Jets v Flyers: It’s Always Sunny Versus Philadelphia

New, comments

The Jets look to not play like a bunch of jabronis against the Flyers.

Are the Jets for real? This is the question that’s been circling the hockey corner of the internet since Tuesday. That’s what happens when you blank the Chicago Blackhawks to improve their solid November record of 5-2-2. Tonight they face the Philadelphia Flyers who haven’t won since November 3rd. The two converging teams face off in what is expected to be an interesting matchup, well aside from the healthy scratch of offensive dynamo Shayne Gostisbehere.

I’m getting ready for tonight’s game by watching this:

Lineups:

Philadelphia Flyers:

Brayden Schenn - Claude Giroux - Wayne Simmonds

Travis Konecny - Sean Couturier - Jakub Voracek

Chris VandeVelde - Nick Cousins - Dale Weise

Michael Raffl - Pierre-Édouard Bellemare - Matt Read

Michael Del Zotto - Andrew MacDonald

Ivan Provorov - Mark Streit

Brandon Manning - Radko Gudas

Steve Mason

Anthony Stolarz

Winnipeg Jets:

Nikolaj Ehlers - Mark Scheifele - Patrik Laine

Marko Dano - Nic Petan - Blake Wheeler

Quinton Howden - Adam Lowry - Brandon Tanev

Chase De Leo - Andrew Copp - Chris Thorburn

Josh Morrissey - Dustin Byfuglien

Tyler Myers - Jacob Trouba

Ben Chiarot - Paul Postma

Connor Hellebuyck

Michael Hutchinson

Where to Watch:

6:00 CT on TSN3

Radio broadcast on TSN 1290

Who Do We Hate Tonight?:

Sean Couturier. Not because I dislike him or because #ShouldOfDrafted, but just to keep perpetuating the Scheifele/Couturier narrative.

Predictions:

Jets win 3-1.

Jets goals by Nikolaj Ehlers, Jacob Trouba, and Patrik Laine.

Flyers goal by Andrew MacDonald. Yep, that’s my guess.

What do you think about tonight's game? Excited for the Andrew MacDonald show? Think the Jets keep this momentum going? Let us know down in the comments below!
