PHILADELPHIA -- For the second time in a five-day span, the Flyers fell to the Carolina Hurricanes, losing 3-1 on Thursday.
With the loss, the Flyers (33-30-18) fall to 1-3-1 against the Hurricanes this season, and 1-5-3 since the Metropolitan Division was formed last season. The Orange and Black haven't won multiple games against Carolina since the 2012-13 campaign, when they swept the three-game season series.
The Flyers are set to close out their Metropolitan Division slate of games, as they welcome the Carolina Hurricanes to Wells Fargo Center in the penultimate game of their respective seasons. Both teams just met five days ago, with the Hurricanes winning 3-2 in a shootout.
