Question of the Day
LAST SEASON: 47-23-12, 106 points. Lost to Boston 4-0 in conference semifinals.
COACH: Peter Laviolette, 3rd season with Flyers, 75-47-17; 11th overall, 319-231-76 in NHL.
ADDED: C Brayden Schenn, RW Wayne Simmonds, RW Jakub Voracek, G Ilya Bryzgalov, Signed RW Jaromir Jagr, C Maxime Talbot, D Andreas Lilja.
LOST: C Mike Richards, C Jeff Carter, LW Ville Leino, C Darroll Powe, RW Kris Versteeg, D Sean O’Donnell, G Brian Boucher, LW Dan Carcillo, RW Nikolay Zherdev, D Danny Syvret, D Nick Boynton.
PLAYER TO WATCH: Bryzgalov. The Flyers might finally have the goalie they need to win the Stanley Cup for the first time since 1975. However, Bryzgalov will face pressure unlike before in Phoenix and will have to shoulder the blame if the Flyers fall short again. Bryzgalov has won 78 regular-season games the past two seasons but went 3-8 in two postseason series losses.
LAST SEASON: 49-25-8, 106 points. Lost to Tampa Bay 4-3 in first round.
COACH: Dan Bylsma, 4th season with Penguins, 114-56-19; 4th overall in NHL.
ADDED: LW Steve Sullivan, D Boris Valabik, D Alexandre Picard, C Jason Williams.
LOST: C Maxime Talbot, C Mike Rupp, LW Brett Sterling, RW Chris Conner, RW Eric Godard, RW Alex Kovalev, C Mike Comrie.
PLAYER TO WATCH: Sidney Crosby. The Penguins’ captain hasn’t played since early January because of a concussion and has yet to even take part in a contact practice. Pittsburgh managed to get into the playoffs last season despite lengthy absences of Crosby and fellow star centers Evgeni Malkin and Jordan Staal. The task might be tougher this time if they have to go without Crosby for another long stretch.
