BLUES (5-6-2) at FLYERS (8-4-1)

Last 10: St. Louis 3-5-2; Philadelphia 5-4-1

Season series: This is the teams' only meeting this season. In their only game last season, Chris Mason made 36 saves and T.J. Oshie and Brad Boyes each had a pair of assists as the Blues won 4-0 in St. Louis. The Blues haven't played in Philadelphia since Feb. 10, 2007.

Big Story: How will the flu-ridden Flyers hold up in the second game of a back-to-back set, following Friday's game in Buffalo?

Team Scope:

Blues -- St. Louis is struggling to find offense right now. They have lost three straight, which included two shutout losses and Thursday's 2-1 overtime defeat against Calgary. Part of the problem is their suddenly defective power play. The Blues were eighth in the League last season at 20.5 percent; they entered Friday's games 25th at 14.6 percent, and have just one power-play goal in their last seven games.

Flyers -- Philadelphia coach John Stevens went into Friday's game unsure who or what kind of lineup he'd have. Already without a pair of top-six forwards and key defensemen, five players missed practice earlier in the week with the flu, while others tried to skate through it. "We'll have to do much like we did in the last two games and try to use our whole bench," Stevens told reporters Friday. "We'll try to cut down on the minutes on some guys and utilize everybody that's playing in our lineup."

Who's Hot -- St. Louis goalie Chris Mason has just two wins in his last four games, but he's allowed more than two goals just once in that span. He also hasn't allowed a power-play goal in two straight, which could come in handy against the Flyers and their top-rated extra-man unit. Flyers rookie forward James van Riemsdyk has 7 points in his four-game scoring streak. Defenseman Chris Pronger has a goal, 5 points and a plus-7 rating in his last three games.

Injury Report -- Philadelphia defenseman Ryan Parent remains out with a groin injury, while forward Danny Briere remains day-to-day with a pulled muscle in his leg. Defenseman Matt Carle has been the Flyer most affected by the flu; he played 21 minutes Friday, and it's questionable how much stamina he'll have for Saturday's game. For St. Louis, defenseman Carlo Colaiacovo is questionable due to the flu, as is Andy McDonald, who is suffering from an upper-body injury. McDonald practiced Thursday but did not take contact.

Stat Pack -- This will be just the fourth meeting in the last five seasons between the teams. The Flyers have lost just once at home to the Blues in the last 12 years, going 5-1-0; the Blues' last win in Philadelphia was Dec. 7, 2002.

Puck Drop -- One of the reasons for the Flyers' recent success has been goals from their bottom-six forwards. Darroll Powe (4 goals), Arron Asham (3) and Daniel Carcillo 2 have combined for 9 goals through 13 games. Those three had just 14 goals all of last season.

It makes no sense, so that's what will happen.

Continuing the trend of nothing making sense this year with the Blues, something like this will probably happen.

Hopefully the back-to-back games and the flu will give the Blues a chance to actually outlast an opponent.

Final score will be 1-0, just don't know which team will get the lone goal. But it probably won't be whoever has brewer on their team.

Pet peeve: why the hell is plus/minus always written with a dash? Is it really wrong to write "plus 7," or does it absolutely have to be "plus -7?" I can understand if the player has a minus rating, but we have to put a dash if the person is in the plus? Why not "plus +7?"

LOL.

Anyone catch Bernie's comments when they discussed him being between/on the benches even though it is a road game?

Bernie has some issues with his new job and Pang taking his place. ME-OW.

Also, if Eller keeps up his play...he's staying put.

Also...two rookies on the first powerplay unit.
