Philadelphia Flyers (21-17-4) @ New Jersey Devils (17-18-8), 7:30pm, NBCSN/TCN-PH, TSN2, RDS2 The story of tonight’s game was going to be about Ray Emery in net to close out the Philadelphia Flyers’ road trip with the return of Michael Raffl to the lineup. Now, the focus has shifted to Claude Giroux being snubbed by Team Canada for the 2014 Olympics. With a few questionable names on the Canadian roster, including former Flyer Jeff Carter, one has to think Giroux isn’t too happy about Steve Yzerman’s decision.

More importantly perhaps, the team is finally healthy as Scott Hartnell and Vincent Lecavalier have both returned from injury. Lecavalier now has four goals and six points on the season, three of which came yesterday as he skated for the second game in a row with captain Claude Giroux and rookie Michael Raffl.
