Martin St. Louis isn’t the only player making his debut following the trade deadline on Wednesday, as both the Philadelphia Flyers and Washington Capitals play on NBCSN tonight. NHL Live is already in gear, so get ready for the game with the live stream link below:
Granted, the two notable debuts are from trades that happened on Tuesday, rather than the quick turnaround for St. Louis. Dustin Penner was a surprise trade from Anaheim to the Capitals, but he’ll try to give his new team some secondary scoring as they fight desperately for a playoff spot. Other Washington additions aren’t expected to make the trip tonight.
The Flyers were relatively quiet in the trade deadline, but they did sent Andrej Meszaros away while adding Andrew MacDonald to the mix (the latter of which debuts for Philly).
The Capitals finds themselves one point behind second wild card holder Columbus as of this writing while Philadelphia is just a little more comfortable at sixth place with 70 standings points (two more than Washington), so there’s plenty on the line in this one.
