Captain Claude Giroux has two new linemates. Flyers reporter Bill Meltzer tweets that Giroux is paired with Vinny Lecavalier and rookie Michael Raffl. While Brayden Schenn centers the second line with Tye McGinn and Jake Voracek. Sean Couturier centers Matt Read and Wayne Simmonds on the third line while Max Talbot centers Adam Hall and Zac Rinaldo on the fourth line.
It is an interesting move as Raffl has been a pleasant surprise for the Flyers this season and showed offensive promise during the preseason. Lecavalier, 33, was one of the few Flyers that actually got off to a good start offensively this season. The former-Lightning captain has one goal and two assists in five games with the Flyers posting a minus-1 rating.
Maybe this is what Giroux and the Flyers need to start filling out the stat sheet? At this point, it can't hurt.
