Flyers close out home season against Isles tonight

Flyers fans ... you have one more big chance this season to see your favorite team tonight, when they welcome the New York Islanders to town.
Um ... plenty of good scalper seats will be available.
What to look for? Well, after starting Steve Mason in goal for two straight games and five of the past eight, coach Peter Laviolette has decided to give Ilya Bryzgalov the start against the surging Isles. You might wonder if it's the last start Bryzgalov might make for the club, if you're a believer in the speculation about the Flyers using a compliance buyout on the Bryz in the offseason.
Myself ... I think he's here another year.
Anyway, other guys on the outs, pending free agents Mike Knuble, Kent Huskins and Kurtis Foster, all came off the practice ice late today, meaning they likely won't play tonight. Instead, it'll essentially be five Phantoms and Luke Schenn on the blue line tonight, which can be entertaining.
Another reason to want to watch this last home game: The Flyers team awards will be presented before the game.
You really have to be a fan to want to see that this year.
