The Flyers managed to get a point in Columbus, but could not finish the job in a crucial game on the road, marking a bitter beginning to a three-game road trip against Metro opponents.
They don't get any time to wallow in the overtime loss from Thursday night. On Friday, they get right back on the ice to face the New Jersey Devils.
Game time is at 7 p.m.
The Flyers are making NHL history on Friday. Cam Talbot gets the start, meaning he is the eighth goalie to suit up and play in a game for the Flyers this season. Talbot was traded to the Flyers on Feb. 15 from Edmonton and makes his debut with the team against the Devils.
Back from injury, Cory Schneider is expected to get the start. He returned on Feb. 7 and has made seven starts since. He has won four of his last five starts, including a pair of shutouts and a 34-save performance on Monday against Montreal.
Flyers Projected Lineup
Injuries: Carter Hart, Michal Neuvirth
Scratches: Andrew MacDonald, Sam Morin
The Flyers will likely go with the same lineup as Thursday night, but nothing will be confirmed until closer to warmups.
Devils Projected Lineup
Injuries: Kyle Palmieri, Taylor Hall, Pavel Zacha, Miles Wood, John Quenneville, Mirco Mueller
Scratches: Steven Santini
