To this point, the Flyers schedule has been relatively spaced apart with several days between games. But a common theme to their complete 2019-20 schedule is the amount of back-to-backs they will play.
Their first of 17 this season concludes on Wednesday night, as the Flyers return to the ice following Tuesday's 3-1 loss in Calgary to close out a three-game Western Canada road trip against the Edmonton Oilers.
Game time is at 9:30 p.m.
It's a homecoming for Carter Hart, a Sherwood Park, Alberta native from just outside Edmonton. Hart has started his sophomore season strong with a 2-0-1 record, a 1.62 GAA and .938 save percentage.
Mikko Koskinen makes his third start of the season and first since Oct. 10, when he allowed three goals and made 28 saves in a win over the Devils.
Flyers Projected Lineup
Injuries: Nolan Patrick
Scratches: Sam Morin, Connor Bunnaman
The Flyers did not have a morning skate after playing on Tuesday night. There is always a chance that Connor Bunnaman or Sam Morin could slot into the lineup, but that will not be known until closer to game time.
Oilers Projected Lineup
Injuries: Adam Larsson, Joakim Nygard
Scratches: Gaetan Haas, Brandon Manning
