OPPORTUNITY OPENS UP FOR ASHAM
A minor injury to Mark Letestu (upper body) and Matt Cooke's antics have opened up a previous logjam at the forward position.
The beneficiary tonight will be winger Arron Asham who will return to the lineup for the first time since February 1, after being sidelined due to a concussion.
Asham who played extremely well down the stretch last season for Philadelphia, should have a chance to showcase himself to the coaching staff for several games now as he looks to get a regular spot in the top-12 back.
