With the opener just three days away, the Flyers' lines and D pairings are coming into focus.
They made a few changes in their units during Day 4 of training camp Wednesday in Voorhees.
Here’s how the lines looked:
** Claude Giroux centering Scott Hartnell and Brayden Schenn.
** Sean Couturier centering Max Talbot and Jake Voracek.
** Scott Laughton centering Wayne Simmonds and Matt Read.
** Eric Wellwood centering Ruslan Fedotenko and Zac Rinaldo.
The extras were Tom Sestito, Tye McGinn and Jody Shelley.
The previous day, Laughton had been on the fourth line -- Fedotenko was on the third unit -- and Wellwood had been an extra.
Wednesday’s D looked like his: Kimmo Timonen-Luke Schenn; Braydon Coburn-Nick Grossmann; Andrej Meszaros-Kurtis Foster; and Bruno-Gervais-Andreas Lilja.
There are indications that Meszaros, coming off Achilles ligament surgery, will be ready for Saturday’s 3 p.m. opener against visiting Pittsburgh. Gervais and Foster appear to be battling for the sixth D spot.
There is another huge crowd in Voorhees. Thursday’s camp moves to the WFC at 6 p.m., and all 20,000 tickets have been distributed.
For a PRACTICE.
