The New York Chytils will be taking on the Philadelphia Flyers tonight at the Garden. Coming off a pretty respectable loss to the red-hot Maple Leafs up in Toronto, in which they reminded us yet again that they can totally (almost) look (for a few minutes) as if they may actually beat (practically) any team in the league, the Blueshirts will be facing a Philly squad that has, if nothing else, given the world a perfect “Love, Actually” parody. (They also lost to the Blue Jackets yesterday, 4-3.)
Think they’ll continue the five forwards on the power play thing? Think they’ll maybe consider a five forwards on the ice at all time (because why the hell not) thing?
Not much to report off DQ's pregame. Same lineup as last night, meaning Tony D sits out a second straight game. The only change, the coach said, is he's flip-flopping Zuccarello and Buchnevich on the top two lines. So Buch with Chytil and Zibanejad, Zucc with Kreider and Hayes.— Colin Stephenson (@ColinASteph) December 23, 2018
IDEK, just don’t let it be 4-0 again.
