The Pittsburgh Penguins will take on the Philadelphia Flyers tonight for the first time this season.

Injury news has once again dominated the coverage surrounding the Pens.

Previously, Kris Letang and Zbynek Michalek were sidelined with a concussion. Deryk Engelland had a lower body injury. Yesterday, the Penguins received the news that Sidney Crosby would be forced to sit out two games as a "precaution."

To literally add insult to injury, the Boston Bruins and Tim Thomas basically kicked the Penguins around the Consol Energy Center in the team's last game. With all the injury news and a bad game directly in the rear-view mirror, it helps to remind yourself that it is only December still.

The Flyers always present a challenge as well as a spirited rivalry game. Their team is a bit different then it was in previous seasons, so let's take a look at four players to watch out for in tonight's contest.

Whatever the result of tonight's game, it sure is nice to know that the NHL preserved this rivalry at its fullest with the realignment.
