Bruins-Flyers Preview

Chuck Kobasew and P.J. Axelsson did not practice yesterday, for undisclosed reasons. It is unsure if either are available for the game. Could a trade be in the works?? Maybe but probably not. Vladimir Sobotka has been recalled from Providence and may play if one of them are not available. Also, Matt Lashoff was returned to Providence.

The Flyers are 22-15-4 on the season and have the second ranked powerplay in the league. If the Bruins take stupid penalties early, and the Bruins need to rely on their 26th ranked penalty kill unit frequently, then they will certainly lose this game. The Bruins have been struggling lately and are only 3-6-1 in their last ten games, falling to seventh place in the Eastern Conference. The Bruins must stay out of the box and shut down all-star Mike Richards if they want to win this game. Star left wing Simon Gagne, who missed 26 games this season and is arguably the best player on this team, has recently returned from an injury making this team even more dangerous. Should be interesting to see how the Bruins respond from two disappointing loses in a row.

Let Sobotka play. I loved the Reich-Sobotka-Nokelainen line. I hope there's nothing up with Axelsson and Kobasew, so I hipe Sobotka gets the nod over Suck Thornton.

I agree, get whatever draft pick you can for Thornton or Riech and keep Sobotka up. This kid understands how to play a role. Also with Dany Heatley out six weeks PC should try and pawn Murray off on the Sens. I doubt a deal could be found though. I love the future of these Bruins, every time they call a kid up they fit in well.

I agree spokedb...the future is bright...just look at the ahl standings and the bruins are blowing the competition out of the water...over .800 win percent and they have a good 15 points on the next closest team...the future looks good finally now we just need to not trade away the future
