Blogs > In The Room with Anthony SanFilippo

Daily Times beat writer Anthony J. SanFilippo takes you inside the locker rooms of the Philadelphia Flyers and the rest of the NHL.

No Simon Gagne at practice today. He wasn't even floating around the locker room like guys usually do when given a day off while the team practices.

John Stevens said it was a "maintenance day" and that Gagne would be good to go tomorrow.

In other news....

- Look for a story from me tomorrow about Mike Knuble being the leading scorer in the NHL in the 0ver-35 sect (you might read it on another Website, but they stole my idea at practice... and yeah, I'm great friends with the reporter and gave him my blessing).

- Darroll Powe shattered the glass behind Antero Niittymaki's net this morning, forcing the team to switch over and practice on the Phantoms' rink.

- Marty Biron will start tomorrow against Florida. Look for Stevens to split his goalies this weekend, but it might not be how you'd expect. Biron has been awesome against the Isles the past two seasons winning 12 straight. Meanwhile, Antero Niittymaki has twice defeated the Bruins this season.
