'Bob' gets call; Lavy may juggle lineup


  Rookie goalie Sergei "Bob" Bobrovsky will try to help the Flyers snap a four-game losing streak Tuesday against visiting Edmonton.

   "Bob" will get the call as the Flyers attempt to recover from Sunday's 7-0 loss to the Rangers. He is 1-3-1 in his last five starts.

   GM Paul Holmgren said the Flyers need to tighten their play in their own end.

     “It’s not the defense; it’s not the goalie. It’s EVERYBODY _ a six-man unit," Holmgren said.

   Coach Peter Laviolette is considering a lineup shake-up, one that could send struggling winger Andreas Nodl to the bench.

    The Flyers' PP is 2 for 32 in its last nine games.
