By now you're probably heard that Daniel Carcillo will be sitting this one out for the Flyers after the NHL suspended him for a cheap hit on Max Talbot during the final seconds of Wednesday's game. Apparently other roster issues may take a toll on Philly as well, as defenseman Kimmo Timonen missed practice yesterday and remains questionable for action tonight. You may remember Timonen went down early on his first shift in the first game of the series and looked to be hobbling around for the remainder of the game. From a Pittsburgh perspective it worked to the team's advantage.
Travis from BSH reports that Randy Jones also missed practice. Additionally there's a chance we may see regularly scratched defenseman Luca Sbisa take a spot on the blue line. I'll try and get something definitive by this afternoon.
Nothing to really repot from the Pitt camp, although as usual you can expect us to stay on top of things throughout the day. Personally I don't think it's up to Pitt to make the adjustments at this point. They came out the better team after Game One and now it's up to Philly to adjust to their play. If anything it's all about consistency now and maintaining the intensity from Game One.
