Philadelphia Flyers (14-15-4)

Last Game: 5-4 SO loss vs. Washington Capitals


  • Flyers looking to avenge their SO loss after blowing a 4-1 lead against the Capitals on Sunday. Steve Mason is expected to be the starting goaltender and looks to bounce back and find his groove after Sundays loss.
  • Playing a full 60 minutes is key.  The problem the Flyers have faced in the past is not playing a full 60 minutes and forgetting to play in the third period. Playing a full 60 with a strong forecheck, and good defense could be the recipe for Flyers success.
  • Vinny Lecavalier is not expected to return until January, but the Flyers first line including newcomer Michael Raffl is heating up and combined for a plus minus 7 on Sunday, even with the loss.
