The New York Rangers will head into South Philadelphia tonight as they take on the Philadelphia Flyers starting at 7:00 PM. The Rangers and Flyers have both started out this 2013-2014 campaign on a bad note, and are looking to rebound in the near future. For the Rangers, they are battling through a ton of injuries throughout their entire lineup, while the Flyers haven't necessarily been up to par with their recent performances.

Cam Talbot will be making his NHL debut in between the pipes, while Mats Zuccarello, will be sitting out as a healthy scratch. Brandon Mashinter will be slotting in for Zuccarello, and will be paired up on the fourth line with Dominic Moore, and Derek Dorsett. As for the Flyers, they will be without Scott Hartnell, as he recovers from a upper-body injury.

The full lineups for both teams can be found below.
