After having played 37 consecutive games in goal, Bernie Parent was given a night off. Coach Fred Shero went to Bobby Taylor.

Why go to Taylor now? Shero was asked.

"Because it's his turn," Shero replied.

Tuesday, figures to be "Bob's" turn. That is, Sergei Bobrovsky should get the start in Ottawa after Ilya Bryzgalov played the first four games for the Flyers and came out with a nice 3-0-1 record.

Bobrovsky was outstanding in the preseason. He even looked better than Bryzgalov through much of training camp.
