The Philadelphia Flyers top line has been one of the few bright spots in otherwise dismal season.  The combination has provided nearly half of the team’s offense this season.  With Dave Hakstol staring at 10 straight losses, he has decided to break up one of the NHL’s best lines in hope to distribute the scoring better throughout the entire lineup.

Claude Giroux will remain on the left side of Sean Couturier, but they will joined by Wayne Simmonds.  Jakub Voracek will slide down to the second line with Valtteri Flippula at center and Michael Raffl on the left side.

Nolan Patrick will drop down to the third and be in between Jordan Weal and Travis Konecny.  Talyor Leier, Scott Laughton and Dale Weise will form the fourth line while Jeri Lehtera will sit this one out.

Brian Elliott is expected to get the start in goal against his former team.
