For the first time in weeks, the Florida Panthers will not have Sergei Bobrovsky in net as Alex Lyon takes over tonight against the host Philadelphia Flyers.

Bobrovsky made his 13th consecutive start for Florida on Monday in Detroit. The last time he did not play was on Feb. 14 in St. Louis when Spencer Knight got the start.

Lyon is making his first NHL appearance since making 37 saves in an overtime win against the Bruins prior to the All-Star break.

Florida will also be without center Sam Bennett after he left that game in the third period and did not return.

The Panthers activated Givani Smith off long-term injured reserve Tuesday afternoon and he will return to the lineup.

Expect Anton Lundell to slide up to center the second line with Eric Staal taking the third. Colin White would move from wing to center the fourth.

Florida comes into the night riding a seven-game point streak (6-0-1) and is going for its third winning streak of three straight games this season.

The rebuilding Flyers have lost five of their past six games and are 5-12-5 since Jan. 22.
