The Flyers suffered their first loss on home ice in a disappointing effort against the Anaheim Ducks. They’ll look to correct that when they welcome in the Carolina Hurricanes.

The Hurricanes swept the four-game season series last season as each win was just by a single goal. The Flyers had scored three unanswered goals before a late goal by Martin Necas sent the first game to overtime. It was Brent Burns who gave the Canes the win on Oct. 29. Right before Christmas, the Flyers almost completed the comeback down 6-2 heading into the third period but fell one goal short in a 6-5 loss on Dec. 23.

The Hurricanes needed one goal just over two minutes into the game to defeat the Flyers in a 1-0 shutout on Mar. 9. Finishing off the sweep, Necas tied the game in the final second and Sebastian Aho scored in overtime in a 5-4 win on Mar. 18.

Philadelphia Flyers

After a letdown game against the Ducks, the Flyers have finally made a change to their lineup. Morgan Frost will return after missing the last six games. Ryan Poehling will come out as the PHD line will be broken up for the first time this year. Frost will center the third line with Scott Laughton moves to the fourth line.

Travis Konecny  continued to put the puck in the net as he now leads the team with eight goals and 11 points. He’s found another gear after a career season last year. Cam Atkinson has a three game point streak in which he’s collected five of his eight total points. Travis Sanheim also has six points in his last five games.

Carter Hart returns to the net where he has an impressive 2.18 GAA and .924 SV%. He has once again been the backbone for this team.

Carolina Hurricanes

The Hurricanes are often known as a powerhouse team in the Eastern Conference. It hasn’t quite gone that way for them early on. While they are scoring at a high-rate per game (3.67), they’re also giving them up at an even higher rate (3.89). The latter number has them ranked 30th in the league.

Martin Necas, Jesperi Kotkaniemi, and Seth Jarvis are all tied for the team lead in points (8). Fresh off a hat trick, Teuvo Teravainen leads with seven goals. 14 Hurricanes have at least one goal and 19 skaters have at least a point as well.

Sebastian Aho has 13 goals and 26 career points against the Flyers. Andrei Svechnikov made his season debut in the Hurricanes last game after suffering a season-ending ACL tear in his right knee last March.
