Notes On A Game Day

12/18/2018 at 2:19pm EST

from Dana Wakiji of DetroitRedWings.com,

The Philadelphia Flyers have been going through a tumultuous time.

On Monday, they fired head coach Dave Hakstol and replaced him with Scott Gordon, who was coaching the Flyers' AHL affiliate, the Lehigh Valley Phantoms.

In addition, the team put goaltender Anthony Stolarz on injured reserve and recalled Carter Hart, who will make his NHL debut against the Wings.

"Not worrying about anything to do with the other side," Blashill said. "Just worry about us playing great hockey. We got to make sure we come out with a great sense of urgency. We got to make sure that we're not giving up easy chances and we got to make sure that we're playing 60 minutes of great hockey."

For Cholowski, it will be his first time playing in Philadelphia.

"Historic team. Broad Street Bullies, I always watched those clips of what their team was like," Cholowski said. "Obviously they're a big, strong team, lots of tough players and they're going to try to get the puck behind us and grind on us. We have to get back fast and move the puck up and use our speed."

About Abel to Yzerman

Welcome to Abel to Yzerman, a Red Wing blog since 1977. No other site on the internet has better-researched, fact-laden and better prepared discussions than A2Y. Re-phrase: we do little research, find facts and stats highly overrated and claim little to no preparation. There are 19 readers of A2Y. No more, no less. All of them, except maybe one, are juvenile in nature. Reminding them of that in the comment section will only encourage them to prove that.
