The Philadelphia Flyers may be a banged-up team now, even more so with the concussion Claude Giroux suffered Saturday. But Karl Alzner pointed out that they’re not short on weapons.

Take a look at the lines and that’s evident:


Scott Hartnell – Sean Couturier – Jaromir Jagr

Harry Zolnierczyk – Danny Briere – Wayne Simmonds

James van Riemsdyk – Max Talbot – Jakub Voracek

Jody Shelley – Matt Read – Zac Rinaldo

Scott Hartnell is having a career year with 14 goals and 12 assists. Matt Read, who will likely move up to the second line if coach Peter Laviolette shortens his bench, has 12 goals.

The defensive pairings are missing Chris Pronger, but the Flyers are still a three-pair team:

Kimmo Timonen – Braydon Coburn

Matt Carle – Marc-Andre Bourdon

Andrej Meszaros – Kevin Marshall
