The Flyers are still searching for their first win of 2019. Their loss to the Flames in overtime was the team's sixth straight, dating back to Dec. 27.
The Flyers opponent on Monday is another team that has had a disappointing season. The St. Louis Blues are tied with the Flyers at 36 points, but with two fewer games played this season, sit one position ahead of the Flyers in the league standings. Both teams are just one point out of the NHL's basement.
Game time is at 7 p.m.
