The Flyers are riding the momentum of back-to-back wins for the first time this season and if they want to make it three in a row, they will need to have revenge on their minds.
It was just under a month ago that the San Jose Sharks came into Wells Fargo Center and embarrassed the Flyers in their home opener to the tune of an 8-2 drubbing. The two teams meet again in San Jose on Saturday night.
Game time is at 10:30 p.m.
The Flyers turn to Cal Pickard for the start on Saturday in San Jose. Brian Elliott has received the bulk of the starts and with word that Michal Neuvirth is returning to Philadelphia for further examination for potentially another injury, it leaves the Flyers with little option to get Elliott a break. They will try to extend their winning streak with the backup on Saturday.
The Sharks turn to usual starter Martin Jones. Jones did not start the game in Philadelphia in October, but has been solid this season with a 2.66 GAA.
Flyers Projected Lineup
Injuries: James van Riemsdyk, Michael Raffl, Michal Neuvirth
Scratches: Andrew MacDonald, Tyrell Goulbourne
The Flyers made no chances to the lineup in Wednesday's practice, so expect the same lines as in Tuesday's win.
Sharks Projected Lineup
Scratches: Antti Suomela, Tim Heed, Radim Simek
