Needing response from Tuesday collapse, Flyers take on Avalanche
There was no more disheartening loss than the Flyers defeat on Tuesday at the hands of the Columbus Blue Jackets. That said, the loss was deserved, as the end result reflected the play on the ice.
Even so, being 1:04 from escaping with two points when every point counts is crushing and that's the Flyers challenge as a four-game road trip continues on Thursday night.
The Flyers head into snowy Denver to face the Colorado Avalanche, where they have not won a game since 2002.
The opening faceoff is set for 9 p.m.
