Philly goes with Zepp

Rob Zepp, the 33-year-old journeyman in his first NHL campaign, will make his second career start when the Flyers host the Bolts tonight in Philly.

Zepp, signed this summer out of the German league, was victorious in his big-league debut against Winnipeg last month, stopping 25 of 28 shots for a win in overtime. The veteran was returned to AHL Lehigh Valley shortly after defeating the Jets, but was recalled this past weekend after Philly’s No. 1 netminder, Steve Mason, suffered a lower-body injury.

For Tampa Bay, Evgeni Nabokov will be in goal.
