Bruins-Flyers: Beleskey out, Bergeron TBD, Manning out, Luke Schenn in

8 Comments

Some lineup notes for tonight’s Flyers-Bruins game on NBCSN:

— For Boston, winger Matt Beleskey is out with an upper-body injury while center Patrice Bergeron may or may not play due to personal reasons. Bergeron’s wife is apparently expecting the couple’s first child. Hence, the possibility Chris Kelly could be centering a line between Brad Marchand and Brett Connolly

Meanwhile, Loui Eriksson could take Beleskey’s spot on the other top line, with David Krejci and David Pastrnak.

The Bruins are back home after winning two straight on the road and improving their record to 2-3-0. Their three losses to start the season all came at home.

— For Philadelphia, Luke Schenn will reportedly replace Brandon Manning on defense. It will be Schenn’s third game of the season. He hasn’t played since Oct. 10 in a 7-1 loss to Florida. R.J. Umberger is also back in; he’ll replace Sam Gagner.

The Flyers lost 2-1 last night at home versus Dallas. Michal Neuvirth will start in goal versus the Bruins, coming off two straight shutouts.
