Wayne Simmonds Playing With New Linemates Again
Wayne Simmonds doesn't even flinch anymore when he's assigned to a new line.
Due to injuries, the Flyers have had to make some adjustments, as was the case Tuesday when Michael Raffl's bout with pneumonia kept him off the ice and Simmonds found himself on a new line with White and Scott Laughton.
(Listen to Flyers insider Dave Isaac discuss the team's chances of making a playoff push and more):
"I'm used to it," Simmonds said. "We're professional athletes here. We should be able to play with everyone. I played with Whitey for the last three games now and I've played with Laughts for the majority of the time that he's been here. I know the way that both of them play and it shouldn't be too hard."
Simmonds better have a Rolodex of how every forward plays because he's been on the ice with darn near every one of them.
He's had 14 different linemates this season out of a possible 16. The only forwards he hasn't skated with are Jason Akeson (who was up for 12 games) and Blair Jones (who dressed for four).
