This could mean that at best, Brad Richards, is a game-time decision.

Haley, the former Islander, has a reputation as a brawler. The 26-year-old was heavily involved in the wild brawl with the Penguins last season, and has 158 PIM in 56 games with the Whale this season.  He's 5-10, 205 and had seven fighting majors wiht the Islanders last season.

In 43 NHL games, Haley has two goals, one assist and 151 penalty minutes.

Flyers are healthier upfront---and have added Simon Gagne---than in the first meeting. They have won five of seven and are in eighth place, a notch above the Rangers. Philly has lost last five at MSG.
