RICHIE RESTS, DANNY IS READY, MARTY TO START
It's what they call a "maintenance day" for Richards.
In other words, the guys plays a boatload of minutes and the Flyers seem to have a game every other night, so to save his legs - he gets a day off.
He will play tonight against Buffalo.
So too will Danny Briere, who has skated for three straight days and claims to be feeling a lot better after ripping through some adhesions where he had his groin surgery last Thursday.
John Stevens remains cautious, but Briere is pretty confident he will play.
Meanwhile, Marty Biron has a chance to put a stranglehold on the starting goalie job when he makes his second straight start and third consecutive appearance tonight against his former team.
Tomorrow, look for a story from me on the continued improvement of Braydon Coburn with a little note on what to expect from the general manager's meeting this week in Florida.
