The Philadelphia Flyers have a tough test ahead of them tonight as they try and hang on to any playoff hope. 

Six points behind the fourth place Boston Bruins, the Flyers will play the Penguins in Pittsburgh. 

While their playoff hopes might be dwindling, there's still some excitement for tonight's game as one of the Flyers' prospects will be making their NHL debut. 

Head coach Alain Vigneault confirmed that forward Wade Ellison will make his debut and play on a line with Nolan Patrick and Oskar Lindblom. 

Vigneault added that Philippe Myers will also jump into the lineup and replace Samuel Morin who AV said he wants fresh for the weekend. 

Carter Hart gets the start between the pipes.
