10:08 AM ET 10.16 | Flyers coach Peter Laviolette wouldn't commit to his starting goalie against visiting Pittsburgh on Saturday, but dropped hints that rookie Sergei "Bob" Bobrovsky would get the call. And, based on the fact that Brian Boucher struggled in the Flyers' 3-2 loss to Tampa Bay on Thursday, don't be surprised if Bobrovsky is given several starts in a row.

As a Pens fan, I'd say go with Boucher. Bobky did a pretty good number on the Pens the last time.

That he did, though I think the Pens are going to be struggling as long as they are dressing an AHL defense.

Kelsey Grammer could do the PA introduction

Well...it's not like he's been alone in that catagory...I like the way the TSN guys on Sports Center say Brobrovsky.
I was a little surprised the Bolts won that game after playing on the road in Montreal the night before. Looks like Stamkos is going to be for real again this season.

Kelsey and Mcquire would make a pretty good 'pair' putting their heads together.

Cory Schneider was available...

Being in Philly, I'm surprised he hasn't become some sort of deli sandwich yet.

Yes he does, and Kessel looks to get some love too! 4-0 HAAAA! YEAH!!!!

Nice pic!!!! They use the one of him falling down and getting hurt.....I think he's yelling I can't get up!

Speaking of which the Canucks will soon be glad they still have him as Robooby Lou has no game....

I know hes sort of funny looking but that has nothing to do with his play.

They would at that. And I'm sure McGuire's is filled with a bag of saline solution.

I disagree Hank. He has a game....not a very good one but it's a game. :-)

And I'm glad he's the last line of defense on a one line team.

Okay Hank actually Bobby Lou Erhoff and the twins are the only ones producing right now RL actually is playing real good (he usually doesn't play well the first 10 or so games) Man you're as anti-Canuck as Argo was pro-Leaf (could you imagine the posts we'd be seeing if he was on here everyday think I've seen him once )

I was thinking it's not saline but it starts with S ends with hit
