Flyers Look to Extend Winning Streak

The Flyers enter game three of their franchise record 11 game road trip tonight in Atlanta. So far the Flyers have won the first two. In Pittsburgh it was Simon Gagne playing the hero, in Florida goaltender Antero Niitymaki took his shot and bailed the Flyers out in a shootout victory. Despite the numerous injuries the Flyers have continued to find ways to win. The team recently eclipsed the New York Rangers for first place in the Atlantic Division and have extended their point lead to three. The Flyers are also tied with Southeast Division leader Carolina, whom they face tomorrow and can overtake second place in the conference with a win tonight and a Carolina loss.

Atlanta on the other hand gets a big boost to its goaltending core as Kari Lehtonen make his return to the lineup and may get the start tonight. Rookie Michael Garnett has played well for the Thrashers in Lehtonen
