Mike Sillinger's line, with Colin Forbes and Jody Hull, has played together in just four games, and has two goals and three points.
Brind'Amour has been everywhere, so he doesn't have a set line, although he does have three goals and eight points.
In a nutshell, the Flyers aren't getting much offense outside of Lindros' line.
``I don't think we have to tinker just yet,'' coach Roger Neilson said yesterday. ``We're getting chances, and if they keep shooting, it'll go in. I'd be more concerned if we weren't getting the scoring chances.''
He was particularly pleased with the offensive effort against the Rangers.
``Amazing,'' Neilson said. ``We had 27 scoring chances to their seven, and outshot them 37-13.''
Maneluk has no goals and three assists, but Neilson said he was not worried because the unit was clicking.
``So long as Maneluk is playing well, you just want a combination that works well, and we're getting that,'' Neilson said. ``When that happens, it doesn't matter who is scoring the goals.''
Neilson said that, eventually, he would change all four lines.
``I don't want to see the same lines all year,'' he said. ``What happens when you get injuries and guys haven't played together? I like to move people around to prepare for that.''
At the end of training camp, Neilson said he wasn't sure whether Maneluk would fit on any line other than the first. Now he says Maneluk could be moved to the third or fourth line to get a break from the top checking lines in the league.
At 190 pounds, Maneluk is 36 pounds lighter than LeClair and 46 lighter than Lindros. Since Lindros' line draws the top checking unit every night, every shift, Maneluk is more likely to be worn down by bigger checkers.
Lights out. During a 17-minute delay before the lights were up and running Saturday at the First Union Center, LeClair skated to the bench and said to Neilson, ``You didn't have anything to do with paying the electric bill here, did you?''
Neilson's power was turned off for more than a month after he failed to pay his own electric bill.
``That's one of the funniest lines I've heard this season,'' Neilson said. ``The whole bench was in stitches.''
Call to Campbell. Neilson criticized referee Bill McCreary for Dan McGillis' interference penalty against the Rangers' Kevin Stevens in overtime.
Stevens touched the puck, and McGillis hit him hard. Neilson thought McCreary never saw Stevens touch the puck, and saw only the hit.
``I called Colin Campbell and explained to him what's going to happen is, guys know they're going to get hit going behind the net,'' Neilson said, referring to the NHL's disciplinarian. ``What if they back off from touching the puck, allow themselves to get hit, and draw the penalty? That's going to happen now.''
Neilson also said he called Campbell to make certain he understood why he was criticizing McCreary. Nonetheless, Neilson will likely have to fork over a $7,500 fine. Neilson had been warned that another incident involving referee criticism would result in his paying a $7,500 fine from the preseason.
``I've already penciled in that I'm losing the money,'' he said.
