Flyers add defenceman

The Flyers upgraded their injury-riddled defence today by trading for Boston’s Andrew Alberts. In return, Boston picked up minor-league forward Ned Lukacevic and a conditional draft pick in 2009.

There was no word on whether the 6-foot-5, 220-pound Alberts would arrive in time   to face the Canadiens. A concussion limited him to 35 games last season and he had two assists. 

There will be no changes in the Canadiens lineup which means Kyle Chipchura will be a healthy scratch for the third consecutive game.

    Anyone know the stats on Laroque’s ‘upperbody,lol” injury??? I can’t wait for him to start crushing sculls,”heh heh”. Is the injury his groin or his hip??

    Montreal is getting outhustled and outworked. Nobody is getting in Biron’s face. Philly is forechecking us to death.

    P.S. And what the heck is up with only 15 posts so far. Last year there would have been a hundred by now. I got the impression everyone was excited for this year. Guess not.

    As bad as the habs played on Thursday, they actually look worse tonight.
    How come this is the 2nd game on the road that habs aren’t skating, and not sharp? oh, and everyone beats the leafs. O’Byrne is very slow, not an NHL D man.

    man this game can’t get anymore boring.. If the canadiens want t even have a chance at the cup they will go get a 4 defensemen.. There’s way to many stoppage of times in hockey it gets annoying.. And a bunch of useless penalties

    Latendresse is simply brutal. He seems incapable of making a hockey play out there. Please let this be the year they send him to Hamilton to learn the game.
