Flyers team scope

Defenseman Radko Gudas could make his season debut for the Philadelphia Flyers. Gudas was suspended for the first six games of the season by the NHL Department of Player Safety for an illegal hit during a preseason game. He has been skating and traveling with the Flyers. After losing 3-1 at the Montreal Canadiens on Monday, the Flyers did not have a morning skate Tuesday, so any lineup changes won’t be known until game time. But it is expected the Michal Neuvirth will start in goal after Steve Mason made 30 saves against the Canadiens in his third straight start.

Players To Watch

O’Reilly has three goals and two assists in his past three games. … Voracek has three goals and four assists during a four-game point streak.
