouillon


Carey Price will be starting for the Habs in this one.

Max Pacioretty will be out of the lineup tonight after dealing with Colton Orr’s goonery in their first game of the season against the Maple Leafs.


Anything else I should know?

This is Danny Briere’s first game against the Flyers since they bought out his contract over the summer.

This is Ray Emery’s first start for the Flyers since he shut out the Calgary Flames back on Febraury 1, 2010. Atlanta still had a hockey team back then!

I messed up on the last FAQ and wrote that Jonathan Bernier was making his 2nd start for the Maple Leafs, when it was in fact his first. So I’m sorry if you were screaming, “How can he be so good and lucky in only his second start!?” instead of “How can be so good and lucky in only his first start!?”
