The Flyers have shown that all lines are capable of producing at any time. The one line that didn't score in Tuesday's game was the line featuring Sean Couturier, Jake Voracek and Oskar Lindblom. Voracek has been solid for the last several games since moving to that line, and after being held off the board, he could be due for a big offensive night.
Christian Fischer has just six points in 28 games this season, but half of those points have come in the last five games. He had a big goal for Arizona in their win against Columbus.

Lineup Notes

Mikhail Vorobyev was called up on Wednesday to replace the injured Michael Raffl, but he will be out of the lineup on Thursday. The Flyers are choosing to play seven defensemen, meaning Robert Hagg will come back into the lineup and rotate the other forwards to the fourth line throughout the game.
