Flyers' lines set; Emery unveils second 'tribute' mask

Flyers' lines set; Emery unveils second 'tribute' mask



   The Flyers' four lines appear set for Tuesday's final preseason game, a matchup against Minnesota at the Wachovia Center.

   The lines should look like this:





     Those lines also figure to be together for Friday's season opener in Carolina.

    On defense Tuesday, it should look like this: Pronger-Carle; Timonen-Coburn; Parent-Syvret. Ole-Kristian Tollefsen, who has been hindered by preseason injuries, could replace one of the D-men and get some much-needed work.

    Ray Emery and Johan Backlund will divide the goalie duties Tuesday.

    At today's practice, Emery unveiled his second "tribute" mask. This one has the likenesses of former Flyers goalies Bernie Parent, Pelle Lindbergh and Rox Hextall painted in it. The other one is composed of boxers Joe Frazier, Bernard Hopkins and the fictitious Rocky Balboa.

    Emery, who celebrtaed his 27th birthday today, said he will alternate the masks during the season.

   In the preseason, Emery has been brilliant, compiling a 1.76 goals-against average and a .944 save percentage.

   Yes, he is ready for Friday's opener.
