Pavel Kubina saw just 45 seconds of power-play time in his Philadelphia debut on Tuesday night, but he is expected to get more minutes as he learns the team's system.
"Whatever they need from me, I'll be there," Kubina said. "I'm still learning. The coaches will work with me and show me clips. They were really smart with me, I hadn't skated in over a week." The veteran defenseman is the Flyers' first right-handed rearguard since Eric Desjardins last patrolled the back end in 2005-06 and coach Peter Laviolette wants to take advantage of his big shot.
