- Flyers are coming off of a 4-3 SO loss to the Islanders in which they squandered a 3-1 lead due to a horrific 3rd period effort.
- Wayne Simmonds will look to continue his hot play; he is tied for the most points in the NHL over the past month.

- Flyers are one of only 6 teams to have 5 or more players with 13+ goals; rather impressive stat given how putrid the offense was to start the season.
