The Flyers got back on the right track on Thursday night with a big win on the road. They erased a 2-0 deficit in the first and managed to score twice in the third period in a 5-3 win over the Hurricanes, snapping a four-game winning streak for Carolina.
The Calgary Flames come in going in the opposite direction. The Flames enter Saturday's game on a six-game losing streak, including five regulation losses in a row. On the six-game losing streak, the Flames have been outscored, 23-5, and have been shut out in their last three road games, allowing 14 goals in the process.
Game time is at 1 p.m.
Carter Hart gets back between the pipes for the Flyers on Saturday. Hart was pulled in the second period of the Flyers 5-2 loss to Florida on Tuesday after allowing four goals on 18 shots.
David Rittich is expected to get the start for the Flames on Saturday. Rittich has been in goal for the last three games of the six-game losing streak, allowing five goals in Thursday's loss to the Blues. Rittich did make 21 saves in a 3-1 win over the Flyers on Oct. 15.
