Eric Fehr (upper body) and Quintin Laing (flu) will not play against the Flyers tonight. Alexander Semin will be back, and Tyler Sloan will play forward to plug in the other hole.

Based on yesterday’s practice, this is how the forwards would look if Bruce Boudreau doesn’t mess with things:

Giroux-Aucoin-Clark

Sloan-Steckel-Bradley

Mike Green said he is playing tonight, and Boudreau said he’s fine to play. John Erskine is not ready to return, so the d-pairings could look the same as the past couple of games.

Boudreau did say that Boyd Gordon (back) is expected to be ready to return to practice tomorrow. He will miss his fifth straight game tonight because of his wonky back.
