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.
Brian Elliott gets another start on Monday night against Ottawa after making 25 saves in Saturday's win over the Islanders. Elliott has won four of his six starts since returning from injury.
Craig Anderson has lost four straight starts, allowing three goals or more in each. He most recently allowed three goals on 31 shots in a 3-2 loss late in regulation to the Bruins.
Flyers Projected Lineup
Injuries: Michal Neuvirth
Scratches: Jake Voracek, Cam Talbot, Sam Morin
With Jake Voracek serving his suspension, the Flyers do not have an extra forward, so they will go with the 11-forward, seven-defensemen lineup on Monday night. Andrew MacDonald comes back into the lineup. Carter Hart will serve as backup to Brian Elliott tonight.
Senators Projected Lineup
Injuries: Christian Jaros
