There also may be an exchange of K’s in the lineup for the Isles, who did not have a morning skate to help tip us off: Your goalie is Thomas Greiss. But...did Greiss tip us off to Otto Koivula making his debut?
Thomas Greiss led #Isles onto the ice, then sort of stepped aside to let Otto Koivula go first. So, maybe tonight's the night?— Andrew Gross (@AGrossNewsday) November 16, 2019

Leo Komarov, who returned from injury just last game, would sit if that lineup holds — though Gross later updated that Komarov took some rushes in place of Johnston.
The Flyers are on the back end of a back-to-back after losing last night to Ottawa, of all teams. Philadelphia remains without Nolan Patrick and Scott Laughton. They’ll have Brian Elliot in goal.
