EMERY TO GET SOME OCCASSIONAL TIME OFF
After a quirky schedule that made the Flyers take 43 days to play their first 16 games, They now will play eight times in the next 13 days and then following a four day break they will jam a dozen games into 20 December days before Christmas.
So Brian Boucher, who has been collecting dust on the end of the bench, will get the call more frequently.
“Ray has played really well and the schedule has allowed him to get the rest he’s needed,” Stevens said. “But now we’re going to start to travel a lot and we’re going to need (Boucher) to win us hockey games. Just like he did last year in San Jose when (Evgeni) Nabokov needed rest or was a little injured, Boosh came in and played great and we’re going to need that starting with this road trip.”
