"They definitely make it easy for me," McGinn, 23, said of his linemates before the game. "They let me know what I need to be doing out there and that helps a lot. I can definitely learn from them."
McGinn's job is to do the dirty work for his linemates - crash the net, create havoc in front, open space for Giroux and Voracek.
Hartnell will be sidelined for two to four weeks with an upper-body injury.
McGinn talks every day with his brother Jamie, a left winger with Colorado.
"We're both kind of similar styles, so if one of us is down on something, or something isn't working, we give each other some quick [advice]," McGinn said.
Flyers coach Craig Berube was asked how he can get his team to avoid dumb penalties. "Don't watch me play," he cracked.
Added Berube: "It's just discipline, a change of a mind-set. The Flyers have a reputation - we all know that - and it's got to change. It's 2013, you can't keep going to the penalty box and doing stupid things out there. A lot of it, the hooking, the holding, for me is unacceptable. Your feet have to move."
Nico Cassabria, a 6-year-old from Blackwood who is battling cancer of the nervous system, and his family were guests of the Flyers Tuesday on Cancer Awareness night. Nico high-fived the Flyers in the runway as they took the ice for pregame warm-ups, and he was to be given a stick and other gifts from the Flyers' Luke and Brayden Schenn after the game. He was named the game's No. 1 star.
Sean Couturier began the night with a 55.6 percent success rate in faceoffs, up from 43.9 percent last season. . . . GM Paul Holmgren told the Hockey News what has widely been reported for the last year - that Chris Pronger will never play again because of post-concussion symptoms.
