Sergei Bobrovsky will return to the crease tonight, making his 12th straight start, as the Flyers take on the Tampa Bay Lightning at the Wells Fargo Center.
The Flyers are 9-1-1 in the 22-year-old rookie’s last 11 starts.
It may a surprise for some, but in reality, the statistics have always shown that Peter Laviolette leans towards sticking with the hot hand in net, as noted in today’s Daily News.
Video: CineSport's Noah Coslov and Daily News Flyers writer Frank Seravalli talk about the end of the Flyers' unbeaten streak, and the critical week ahead.
P.K. Subban seemed to be at the center of every battle last night in the Flyers’ 3-0 shutout loss at the Bell Centre.
Subban, 21 and the Canadiens’ fan-favorite rookie defenseman, didn’t shy away from running his mouth during the chippy third period that saw three players leave the game with 10-minute misconducts.
He was involved in nearly every trash-talking session before being thrown to the ice by the normally mild-mannered Sean O’Donnell in the third period. O'Donnell was tossed after the altercation - and Subban never dropped the gloves.

Sergei Bobrovsky will make his 10th straight start in net tonight against the Ottawa Senators, as the Flyers try to push their undefeated-in-regulation streak to 9-0-1.
But Bobrovsky’s status wasn’t the question heading into Monday’s morning skate.
Is Andreas Nodl healthy enough to stay in the lineup, after bruising his left big toe when blocking a shot in Saturday’s 5-2 win over the Panthers?
A long week for the Phantoms, in which they saw their head coach get dismissed, finally came to a close on Saturday night at the Glens Falls Civic Center.
Greg Gilbert was fired on Monday, after Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren met with the team for a lengthy chat about the direction of the franchise.
Their 10-game losing streak finally came to a halt on Friday night, in interim John Paddock’s second game on the bench.
Jeff Carter has agreed to an 11-year contract extension with the Flyers worth $58 million.
The salary cap hit would be $5.27 million starting next season (his cap hit this season is $5 million). Carter could have become a restricted free agent July 1. The contract included a limited no-trade clause, although general manager Paul Holmgren would not specify when.
Despite leading the Flyers in scoring with 16 points in 16 games, Claude Giroux didn't even make the ballot for the NHL's revamped All-Star Game.
The NHL released their list of 100 candidates for 42 spots on Friday – and Giroux was left off the list.
When voting opens on Monday for forwards, Giroux will be available as a write-in vote only for the fan portion of the game.
In all, five Flyers were represented: Chris Pronger, Kimmo Timonen, Mike Richards, Jeff Carter and Danny Briere. All five players have been All-Stars before, with Carter representing the Flyers in 2009 in Montreal and Richards and Timonen heading to Atlanta in 2008. Pronger is a five-time All-Star. None of them have matched Giroux’s success in the first 16 games of this season, night in and night out.
