Flyers shuffle lines to spur energy

In response to the lack of aggression and energy shown by the Flyers the past two games, coach John Stevens played Dr. Frankenstein  in today’s practice, in an attempt to promote more balanced scoring.

The Flyers moved Danny Briere to a line with Scott Hartnell and Jeff Carter, while Joffrey Lupul was moved to a line with Mike Richards and Daniel Carcillo.  Claude Giroux was moved to the top line with Simon Gagne and Mike Knuble.

“The last couple games we didn’t create a lot of chances offensively,” said Simon Gagne. “Sometimes a little bit of change will bring that energy or that thing you’re looking for.”

The Flyers arrived in Buffalo this afternoon to take on the struggling Sabres, Friday night at 7 p.m.
