Flyers forward Brayden Schenn will be in tonight's lineup as his team gets set to host the Blue Jackets tonight.
The news comes to a bit of a shock as just 48 hours prior, Schenn was blasted into the boards by Capitals forward Tom Wilson. Wilson got a five-minute major for charging and had a hearing at noon today. (UPDATE: There will not be any supplemental discipline for Wilson.)
Schenn said he is shocked he is able to play tonight so shortly after the dangerous hit he received on Tuesday.

Philadelphia came to Chicago tonight looking for a game against one of the league’s top teams to use as a measuring stick for their own success. After an embarrassing 7-2 thumping by the Hawks, they may want to reconsider that statement. 13 Blackhawk players would finish the game with at least a point, and Antti Raanta finished with a .933 SV%, proving yet again that he is a very capable goaltender.

All of the dreams of a positive season surrounding the Islanders have turned into nightmares. The Islanders fell to another division rival Saturday night as the Flyers held off the Isles late push with a 5-2 victory at a sold out Wells Fargo Center.
Behind another strong performance by Steve Mason and an offensive outburst, the Flyers were able to extend their point streak to five games and have now collected 12 of 16 possible points in their last eight games.
In fact, since the disastrous 7-0 loss at the hands of the Washington Capitals on Nov. 1, the Flyers have gone 5-1-2 and now sit just two points back from what would have them in playoff positioning.
