Sports Talk with Brodes: Flyers Have a Chance to Win 10 Straight, Bruins Come to Town
The Philadelphia Flyers have a chance to win their tenth straight game on Tuesday night against the Boston Bruins.
Since the Flyers are at home, I'm curious to see how Alain Vigneault matches lines with Boston's first line. David Pastrnak, Patrice Bergeron, and Brad Marchand know how to dominate games.
Ivan Provorov and Matt Niskanen will have a tough task on the back end while Sean Couturier and Kevin Hayes will have to play a complete 200-foot game, along with the wingers.
What happens if Justin Braun and Robert Hagg get caught on the ice against their top line? Pastrnak has 48 goals and 94 points on the season.
Carter Hart stole the show against the Buffalo Sabres with a 38 save performance. He will need to follow that up with another strong outing. His numbers in the Wells Fargo Center are sensational.
Will Joel Farabee stay on the second line or will Vigneault put Scott Laughton with Hayes and Travis Konecny due to more experience.
Am I over thinking this? Is Vigneault going to make the Bruins adjust to his team instead of adjusting to them?
There are a lot of questions when it comes to this match up on Tuesday and it has been a LONG time since the Flyers had a regular season game this big to talk about.
South Philadelphia is going to be electric and I'm sure it will be a playoff atmosphere with hard hits, fights, and emotion!
