The Philadelphia Flyers (31-29-17) head to Raleigh to take on the Carolina Hurricanes (28-38-11) in what is their last road game of the 2014-15 season. This is the fourth of five meetings between the two teams. Game time at PNC Arena is 1:00.
We are at the moment of truth on the NHL regular season. With one full week to go, seven teams have secured their spot in the postseason. Two teams have locked up division titles and the President's trophy is still up for grabs.
The Anaheim Ducks became the first team with 50 wins and the first team to clinch a division title. The Ducks clinched their third straight Pacific Division crown with a 5-1 win over the Edmonton Oilers on Wednesday night.
This week's Future Flyers Report summarizes a game apiece played by the Lehigh Valley Phantoms and Reading Royals, while also breaking down performances in the CHL playoffs -- where two prospects have advanced to second-round play so far. After the ever-glorious jump, check out how Flyers prospects have fared this week.
Wednesday night's game was no joke and no fluke. The Flyers simply have the Pittsburgh Penguins number.
For the third time this season, the Flyers handed the Penguins a loss in what may be one of their best games of the season, a 4-1 win at Consol Energy Center, a building where the Flyers have won 11 of 13 regular season games.
For whatever reason, the Flyers seem to put their best foot forward when in Pittsburgh.
Thanks in part to a two-goal night from Brayden Schenn as well as points from eight different players, the Flyers on Wednesday beat Pittsburgh for the third time this season, by a 4-1 margin.
Schenn scored his 15th and 16th goals of the season at the 12:43 mark of the second period and on a power play just 49 seconds into the third frame, deflecting a Jakub Voracek shot for his fourth multi-goal game of the season.
