The Flyers look to rebound from their worst loss of the year as they take on the Jets at home tonight. Can they do better without Chris Pronger than they did last time out?
The Philadelphia Flyers will hope to do a little bit better in their second game without defenseman Chris Pronger than they did during their first. After he went down with a high stick to the eye in a win Monday, Philadelphia allowed five goals, tied for a season high, in a 5-1 loss Wednesday to the Canadiens that was the team's most lopsided loss of the season. After a hot start, the Flyers have now lost three of their past four games.
Tonight, the Flyers (5-3-1) host a Winnipeg Jets team that has also lost three of its past four contests. The Jets (2-5-1) return to action after suffering a narrow 2-1 defeat to the New York Rangers on Monday. The squad will hope to benefit from Pronger's absence after scoring just 17 goals during their first eight games, a statistic that ranks them 24th in the NHL.
