As the Flyers gear up to close out the home portion of the 2015 calendar year, they prepare to do so against a Vancouver Canucks team that has been sluggish on the road as of late. In their last five road games, the Canucks are 0-3-2 (6-7-5 overall), giving them a hapless start to a six-game road trip that has seen them fall to Chicago and Minnesota so far.
For the second and final time this season (barring, of course, any interesting/unlikely Stanley Cup Final scenarios), the Flyers and Canucks will face off. While the Canucks have faltered lately, the Orange and Black have dropped their last three games against the Canucks (last winning on Dec. 30, 2013), and have not beaten them at home since Oct. 12, 2011 (when the Canucks were the defending Western Conference champions).
The opening face-off from Wells Fargo Center is set for 7 p.m.
