It's official, Philadelphia Flyers Dave Hakstol has decided goalie Brian Elliott will take a seat Saturday. The Flyers are 4-6-0 to start the season and Elliott is 2-5-0 with a 3.39 goals against average and .886 save percentage, far off his career average 2.47 goals against and .912 save percentage. Hakstol is hoping that Michal Neuvirth can come in and play his first game in seven months and hopefully make a difference. "We don't need a goaltender to go in and necessarily be the spark," Hakstol said. "That's not what we're asking. We need everyone to go out and do their job but somebody's got to be the spark. I'll guarantee you that. Somebody's got to be the spark to push us in the right direction. I don't know if that will be a goaltender, a defenseman, one of our forwards. I don't know if it's gonna be a great defensive play or a highlight-reel goal or a big save. But yeah, we need a spark from an area in our lineup to just push us in the right direction. That's what builds some of the confidence and some of the swagger that we're talking about."
The right decision by Hakstol?The rest of the lineup to follow later today.
