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.

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.

Leighton had back surgery on Oct. 11 to relieve a herniated disc and his timetable for return was six to eight weeks. Leighton had skated 4 or 5 days on his own prior to Wednesday’s practice.
Leighton was originally scheduled to return to practice on Nov. 10 but said he is a little ahead of schedule. He took shots from teammates and didn’t seem to have any trouble moving in net.
