Emery (Emery!) will start vs. Carolina

   It made perfect sense to assume that goalie Michael Leighton would start Saturday afternoon against visiting Carolina, so....

   Flyers coach Peter Laviolette has decided to stay with Ray Emery.

   Leighton was expected to get the nod because Emery has had three straight starts since returning from his abdominal injury _ and because Emery figures to start Sunday afternoon against the Pittsburgh Penguins.

   Laviolette likes staying with the hot goalie. Leighton made 11 consecutive starts _ he was 8-1-1 with one no-decision _ before he went to Emery.

   Emery is 2-1 in his last three games but has looked sharper in each outing.

   Do you agree with Laviolette's decision?
