The Flyers try to avoid a 14th straight defeat and a winless month of January against the same team that they opened the month again, the Los Angeles Kings.
The Kings turned in a dominant performance on Saturday night with a 6-3 victory to snap the Flyers seven-game points streak.
A short trip from San Jose to Los Angeles marks the next stop on this post-holiday road trip, as the Flyers try to extend the points streak to eight games against the Kings.
The Los Angeles Kings entered the game averaging 2.54 goals per game, but struck for four in the opening period. That helped them cruise to a win over the Flyers on New Year’s Eve by a score of 5-3.
The Flyers played a game against the Kings that was sloppy and frustrating. Yet, there they were, playing in overtime. The overtime featured its share of near-misses as well. The winning streak is over, and now the Flyers need to regroup or their comeback effort this season will fizzle out.
The Flyers eight-game winning streak came to an end in a 3-2 loss to the Los Angeles Kings in a shootout on Thursday night at Wells Fargo Center.
