NHL Buzz: Couturier plays for Flyers against Islanders
Johansson back for Wild after missing 16 games; Kravtsov could practice Tuesday for Rangers.
"No doubt that 'Coots' is probably our best and most consistent forward at playing the right way, at checking when it's time to check, at making the right plays at the lines, and it's all against tough opposition," Vigneault said. "When he's in our lineup, we're a better team. I'm keeping my fingers crossed, but it looks good for tonight."
Couturier has scored 19 points (six goals, 13 assists) in 18 games. The Flyers are 5-4-2 in 11 games without Couturier this season, 10-7-1 with him in the lineup.
