Role reversal for Flyers and Senators in late-season matchup
Separation in the standings was only temporary. As the schedule turns to Saturday, the Philadelphia Flyers (38-25-13) are in need of more points to restore any cushion in the standings.
The opponent on Saturday is an interesting one for the Flyers. Last season, it was the Ottawa Senators (36-33-9) who were riding the wave of incredible late-season success into the playoffs.
This time, the Flyers are trying to be that team and get a tough test in the Senators, one of those teams already eliminated with nothing else to play for but pride.
Faceoff between the Flyers and Senators is set for 1 p.m.
