The Flyers managed to avoid nearing history any further on Saturday with a win for the first time in seven games. Despite their current losing streak being snapped at six games, they still closed out the month of February with just their third win in the last two months.
That said, the team was always closing in on the end result soon enough, especially after leading in multiple games against high-quality opponents. Now that they have a win under their belts, they look to continue that against another high-powered offense, facing the Edmonton Oilers.
Game time is 7 p.m.
Carter Hart gets another start for the Flyers. Hart made 27 saves on 28 shots in the win on Saturday, snapping a personal three-game losing streak. Hart was also in goal against the Oilers in October and made 34 saves in a 5-3 Flyers win.
Mikko Koskinen gets the start for the Oilers. Koskinen made 44 saves in his last start on Saturday in a win over the Florida Panthers. He has wins in three straight starts.
Flyers Scratches: Sean Couturier (injury), Ryan Ellis (injury), Nate Thompson (injury), Kevin Hayes (injury), Wade Allison (injury), Max Willman (healthy), Kevin Connauton (healthy)
