The Philadelphia Flyers look to keep things rolling tonight as they head into Detroit to play the Red Wings.
Philly has been able to grab seven out of a possible eight points in their last four games and sit tied with the Carolina Hurricanes for the second Wild Card spot. A win tonight will vault them into sole possession of the first Wild Card spot and at the same time tying the Columbus Blue Jackets for third in the Metro.
Head coach Alain Vigneault told reporters that while he's close, defenseman Shayne Gostisbehere won't get back in the lineup tonight. A return later on in the week is more likely.
AV also confirmed that Brian Elliott will get the start as like Gostisbehere, Carter Hart skated but isn't ready to come back.
It looks like JVR will stick on the first line with Claude Giroux at center and Travis Konecny on the right wing.
Here's a look at tonight's projected lineup against Detroit:
JVR - Giroux - Konecny
Farabee - Couturier - Voracek
Laughton - Hayes - Pitlick
Raffl - Bunnaman - NAK
Provorov - Niskanen
Sanheim - Myers
Hagg - Braun
