The game group the Flyers will send on the road for their fourth preseason game against the Boston Bruins on Saturday afternoon offers a healthy mix of veteran players and young players locked in roster battles. Puck drop is at 1 p.m.
The Flyers will give a few players a second chance to see game action, with eight players on the ice in the preseason opener also on the roster for this game. The team takes on the Buffalo Sabres on Tuesday night at 7 p.m.
Flyers GM Chuck Fletcher held his end-of-season availability on Tuesday, first confirming that Mike Yeo would not be returning as head coach of the team. He also discussed the meaning of an "aggressive retool," how youth factors into the future, and some injury updates.
Buffalo scored twice in the first and twice in the second to open up a two-goal lead going to the third. That was enough as the Flyers were dealt a season sweep from the Sabres in a 5-3 loss on Sunday afternoon at Wells Fargo Center.
Joel Farabee scored off the great feed from Hayes to secure a 5-4 win over the Nashville Predators on Thursday night at Wells Fargo Center on a night when the team honored Claude Giroux for his 1,000th game.
