Flyers Featured Columnist Dominic Perilli here, following every second of tonight's exciting game. This game will be very emotional and fun to watch as two of the best teams in the NHL go toe-to-toe.

Tonight is a very special night in Philadelphia. Simon Gagne (former Flyer of 11 years) returns to Philly for the first time since being traded to Tampa Bay in the summer of 2010. He has always been a key part to the Flyers' offense, especially in the postseason.

Gagne's career with the Flyers was plagued by injuries and he almost always seemed to be scratched. Nevertheless, Simon is a loved player here in Philly and tonight Flyers' fans everywhere will be cheering for him upon his return.

The Tampa Bay Lightning are a very hot team right now. The ever-so-dangerous Steven Stamkos and Ryan Malone are leading the team to victory as of late. Stamkos currently has a team high three goals as well as two assists and a one plus/minus rating. Malone is not too far behind with one goal, three assists and a zero plus/minus.

Okay well then without further adieu, let's get this show on the road! Cheers everyone!
