Here is your Philadelphia Flyers Gameday FAQ for Saturday, October 26, 2013.

 

 

When and where are the Flyers playing?

 

The Philadelphia Flyers (2-7-0) travel to the island that is long to face the New York Islanders (4-3-3) at the Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum for a 7:00pm matchup.

 

 

How can I watch this game?

 

This game will be shown on Comcast Sportsnet (CSN Philly) locally. You can also find it on MSG Plus if you’re in the Big Apple.

 

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?

 

Hartsy’s back! We’re expecting the new lines to come together like this:

 

Michael Raffl – Claude Giroux – Vincent Lecavalier

Scott Hartnell – Brayden Schenn – Jakub Voracek

Matt Read – Sean Couturier – Wayne Simmonds

Zac Rinaldo – Max Talbot – Jay Rosehill

 

Kimmo Timonen – Erik Gustafsson

Nicklas Grossmann – Braydon Coburn

Luke Schenn – Mark Streit

 

Steve Mason will be between the pipes for the Flyers in this one.

 

 

Why the heck is Rosehill playing?

 

Because the Flyers hate us.

 

 

Who do I have to look forward to booing?

 

The Islanders lineup is projected to look like this:

 

Matt Moulson – John Tavares – Kyle Okposo

Pierre-Marc Bouchard – Frans Nielsen – Josh Bailey

Michael Grabner – Peter Regin – Cal Clutterbuck

Matt Marton – Casey Cizikas – Eric Boulton

 

Travis Hamonic – Andrew MacDonald

Thomas Hickey – Radek Martinek

Matt Donovan – Matt Carkner

 

 

Kevin Poulin will be tending goal for the Isles in this one.

 

 

What’s your prediction?

 

5-3 Flyers win, the 5th goal coming with an empty net. It won’t be easy though.
