The Flyers host the Bruins in preseason action tonight at 7:00PM in Philadelphia.

  • Here is the roster for tonight’s game. Bruins NHL Expect Dan Vladar in net. @JoeyMacHockey
  • The Bruins rallied, but still lost to the Red Wings on Saturday night, 4-3 in OT. Cameron Hughes, Daniel Winnik, and Axel Andersson scored for Boston, Steven Kampfer provided two assists, and Zane McIntyre was in net. Boston Globe
  • Patrice Bergeron is closer to a return. Has it really been 15 seasons since the 33 year old became a Bruin? Bonus- look to see Ryan Donato and Daniel Winnik making the roster. Boston Globe
  • Brad Marchand was concerned for the youngsters that were trying to make a good impression during a China trip that was more stressful and logistically difficult than ordinary training camp. MassLive
  • This year’s unusual training camp structure did allow undrafted free agent Karson Kuhlman an opportunity to showcase his versatility. Boston Herald
  • Assessing new Bruin John Moore is still underway, although he is not likely to displace Zdeno Chara or Torey Krug as a top-four, left-shot defenseman. Bonus- observations on some of the youngsters’ and new acquisitions’ performances in China. Boston Globe
  • He’s left-shot forward who can play both sides, but he feels the breath of younger teammates down his back. Peter Cehlarik is making his case to stick in Boston. Boston Herald
  • Ryan Donato is likewise padding his resume to help land a roster spot. Left? Right? Center? He will play anywhere- he just wants to play! Providence Journal
  • Three unique backgrounds, three strong contenders for that juicy third line center position- have a look at Jakob Forsbacka Karlsson, Trent Frederic and Jack Studnicka. The Hockey Writers
  • Mark Divver believes Anders Bjork will open the season in Providence. Rinkside Rhode Island
  • The Adam McQuaid trade has now shifted the overload of defensemen onto the Providence Bruins The Hockey Writers

Elsewhere around the rink:

  • In news of former Bruins: What jet lag? Austin Czarnik didn’t skip a beat after international travel, scoring a hat trick against the Canucks on Saturday. Calgary Sun Jimmy Hayes was waived by the Penguins. TribLive Tyler Randell was cut from Sabres camp. CBS Sports Brian Gionta is about to call it a career. @DandC
  • Just in time for tonight’s game, the Flyers have introduced their new mascot, Gritty. Nightmare fuel? @NHLFlyers
  • Plus ça change, plus c’est la même chose. Here’s a bold stand against retaliatory violence- now that their player is in the wrong, having dished out a blindside punch resulting in a suspension. Habs Eyes On The Prize
