The Philadelphia Flyers are hosting the Anaheim Ducks tonight at Wells Fargo Center.
Philly got some great news this morning as Travis Konecny will be returning to the lineup, however they'll be down one forward.
Joel Farabee was suspended by the NHL for three games, which many felt was overboard.
Head coach Alain Vigneault was asked about it and he doesn't agree with the call at all.
"Initially on that play, if you watch it and you listen to the explanation of the NHL, they say he was pushed from behind. He was cross-checked from behind. Should have been a penalty. We should have been going on the power play. The time between the puck being passed and the hit I think was 1.34 seconds, which is late. But TK's one, just a few days before that, was 1.04. There's .3-something seconds difference. One is nothing, one is a three-game suspension to a young man that has no history. Sometimes things are hard to figure out. Just gotta roll with it and deal with it. That's the best explanation I can give you."
