Flyers Look To Get Back On Track Against Bruins Tonight.

October 25, 2018  (3:43 PM)

The Philadelphia Flyers look to get back in the good graces of their GM tonight with a win against Boston. Flyers general manager Ron Hextall expressed his frustration earlier this week as the team has lost two of their last three games. The team defense has been almost non-existent having given up 37 goals in nine games, just over four goals a game!Brian Elliott gets the start for the Flyers and considering the fact he currently sits with a 2-4-0 record and a 3.59 goals against average and .882 save percentage, it might be tough for the Flyers tonight. Add to the fact the team has a 1-6-2 record in Boston going back to 2012. "I think as a team, we're not in a position we want to be right now. We know we have a good team in here, we know we can win a lot of games. It just feels like this team, when we're searching for that confidence and we don't have that swagger, we don't win games." Flyers captain Claude Giroux said. Giroux continues to be one of the few bright spots on the team and currently has five points in his last four games. Youngster Nolan Patrick has come back from injury putting up some numbers with two goals in two games. Jordan Weal and Christian Folin are healthy scratches for the night as is Calvin Pickard as Michal Neuvirth will backup Elliott tonight. Bruins backup goalie Jaroslav Halak gets the start for Boston.Here's a look at the full projected lineups for tonight's game which can be seen on NBC Sports Philly.Flyers projected lineupFORWARDS
