Here is what you need to know in the Morning Sports Page:

Flyers

Sergei Bobrovsky allowed three goals on 26 shots and Matt Read scored the lone goal in the Flyers’ 4-1 loss to the Islanders Thursday night.  Bobrovsky had been perfect against the lowly Islanders during his brief career with a 7-0 record, a 1.86 goals-against average and a .944 save percentage but it was not the case on Thursday night.

Chris Pronger’s wife, Lauren, echoed her husband’s disappointment and concern when discussing his status telling CSN this week:  ” he has good days, bad days. It’s been a lot of trauma going on, and we’re just praying right now….He’s battling. He wants to be out there more than anybody. It’s tough for all of us to watch him go through this.”

Eagles

The Saints are set hire ex-Rams coach Steve Spagnuolo as defensive coordinator.  It looks like Juan Castillo will get another season as Eagles defensive boss, but that remains to be seen as Eagles head coach Andy Reid gets final say on that decision and he has yet to speak to the media.
