Line changes expected

The Flyers will likely change their lineup a bit for tonight's Game 2.

Line changes expected


BOSTON – The coaching manual says if you lose Game 1, change is necessary for Game 2.

Admittedly, Peter Laviolette will not hit the panic button. He said he liked his team's effort and resiliency. His system will remain almost entirely unchanged. But he knows how important tonight’s Game 2 is to the Flyers’ playoff lives.

A loss at the TD Garden sends the Flyers hurling back to Philly in a 2-0 deficit. The Flyers are just 2-12 in series when they trail two-games-to-none.

A shakeup in the lines is in order.

Here is what you can expect tonight:

Leino – Richards – Carcillo
Hartnell – Giroux – Briere
Van Riemsdyk – Powe – Ross
Nodl – Betts – Asham

Leino and Hartnell could be flip-flopped. And, of course, the lines will likely change as the game progresses – depending on how often the special teams are used.
