A long layoff hurt the Flyers on Friday night. Lucky for them, there is not much time to dwell on the recent opast and a chance at redemption waiting on Saturday.
Redemption comes in two forms in this Saturday night game between the Flyers and the Montreal Canadiens. The Flyers had a three-game winning streak snapped by Columbus on Friday in a 4-3 loss where all the ill-effects of a five-day break were on display. The Flyers also blew a 3-0 third-period lead to Montreal on Oct. 11, falling in a shootout, 4-3.
The opening face-off from Montreal is set for 7 p.m.
