One more game remains before the Flyers head into the bye week and the All-Star break. They enter looking for their second three-game winning streak this season.
The Flyers have won three of their last four games since snapping an eight-game losing streak last Thursday. They face the Montreal Canadiens, a team locked in a battle for one of the top three spots in the Atlantic Division.
Game time is at 7 p.m.
Carter Hart's last start was one of his most impressive to date. The Flyers rallied back from a 2-0 deficit for the second straight game and Hart made a career-high 39 saves in the 4-3 win. Since Jan. 5, Hart has made 196 saves, leading the NHL. He also has a .925 save percentage in the six games since Jan. 5.
Since allowing six goals in a loss to Tampa on Dec. 29, Antti Niemi has won his last three starts, allowing just five goals in the process. In his last start against Florida, Niemi made 52 saves on 53 shots. Niemi is expected to get the start after Carey Price started on Friday.
Flyers Projected Lineup
Injuries: Michal Neuvirth, Brian Elliott, Anthony Stolarz, Corban Knight
Scratches: Dale Weise, Christian Folin
No changes are expected to the Flyers lineup from Saturday's game.
