Biron facing Flyers tonight; Laliberte demoted


   Goalie Marty Biron, one of the NHL's all-time good guys, will face his ex-teammates Wednesday when the improved New York Islanders host the Flyers at 7.

   "He's a great guy who loved to be at the rink every day and loved to have fun," Flyers winger Scott Hartnell said. "Seeing him in between the pipes will be a little different. You shoot on him every day in practice so you think you may have his tendancies. It will be fun and we need to get ourselves back onto the winning ways."
   "It will be nice to see him again," captain Mike Richards said. "Obviously we have been through a lot the last couple of years when we were teammates. I know that he is having some success out here, which is nice to see."

   The Flyers have lost three straight on a 1-3 road trip that ends tonight.

     "It is obviously not going the way we wanted it to go," Richards said. "But if we win tonight, we could salvage a couple of points and head back home, where we feel more comfortable. I think (tonight) is going to be more mental than anything."

    Brian Boucher will be in the net for the Flyers, who loaned right winger David Laliberte back to the Phantoms. That means Arron Asham figures to be in tonight's lineup after missing four games with an injured side.
