Michael Leighton will be starting tonight in Madison Square Garden in what will be the Flyers last game of 2009 before the Winter Classic at Fenway on Friday. Laviolette still has not decided on who will start in Boston according to Flyers OnTheFly. Flyers look to go for four-straight tonight to carry momentum in what will be an exciting outdoor match-up on Friday. Wish I could have gotten tickets.
They also reported that Oscars Bartulis has been selected to the Latvian Olympic hockey team as well as Ole-Kristian Tollefsen for Norway. Pronger and Richie have both made Team Canada with Prongs getting the ‘A’ along with Crosby as Niedermayer will be wearing the ‘C’. Carter is apparently an alternate and will play if anyone goes down.
