The Flyers closed out the month of February with a win over Washington to snap a six-game losing streak, only to get silenced by the Edmonton Oilers three nights later in their first game of March. It shouldn't come as a surprise anymore that the wins just are few and far between for a team that has certainly been more competitive within games, but lacks the talent to keep up with the NHL's top tier.
That stretch of games will continue on Thursday night as the Flyers welcome the Minnesota Wild to town for the sixth game of an eight-game homestand.
Game time is 7 p.m.
Carter Hart gets back in goal for the Flyers. Hart was solid in Tuesday's game, making 29 saves despite taking the loss. Hart makes the start in the team's third straight game after missing a couple of games with an eye infection.
Cam Talbot gets the start for the Wild. Talbot is currently in a rough stretch, on a personal four-game losing streak. He has allowed at least four goals in each of those four starts.
Flyers Scratches: Sean Couturier (injury), Ryan Ellis (injury), Nate Thompson (injury), Kevin Hayes (injury), Wade Allison (injury), Kevin Connauton (healthy)
