The Flyers enter Monday's game coming off another convincing win on Long Island. Despite the 5-2 final, the Flyers did suffer a loss from that game.
Jake Voracek will be out on Monday and again on Thursday serving a two-game suspension issued on Sunday for interference on Johnny Boychuk.
Monday, the Flyers will face the Ottawa Senators, the team at the bottom of the NHL standings and a team that looks a lot different following the trade deadline two weeks ago. It is one of the rare games left on the Flyers schedule against a team outside the playoff picture.
Game time is at 7 p.m.
