The 23-year-old Garnett became the first netminder in franchise
history to post back-to-back shutouts this week when he blanked
New Jersey and Montreal.
In Monday's 4-0 triumph over the Canadiens, Garnett made 36
saves in his 15th consecutive start. Jaroslav Modry took care
of the offense with a goal and three assists as the Thrashers
won for the fifth time in six games.
However, it is not a guarantee that Garnett will start Wednesday
as Atlanta activated fellow netminder Kari Lehtonen from
injured reserve on Monday. He had missed nearly three months
with a groin injury suffered in the season opener.
The Flyers have won three straight games, including the first
two of their franchise-record 11-game road trip.
Philadelphia, which ranks second in the Eastern Conference with
130 goals, is coming off a 3-2 shootout win vs. Florida on
Monday as rookie Ben Eager scored twice in regulation and Michal
Handzus netted the lone goal in the shootout.
Antero Niittymaki made 34 saves and stopped all four shootout
attempts to improve to 4-0-1 since replacing Robert Esche, who
is out with a groin injury.
The season series between the teams is tied at 1-1.
